Digital Convergence

Marc Canter is pushing “Digital Lifestyle Aggregation” and Robin Good says “Personal Media Aggregators” are the road to create instant-vertical-communities. Either way, people are agreed that it is the seamless integration of technologies that will add value to our lives, and not one single technology by itself.

I have seen this work in blogdom – it was through email that we found each others blogs, and through RSS that we hear about virtual meetings. And it is through our blogs that we comment on them later. I also see this same convergence in organizations and churches – where it is the combination of multiple events and experiences that give identity to new groups, rather than the singular event. Modularity, rather than Singularity.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
