Tomorrow Was Yesterday: Mastering the Future of Content [NozUrbina]

Published on

This presentation will examine how people, in enterprise and generally, look at the relationship between culture, technology and time.

We can often struggle to think more than a few years ahead, and in turbulent economic and political times, it’s tempting to focus on how we’ll get through the next year, rather than the next decade. However, we’re in an industry that saw the iPad turn content on its head only 30 months before LavaCon 2012. We’ve been definitively shown: a few years can change everything.

What is science fiction now is in many cases only a few years away, but yesterday’s science fiction is today’s domestic device. So has anything really changed?

Well, yes, it has. Fundamentally. Modern communicators need to adopt a new way of thinking about content to thrive and survive if they're creating marketing, commercial or technical content.

  • Access to some fascinating cutting edge crapMicrochips and linear particle accelerators and products that use gamma radiationTelepresence systems and the European Space Agency’s collaboration room with NASA and JSA
  • Internet of Things32-bit Arm Cortex-M0+ processors use around one third of the energy of any 8- or 16-bit processor available today, while delivering significantly higher performance
  • In 1923 to 25 Arthur Compton conducted some experiments where they bounced particles of light off electrons and tracked their resulting movement. In 1923!! In 1911 Geiger and Marsden were bouncing radiation and noticed about 1 in 8000 particles bounced back.1911!Before Einstein? Before plastics, computers, calculators! How long after electric lights?Genius, innovation and design like this is happening today, but we are too busy arguing about money, religion and where are acceptable places to put our genitals to notice.The golden age of science was for me the 20 years from the early 40s to late 60s. That isn't when the science was really happening or being conceived, that was earlier. It was when the science was being applied. It is the golden years when atomic energy, plastics, cooking our food with microwave radiation, domestic electronic and appliances and the moon landing had made applied science a mass market fascination. The horizon seemed totally limitless.The average home changed in so many ways and the governments were racing on such unknown frontiers that we has a true sense of wonder. James Bond fought villains with Space Stations. We were scared of satellite death rays and nuclear war was a house hold and global concern. We were racing to the moon! It was then that all the prediction of personal jet packs, flying cars, domestic robot servants, bionic soldiers and moon hotels started.(Hilton example, Jetsons. Penicillin?). People were naming dates! The bulk of our science fiction today is making movies out of comic books written decades ago. Everything was supposed to keep changing at this staggering pace and the dates for many of these miracles  were often around the turn of the millennia.Then it came and we had this collective sigh of disappointment. No house robots, no rolling cars, our soldiers keep getting killed, cancer is kicking our assess and I bet you no one in this room has made a trip anywhere near the moon! 
  • Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable. – George S. Patton
  • Colossus was the world's first electronic, digital, computer that was at all programmable. Colossus and its successors were used by British codebreakers to help read encryptedGerman messages during World War II. They used thermionic valves (vacuum tubes) to perform the calculations.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossus_computer

  • For instance, the navigation instructions for a GUI are narrated data. The location of every menu item, wizard, tab, dialog, and button is data. Yet writers routinely trace and record the path through the interface by hand over and over again. This is both expensive and error prone, both because the user may make an error, and because the map may change during development without the writer being informed. Suppose instead that the map of the GUI was maintained as data and that writers simply identified the GUI element to be acted on and allowed the system to generate the navigation instructions.http://thecontentwrangler.com/2012/10/06/its-time-to-start-separating-content-from-behavior/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheContentWrangler+%28The+Content+Wrangler%29
  • My opinion: Apple’s strong point is not technology, it’s their ability to make technology work with culture.
  • http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/robotics.aspxhe Robotic Industries Association (RIA) reports that an estimated 178,000 industrial robots are in use in the United States as of 2008, up from 82,000 in 1998. In 2007, North American manufacturers purchased nearly 16,000 robots valued at over $1 billion, a 24 percent increase from the previous year.http://www.ifr.org/uploads/media/WR_Service_Robots_2012_Executive_Summary_01.pdfThemost important applications are robot assisted surgery and therapy with 994 units soldin 2011, 14% more than in 2010. The total value of sales of medical robots slightlydecreased to US$ 1,347 million, accounting for 38% of the total sales value of theprofessional service robots. In 2011, about 2.5 million service robots for personal and domestic use weresold, 15% more than in 2010. The value of sales increased by 19% to US$636million.Projections for the period 2012-2015:About 15.6 million units of service robots for personal use to be soldIt is projected that sales of all types of robots for domestic tasks (vacuum cleaning,lawn-mowing, window cleaning and other types) could reach almost 11 million units inthe period 2012-2015, with an estimated value of US$ 4.8 billion.Sales of all types of entertainment and leisure robots are projected at about 4.7 millionunits, with a value of about US$ 1.1 billion (see respective table and figures).Sales of robots for elderly and handicap assistance will be about 4,600 units in theperiod of 2012-2015. This market will increase substantially within the next 20 years.
  • Californialaw requires the DMV to draft regulations for autonomous vehicles by January 1, 2015, and while the vehicles can operate autonomously, a licensed driver is required to be behind the wheel if something goes awry.California is now the third state to enact autonomous vehicle legislation, following another Google-championed bill that passed in Nevada last February, as well as a Florida law that was approved earlier this year.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trucking_industry_in_the_United_States#1990s-presentPark 4u car mod/app comboTalk about Google driverless cars and find out how many taxi drivers this could replace and how all cars are rolling lans and can be chipped and hacked like an XBOX.

The incredible demo for the Leap Motion (see below) shows how the desktop device can quickly detect hand motion so that a user needs merely wiggle their fingers in front of their computer to intuitively control what happens on the screen. Currently taking pre-orders, the Leap Motion is scheduled to ship between December and Februaryhttp://singularityhub.com/2012/06/13/founders-of-leap-motion-our-amazing-3d-tracking-will-be-everywhere/

This was in all probability linked to the fact that physics was simultaneously destroying our three-dimensional space-time perception.As a scientist myself, I’m skeptical of any substantive relevance, but that’s not the point. Ideas of revolution were in the air, and took on cultural significance independent of their original meaning.David Hockney, as reported by Lawrence Weschler in True to Life (where I also found the Daix quote in a note), considers that cubism is not so much about the structure of the object, but about the process of perception.If there are three noses, this is not because the face has three noses, or the nose has three aspects, but rather because it has been seen three times, and that is what seeing is like

  • Alvin Toffler is an American writer and futurist, known for his works discussing the digital revolution, communication revolution, corporate revolution and technological singularity. 
  • X-Ray for Movies I looked for an HD movie with X-Ray to try, and saw "Rabbit Hole," a frothy (just kidding) film that's beautifully acted and which had a big effect on me though I'd just selected one to 'test.'  When I first saw X-Ray for Movies demo'd, I thought I had misunderstood that Amazon could use its IMDB database to pull info on a character in a current scene and then decided they must have just pulled general casting info to show, if you tapped the display, pausing the movie, since how would it know who was in that scene.  As one who stops cable movies to see who's acting and the year the film was made, this is a feature I think is terrific, because it turns out that if you tap the screen to stop the movie, you get pics and bios of just the people in the last scene or two (if one fades into the other quickly).   Scene-specific info  While watching, I saw a scene shift to two guys, and I wondered who one of the two actors was because I'd seen him in something else but couldn't remember what.  Sure enough, the pics that came up were of just those two actors, with the choice to see their bios if you clicked on the pic.  You get back to the movie by tapping the screen again. So, apparently Amazon bought IMDB some time ago, with this in mind all along, since they've left it alone to function as it always did.  With X-Ray for Books -- when you're on a page and tap Menu/X-Ray, you'll get a list of characters that show up on that page and then the ability to read a short character bio and look at each appearance of the character in the book, via links to each appearance.   No need to wonder "Who's THAT?" and having to flip through until you find earlier appearances.  But work goes into the X-Ray function then. Data is put together to keep you informed, and to give context or just additional information. Every scene in a movie is given that treatment -- someone goes through and ties data to each scene.  What is evident with features like this is that Amazon looks for a way to add value to the normal mode.  Jeff Bezos talked about other companies that just sell gadgets whereas Amazon is selling services -- and one of those services is actually providing added content for information-focused readers or viewers.  I've found this a very creative approach.  Instead of just getting independent developers to do apps for the user, they have staff or teams that work together to share data from one area of the company with another one, to make sure that an added-value feature works well -- information they feel would probably be of interest to the consumer.   With the Amazon software, most news site or gadget reviewers concentrate on generic hardware speed tests or whether there is any waiting time, getting out of sorts when there may be a second or two more wait, but Amazon's software tends to be putting more into place than is normally seen.  This is reading or viewing that is more interactive and with more interoperativity than is seen with other e-readers.  Add syncing everything to work with a myriad of non-Amazon devices, keeping track of place, for each, and a lot is going on.Hope this helps, as there are so many features to sort out.  Let me know if there are other features you'd like to know more about or any that you find yourself using more than expected.
