Social Software Blog

Email This Entry

Posted by Dave Evans

Liz [and friends] have started a blog on Social Software at Corante. Knowing Liz, and having met Clay, I'm sure that it will be a very interesting place. It is my belief that games and entertainment spaces will define a lot of the future of social software - I know Clay and I disagree on this. But already we are talking about some play between the blogs and getting some things going. Have fun over there, sounds like a great crew, and we'll all be reading!

Just found your blog and this little blurb. I must say that I totally agree with you and think that entertainment, online gaming and social interaction are set to converge even more than they are at the moment. I've been thinking about this subject for quite some time and in fact have developed a few (so far non-tried) business ideas. Anyway, just wanted to voice my agreement with your statement. Also there is a book "The Experience Economy
by B. Joseph Pine, B. J., II Pine, James H. Gilmore" that explores the concept as the experience being more and more important from a business perspective... good read
