News Is Free

Here it is, the next stage in the reinvention of how you consume information, and what better name than News Is Free. Blogging is becoming a way of life for some -- to my mind though it represents just the tip of a major socio-cultural-media-iceberg which is going to create an entirely new category of occupation and will transform how we consume news and information.

Individuals will develop net-reputations as experts in specific fields. Products like "New Is Free" will then aggregate the work of these individuals in a form which consumers can customize. The result will force traditional information outlets to transform how they think about the news, and how the filter and present information. This is the next revolution of the Internet -- using the power of all these connected people to make sense of all this connected information.
