The Collectors

Paul Chenoweth talks about a phenomenon he calls The Collectors.

My original premise stands… the “Collector” phenomena warrants exploration. There are numerous subcultures and patterns that have evolved in the short history of social networks…this is one. You may choose to join the ranks of collectors. You may choose to ignore the piper’s flute. You may choose to chuckle (as I do) at those who manage to acquire wealth (mostly in ego currency…some, for short-term financial gains) via time and energy on social networking sites. My preference would be to classify collectors as part of the background noise and spam that runs counter to the potential for productive online community building…but that is just me.

I think he sums it up perfectly. On another note, as I know Paul and I love to tease him, the title The Collectors sounds like a horror movie. Heh.
