Yesterday Robert Scoble posted on his Facebook feed that he desired some more people review this book prior to its official release date. They even find content worth watching on television. Either way, we want to know what is being done with our data. The E-mail message field is required. The authors are unabashed tech enthusiasts, but as they write, an elephant sits in the living room of our book and it is called privacy. As our devices become smarter and more efficient the amount of data we give away will be astronomical.
The time to lament the loss of privacy is over. The avalanche of data, and new means of assimilating and processing it, enable interactions to be tailored and personalized in ways that have never before been possible. Combined with social media they form a new generation of personalized technology that knows us better than our closest friends. The authors write as though that's their area of expertise, but don't explain how they know what will be adopted and what won't. I fit this profile given that I am in the profession as part of my career and if you ask my wife I am always game on buying the next trendy thing. Specifically they discuss gaffes driven by algorithms that range from annoying to super creepy stalker-like updates.
You know these other forces already: mobile, data, sensors and location-based technology. Proteus Digital Health, one We live in truly amazing times. I am curious to know what people think about this future, particularly those who are not technology fans. What about Alfred versus J. Social media does not account for that. I wonder does it take a techno-utopian view of the world? Astoundingly, in the coming age you may only receive ads you want to see.
Either refrain from using personal commentary or use first-person in those passages. The Age of Context by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel Patrick Brewster, Sep 2013 The Age of Context is a tour-de-force documentary of the state of technology in 2013 looking across a broad number of fields: healthcare, transportation, the electronic home, urbanization, mobile devices, marketing, and understanding customers. Outras coisas, como self-driving cars, intelligent glass, Personal Computer Assistants, Publicidade Personalizada e contextualizada, entre outras coisas são descritas nesse livro. As a political geek, I think government's role will have much to do with the expediency that much of what was discussed will occur. I understand the idea of privacy no longer exists.
I found the overt product placement of the books sponsors lessened my trust in the authors opinions. This book in effect does a good job at distilling and summarizing a lot of the stuff he has been talking about, and the book certainly does a good job at describing the key concepts of the contextual world. I would have liked less of a fast-paced romp through many possibilities and more delving into the details. One example in the book is of a writer having mentioned a plane crash, and then getting an ad for plane travel. I had just finished Age of Context last week and had my first experience with crossing the freaky line of personal contextual assistants a day or so later.
. If you don't click on the occasional tech themed link as it flies by on twitter, and if you read this in the first month of its release, you may well find a wealth of value. Nothing will slow the reader down at all. Six years later they have teamed up again to report that social media is but one of five converging forces that promise to change virtually every aspect of our lives. You know these other forces already: mobile, data, senso In 2006, co-authors Robert Scoble and Shel Israel wrote Naked Conversations, a book that persuaded businesses to embrace what we now call social media. There is a lot I like about it, but one thing I really enjoy is speculating about how technology will change our society, revolutionize our culture and alter our daily lives.
Astoundingly, in the coming age you may only receive ads you want to see. If there's one knock I have about the book is its generally optimist view that the creepy issues of privacy will become resolved. I absolutely respect the authors who are veterans in their fields, and obviously know the who's who in the industry. Feels like the authors got money from the companies they mentioned. Combined with social media they form a new generation of personalized technology that knows us better than our closest friends.
Why we want sensors and smart appliances to do things for us is beyond me. Pinpoint marketing is about right-time experiences, as described by mobile industry analyst of. I'm not talking about privacy, I'm talking about choice. It's important, and will show you better than any other new media book about what technologies are coming next in our business. This book is the culmination of all the research he has done through countless interviews with entrepreneurs building new technologies. That argument is for another day.
Age of Context offers a well grounded view of how companies are using these technologies together to launch us into a new media area. The Age of Context is a tour-de-force documentary of the state of technology in 2013 looking across a broad number of fields: healthcare, transportation, the electronic home, urbanization, mobile devices, marketing, and understanding customers. Well, Scoble's and Israel's five forces are like SoLoMo with data and sensors added. They also promise to cure cancer and make it harder for terrorists to do their damage. Companies are still scared of operating in a remotely social world.
