Back to basics

Ian Ketecheson nails it in a recent post: “Putting the ‘are’ in social media”.

Media is the plural of medium. There is no is in media. The media(ums) – blogging, podcasting, tagging, wiki’s, flickr, digg, Second Life, etc. – enable the social aspects of the web: conversations, collaboration, and collective knowledge sharing.

Simple, to the point, and bang on. Good to remember as we navigate the waters!
