Implications of the 1% rule
An article entitled, What is the 1% rule, relates that “… if you get a group of 100 people online then one will create content, 10 will “interact” with it (commenting or offering improvements) and the other 89 will just view it.”
The ‘read/write’ web, web 2.0, seems defined by user-as-content-author, and these statistics are sobering.
I’ve thought before: “The web 1.0 era might be defined as t0 up to the point where the author:user started to drop precipitously away from 1:1, and web 2.0 started when author:user passed through this minimum point. Will we reach 1:1 again? Maybe that’s Web 3.0. And pushing us to higher levels of content authoring (a ratio author:user great than 1? Blogjects?) will require higher levels of social information literacy.
