I've been getting a lot of great insights from http://del.icio.us/popular -- It's almost like a community weblog that tracks the attention stream of the pioneering technologists. This site essentially documents the collective consciousness of the tech savvy geeks and nerds. It's a way of tracking the buzz of innovation before it hits the mainstream media.
del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site where people keep interesting URL's in a filing cabinets of card catalog-like keywords -- aka tags. It's a metadata brain dump filled with subjective context.

Weinberger eloquently described the dilemma of losing meaning during the quantization process by explaining how the Dewey Decimal Classification system's religion category gives 88 full numbers to Christianity and only one number each to Judaism and Islam -- a disproportionate number of slots were given to one religion over these others due to a cultural bias and a finite number of available categories.

One clear goal for The Echo Chamber documentary is to grow a community of volunteers who can actively participate in the production of this film.
There are a number of collaborative media sites that are popping up that synthesize, recontextulize and disseminate beat reporting and new analysis of current affairs -- Wiki News & Take Back the News (via Weblosky via Dan Gillmor)
The Echo Chamber Project is different in that it is more like a collaborative investigative journalism project that is dealing with a fairly fixed data set of 40 hours of interview footage and 35+ hours of news clippings.
The burning questions that I have is:
* Should I focus on developing a volunteer community that is ordered and centralized at a community blog here at EchoChamberProject.com?
* Should this volunteer community be chaotic and decentralized throughout the entire blogosphere?
* Or should this volunteer force be some combination of order and chaos?
