Eric Schmidt: The Future of Magazines Is on Tablets

Eric Schmidt: The Future of Magazines Is on Tablets | newmedia, internet and users | Scoop.it

Eric Schmidt has seen the future of magazines, and it's on the tablet. Schmidt may envision a future for magazines, but he doesn't see much of one for long-form content. He believes attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. "I don't think we'll go back to books," he said. "There's a tremendous amount of reading, but more ADD type of reading."

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:05 AM

Google's Chairman is not the first one to make the connexion between the future of publishing and tablets but he also adds an insightful point for content curators and editors : the long form is gone and we're not going back to it, he believes.


This trend is therefore not just a change of technology platform but also a change of format and reading habits where the ability to quickly add context in a short form will be key.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:25 AM

Google's Chairman is not the first one to make the connexion between the future of publishing and tablets and we can wonder where we are on this trend.


While the media have been quick to see the tablets save them, it was were not even mentioned as a posible usage in Steve Jobs' iPad keynote launch. And today, we keep seeing reports of disappointment on this category.


Long time to cross the chasm?

Inventing the future of publishing through human curated big data

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.

In the website it describe Google Glass as a Wearable computers which is a very interesting way to say it, cause I dont think Google Glass can do everything computer can do, but in my opinion it will become true in next 10 years, smart phone already can do over 95% thing that computer can do, so I can image in the future programmer using Google Glass to programming and teacher use Google Glass to teaching and studens have class in Google Glass.
