Untangling the Web: Man Plus Machine

I’ve got a piece up over at TCS Daily entitled Untangling the Web: Man Plus Machine. Outside of my work at the Corante Web Hub, it’s my first splash into more established writing:

Just as before, the expertise of humans and the automation of technology are being used to try to sort through the noise created by blogs and the 24-7 news cycle. The difference is that, this time, the two approaches are not entirely mutually exclusive. In fact, in some cases, the two are beginning to work hand-in-hand.

Be sure to check it out.

It’s definitely educational in nature because I didn’t want to assume my audience was entirely familiar with “geek speak”. At the same time, it looks beyond the surface of something like “Digg and TailRank are cool” – I really wanted to provide readers with some analysis to what’s unfolding on the web.

I hope this piece will be the first of many writing opportunities. If you are looking for Internet / web related writing or blogging (especially covering Internet / web trends or “Web 2.0″), please contact me.
