“Content liberation is a two-part process that results in a piece of content uprooted from its original context and tied to a user. It works like this:
Distillation: First, the content is stripped down to its raw essence. That essence could be an article, a tweet, a recipe, even a full webpage. What matters is that you end up with all wheat and no chaff. Distilled content is not, however, without attribution. The content never forgets where it is from and neither do you.
Association: After distillation, the raw content is free-floating and in need of a new home. This is done by tying that content to a user. The typical approach is to have a user account or a desktop folder where the content can reside.
The result of this process is a carbon copy of the purest form of the original content. This liberated copy is tied to a user and its fate is in their hands.”
