A new scarce resource emerged at layer i+1: relationships between the people who consumed that web content.

I know I shouldn’t respond before finishing reading but I’m so excited with your articles! Thanks!

Regarding connections between connected people. Wouldn’t you say this is a parallel to google’s problem? I mean, don’t they share the same layer i?

The fact more and more people where connected creates the need to organise the relationships, at the same time they also produce more content which requires organising too.

I get the impression that both Google and Facebook also give raise to the same scarce resource: “attention” managing attention is in need for solutions.

Such a great post so far!
