Ubiquitous Microblogging: A Flow-based Front-end for Information Logistics
BIS 2010 Workshops, Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP 57), Springer, 2010
The success of information supply strongly depends on successful user adoption. This especially is the case for the integration of non-human in-formation sources deriving from ubiquitous computing. To allow ordinary us-ers to participate, there is a clear need for simple but yet powerful front-end technology. Therefore, we suggest leveraging existing and proven application patterns rather than building new concepts out of scratch. Especially Web 2.0 applications are designed for the management of millions of (human) net-worked information nodes and could be very useful in the context of Informa-tion Logistics. Beyond the Web 2.0 tool family, in particular microblogging could show a perfect match with Information Logistics scenarios due to its ad-hoc character and its simplicity. This paper discusses these possibilities and presents the vision of Ubiquitous Microblogging, which means a Twitter-like front-end for information from human and non-human information sources.
