  • If Web 1.0 was about connecting people to things, Web 2.0 is about connecting people to people.  If you are going to do Web 2.0 well, you need to spend a bit of time curating people.  If I’m following you, it’s likely that I’m also interested in the people you are following.  Even more interesting are the differences in the lists of people we are following.  Curating people is a black-belt 21st Century Skill™ that you won’t see listed in any formal lists.From TEDx: We recommend organizers carefully curate their audience -- selecting diverse attendees who can contribute to the conversation.
