Tom Gruber on Collective Intelligence…

March 17, 2007 at 1:23 pm 1 comment

Not new, but new to me, so maybe new to you too. 

First off, I like this site in terms of lecture/educational content:

More specifically, I’d point you at the Interview on the Semantic web of Tom Gruber (of Realtravel), but it looks like many worthwhile listens on this site.  

His message to the community:  “Be relevant” – A nice, simple bumper sticker for Web 2.0.

Note: Most useless interviewer question:  “Will the semantic web still be the same thing in 100 years?” – in the pace of change in this industry?  Waste of a question…let’s think out 5/10/20 years…but 100??

There’s also a Tom keynote:  Where the Social Web meets the Semantic Web

This is a great listen in terms of fundamental principles on the social web and the power of collective intelligence.  He identifies 5 roles for technologies in the semantic web:

    • Capturing everything
    • Storing everything
    • Distributing everything
    • Enabling many-to-many communications
    • Creating value from the data

It’s this 5th dimension, creating value, where the real work remains, but the above would provide a nice frame for developing a plan for moving your current approach from Web 1.0 to 2.0 and beyond.

Hope you find this valuable if you didn’t discover already.

    Be relevant… nice. I came across this today, which I think is pretty cool… philanthropy and online community in action…
    In the upper right hand side of his space is a link to and in his blog he talks about making a difference. I thought this was pretty cool.
