Web 3.0 Has Already Begun

Web 3.0 Has Already Begun | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Web 3.0 has begun and its not what you think. I don’t think many people realized what Web 2.0 was until we were at the height of it, and already seeing the capabilities that had been set out years before it.

 

But imagine if we had all realized in 2001 what was possible and all of the major social and technical shifts that would rise the an explosion of innovation and opportunity by 2006.

TechCrunch | Eric Schmidt: Google Is Buying One Company A Week

TechCrunch | Eric Schmidt: Google Is Buying One Company A Week | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it
Google Chairman Eric Schmidt just took the stage at the Le Web conference to chat about Android, the search giant's expansion and more. ****** At first Ithought, "It's good to be the King!" then I thought what this really means - Change is heating up. Google's buying spree is about trying to cube the future. Ahead is so quickly behind now it is a good use of money to buy up as much as possible as fast as possible. Marty

Mobile Moms Want Utility from Marketers - eMarketer

Mobile Moms Want Utility from Marketers - eMarketer | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Sure Moms are online and they're busy - and if Moms are your target audince then yes - get going with mobile - but for me the takeaway is the jump - from 22% to 62% in 2 years!!  Is 2012 really, actually, finally - going to be the year of mobile? (probably 2013 if we're all still here!)

 

Millions of moms are always-on, appreciate value from marketers.

The service, which offers a free basic level, it is indeed very easy to use and makes it a breeze to upload btaches of images from your hard disk or directly from your Facebook account.

Google Curates Scrapes, Filters and Publishes

Google Curates Scrapes, Filters and Publishes | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

From the official site (edited): "Needlebase, is a platform for acquiring, integrating, cleansing, analyzing and publishing data on the web.


"...a needle is used to stitch things together—and stitching together multiple data sources with different formats, schemas, and vocabularies into a unified tapestry of data is just what our Needlebase does best."


Using Needlebase through a web browser, without programmers or DBAs, your data team can easily:


a) Acquire data from multiple sources: A simple tagging process quickly imports structured data from complex websites, XML feeds, and spreadsheets into a unified database of your design.


b) Merge, deduplicate and cleanse: Needlebase uses intelligent semantics to help you find and merge variant forms of the same record. Your merges, edits and deletions persist even after the original data is refreshed from its source.


c) Build and publish custom data views: Use Needlebase's visual UI and powerful query language to configure exactly your desired view of the data, whether as a list, table, grid, or map. Then, with one click, publish the data for others to see, or export a feed of the clean data to your own local database.


N.B.: The company behind Needlebase was acquired in April of 2011 by Google (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/ita-software-acquisition-cleared-for.html)

How Web 3.0 Changes Hiring Forever

How Web 3.0 Changes Hiring Forever | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Web 2.0 gave us social media, expanding the information superhighway into a two-way street. We can make our own content, share it with friends, and make a site without being able to spell HTML.

 

It’s arguably the most revolutionary development in the history of mankind; I don’t say that lightly. But we aren’t entrepreneurs because we’re happy with the status quo.

 

Oh, no - we must endlessly debate what’s next with Dewey Decimal - like complexity.

 

So what is Web 3.0, and who the heck decides these things? The mobile web? Cloud computing? A revolutionary platform for sharing Lolcats?

 

No, no one, no, and despite our many wishes to the contrary, no. It’s you.

Aware, Exploit and Sustain Innovation

Aware, Exploit and Sustain Innovation | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it
I have a secret confession to make, I collect innovation frameworks, there I’ve admitted to it, and feel just that little bit better that one of my innovation secrets is out.

This collection has built up over eight or so years and I have certainly seen some really excellent ones but also some seem pretty thin, those “oh dear” moments! I suppose I collect these a little like collecting pictures; some rare, some new, some promising but you can recognize and appreciate each for expressing that often difficult task of encapsulating innovation in any organizing framework. Sometimes it simply boils down to each to their own, as long as it does the job, then fine.
