The Web Is Dying; Apps Are Killing It

The Web Is Dying; Apps Are Killing It | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Web—that thin veneer of human-readable design on top of the machine babble that constitutes the Internet—is dying. And the way it’s dying has farther-reaching implications than almost anything else in technology today.

How the web lost its way – and its founding principles - HITC

How the web lost its way – and its founding principles - HITC | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It showed which houses were connected to the town's water supply and which houses were occupied by black or white families. A mashup uses data from more than one source, usually publicly available information, and almost always presents it on a map. The results were extraordinary: the map showed that almost all the white households in Coal Run had water piped to their homes, while all but a few black households did not. Those without piped water had to carry water home from the water plant by whatever transport they could muster, pump it from wells contaminated with sulphur and oil from old mining operations or, in extremis, collect rainwater.

Wikinomics – Brain food: …internet use? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

As humans begin to age, their brains start to shrink and experience reductions in cell activity. For a long time, activities such as cross-word puzzles, and (in Chinese culture) mah jong, were considered practices that can help keep the brain active and counter-act the age related slow downs of the brain. Now, according to a study in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, surfing the Web can also be added to such activities.

Venessa Miemis Video - Idea Exchanges - YouTube

I think the Web is evolving into a massive idea exchange. People around the world are more eager than ever to share their knowledge and expertise in order to help each other and to solve problems. Now, with the real-time Web, people are able to assemble themselves around an idea, to talk about it, to exchange information about it, to refine it, and to develop a plan of action around it. This is being doing in real time and at a scale that has just never been possible before. I don't think we've even scratched the surface, yet, of understanding how to leverage the power of these social dynamics, but I think a key to unlocking the potential is going to be through developing better tools to visualize our human capital, which would be a combination of our strengths, our skills, and our social connections.

Last week, Facebook began testing new features you may spot within the Facebook iPhone app. They’re called context cards (unofficially), and whenever you check in to a place a la Foursquare, or mention that you’re reading a certain book, these white cards being tested with some users might pop up in your News Feed to tell you what your friends think about your taste in restaurant or the way that book ended.

The Web Is Dead. Long Live the Internet | Magazine | WIRED

Two decades after its birth, the World Wide Web is in decline, as simpler, sleeker services — think apps — are less about the searching and more about the getting.

And Michael Wolff explains why the new breed of media titan is forsaking the Web for more promising (and profitable) pastures.
