Nothing new

Arun Katiyar (CEO of Seraja) writes:
"Essentially, what we are looking at is this: People are willing contributors of knowledge and their time. They need a simple system that helps them contribute when they want, from where they want and how much they want. And, more critically, if they need to stay anonymous, that need must be respected.
Mobiles and the Internet are making this possible. There are a number of event entry mechanisms which are coming up that help make sense of the unstructured data that digital devices capture."

Nothing new on the horizon Mr. Katiyar.
When I was little my mother used to talk on the balcony with our neighbors.
They exchanged opinions and pictures (on paper).
They talked about TV programs and movies.
They gossiped.
Nowadays, the balcony has a broader audience.
Young people post their movies on YOUTUBE, discuss on forums, chat online.
They talk with neighbors thousand of miles away.
This is called “Communication”.
