Shel Israel has a great, forward-looking post about how MySpace, blogging, and other online, community building tools might affect the future workforce.
This only underlines how much technology can affect how our world works and changes. He may not be dead on in his prediction, but it isn’t hard to believe it that it will come true.
What’s more, it reminds me of the importance of at least trying to keep pace with how people communicate and gather, even if I don’t participate in those modes regularly. Just knowing how MySpace and SecondLife operate as a social structure helps me understand where part of the world is going with how it interacts with itself.
