  • Thoughts on Media Reforestation and Algorithmic Journalism
  • May 1, 2010 – Steve Rubel is always an inspiring read – here you can download a brief PDF on the trends and future of media. He states “in less than 5 years all tangible media … will be sharp decline or extinct … ” an interesting assumption but not one I’d bank on – not in such a short timeframe.

    I think books tend to become part of us – a snapshot of our intellect, where we were at one stage of our life, a bit like photos … we like photos, we like to have a memory of ourselves, something to keep as physical proof that we are alive, we have done things and even accomplished something, not just a brief moment in the lifestreaming of the universe

  1. I have to agree with you Sante. As much as I would like to think our society is advanced beyond our 20 year tenure in sophisticated technology where are the roots?
    Maybe I was born in the wrong century, but I can assure you I will always curl up with a good book on my porch. Nothing will take that away. Some would consider me old fashioned, but growing up in the 70’s computers were foreign to me…I made an effort to dive in, plus the fact if I wanted to eat I had to keep up. Granted not all of us are doing that.

    What is interesting and fascinating to me is how search behavior has changed. How the new generation is communicating with each other. Not considering the consequences of their “texting, blogging,searching, etc.” or the affects it has on our society as a whole. I read somewhere, “When we look at the future of search, we must also look at the history of search.” That in my humble opinion is far more indicative of our future and the effects social media has on this topic.
