Do you notice how we’ve started to use “friend” as a verb…like, “Yeah, I’m going to friend you”.
So it’s become a verb, adding to it’s meaning the social actions taken on the web.
This is a great interview, btw, Jon Lebkowsky is a fellow Austinite.
Jon Lebkowsky: When you mention friends, it makes me think about how we’ve started to use “friend” as a verb…
Clay Shirky: Yeah, I’m going to friend you – yes, exactly.
Jon Lebkowsky: So are we changing the meaning of that word, of what it means to be a friend.
Clay Shirky: I don’t think we’re changing it so much as we’re adding to it, which is to say that I think people still have a sense of the old meaning of friend, as someone you would do a favor to if they were in some real trouble.
