    From Leo Laporte blog

    It makes me feel like everything I’ve posted over the past four years on Twitter, Jaiku, Friendfeed, Plurk, Pownce, and, yes, Google Buzz, has been an immense waste of time. I was shouting into a vast echo chamber where no one could hear me because they were too busy shouting themselves. All this time I’ve been pumping content into the void like some chatterbox Onan. How humiliating. How demoralizing.

    But there’s a kind of media entropy at work that nobody talks about. Generally speaking, the newer the media, the less impactful it is. You have to work harder for less influence. Sometimes it’s hard for some to grasp this, because influence is always a combination of 1) the media; 2) the number of listeners/followers/readers; and 3) how influential your communication is.
