Personal perspectives on information science, the evolving Internet, delivery of public services online, Web 2.0, the Web of Data, the Semantic Web, communities, folksonomies and more. With an emphasis upon convergence between some or all of the above, and a UK slant.
As discussedelsewhere, I leave my current position - andweblog- in September. Although I'll doubtless be contributing heavily to theblogsof mynew employerwhen I get there, now seemed like a good time to take the plunge and give myself a space of my own in which I can continue to express myself.
Posting will probably be light during August and early September, as I spend an awful lot of time tying up various activities in theCommon Information Environment.
I see this blog covering many of the same topics that I have always discussed; libraries, archives, museums, education, cultural heritage, lifelong learning, government, and the ways in which all of these are challenged by - and hopefully benefit from - new technologies such as the Web,Web 2.0, theSemantic Web,podcasts,blogs,folksonomiesand more.
Throughout, I'll hopefully show that technology is not an end in itself, but a set of tools capable of helping us build something better.
I look forward to the conversation... so be sure to join in.
