Making sense of the chaos

Bill Joy (co-founder, Sun Microsystems) on the Charlie Rose show:
    Our lives are overwhelmed by all the information coming at us in a very disorganized way. We're going to hunger for something that will make sense of all the chaos--that will look at all the things happening in the world and filter and order them in a way that's personalized to us. That will be the next great revolution--that is something that doesn't take an index of the dead information on the Net, but the live information of things as they are occurring and as they are relevant to us.
The next great revolution is finding focus and relevance in the flood of new information. The next great revolution is personalized news.
