Just Seven Things

Exploring why and how we do what we do, and how we can do it better

Google and Knowledge Management

Digging through some old articles (old! – last October 2007. Getting too hooked to webtime)

Eric Schmidt in October at Google’s annual analyst meeting gave an interesting view on a potential future of knowledge management. He said that social networks as a phenomenon were very real. Although it was ‘too early to say’ whether this would influence the underlying ‘information structure’ of the internet as users start to organise and access more information through the power of their social connections.

So a future where a further parameter to the Google search algorithms is based on your accumulated profile information as held by Google. Matched through your social network connections to the information snipped/ tagged or recommended by your ‘friends’?
