Steve, What about an Internet Evolution Junior section? There is a YouTube for kids where the youngsters can post, share and feel they have their own space. IE could offer a special place on the site for the so many whiz kids in the world who follow the latest news and innovations happening on the Internet. We all know that there are many Internet experts under eighteen out there. Many of them will probably be the developers of the future. It would be a good idea to give them a little push and support.
How about a collaborative project with the schools worldwide? the project could combine the English and Technology classes, maybe some others too. Supervised by the teachers, the best articles could be posted on the Internet Evolution Junior, where other students could comment and share their knowledge, ideas and thoughts with parents, teachers and even us, who could also act as mentors in some cases. I am pretty sure IBM would be glad to sponsor and support a project like this.
The project would help motivate the students in improving their writing, grammar, technology, computing classes to mention a few. We will be using our social networking knowledge for a new audience and expanding the IE to those countries where it hasn't reached yet or doesn't have registered members. How does it sound?
With all due respect, it is call Football! There is no way we (I mean the entire world) would allow the U.S. to redefine our beautiful game. Call it what you may but we still consider it to be football even though the NFL has a new follower in me.
So my question now is how does IE get related with soccer? Are you just trying to stretch the frontiers of IE to areas we are damn interested in? Never know in amillion years that you a Brit!! Are you scottish in particular or Irish because I just can't keep up with the noisy English even though I'm a die-hard Manchester United Fan??
Facebook's Graph Search may face some profound challenges and risks, first, because Facebook users haven't been thinking of their posts as product reviews; and second, because Facebook will now have to contend with the social-network equivalent of SEO "gaming" of results.
MySpace is reinventing itself by focusing on content, but it's too late, and other social networks should learn from its example by looking toward a telco payment model if they want to sustain user commitment and their own revenue.
