Evolving trends l.jpg
Evolving Trends

  • The Web as a “platform”

  • Data as the driving force and User-controlled data

  • Services, not packaged software

  • Architecture of participation

  • Harnessing collective intelligence

  • The transition of web-sites from isolated information silos to sources of content and functionality

  • open communication, decentralization of authority, freedom to share and re-use, and "the market as a conversation"

  • Viral Marketing

  • Wikis

  • Blokis

  • YouTube

  • MySpace

  • MMOG

  • GIS

  • Semantic Web


Slide8 l.jpg
RSS

  • Really Simple Syndication (RSS 2.0)

  • a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated digital content, such as blogs, news feeds, wikis, blikis, or podcasts.

  • the user 'subscribes' to a feed by supplying to their reader a link to the feed; the reader can then check the user's subscribed feeds to see if any of those feeds have new content


Blogs web log l.jpg
BLOGs (Web Log)

  • Similar to an online diary

  • Challenging traditional media

  • total number of blogs estimated at over 56 million, with over 1.2 million posts written daily.


Trent lott l.jpg
Trent Lott

  • Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott of Mississippi made statements that some interpreted as pro-segregationist.

  • Top media outlets buried Lott's remarks or ignored them altogether.

  • Bloggers criticized Lott's comments so vigorously that public officials and the mainstream media eventually took notice.

  • Lott resigned as majority leader, and last year he told The Christian Science Monitor that he was the "first pelt" of bloggers.


Dan rather l.jpg
Dan Rather

  • At the height of the 2004 presidential campaign, bloggers targeted a CBS News report on Bush's National Guard record and provided evidence that the network based the story on phony military memorandums.

  • Although CBS was reluctant to acknowledge the controversy, Dan Rather ultimately resigned as the evening news anchor.


Mark foley scandal l.jpg
Mark Foley Scandal

  • November 2005 – Rep. Rodney Alexander (R-LA) receives e-mails from page. Parents don’t want to pursue it. The St. Petersburg Times and the Miami Herald, and the Fox News Channel acquired copies of the e-mails.

  • May 2006 -- Ken Silverstein, an editor at Harper's Magazine, received copies of the five e-mails. July 2006, a Republican Congressional staffer sent copies of the e-mails to several Washington media organizations through an intermediary.

  • August 2006 -- ABC News reporter Brian Ross received copies of the e-mails.

  • September 24, 2006 -- e-mails appear on the anonymous blog, Stop Sex Predators.

  • September 27, 2006 -- The blog Wonkette drew readers' attention to the posted e-mails.

  • Sept. 28, 2006 – Ross reported on the e-mails in the Blotter. After that initial story, two former pages brought copies of more explicit instant messages to ABC News and the Washington Post.

  • Sept. 29, 2006 -- Shortly after being questioned by ABC about the more explicit IMs -- and before they had been publicly revealed -- Foley resigned from Congress.

Political campaigns l.jpg
Political Campaigns read blogs.

  • Blogs were used as a political tool during the 2004 campaign. The "netroots" of the Left rallied around Howard Dean and unexpectedly pushed him to early front-runner status in the Democratic presidential race and later helped Dean win the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee.

  • The netroots have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Democrats in some congressional districts

  • In South Dakota, Republican bloggers Jon Lauck and Jason Van Beek were credited with aiding John Thune's victory over Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle. Thune's campaign reportedly paid both bloggers, and Thune later hired Van Beek as a Senate aide.


Viral marketing l.jpg
Viral Marketing read blogs.

  • Viral marketing and viral advertising refer to marketing techniques that use pre-existing social networks to produce increases in brand awareness, through self-replicating viral processes, analogous to the spread of pathological and computer viruses.

  • Counts on people passing on and shareing interesting and entertaining content. These viral commercials often take the form of funny video clips, or interactive Flash games, an advergame, images, and even text.


Wikis l.jpg
Wikis read blogs.

  • a website that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change available content -- typically without the need for registration.

  • an effective tool for mass collaborative endeavors.


Bloki l.jpg
Bloki read blogs.

  • a WikiLog, Wog, WikiWeblog, Wikiblog, or Bloki, is a blog with wiki support. This means that after (or before) an article is posted to the blog, it can be edited, either by anyone or by some group of authorized users.

  • The main advantage is in leveraging the utility of wikis at making connections between ideas -- this effectively turning blog posts into proper wiki articles while maintaining the former's immediate nature.

  • A bliki can evolve as a whole over time, and past information is not merely jettisoned into the aether and lost in the shuffle.


Youtube l.jpg
YouTube read blogs.


Senator george allen l.jpg
Senator George Allen read blogs.

  • Allen twice used the word macaca to refer to S.R. Sidarth, who was filming the event as a "tracker" for the opposing Webb campaign. Sidarth is of Indian ancestry, but was born and raised in Fairfax County, Virginia. Macaca is a slur meaning "monkey."

  • the Allen “macaca” video generated over 400,000 hits, so in an election that Jim Webb won by fewer than 9,000 votes, the video probably did matter. 

    Macaca Video


Senator burns l.jpg
Senator Burns read blogs.

  • Montana Senator Burns was caught on video several times saying that we should be worried about enemies “who drive taxi cabs during the day” and who kill at night.  Burns was also caught nearly falling asleep during an agricultural committee hearing.

    Taxi Cab Drivers

    Naptime



Myspace l.jpg
MySpace read blogs.


Mmog or mmo l.jpg
MMOG or MMO read blogs.

  • A Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG or MMO) is a computer game which is capable of supporting hundreds or thousands of players simultaneously, and is played on the Internet.

  • Second Life (abbreviated SL) is an online virtual world, which came to international attention in late 2006 and early 2007. Subscription-based users interact with other users through avatars providing an advanced social network service. Users who often called "Residents" amongst themselves explore, meet other users, participate in individual and group activities or "events", buy items, virtual property and services from one another, and, if they decide to visit often, they learn new skills and mature socially in climbing a virtual hierarchy.

  • SL's virtual currency otherwise known as Linden Dollars is exchangeable for US$ and has become the subject of much concern in economic circles in regard to possible taxation[5].


Slide45 l.jpg
GIS read blogs.

  • Geographic Information Systems

  • It’s not just about maps anymore.

  • Of course, it never was.


The semantic web l.jpg
The Semantic Web read blogs.

  • The Semantic Web is a project to create a universal medium for information exchange by putting documents with computer-processable meaning (semantics) on the World Wide Web.

  • Data integration across application, organizational boundaries


Slide52 l.jpg

  • Humans are capable of using the Web to carry out tasks. However, a computer cannot accomplish the same tasks without human direction because web pages are designed to be read by people, not machines.

  • The semantic web is a vision of web pages that are understandable by computers, so that they can search websites and perform actions in a standardized way.


The vision l.jpg
The Vision However, a computer cannot accomplish the same tasks without human direction because web pages are designed to be read by people, not machines.

“I have a dream for the Web in which computers become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers. A ‘Semantic Web’, which should make this possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of trade, bureaucracy and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking to machines. The ‘intelligent agents’ people have touted for ages will finally materialize.”

—Tim Berners-Lee, 1999


New technology old patterns l.jpg
New Technology – Old Patterns However, a computer cannot accomplish the same tasks without human direction because web pages are designed to be read by people, not machines.

  • It’s about communication

  • It’s about information

  • It’s about association

  • The technology is evolving

  • Society will evolve with it

  • Changing “Rules of Engagement”
