Over at PR 2.0, I just rolled out The Conversation Prism, with a little help (well a lot actually) from Jesse Thomas of JESS3.

A visual evolution of the Social Media Starfish originally introduced by Robert Scoble and later modified by Darren Barefoot, The Conversation Prism helps chart online conversations between the people that populate communities as well as the networks that connect the Social Web. It’s our contribution to a new era of media education and literacy – feel free to use and share.

    This is fantastic. Not only visually appealing, but so comprehensive and relevant. Oh, and I love the fact that hi5 is included in the prism.
    You rock!
