Chasing Real-Time Raindrops in an Ocean of Content
The web is huge. And growing. Faster everyday. It’s almost like an ocean where there would be no evaporation (the data on the web stays there virtually forever), but yet, it’s always raining in it. The rain is the new content that’s added into the ocean. Every tweet is a drop, every blog post is a drop, every checkin is a drop that falls into the Ocean. This ocean is almost constantly under a tropical storm in some places, like Twitter or Facebook.
I’ve been invited by Marshall Kirkpatrick to write a guest post on ReadWriteWeb about the fact that Google will soon include PubSubHubbub data in its search engine. I hope you can read it and leave some comments there.
