We know telephones are for talking with people, televisions are for watching programs, and radios are for listening to chat and music. So what is the Web for?
Here are a few suggestions of what is drawing us to the Web: the ability to broadcast ideas and news, access to information, connection to other people, and entrance to communities spring to my mind. Commerce too.
One thing is strikingly clear though – our culture’s pulse is clearly pounding the World Wide Web. One insightful LOCAL example is the Banburyshire Info Facebook group
These recent positive examples of our local community spring out to me.
I also always see people looking for recommended solutions too. A need for a quality builder, a painter and decorater, a child friendly restaurant, a carpet fitter, someone who cleans ovens as a few examples.
Another one was the restaurant owner asking the community where they can source duck eggs for his restaurant. Attempting to buy locally as much as he can.
As business people, we know the challenges of community woes are ours to help fix. After all, that is why we’re in business to solve problems. Isn’t it?
Some of you may know I am an advocate – preacher even, most definatley someone who lives by the thoughts of the Cluetrain Manifesto.
In a large part, the book is the reason I had that extra excitement in starting a business online. Once I had read the book I could see instantly the value of being part of online communities. And then, actively adding value.
They, and others predicted nearly 20 years ago ‘The End of Business as Usual”. It seems they were right. The book is a worthwhile read for anyone in business. Try your local bookshop, or if you must, try Amazon and decide for yourself.
Happy to answer any questions in the comment box if you have any.
