We're All Publishers Now
 
The world is becoming a haze of content, with your laptop, cellphone or tablet your only hope of sorting it out, of making your way to whatever reality interests you most. That's pretty much where Trevor Young has arrived on his PR Warrior blog, and it's something we've been feeling as we've trolled for Flack Me topics over the past months. Information starts with "I" and you are the hub for whatever interests you most. It's not a media world anymore so much as a digital conversation, or clamor, as President Obama may be discovering to his chagrin in putting off his intention to retaliate against the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Trevor Young suggests two "core drivers" of the new information setting — people are doing their own research via the Internet and there's no longer any great barrier to publishing content. Google will get you some attention if you're serious about joining in. 

So we're ending this week feeling as though we're in a new content-mediated world. What that means for leadership and consensus is worth pondering for more than a weekend, but have a good one! But stay within range of a wireless connection, unless you're using your cellphone.
