Fermilab Will Double-Check CERN's Revolutionary Faster-Than-Light Claim

Fermilab Will Double-Check CERN's Revolutionary Faster-Than-Light Claim | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

So far, the only thing moving faster than light is speculation. But in the wake of last week's baffling neutrino news out of CERN, physicists are crunching numbers to test whether these ghostly particles really can move faster than photons. Physicists at Fermilab are re-examining some old data to help answer the question.

 

In case you live under a rock and missed it, physicists last week said they had evidence neutrinos were moving between Geneva and Gran Sasso, Italy, faster than the speed of light. About three years of data and 15,000 calculations suggested the neutrinos were arriving in Italy earlier than the time it would take light to travel the same distance.

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

Karyn Campbell wrote this piece for Sparksheet - Great Observations and so true!

 

Intro:

 

"Before news aggregators, content curators, and Google’s omnipotent algorithm, the world’s information was sorted by real human beings."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

It comes down to trust

 

The web has offered us incredible options for how we buy products, talk to our friends, or experience media. Remember that adage “quality over quantity”? We can take that phrase literally online – quantity won’t go away; quality will just sit atop.

 

Sometimes we want someone to tell us, consistently, what’s true and what’s good. No wonder YouTube just relaunched its music page, enlisting writers for Vice, Spin and other major vloggers to curate its featured content.

 

**As Steve Jobs more radically put it, “It’s not the consumers’ job to know what they want.”

 

It comes down to trust. Because we are all so well trained in the art of branding, arguably at the expense of crafting things worthy of distribution,

 

**it becomes hard to trust the advice of a Wild West web.

 

Still, we’ll continue to take the word of our favourite industry insider, celebrity or uncle.

 

**Likewise, the smartest companies in this space will calibrate expertise with automation, math with emotion.

 

**Whether she’s a kid writing code or a poet in-the-making, look for the next generation Steve Jobs to carry on building, hiring, and perfecting these filters.

 

Absolutely!
