If There Was Already an Ocean of Data in 2007, How Much is there Now?

Andy McAfee

So I decided to (poorly) imitate his methodology and try to seriously answer the question posed in the title of this post – if there was already an ocean of data in the world in 2007, how much more ‘datawater’ was there in 2013? I chose 2007 for no particularly good reason.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: The Power of Power Laws

John Hagel

By implication, a Paretian world requires a much more dynamic view of the world, one that looks for patterns in evolving relationships, rooted deeply in context, and that understands how these changing patterns reshape who we are as well as our opportunities for growth.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Institutional Innovation

John Hagel

Yet, even here, process life cycles are also compressing in the face of rapidly changing business environments. One of the key pitfalls, though, is the temptation to map out detailed blueprints of new institutional arrangements before deploying any changes.

It is the structure of social networks that shapes influence… and the structure is changing

Ross Dawson

As I commented in a 2007 post about other research on online influence, What interests me in particular is how the structure of these influence networks will evolve – we are absolutely in a transition phase, and the way social opinion is formed will quickly change.

Why the Semantic Web Will Fail

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Because the people saying all the semantic-webbish things - speak the same language, standardize your work, orchestrate the services - are the people who will shut down the pipes, change the standards, and look out for their own interests (at the expense of yours). Don't get too excited by the title. But I do want to share a few thoughts. It was running through my head just now, the work that we were doing here in Moncton to work on an e-learning cluster.

Looking Back at 2007

Tony Karrer

In December 2006, I posted my challenges and predictions for 2007. Biggest challenges for 2007? I could answer this as the biggest challenges for Learning Professionals generally, and maybe I'll come back and do that, but for now, let me just write what I see as some of my bigger challenges in 2007. I found several very high quality developers at several levels in 2007. This continues to be a challenge, but I'm way ahead of where I was starting 2007.

If that's the case, then change the wording to eliminate the need to "describe." Again - I would really welcome: Links to good templates or example RFPs. Suggestions on what else should go in here.

I got tagged by Luis Suarez around a new meme going around that focuses on "Media I Consume". I'm sure you all remember the Five Things Meme that struck the blogosphere a few months ago.

I'm personally not that interested in music, movies, magazines, but I was very interested how people were using the web.
