“La vera partita dei prossimi anni sarà uno sviluppo a due facce: il dispiegarsi sempre più appassionante di grandi servizi, con Google che si “oggettiverà” e tenderà a diventare la “nostra realtà”, e insieme l’allungarsi della sua ombra sulla nostra vita.”—Repubblica.it - Blog - Scene Digitali » 2007 » Maggio » 23

“We take unstructured content on web pages, parse it, and generate structured content for our users — that’s a huge value,” he says. “In a way, it turns each word or link on a web page into a usable object.”—Compiler - Wired Blogs
“The illusion of the technology being tailored to the individual may come at the expense of personal privacy as we join this ever-expanding and increasingly invisible network.”—In future, everything will be a computer
“We have focused on managing our time. Our opportunity is to focus on how we manage our attention. We are evolving beyond an always-on lifestyle. As we make choices to turn the technology OFF, to give full attention to others in interactions, to block out interruption-free time, and to use the full range of communication tools more appropriately, we will re-orient our trek toward a path of more engaged attention, more fulfulling relationships, and opportunities for the type of reflection that fuels innovation.”—WikiHome - JotSpot Wiki (continuouspartialattention)
“Vertical search is important because it’s one of the two major things I’ve long talked about as being how search will advance. First generation search analyzed words on a page to rank content. Second generation search tapped into link analysis. Third generation search to me is looking at both user input (what we visit; what we click on; personalized results) and making search go more vertical.”—Google 2.0: Google Universal Search
“Tackling a large-scale problem requires a strategic rather than a tactical approach. The paradigms that shape our individual and collective perceptions of big problems, and of their possible solutions, they tend to evolve much more slowly than the problems themselves, due to the inherent complexities of the big problems. [….]Far too many of the possible improvement steps will change the design environment for other improvement candidates. So we have to depend on an evolutionary process. We can learn to facilitate and accelerate that process.”—Musing about collective intelligence and Agile and complex systems problems | confused of calcutta
“Young people have an advantage that older people don’t have and can’t fake, and it isn’t about vigor or hunger — it’s a mental advantage. The principal asset a young tech entrepreneur has is that they don’t know a lot of things.”—The (Bayesian) Advantage of Youth. Many-to-Many:
“When the world really has changed overnight, when wild new things are possible if you don’t have any sense of how things used to be, then it is the people who got here five minutes ago who understand that new possibility, and they understand it precisely because, to them, it isn’t new.”—The (Bayesian) Advantage of Youth. Many-to-Many:
“The question remains which specific contribution critical Internet scholars and practitioners can make to opening up network thought. Such is the purpose of the network theory conference. How must we rethink network culture with a renewed emphasis on technical media and social software?”—New Network Theory
Commit to providing affordable high-speed wireless Internet access nationwide, along with protecting and expanding unlicensed spectrum for public use, and make the Internet a reliable part of our infrastructure….
Declare a “Net Neutrality” standard forbidding Internet service providers from discriminating among content based on origin, application or type.
Instead of “No Child Left Behind,” our goal should be “Every Child Connected.”
Commit to building a Connected Democracy where it becomes commonplace for local as well as national government proceedings to be heard by anyone any time and over time.
“Informazione […] imporre forma a qualcosa che non ce l’ha.[…] La forma esprime delle relazioni […] Le informazioni sono il trasferimento di una forma da un mezzo all’altro […] sono comunicazione di relazioni”—Hans C. von Baeyer, Informazione. l nuovo linguaggio della scienza, Edizioni Dedalo, 2005
“We are really living in a wireless world. All of your data is travelling over the air in a very fast pace. Unfortunately you are still tied to the wall in order to make things work. How long will customers accept this?”—Sage - .Dust
“I’m sure that huge and innovative steps are daily made in Medical Science for human’s sake, it’s strange for me that part of the intelligence we use for this precious task could not be applied to improve patients experience during the short (hopefully) period they have to spent for passing through pains and enjoy their life again.”—» Innovation (in)sanity in Health Care .Dust: An Innovation Weblog
“I microformati rappresentano un metodo per scrivere piccoli documenti in modo che siano facilmente leggibili sia dagli esseri umani che dai computer. I microformati sono integrati nelle normali pagine web ma seguono determinate strutture ed identificativi grazie alle quali le applicazioni possono rilevarli e gestirli in modo semplice.”—mozilla links - edizione italiana
“But the pages we visit contain all kinds of common information that, dammit, the browser should recognize and let me do stuff with—think of it like being cut/copy/paste for the web. If there are contact details, why can’t I add them to my address book? If there is a place, why can’t the browser recognize this and give me a way of seeing this on Yahoo Maps? If there is an event, why can’t I add it to my Google Calendar?”—Digital Web Magazine - Five Pertinent Questions for John Allsopp
“He (Jakob Nielsen n.d.r.) warned that the rush to make webpages more dynamic often meant users were badly served. He said sites peppered with personalisation tools were in danger of resembling the “glossy but useless” sites at the height of the dotcom boom.”—BBC NEWS | Technology | Web 2.0 ‘distracts good design’
“The fuss began when Fred Vogelstein - a Wired magazine journalist, reporting a story about a powerful blogger - asked two fellow bloggers for phone interviews. But they each set conditions. Jason Calacanis, a blogging entrepreneur, insisted on doing the interview via email so he could publish a full record of it online. Dave Winer, an internet pioneer, said he’d answer questions in public, on his blog, if he had anything to say. Both explained that they do this in part because in the past they have been misquoted.”—BuzzMachine » Guardian column: The state of the interview
“Ciò che stupisce dell’attuale mondo della Rete — secondo Iskold — è il contrasto evidente fra i terabyte di informazioni disponibili agli umani, e gli altrettanti nascosti ai computer: è un paradosso che l’informazione si accatasti in pagine HTML, formattata in modelli esoterici, che sono difficili da processare per le macchine.”—Programmazione.it :: Web 3.0, nuove tecnologie e strategie della Rete
“Google is still very much focused inside the browser, whereas Adobe and Microsoft have made divergent moves to go outside the browser (but both with one foot still planted firmly in the browser).”—Understanding Apollo
