If You Can't Search You Can't Curate: Learn Fundamental Search Techniques with Google Power Searching Online Course

If You Can't Search You Can't Curate: Learn Fundamental Search Techniques with Google Power Searching Online Course | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are serious about becoming a great curator, in your specific areas of interest, one of the key skills you may need to hone and refine is searching. 

 

While everyone can type a query in Google, only a very small minority knows how to go beyond that simple and intuitive ask-by-typing approach. 

 

If you need to find alternative sources, additional proofs or more people writing on a specific topic, you need to be able to articulate your search engine queries in more sophisticated ways.

 

Google has opened registrations to its new Power Searching online course, providing anyone with the opportunity to learn highly valuable search skills and to receive a Google certificate after successfully completing it.

 

From the official web site: "Power Searching with Google is a free online, community-based course showcasing search techniques and how to use them to solve real, everyday problems.

 

The course features:


-> Six 50-minute classes.

-> Interactive activities to practice new skills.

-> Opportunities to connect with others using Google Groups, Google+, and Hangouts on Air.

 

Upon passing the post-course assessment, a printable Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you.

 

Registration is open from yesterday (June 26th), to July 16, 2012.

 

New classes will become available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday starting on July 10, 2012 and ending on July 19, 2012. Course-related activities will end on July 23, 2012.

The Rosetta Disk fits in the palm of your hand, yet it contains over 13,000 pages of information on over 1,500 human languages. The pages are microscopically etched and then electroformed in solid nickel, a process that raises the text very slightly - about 100 nanometers - off of the surface of the disk...

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Among the five digital trends presently shaping the consumer experience economy, according to Macala Wright who first wrote about this on Mashable, there is one that has as its key objective the reduction of "information noise", distractions and approaches to digital communication that make it harder to grasp and understand a message or to complete a key task one is after.

 

It reads like there is more to information curation than people scanning feeds and selecting relevant items to write about.

 

From the original article I have extracted a few passages: "Calm technology refers to applications that cut down on the digital noise of high-volume data to show the user only enough information that he or she needs to complete a task.

 

...It refers to technologies that do not disrupt our workflow.

 

The whole idea is to reduce distractions to our work flow without losing functionality.

 

Calm technology fights against many of the principles of digital marketing: instead of screaming for attention with flashing banner ads, technologies and applications politely take a backseat to the user’s primary focus...

 

...

 

Examples of calm technology can be found in the growing popularity of social curation and discovery.

 

Social product discovery sites such as Lyst, Mulu.Me, Buyosphere, Svpply and Discoveredd are essentially social filters that enable their communities to curate the products that are most relevant to them.

 

Moreover, the rise of interest networks and the idea of following someone who has similar likes and shared interest topics are examples of the principles of calm technology driving user behavior.

 

Google Circles, Pinterest and Chime.In, even location apps such as Sonar, Glancee and Highlight, can all be classified under the “term interest network.”

 

Excellent reading. 8/10

TEDGlobal 2012: theory of 'radical openness'

TEDGlobal 2012: theory of 'radical openness' | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Bruno Giussani talks to Carole Cadwalladr about the 'radical openness' that underpins his strategy for a changing world...

 

According to Giussani, who has curated the Edinburgh programme, the concept is an amalgam of not just the new forms of openness made possible by digital technology – "crowdsourcing, opensourcing, collaboration, social etc" – but also about radical thinking.

 

===> "It's people thinking differently at existing problems, and pushing at boundaries in radical new ways." <===
