Frank Rose:  "When JWT Intelligence announced its "10 Trends for 2014 and Beyond" recently, trend #1 was "immersive experiences." Certainly you can feel this in New York: From Punchdrunk's Sleep No More (now running for nearly three years) to MoMA's Rain Room to Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room, people are willing to pay top dollar or line up for hours to experience something all-encompassing and beyond the ordinary. But why?"

cyneth's curator insight, December 18, 2013 5:14 PM

In my view, the term "experience economy" is morphing into the "immersive"  economy - and you will see the rise of more "immersive technology" to facilitate.  Emergence has become Immersive.

5 Reasons Why Inbound Marketing Is a Smart Investment for 2014

5 Reasons Why Inbound Marketing Is a Smart Investment for 2014 | digitalassetman | Scoop.it

Are you looking to shorten the sales cycle for your business in 2014? Are you looking to take more of a strategic approach to marketing that can be analyzed and measured? Would you be interested in reducing your lead generation costs by 62% in 2014?

 

Actually, content marketing is nothing new, in fact, John Deere started using content marketing in 1895 when he published a magazine called The Furrow. The goal of the magazine was to seen as a resource for their customers.

 

The Furrow had educational content and focused on teaching farmers how to be more fruitful business owners. The magazine now has a 1.5 million circulation in 40 countries and 12 different languages.

"The security of users' data is critical, which is why we've invested so much in encryption and fight for transparency around government requests for information," says Google CEO Larry Page.

 

I still believe that encryption does not complete the job. The ultimate security is relinquishing control of the encryption key and passing it on directly to the user. Very similar to what mega.co.nz already does. Of course, if you lose your password you lose your data but somewhere along the line the user has to be responsible for his/her own data.

Jennifer Ryan's curator insight, November 10, 2013 5:04 PM

This is right up my alley. Looking forward to reading about trends and impacts.

Erica Bilder's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:11 AM

I have nothing to add to Robin Good's terrific insights:

 Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Picture these scenarios:
 

The Victoria & Albert Museum, its collections depleted by massive repatriation, becomes a travel & tourism guide and international affairs ambassador in an increasingly globalized community
 The Freud Museum, in the spirit of its namesake, becomes a provider of mental retreat and therapy (I wonder if the docents will be licensed psychoanalysis?)

These, according to the 40-page report “Museums in a Digital Age” from Arups, may actually be some of the likely new profiles of prestigious museums 25 years from now.  

 

The report projects that:

 

"...future museums will see personalised content, new levels of sustainability and a visitor experience extended beyond present expectations of time and space."

 

A rising desire among audiences to shape their own cultural experiences (“Collaborative Curation”)
 The opportunity for museum to become “curators of experiences” that extend beyond the boundaries of traditional exhibits or programs, or beyond the walls of the museum itself.

 

Source: http://futureofmuseums.blogspot.it/2013/11/museums-in-future-view-from-across-pond.html ;

 The idea of "collaborative curation" of museum collections by the actual users-visitors, is particularly fascinating.  "Just as current consumer trends shift towards collaborative consumption, in the future, museums may employ new patterns of collaborative curation,allowing for individually curated experiences and giving the public greater control over both content and experience.
Increased visitor participation will allow people themselves to reinvent the museum experience, enabling content that can adapt to the preferences of users in real-time." 

 

My comment: If you are a curator and are interested in exploring and understanding what the future of large collections and museums may look like and which forces are going to be driving such changes, this is a good report to read.

 

Insightful. Inspiring 8/10

“As part of our agreement, we’ll pay Getty Images a fee for the data they share and will help make sure that their images get proper attribution,” Pinterest notes today. “We’re just getting started with Getty Images but we’re excited about the possibilities of what their data can help us deliver.”

 

Getty says that it will be providing two pieces of technology for this service. The first is its PicScout image recognition technology — which will crawl Pinterest to identify Getty Images on Pinterest. It will then link up those images with Getty’s metadata using its Connect API. “We’ll get a photo credit for our images on Pinterest’s site and a link back. Pinterest users get more context and have more fun,” Getty noted today.

Peter Azzopardi's curator insight, October 29, 2013 6:46 PM

The article implies that IT will continue to play a major role in businesses. When it comes to either a Private or a Hybrid cloud I agree, in fact I am sure that most biusinesses will opt for one of these options. Nonetheless, startups and / or businesses with low security requirements will position themselves to take advantage of the low costs associated with the Public cloud.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:19 PM

"When it comes to cloud computing there are two common pitfalls that businesses tend to fall into: over-estimating its power and under-estimating its potential effect. The former often leaves businesses under-provisioning for their infrastructure, trying to push their entire IT estate into a single platform rather than using cloud computing as part of the larger IT strategy. Meanwhile, many businesses also find themselves under-estimating the potential of the cloud. Merely lifting your IT environment into the cloud may offer some savings (in time or resource), but it's not going to be the IT 'revolution' that many are expecting."

Guest blog by James Rourke ,IQequity

These ‘tags’ we call metadata and metadata is fast becoming an important feature of the way we find, use and relate digital media on the web. People are now waking up to the use of DAM and the importance of metadata in the future of the web; a world where search engines are intelligent, where similar data is linked via shared metadata, where everybody is a publisher and has a ‘cloud’ of information which allows them to connect with likeminded people and be viewed within the context of their interests. We are reaching the point where the devices we use to access the web are ‘learning’ information about us and utilising that information to make our lives easier, and this is where metadata really comes into its own as it allows a simple image, video or document to become an ‘asset’ to us, rich in information and consequently far more valuable.

Sentient code: An inside look at Stephen Wolfram's utterly new, insanely ambitious computational paradigm | digitalassetman | Scoop.it
Wolfram gave me a glimpse under the hood in an hour-long conversation. And I have to say, what I saw was amazing.

-

Google wants to understand objects and things and their relationships so it can give answers, not just results. But Wolfram wants to make the world computable, so that our computers can answer questions like “where is the International Space Station right now.” That requires a level of machine intelligence that knows what the ISS is, that it’s in space, that it is orbiting the Earth, what its speed is, and where in its orbit it is right now.
