Joe Tucci at EMC World 2010 quoted a recent IDC / Dataquest study, which points out the coming world wide data explosion
Where a Zettabyte is 1024 Exabytes, an Exabyte is 1024 Petabytes and a Petabyte is 1024 Terabytes. A Zettabyte is therefore approximately 10 ^ 21 bytes. That's a data explosion of 44x in approximately 10 years.
What Joe does not point out is the shift from unstructured data to structured data. Presently, 90% of worldwide data is unstructured. However, almost all of the sources of new data which are causing the explosion are structured. (These include social networking, blogging, Twitter, and all of the Web 2.0 content, plus sources like e-readers, PDAs, smart phones, medical / dental digital imaging, online security, smart energy metering and the like.) The result is this graphic showing the relationship between structured and unstructured data going into the future:
Now combining wider range of tools and techniques. Still have to be a good marketeer or PR operator. But need good knowledge of how to integrate SM tools into the communications mix
Now combining wider range of tools and techniques with event management – and adding capabilities such as broadcasting previously too expensive for most budgets. My Slidecast got 481 views in the first week after it was published on SlideShare.
Linking Open Data community project is to extend the Web with a data commons by publishing various open datasets as RDF on the Web and by setting RDF links between data items from different data sources. … By September 2011 this had grown to 31 billion RDF triples, interlinked by around 504 million RDF links.

New construction communications…. A We re v b olu 2.0 tio n!8
Changing PR • Online media – Digital news release – Opinion piece written in blog – Photos, video, slides incorporated • RSS, tweeted, shared (LI, FB), etc • e-newsletters • We are all publishers now!9
Changing meetings/events • Hybrid = online & face-2-face – Real-time sharing/feedback – Multiple locations – Presence no longer required – #hashtags • We are all broadcasters now!10
BIM visualisation via AR and QR codes? SNOW Architects • Daqri.com mobile web app builder • iPhone, iPad, Android apps to view Microstation BIMs21
See what I mean? In real-time? Woobius Eye (in Beta) • Share camera view remotely • Mark-up and discuss in real-time • Conference call • Literally “see what I mean?”22
Private project networks? Senubo (in Beta) • Social business for construction • PC and smartphone • On-site data download and data capture • Real-time reporting and status updates23
Collaboration updates via Twitter DM? Why not? If not via Twitter... … maybe via internal networks, eg:24
From Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 Web 1.0 = sites, pages, links (static, proprietary, non-interactive) Web 2.0 = people, participation (dynamic, interactive, connecting) Web 3.0 = machines (semantic, linked data, context)25
Semantic web "a web of data that can be processed directly and indirectly by machines” (Tim Berners-Lee) “… provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries”26
Contextualisation We have lots of data... … but in lots of different formats and models … and many data sources are not linked So: need a common data model RDF (Resource Description Framework)27

Linked data RDF data that links to other RDF data on the web is Linked data (Linked Open Data)32
Linked data “... if the past was document sharing, the future is data sharing” (Tim Berners-Lee) 1. A URL should point to the data. 2. Anyone accessing URL should get data back. 3. Relationships in the data should point to additional URLs with data.33
What does this mean in construction? 1. Linked data connects and provides context to social interactions and to data about physical world we live in. 2. Building Information Modelling (BIM) will increasingly apply Linked Data principles throughout the BIM lifecycle. Finding and linking relevant, related information will become increasingly34 important.
