Semantic technology has been around for years and was supposed to save us from information overload. So far, it failed. The Semantic Web or Web 3.0 is still Tim Berners-Lee's dream, and good old Web 2.0 keeps drowning us in oceans of content. But while social media is certainly the cause of this deluge of information, it can also be the solution: first, as it provides us with a huge amount of data that we can use to qualify this information through big data technology; second, because it educated and created a need for millions to become human curators. By combining algorithms and humans, we reinvent media while bringing the meaning back to the Web.
Will you spend Saturday night in a crowded bar, or curled up with a good book? Is your ideal holiday adventure sports with a large group of mates and, or anywhere more sedate destination with a few good friends? Maybe your answers to these questions are clear – you'd love one option and hate another – or maybe you find yourself somewhere between the two extremes.

We all exist somewhere on the spectrum between extroverts and introverts, and different circumstances can make us feel more one way or the other. Extraverts, a term popularised by psychologist Carl Jung at the beginning of the 20th Century, seem to dominate our world, either because they really are more common, or because they just make most of the noise.

This is so much the case that some have even written guides on how to care for introverts, and nurture their special talents.

"In 2007, the world was a different place. The App Store didn’t exist yet, and the iPhone had just been announced. Steve Jobs wanted consumers to fill their iPhones with web apps. Before they debuted the App Store, Apple tried to prove that web apps could be as easy to use and as responsive as native apps. Although web apps didn’t succeed the way Jobs originally intended them to, that doesn’t mean they’re not worth exploring."
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight: Michelle Lhooq: 'The increased predominance of mobile devices—not to mention our clingy dependence on them—has sparked a boom of ambitious apps for phones and tablets that are case studies for storytelling in the...
bYears before Steve Jobs introduced the iPad to the world, tablet computers made regular appearances in science fiction shows. Fans of “Star Trek” will remember ensigns tapping on digital tablets or asking an officer to scribble a signature on one.
I also spent many hours wandering around the cavernous exhibit hall booths in addition to meeting with bookish people like the librarian contributors to @LittleeLit‘s blog and ‘think tank’. In person introductions are particularly sweet, after months of contact over email, video-chat, Twitter and other digital means.
Meeting others so like-minded probably represents one the most energizing aspects of attending any large conference. And librarians are one energized group! I found nearly everyone in attendance to be sharp, thoughtful and focused on the future of libraries in the digital age.

"Years before Steve Jobs introduced the iPad to the world, tablet computers made regular appearances in science fiction shows. Fans of “Star Trek” will remember ensigns tapping on digital tablets or asking an officer to scribble a signature on one.
