Seth Godin's New Digital Divide

is seth correct...or not radical enough? Posted by Hello

[NOTE: This is an identical version of an article that first appeared on my Blog Core Values "deep blogology" site.]

Seth's post "The New Digital Divide" is shaking up the blogosphere.

NOTE: Be sure to read Seth's entire post. All I reproduce here is a list of Digerati vs. Left Behinds.

Here is how Seth Godin astutely separates the smart, hip, thought leaders (digerati)...

...from the not so smart, square, trend followers (the left behind).

The New Digital Divide

The Digerati

(1) Uses Firefox

(2) Knows who Doc Searls is

(3) Uses RSS Reader

(4) Has a blog

(5) Reads BoingBoing (or Slashdot)

(6) Bored with Flickr

(7) Gets news from Google

The Left Behind

(1) Uses Internet Explorer

(2) Already has a doctor, thanks very much

(3) RSS?

(4) Reads blogs (sometimes)

(5) Watches the Tonight Show

(6) Flickr?

(7) Gets news from Peter Jennings

While I agree with all the above points, I think Seth's analyis can be expanded.

It's a good start, but I wish to enlarge upon it.

See my next post.

NOW...what do you think of Seth's division?

Into what category do you fall?

Are you a Digerati...or a Left Behind?

Email me your opinion.
