Every presentation about the web and technology nowadays has to include a cloud image!!
Start anywhere, go anywhere
Just so you can visualize the potential application of this: In this Pubmed search, each Cochrane box has pointers to the Cochrane review(s) that included that trial.
Obviously, this is a Photoshopped image. We‘d need to work out a deal with PubMed! But, it represents the basic idea of thinking of our content in “nimble“ terms.
How can we achieve thìs? Linked Data sets like Linkedlifedata.com contain multiple datasets all linked together via...
For example, one dataset in linkedlifedata is DrugBank. Drugbank contains all the variant names, worldwide, for a given drug. But...
Thiscrazy image is the Linked Data cloud which shows all the various datasets currently in the web of data. The pink area is the life sciences area and includes PubMed, DrugBank and others.
User insights can be gleaned from analytics and built into the data. This is the wheel of hunger or what people searched for on the BBC food site throughout the year. The insight they gained here was the notion of the dish….
Tell story from notes on dish slide from Silver and make connection to scientific articles - what’s the dish equivalent of an article? In Sys Reviews, it’s the PICO and reviews have study references from studies evaluated against this framework.Page furniture is defined by the model – in the past, the author of this page would have to build all of this – the content AND related content, links and the “page furniture”. What we want them to do is to create the recipe and describe it very well and then have ilnked data techs using better metadata to build out the rlelated page furniture but you need concept of “the dish”…
Collaborativecode or software projects are becoming interfaces to knowledge.
Then, once we start throwing in other datasets, the triple store becomes even more powerful (note: not sure I drew all lines between all datasets, but you get the idea)…

Cochrane Reviews Have always been electronic Summary of a research project, not really article PICO framework Search, assess and analysis Many of the key components buried in thedocument: Forest plots, Risk of Biasassessments, etc. Continuously updated when new studies arereported
The “age of pointing at things“- h/t Tom Coates, 2005: ttp://www.plasticbag.org/archives/2005/04/the_age_of_pointatthings/ The realization [behind creation of the [Internet] was, "Itisnt the cables, it is the computers which areinteresting". [World Wide Web] the realization was "It isnt thecomputers, but the documents which are interesting".Now you could browse around a sea of documentswithout having to worry about which computer they werestored on. Now, people are making another mental move. There isrealization now, "Its not the documents, it is the thingsthey are about which are important”.-Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web
“The problem is not informationoverload. It„s filter failure.“- Clay Shirky
Machines aren„t good at readingweb pages and documents Data on the web is meant for humanconsumption Machines need the data to be structured Then, information can be more easily sharedwithin and across datasets and web pages Interfaces and APIs can be built to allow better(and programmatic) access The article could evolve into an interface ontoa “web of data“

QuestionDo articles still fulfill their purpose?
Future of article is not about thearticle at all.It„s about:CONTENT & DELIVERY***NIMBLE***
Think: record companyexecutives once upon atime debating the “futureof the album“...
“Operating system” for science? “Scientific bundles of knowledge must bestructured and accessible by API, with theconnections among those bundles andappropriate utility metrics being what connectsand prioritizes scientists.”- Marcio von MuhlenSource: http://tagteam.harvard.edu/hub_feeds/928/feed_items/41072

Future of the article? Should really be: Future of content and delivery Interface to web of data Filter API Code Dynamic or “living“ question or series of questions Editors become curators (?) Things we have yet to think of or can„t imagineyet...
