An excellent article that indicates what the future may be like - discovered by MT. Thanks for passing it on, MT! It quite answers my so-far unasked and latent question (er...maybe I did think aloud about this on Twitter?) on what things may be like a few years down the line. The article points to what the future of the Internet (and Intranets) is going to be like......how we are likely to discover information and knowledge as we ride the Internet and Web 2.0 wave. Doesn't come out of the blue...we all have heard before about intelligent searches and sophisticated collaboration mechanisms....but nothing like an article that pins it down to a few names and descriptions.
PS: I find the usage of the signal-to-noise metaphor - for describing the state of affairs on the WWW - to be appealing :-)
