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 | Socially | Scoop.it

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 2014 10:58 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?

Lucy Beaton's curator insight, January 17, 2014 1:21 AM

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

Mrs. Dilling's curator insight, February 13, 2014 4:52 PM

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."

- *students* can be taught the above as a research methodology for their studies;
- *product designers* can utilise these steps to gain a deeper picture of the problem / industry their serving;
- *teachers* can employ these techniques as a way to collate content related to their subject focus;
- *start-ups* can use these tools to aggregate ideas around the market they are entering;
- *leaders* can illustrate brand stories in which they would like to emulate.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

 

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

 

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

 

Free to use.

Organizing Resources and Maintaining Them Over Time: That's What A Curator Does - The Discipline of Organizing


Via Robin Good
more...
Robin Good's curator insight, November 24, 2013 5:50 PM


The Discipline of Organizing is a book, published by the MIT Press that offers a framework for the theory and practice of organizing anything. 
 

A short, 7-page PDF synthesizing and introducing the book main ideas has just been published as part of the latest Bulletin of the Association for Information Science and Technology (Vol.40- N.1).


The PDF, as well as the book, have been authored by Robert G. Glushko (who teaches in the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley) and, as I mentioned, are devoted to introduce the relevance of the TDO (The Discipline of Organizing) to anyone involved in organizing and maintaining content archives or in curating any type of digital content online. 

 From the PDF:

"A set of resources is transformed by an organizing system when the resources are described or arranged to enable interactions with them.


Explicitly or by default, this transformation requires many interdependent decisions about the identities of resources; their names, descriptions and other properties; the classes, relations, structures and collections in which they participate; and the people or technologies that interact with them.


These decisions and the analysis needed to make them have been systematized in The Discipline of Organizing, recently published by MIT Press in both print and eBook formats." 


The PDF provides a good starting point to start asking the right questions needed to develop an organizing framework and to understand why they are so relevant.


"A very practical implication of teaching organizing using more generic concepts and vocabulary is that it enables students to obtain jobs with firms that might not otherwise hire them.

For example, a student who says she knows about curation can’t as easily sell her skillsto a business looking for someone to develop a business continuity plan as one who recognizes that “organizing resources and maintaining them overtime” is the skill the company wants and the one she has.
"


My comment: Useful for defining an organizing framework for anyone new to doing it. Could be more pragmatic and example-rich.  6/10

Gilbert C FAURE's comment, November 24, 2013 7:01 PM
more than only rescooping, I would like to say that it is the challenge of every scientist, researcher, MD, and particularly university teacher who has to surf on waves of information. Curation, and especially scoop.it helps to keep abreast and more importantly to organize or at least to save and find again what has been collected in the cloud!
