A New Web Paradigm: Pearltrees
Share

Written by : Tom George| 0 | Content Curation

A few days ago I found out about an application that threw me off my chair: Pearltrees.com.

The reason is that I have been discussing a similar concept around me for a few months  – without taking any serious step towards implementing it -. So here I was, contemplating the execution of the idea and going through a range of emotions when I discovered in more details the way they designed the application. Not to mention the irony of their being French.

After using it for a few days, I believe Pearltrees could change the way we browse the web. No less. Hats off.

Let me rephrase: whether Pearltrees in its current format survives the harsh rites that smart start-ups have to pass in order to become viable businesses is still unknown; however the concepts underpinning it have a brilliant future and its founders have certainly put their foot in a big door.

The reason for this Nostradamusean prediction is that that they are bringing to life a paradigm at the core of the development of the internet since its beginning 40 years ago: The science of networks.
