Last February Nokia launched a brand new community website called “Ideas Project“, which is an online information vault designed to help people like you to find and understand the relationship and correlations between the industry pioneers and the big ideas.
The site revealed many fascinating insights and disruptive ideas of some of the web’s most visionary and influential big thinkers into the future of network communications, highlighting where technology and communication may be taking us in the near future.
This big initiative from Nokia brought together some of the industry technologists, experts, university professors, venture capitalists and bloggers for an on-going conversation on a variety of topics including cloud computing, global social issues, new application areas such as genetics and social networking etc. A complete list of topics can be found here.
Blogger Robert Scoble (scobleizer.com), who himself started a similar project called Building43 not long ago, said in a video interview that refinement of search-capability, being done by himself and others to monitor trends in the aggregation of real-time social Web data, will make it possible for individuals to obtain a stream of desired information based on personal preferences. Scoble believes this development will have similar game-changing implications for users of social media applications such as Facebook.
New extremely powerful tools are coming out enabling you to build specific, advanced searches that can help you identify patterns of usage and review what people are saying around a specific topic,” said Scoble. “I feel something is just about to happen that will make it possible for you to tell this world, I’m interested in “X” and have a stream of “X” come at you.
