Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Very useful Henry Jenkins quote

I always find it the most tiresome of conversation stoppers whenever anyone says “Twitter/Facebook/MySpace/Flickr/[insert name of social networking application here] is stupid. I don’t care what you had for breakfast. I don’t want to find out what my friends are up to over the web etc etc etc.” Boring!

In a nice quote from his summary of his SXSW 2008 Keynote, Henry Jenkins’ words are so much more eloquent and polite than mine:

Humans do not engage in activities that are meaningless. If you think you see people doing things you find meaningless, look again and try to understand what the activities mean for them.

He’s actually talking about the activities of fans, but I think it goes a long way toward explaining just about everything I ever find interesting.
