Some new ways to look at infrastructure

Doc Searls

As aphorisms go, it’s a close relative to the subtitle of McLuhan’s magnum opus, Understanding Media: the Extensions of Man (Berkeley, 1964, 1994, 2003). Nothing challenges our understanding of infrastructure better than a crisis, and we have a big one now in Houston.

Trainfeed spotting

With the 10th anniversary edition of Cluetrain coming out, I thought I’d try to keep up with postings that mention “Cluetrain&# — through four Live Web * search engines: BlogPulse , Google BlogSearch , Technorati and Twitter Search. I’ve got all four feeding into an aggregator. And Twitter Search finds 28 in the last day (I didn’t go back any farther there.)

Bring on The Live Web

I first heard about the “World Live Web&# when my son Allen dropped the phrase casually in conversation, back in 2003. For example, we could search in real time, but search engine indexes were essentially archives, no matter how often they were updated.

Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt said “Every two days we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003.” Blogs, via Google Reader for sifting through RSS feeds or suggestions from friends. I use Google to search my own work.).

Twitter Is Where Conversations Go To Die

Or how you have also automated your blog posts and whatever other feeds into your Twitter stream so that folks would know where to head to read your writing of more than 140 characters.

A blast from the independent past

He gives the time frame for that as roughly 2001-2005, peaking in 2003 or so. For what it’s worth, I found both Jeremy’s and Andy’s posts in a Technorati search. The top response (in reverse chronological order, from the search), posted twenty minutes ago by DeepLinking , says, I gotta know how much Technorati is charging for the blog-clipping service SiliconValleyWatcher is talking about [via Jason Calacanis ].

Sites that use have to feed back the entries for the unknown word. We humans spent 9B hours spending in 2003. Image search works by looking at file names and html text, because computers can’t yet recognize objects in images very well.

What I'm Working On

Mostly, the way people approach it is to treat online resources as analogous to library resources, and hence to depict the problem of locating resources as a search and retrieval problem. Which in a certain sense makes sense - how else are you going to find that one resource out of a billion but by searching for it? This would allow for searches - not just keyword or phrase searches, Google already does that, but structured searched.

As part of this solution, the normal kinds of reporting done by the individual nonprofits feeds into a knowledge base that then can be tapped by people in other nonprofits. Just got through reading - Long Live Instructor-Led Learning - by Saul Carliner, who is a person I know, like and respect. Wow, did he step in it on this one.

Kisangani was once called Stanleyville, named for Henry Morton Stanley , an American explorer famous for his search for David Livingstone. External agents, attracted by the subterranean riches, intervene in all these conflicts, as diamond traffickers or oil companies, directly and indirectly feeding the conflict and poverty. I am watching Live 8 as I write this, rebroadcast on a Sunday morning on AOL, thankful to be able to witness this moment, and alternating between rage and hope.
