#CritLit2010 Context – Power

In this referred post Streams of Content, Limited Attention: The Flow of Information through Social Media written by Danah:

“As we continue to move from a broadcast model of information to a networked one, we will continue to see reworkings of the information landscape. Some of what is unfolding is exciting, some is terrifying. The key is not be all utopian or dystopian about it, but to recognize what changes and what stays the same. The future of Web2.0 is about information flow and if you want to help people, help them reach that state. Y’all are setting the tone of the future of information. Keep it exciting and, please, recognize the power that you have!”

What power do networkers have when interacting with Web 2.0 tools? Is power important? Why?
