Borrowing credibility

By , posted on Thursday, April 17th, 2008 at 9:20 am.

Stephen commented and questioned yesterday on my post as to why the appearance of Lee in TED gave what he did more credibility. You can read my reply to him and as most of what this post was going to be is there already, here is a slightly different idea. 

I mentioned that presenters lend credibility to those venues that ask them to present and those venues in turn gain credibility as a venue to present, based on the presenters that had presented in the past. A nice little circle. So, if you put this idea together with the Socialcropping post you can start to see where what Lee mentioned in his talk between 4:56 and 5:26 about using Youtube to share research ideas, something interesting comes up… hasn’t this “cropping” always been going on? More later… I hope…
