    Real-Time, Or Not

    It's odd that in a world where technology and connectedness enables us to be more "real-time" than ever in our data-consumption, I feel less and less compelled to care about real-time. We are using more time-shifting than ever with digital downloads, TiVo, syndicated and aggregated news sources.

    The deluge of information really needs to sit for a few days to be filtered. Otherwise, you can spend lots of time on things that aren't actually important.

    Real-Time may be overrated, or perhaps there's a subset of folks who will act in the future as the "front-line" of data consumption, and the rest of us will sit back and consume at our own pace, confident that the front-line is surfacing anything urgent when we need to know about it.
