First You Google, But Then What?
Hans Peter Brøndmo, CEO and Co-founder, Plum
Search engines have become the oracles of our age. We turn to them for answers about almost everything. But how do we remember, review, and remix those answers? How do we take the things we care about, stumble across, or need from the Web, from the desktop, from email, and pull it all together in ways that will be useful the day after? While one's attention is on an upcoming trip to Bhutan one moment, it will be on a bug in some code and an insightful blog post minutes later. So how to collect and share snapshots of the million-and-one things capturing one's attention so that it can be useful later?
This talk offers a look at a beta web service called Plum where you can collect (almost) anything, share it in a form that fits the function and connect the things you collect with other peoples sometimes beautiful, often messy collections of attention. Moreover it will show examples and introduce an open set of APIs that enables remote desktop and web applications alike to utilize a rich set of web services and a hosted extensible, property based data model in order to collect, share, and connect from anywhere. Its pretty media agnostic, feed friendly, and quite RESTful too.
