The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — rebounded from a seven and a half minute gap to explore the mysteries of the Siri platform. As machines give up being trained by us and reciprocate by rewarding us for compliant behavior, our gestures are being finetuned to a social pitch.

While no one was looking, Apple has provided a fresh and easy way of decorating content with social energy, and in the process setting the stage for a renaissance in media influence and strategic thinking. As we produce ever more articulate renderings of our movements through time and space, we build synapses that can hold conversations between events without bothering to ping us for data.
