Paul Ford (heard on NPR’s All Things Considered) delivers unique insights on his personal site - the web offers a completely new medium that fulfills our base need for our opinions to matter and be heard - allowing us to comment, comment on the comment, and execute the most basic form of commentary:
A boolean or integer value is the digital equivalent of a grunt. You can’t get any more basic than a like, or a thumbs-up, or a favorite.
On the web, people must be heard. They’ll demand it. How are you showing that you’re willing to listen?
