CIL 2013 – Exposing the Information Landscape

17 May

Exposing the Information Landscape
Presenters: Sam Molyneux and Adrianna Gould

Sam Molyneux shared information about Sciencescape.org. This website provides real time results from science researchers and people can follow the research. The website will be launching June 2013. The website has a Twitter like interface. Sciencescape is brining researching into the social networking environment (Sciencescape.org Intro Video on Youtube.com http://youtu.be/XaUKZf00ub8).

Adrianna Gould shared information about DuckDuckGo.com (search engine). Information is available everywhere. The average searchers usually read the first four to five online results on a search engine and are satisfy. Google and other big search engines are known for tracking search results and use a filter bubble. DuckDuckGo.com claims that they don’t track searches and doesn’t use filter a bubble (http://dontbubble.us/).
