Google wijzigt geavanceerd zoeken

Google wijzigt geavanceerd zoeken | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Zoekbedrijf geeft sociaal netwerk voorrang boven complexe zoekopdrachten met Booleaanse operator.

Tot verontwaardiging van vele informatieprofessionals, journalisten en andere 'veelzoekers' heeft Google de optie geavanceerd zoeken veranderd. De Booleaanse operator +, waarmee de zoeker Google kon dwingen naar bepaalde woorden te zoeken, is afgeschaft. In plaats daarvan moeten gebruikers dubbele aanhalingstekens gebruiken. Voor wie veel zoekt, betekent het intypen van dubbele aanhalingstekens om een woord ("klaver") meer werk dan het plusteken voor een woord (+klaver).

How to stem the info overload. Curation is a great way to deal with filter bubbles. How to aggregate, collective curation!

Sharing a link, tagging photos CAN make an impact and can transform learning.

How Algorithms and Editors Can Work Together To Get Users Clicking On Content That Matters | Mashable

How Algorithms and Editors Can Work Together To Get Users Clicking On Content That Matters | Mashable | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

In March, Eli Pariser gave a popular TED talk about “filter bubbles”. 

Pariser is concerned that web personalization is only showing us content we "like," and not content we need.

 

As users increasingly get their news from curated social channels, this trend has the potential to isolate us and damage our world view.

 

But he proposed some solutions at the Mashable Media Summit.

Pariser pointed out the critical things that social personalization gets wrong when it comes to content:

- Anticipation...

- Risk Taking...

- Big Picture...

- Pairing...

- Social Importance...

- Mind-Blowingness...

- Trust...

 

In his talk, Pariser noted that nearly every major online media company and platform is moving toward some level of personalization....

Reinventing Discovery by Michael Nielsen : Uncertain Principles

Reinventing Discovery by Michael Nielsen : Uncertain Principles | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

The central thesis here is an idea that's become almost cliche: "The Internet changes everything!" The book argues that with the recent revolution in information technologies, it's become possible to do science in entirely new ways. The ability to connect to vast numbers of other researchers, and even ordinary citizens, who might have useful expertise to bring to bear on a scientific problem opens the possibility of solving problems that would be completely intractable in the traditional mode of scientists working alone or in small groups. Web-based scientific enterprises like the Polymath Project and Galaxy zoo have generated impressive scientific results, proving new theorems and discovering new classes of astronomical objects by using the Internet to network together large numbers of people to tackle the problem in a distributed way. These projects are potentially the leading edge of a revolution in the way science is done.

I've been playing around with using both storify and scoop it in combination. I like to use storify for events that are related to my topic on scoop.it and then add as a link.
