Has Google Search Jumped The Shark
So, when you get invited to be interviewed on a national radio program, that’s a good thing. I was more than happy to talk about Curation, but little did I know that I was going to be the counter-point to an interview with Google’s Matt Cutts about search and the shift from algorithmic results to human curated content.

But, something is changing around web content. The volume of bits of data is growing wildly, and social search seems to be on the rise. So, what’s happening?

Link Curation – Man Vs Machine

The words curator and curation have been showing up a lot lately, whether it’s with regards to cataloging the Web, mining social media, seeking links, or identifying trustworthy product reviews. This is when my Web years start to show. I’m thrilled to see the current group of “in-the-know” web marketers talk the curation talk. And I’ll spare you the deep link lore where I described a concept long before it was hip to do so. Well, no I won’t. Here it is, nine years ago. And those of you who have had one of my linking strategy sessions have heard me use those word far too often.

truelike, made a nice comment on the post.
The only way I can see Google (or any search engine) continuing to evolve in a positive direction is to increasingly integrate social clues, as we’ve already seen them start to do. They’re showing social data in Google News now, and integrating tweets into their results, and now they’re looking at user reviews to determine rankings for merchants, so over time we’ll certainly see more and more of this as they make their algorithm smarter by integrating the wisdom of the crowds. Bing is now using Facebook data, and that tie will surely get deeper.

The trick, of course, will be choosing social cues that are relatively hard for unscrupulous webmasters and SEOs to game…

The History Of Man Versus Machine Clashes

As IBM’s Watson computer digs in for its competition on “Jeopardy!” this week, we are reminded that this is the first in a long series of classic man vs. machine moments. Here we have a look at some of the famous real and not so real man vs machine action.

The “Jeopardy!” king?
If the preliminary test rounds are any indication, the IBM natural language supercomputer known as Watson will give former “Jeopardy!” human champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter a serious run for their money this week.

Watson, named after IBM founder Thomas J. Watson, is programmed to rival the human ability to answer questions posed in natural language with speed and accuracy. Watson’s software runs on IBM POWER7 servers optimised to handle the massive number of tasks it must perform at rapid speeds to analyse complex language, and deliver correct responses to “Jeopardy!” clues.

 Aggregation Is Not Curation – There Is A Big Difference – SVW http://t.co/qCgYIOh

Andy Carvin is a senior strategist at NPR working on digital media. He’s known for putting together comprehensive and innovative packages around breaking news stories, and for the past three weeks, his Twitter stream has been a non-stop curation of the Egypt protests. Carvin has turned himself into “a personal news wire for Egypt.”

We talked with him about how he gained 4,000 followers, why he hasn’t mapped his sources, and if curation is the new journalism.
