The Net is a way to work around the silos that substitute for it.
This came to me after seeing “Twitter is over capacity.” for the Nth time.
Twitter will be better off when it’s the best of its own breed, rather than the only place to do what can only be done there.
That’s why questions like Dave’s are essential.
Not saying that exclusivity, or exclusive advantages, are wrong and should not be rewarded. I am saying that walled gardens are inherently inadequate in a networked world.
Twitter is a terrific tool that needs to be just as open at the back end as Dave wants it to be at the front. Not sure how to do that, but I am sure it needs to be done.
