I think it is true that in all of human history there has never been as much writing and information available to the common person as there is today. Articles, blogs, newspapers, books and reviews, etc.
What I love about the evolving cocktail of cloud tools available is that a broad community of individuals discover, sift and share what they find helpful. Between CRC-Voices, Calvin-in-Common, Twitter, Facebook and my network of face to face persons they sift, process, and pass along what they find. I in turn need to do my part to share back. Overall it offers a rich stew of worked over material. Good stuff.
