The quote you included from Eleanor Davies is very well put. I'm getting the sense that one of the early 2010 trends is going to be scaling back on the information we consume and share, or in other words, a scaling back of engagement. I've already heard this from a handful of clients--that they are just too burnt out on social media, and that they are frankly not seeing any benefit to their engagement anyway. I can't say I fully share their feelings on this, but I do sense that they're not alone.

In any case, Eleanor's point is succinct and elegantly stated. My guess is that someone with her insight and articulation is well situated in the real world.

Interesting post, as usual.
