On this podcast, Cathi Bond talks about the Civil War Today, and Virginia Heffernan’s take on it (via New York Times). Cathi likes the idea of an immersive ‘you are there’ historical experience, but Nora wants more context. What do you think? Meanwhile, Nora Young points to Trendwatching’s May briefing on The F Factor: “F” as in “friend.” Social shopping and social recommenders are certainly taking off, but Nora wonders if more people need to do it (or at least more of her friends) to boost the value of recommendations. Perhaps they work best as a rough and ready guide to topics you don’t know a lot about.
