Imperfectly Famous

David Weinberger had some interesting comments at ROFLcon on the nature of “fame” and Web 2.0. He says, “perfection is the enemy of credibility” from which I’m led to conclude that we ought to be engaged in the pursuit of credibility, not perfection. But I have to say that in the analysis of what is ‘less perfect’ and ‘more credible’, I begin to see a pursuit of what can really only be described as ‘more perfectly imperfect.’ In other words, imperfection is a style toward which many content creators strive. Content is only credible if it’s imperfect in the right way.
