"...I studied neuroscience a bit, and the neurons inside your brain tend to resemble social structures, so our individuals can be social neurons. Perhaps they different from biological neurons in structure, but the theory can be similar. We can see how people create their own input and output channels to each other. We all have many different channels to connect to different people in different contexts. If we could bring such things into a technical setting we wouldn’t need to take care of each channel manually all the time--otherwise we get totally overloaded. Many people are concerned with this right now, information overload. It is already a huge burden. How can I deal with it all? How can I manage to keep up with blogs, microblogs, social networks, and so on? Technologies can try to simplify all of this. By sharing such information, more people can join and more information can be shared..."
