Getting to the front of the train

Russell Davies used the phrase “getting to the front of the train” in a recent blog and it struck a chord, not because of the transport meaning but the need to stay one step ahead of the crowd. My search of the web, deep reading in science, advertising, ideas, politics just keeps bringing me back to the crowded central section of the tube train. Enthusiasm is one thing, but there is not enough time in the day to be up on everything – which is the frustration. 

The whole “wisdom of the crowd” thing is also proving less reliable and Andrew Keen, the demonised questioner of web 2.0 is making a lot more sense now.
