Someone write content, live an experience, have an idea; then it is “consumed” on his Website, Bog, PhotoBlog, SocialNetwork, and then.. this is lost there, can hide, or return to the mainframe, to FRIENDFEED. Is where “Programs hacking Programs” RSS is reshared, commented “allowing a temporary dissemination of the code“, creating discussion, creating new content on Friendfeed and on other feeds.

From Matrix Revolutions transcripts:

The Oracle: Look, see those birds? At some point a program was written to govern them. A program was written to watch over the trees, and the wind, the sunrise, and sunset.

But the other ones, well, we hear about them all the time.
Neo: I’ve never heard of them.
The Oracle: Of course you have. Every time you’ve heard someone say they saw a ghost, or an angel. Every story you’ve ever heard about vampires, werewolves, or aliens is the system assimilating some program that’s doing something they’re not supposed to be doing.
Neo: Programs hacking programs. Why?
The Oracle: They have their reasons, but usually a program chooses exile when it faces deletion.
Neo: And why would a program be deleted?
The Oracle: Maybe it breaks down. Maybe a better program is created to replace it – happens all the time, and when it does, a program can either choose to hide here, or return to The Source.
Neo: The machine mainframe?

Architect: The function of the One is now to return to the Source, allowing a temporary dissemination of the code you carry, reinserting the prime program…
