The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it
There is a evil side of Google which revealed itself in the Filter Bubble, invasion of privacy, the lack of transparency, in the monopoly induction of behavior and especially in what is happening in the search environment.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 2:58 AM

People who use Google are given the impression that they are interacting with the data out there, but they are actually interacting with Google and its view of the world.

 

"They are prediction engines that constantly refine a theory about who you are and what you are going to do or want next. Together, they create an universe of data for each one of us."

"In a 2010 paper published in the Scientific American journal, Tim Berners-Lee warned about companies developing ever more “closed” products and “data islands”.

"Morville, in his book Search Patterns, says that the first and second results receive 80% of attention. The vertical approach suggests to the user the idea of a single result that fully answers the question, enclosing possibilities and preventing alternative realization."


Or in other words, is our acceptance of what we see in search results eroding our ability (or willingness) to consider alternatives and employ critical thinking?

This is alarming.  We, as Teacher Librarians, need to be aware of the ramifications of this.

Mrs. Dilling's curator insight, February 13, 8:52 AM

My favorite statement, "we must always be aware and well informed about the intentions of companies, and never stop having multiple options for any service."

 

This article was an eye opener for me. I had never questioned Google before.

Librarians have been doing this for years, but now have many tools to pick from!

Angel Somers's curator insight, February 2, 10:31 AM

LIbrarians are natural curators! It's what we do, so it makes sense that we should take the initiative to promot curation as a valuable skill for both our colleagues and our students.

Angela Dunn has written a great piece on one of my favorite topics, curation - it was the lead post on our launh of Curatti last night.


What makes a good curator?


"You need to have the eye of an editor, a sense of taste like a chef, and your own unique Point of View. It is this Point of View – your taste – that can lead to authority and influence".


Jan Gordon:

 

Curators who are driven by passion and purpose will be very important to the business community in their chosen niche - it's crucial that we preserve this information for the future. That is why the future of curation is definitely evergreen.


Here are some highlights that caught my attention:


The amount of content is growing exponentially, but our time is limited. Curators are our filters for information overload – the editors of chaos.


The slew of content curation tools that emerged gave way to algorithms. Can a machine have a Point of View? Machines can influence your Point of View. The danger is they can also create a filter bubble.


It is human insight coupled with machine results that can define the very best information edited from a trusted curator’s Point of View.


Evergreen posts, such as “Curating Content for Thought Leadership”,, written by Angela in 2010 are important in that they stand the test of time.  All good blogs need some such articles.


The above, along with all of Angela's posts on the now defunct Postereus, have evergreen links due to a new tool for archiving the web  – Permamarks.


Selected by Jan Gordon for Curatti covering Curation, Social Business and Beyond

Marco Bertolini's curator insight, June 22, 2013 1:10 AM

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles.  Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :

 

1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.

 

2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.

 

3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

 

Un article inspirant de http://www.linkedin.com/in/emorling que vous pouvez lire ici : http://tribaling.com/blog/2013/05/15/curators-and-tribal-currency/

 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 22, 2013 2:05 PM

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.

 

Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile. 

 

Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.

What Is Curation and Why It's So Relevant? [Video]

Robin Good: A great video animation introducing some of the key ideas, dreams and concepts behind content curation.

 

From the video: "One of the most beautiful things about the Internet is this sort of radical discovery, where you start in a place that you are familiar with, that you trust, and then you drill down and down and chase the white rabbit and then you end up in some wonderland you didn't know existed." 

 

The clip includes thoughts from some unique curators, picked and selected by Percolate, the company sponsoring this video. 

 

Inspiring. Insightful. 8/10
