i work for an international organization
they have just completed a two year overhaul while building a dedicated department of talented people to manage all forward facing web work
as i have worked for them these last 4 months, i’ve noticed several things
while they have just finished growing the department from 4 to 22, they are still working out a few growing pains
since i have been there i have seen tremendous growth in the standards of the department and experience joy at the majority of staff that have passion for their jobs
but i notice technology might be speeding up again and i’m not sure they are making all the connections they could be making
search engines are evolving – and no, I don’t mean the math that Google performs i’m taking about the fact that search is changing – it’s going to become about words, snippets and links communities share – not just whose page indexes the best
and it’s not just search – it’s the linking as well
so is this a SEO thing or a SoMe thing
maybe it’s a hybrid of both
we need a taxonomist where ever they fit
what you say is a taxonomist?
it’s a person who makes the logical connection with words using editorial indexing and information hierarchies
someone who can understand retrieval systems and indexes
NASA scientists developed an electrolyte formula that is now available for weekend warriors and athletes here on Earth. The formula is a concentrated liquid that when mixed with water quickly restores hydration and prevents fluid loss.

I love this video of Malcom Gladwell talking about Howard Moskowitz and reinventing Spaghetti Sauce and changing the way we understand the “Sweet Spot”
its here don’t let anyone tell you it’s not
the semantic web is the next evolutionary development of the Internet , the father
it’s about connecting data not files and about deriving meaning from content and then making connections where there have been none before
it’s about sharing your data across networks of sites that share a basic id to you and pull the data you allow to have all your favorite applications together
it’s about taking the subject and type of content of a page you are on and and using data openness and followers recommendations to make your experience smarter
…By contrast, among the spots submitted to Cannes that also demonstrate “sexy time,” as Borat would put it, a commercial for Durex condoms by Atlanta’s Fitzgerald + Co. manages to be open, clever, inclusive and far more expressive and human than the Calvin Klein board — all by using balloon (well, condom) animals. No shame here as the blue and pink ones happily go at it from every angle, complete with squeaky-rubber sound effects. (I never realized balloon animals are indeed naked.) An orange balloon friend stands by shyly, but then is happily welcomed into the repression-free threesome. “Get it on” is the double-entendre tagline-a great way to combine “Just do it” with a health message. It’s poignant and timeless, a thing of beauty. Give it a gold, I say…..
