Doc Searls asks about great driving songs – pounding on the steering wheel – or potsw as he’s calling it. But in a slight twist, and the only reason I’m blogging this, he’s asking people not to post their thoughts on his blog, but to post on their own blog. And use technorati tags to create the master list of these songs.
This is an interesting way to have a dialog, across sites. Rather than Doc’s entry becoming a destination where many of us go (“generate traffic”) and talk together, he’s using an aggregation service that will capture all (ideally) of the responses across the blogosphere, but using a tool or site (technorati) that is vaguely central, rather than our individual sites which you might imagine as external nodes.
It’s fairly straightforward but still, an innovative approach, since the sense of bloggy space is treated differently.
