Thread: Information R/evolution
March 2nd, 2008 #1
"This video explores the changes in the way we find, store, create, critique, and share information. This video was created as a conversation starter, and works especially well when brainstorming with people about the near future and the skills needed in order to harness, evaluate, and create information effectively."
The reason I posted this, is because I was thinking about the "un-organized part", and how you can just keep on clicking and clicking on links forever and ever...
I stay up just reading, and watching...everything. movies, music, comedy, art, friends, ims, irc chats, books, advice, pictures, science, comedies, sports, comics, internet memes....everything.
And this is why I have a sleeping problem, and it's 4:23 am here and I should be sleeping.:ZZZ:

Its very interesting.
But also in a way very frightening. The ministry of truth kept popping into my mind throughout this video.

One of the parts of the video was particularly interesting to me. I wonder how many people actually use the categories to search for something on websites such as Yahoo. I don't think I've ever just browsed categories to find what I'm looking for. I always use the search function. In fact, I get frustrated when a large website doesn't have a search function. I even keep the find-as-you-type on to search webpages.
So who uses the categories? With such a vast amount of information available, how can anyone hope to find what they're looking for? I do love following links when reading Wikipedia, but I still have a starting point resulting from an automated search.
On a completely unrelated note, I love this smily
The Boulder takes issue with that comment.

It is indeed scary. Now the freedom to record history is given to everyone, and that is a big responsibility.
I think when the people of the future look back they're going to have a much better understanding of our time period. There going to see an age of cold facts melt into opinions, perspectives, thoughts and expression. Every one of us is now a reporter, we each can choose how history remembers us and our environment, not simply by measurements but by feelings. Its an exciting time to be alive.
