Prosumer

Thanks to the Internet, we have become both producers and consumers. We are, in the futurist (how old-fashioned the term “futurist” seems now) Alvin Toffler’s unlovely phrase, “prosumers.” We tweet, and post, and update, and blog at the same time we are consuming other people’s digital productions. We are all part of a vast crowd that is unaware of how atomized it is, ignorant of the fact that it is both interconnected and isolated at the same time. – Lee Siegel

Whether it’s this blog or Twitter or Facebook I try to mix up the content between stuff I own/write and stuff that inspires me, which is mostly content I consume first and then retweet or reblog.
