We keep hearing about the Participation Age. In fact, Sun as a company is a big part of this new world.
But, is there really equal participation throughout the internet? Jakob Nielsen tackles this issue in his latest article, "Participation Inequality - Encouraging More Users to Contribute."
This is a very interesting article and really highlights how the current internet participation is dominated by the few. This article reminded me how the loudest person in a room full of people can dominate the conversation. And, I also think there is a difference between participating with the entire world and participating within a group of people you know. I believe the latter is much easier for people to do. I know it is for me.
Anyway, I'm sure I'll be referring back to this article as I work on projects within Sun to promote participation and collaboration. I hope you find it interesting as well.
