Google Currents is to Social Media as Justin Bieber is to the Beatles [ReadWriteWeb]

Not a Currents fan…

You could also call it the sterilization of the social web. Just like today's new Twitter redesign makes things nice and pretty for non-technical users - Google Currents is infinitely friendlier and more accessible than any RSS reader - even Google's own Reader. Unfortunately, in the current application that ease of use comes at a great cost: Google Currents does away with many of the best parts of the social web. It sings a catchy tune, but there's far less life inside the experience. It's not just a bummer, either - it's a threat to what's great about blogging.
