The Challenge of Building the Semantic Web

The Challenge of Building the Semantic Web | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

The Semantic Web is often described as an extension of the current Web. The idea of what extending the Web should look like can be seen in Linked Data.

In order to better understand the importance of Linked Data, one has to understand the context in which it emerged, i.e. the problem it has been trying to solve.

Can Newspapers Re-Invent Themselves As Data Curated Platforms?

Can Newspapers Re-Invent Themselves As Data Curated Platforms? | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

Mathew Ingram makes a great point in this post I discovered thanks to Morten Myrstad: one way for Media groups to re-invent themselves is to think of themselves as data platforms and not newspapers any more.

 

 

Great point.

 

But I see one more: opening up to other news platforms too even if competing.

 

I appreciate this clearly faces cultural resistance but if you think of it really as a platform, you shouldn't be afraid to interface it with your competitors' just like Twitter has a LinkedIn App.

 

One missed opportunity I see that reflects this is the WSJ Facebook App: it's a great concept to let your readers remix the headlines but why not do it with non-WSJ content too? I'd love to see through a crowd sourced effort from the most WSJ active readers and curators how some WSJ-news relate to other news from say the FT or the Economist.

 

I’m going to make my music-industry analogy again (can’t escape my background…) but right now media groups think of building a record store or a radio station with their own artists. Imagine a radio that would play only Universal Music Group artists? It would suck, right? Yet, that’s what most media are today.

 

Don't you think the industry needs bold moves like this?

Earthquakes and Natural Disasters (or Why Ebooks are Important) | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

The image at right is from the 4th floor stacks of the Botany and Horticulture Library. They lost 8 shelf sections to the earthquake. Do you see how the collapsed bookshelf is resting on the window? The window didn’t break because it’s made of bomb proof glass and was installed after 11 September.

Hypothes.is Intro

We think relatively simple tools can help us all improve the quality of information on the Internet, and by extension in the greater world around us.
Hypothes.is will be a distributed, open-source platform for the collaborative evaluation of information. It will enable sentence-level critique of written words combined with a sophisticated yet easy-to-use model of community peer-review. It will work as an overlay on top of any stable content, including news, blogs, scientific articles, books, terms of service, ballot initiatives, legislation and regulations, software code and more-without requiring participation of the underlying site.
It is based on a new draft standard for annotating digital documents currently being developed by the Open Annotation Collaboration, a consortium that includes the Internet Archive, NISO (National Information Standards Organization), O'Reilly Books, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and a number of academic institutions.

The cover of my book "The Semantic Sphere" (in english) | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

"New advances in digital media offer unprecedented memory capacities, an omnipresent channel of communication, and ever-growing computational power.
We must ask ourselves how we can exploit this medium in order to augment our own social cognitive processes for human development.
Through a combination of a profound knowledge of humanities and social sciences, and an understanding of computer sciences, Pierre Lévy proposes a collaborative construction of a global hyper-cortex, coordinated by a computable metalanguage.
By fully recognizing the symbolic and social nature of human cognition, we could transform our current, opaque, global brain into a reflexive collective intelligence."

Tools, not Trends | Academic Librarian

Tools, not Trends: http://t.co/olDHo4e3...

 

"...Tools and tech­nolo­gies you absolutely need to use, and what you can ignore for the time being.

In aca­d­e­mic libraries, it means know­ing the tools that stu­dents really want and use ver­sus the tools that trend­watch­ing librar­i­ans claim they should be want­ing and using. You can see some of of those tools in the Edu­cause Cen­ter for Applied Research National Study of Under­grad­u­ate Stu­dents and Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy 2011.

It’s worth skim­ming to get an idea of what tech­nol­ogy stu­dents use and how they use it.

Those who believe that stu­dents avidly adopt every infor­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and social media trend–and who tell us this is essen­tial for librar­i­ans to do as well–might get a few surprises."
