This article came through my inbox this morning from MediaGuardianTell Me The Future. This is a virtual Who’s Who in social media, and their thoughts on the future of media with the development of search, advertising, video streaming, and social networking. An absolute must-read in my book!

My favorite quote in this article is from Rutherford Rogers, Yale librarian, with regards to search:
“We’re drowning in information and starving for knowledge.”

Excerpt from Peter Norvig, Director of Research at Google:
“In the future, a similar symbiosis of searcher and computational environment will allow us to move faster through the internet than we would have thought possible. We will not just be typing in keywords and getting back a list of 10 web pages.
Instead, our interaction will be more fluid, our computers will accept our requests in many forms, and will scan our environment proactively, looking for ways to provide us with additional power.”

Hmm…sounds very Dave Copps/semantic search/PureDiscovery-esque!
