This issue of Context, and specifically Context Management, is the very thing that I’ve been writing about over at OpposableMind.com for the past couple of months. I agree whole heartedly that there are too many choices of CMSs, and as I commented on Jono’s link above, that’s just a small representation of the choice fatigue that is being created by the content explosion that is occuring as a result of all of those CMSs. Context Management is the idea that each person can leverage their own signal-to-noice filter out to the masses, and Amazon-sytle, let the collaborative filtering process decide which filters are best (recursive filtering, gotta love it!). Thanks Matt, for being someone that others want to stop impressing. Otherwise, I may never have found this chain of links.
