Sony CSL authors: Fran├žois Pachet


I claim in this chapter that the future of content lies not only in the efficiency of its distribution, but rather in the nature of content creation, an issue which has so far been left mostly untouched by technology research. More precisely, I claim that the future of content creation lies primarily in the ability of individuals to realize their creative potential themselves, rather than picking up existing content out of seemingly infinite repositories. This ability is itself closely dependent on the existence of tools that reveal us, rather than tools that connect people together in ever expanding networks of acquaintances.

Keywords: active listening, reflexive interactions
