  • fuzheado fuzheado Jodi, thanks much for the comment. Yes, I'm not totally satisfied with the dichotomy: 'crowd/audience' and 'corporate/government'

    I'm eager to hear of other ways to characterize the entities while still keeping the chart readable. :) As discussed earlier in the slides, I'm not happy with 'pro' and 'am' as the distinction. But I'm still searching for a better way to describe this and welcome more ideas.

  • jodischneider jodischneider I really like the vision from slide 124 -- categorizing by who’s supplying the content, and who’s curating (government/business vs. crowd). These colors, blue and red, don’t really signify crowd and professionals to me -- so I hope you find an even better way to present this idea, which seems to be a/the core message of the talk. Your model is great because it makes sense of 'we need journalists' and 'harnass the crowd' both at once -- while indicating the complexity. 3 years ago
