Opinion / Analysis

Building your own schema.org

Data integration is rarely easy for any organization, but is a functional requirement that grows in complexity and cost as data and data applications ineluctably increase. Tony Seale explains how you can manage both these problems by inverting the data integration problem within your organization with a model inspired by schema.org. Seale, who has been building decentralized knowledge graphs for years and is currently doing so at UBS, packs a lot into this post at (8 min).

Systems thinking for knowledge management

We have recommended a number of articles by Dan McCreary on enterprise knowledge graphs. In this post McCreary looks at

… how we can use Systems Thinking to understand the dynamics of building your organization’s collective intelligence. We will review the key Causal Loop Diagrams (CLDs) as models we use to understand organizational knowledge capture and retention. Then we describe how we can use these models… (12 min).

Autonomy, packet size, friction, fanout, and velocity

Interesting framing on the fediverse from Jon Udell (<2 min).

Nostalgia is a dangerous drug and it’s always risky to wallow in it. So those of us who fondly remember the early blogosphere, and now want to draw parallels to the fediverse, should do so carefully. But we do want to learn from history. Here’s one way to compare five generations of social software along the five dimensions named in the title of this post.

Opinion / Analysis

Browsers reimagined

Browsers are the lens through which we see the web. And considering how much the content of the web has changed over the past few decades … it sometimes feels a little strange that the browser experience has remained more or less the same.

Amber Case has some suggestions for future browsers / versions. (13 min).

Hope for a Post-Musk Net. A federated future and suggestions for citizens and institutions

Jeff Jarvis is not leaving Twitter. But he is also now happily on Mastodon, rooting for Bluesky, a fan of protocols over platforms, and owning your own presence and content. Having your own website and using platforms for additional distribution, as I do, is the way to go if you can, but protocols can help everyone get back some control. (8 min).

Opinion / Analysis

Why we’re leaving the cloud

The cloud has never been the solution for everyone, but after years of marketing by cloud platforms, VCs, analysts, and the media, that may come as a surprise to some. We have covered some of the cost and control challenges before (hereherehere, and here). David Heinemeier Hansson explains why the cloud is not the right fit for his company and other “medium-sized” organizations. (4 min).

Opinion / Analysis

One big graph and the interorganization

Alan Morrison makes the case for a less-hyped version of web3 as an “evolution of P2P networking + shared file systems” that is achievable today — not that it will be easy given the huge technical debt we are currently saddled with. Morrison’s argument however is appealing and a worthy and easy read. (4 min).

https://www.datasciencecentral.com/one-big-graph-and-the-interorganization/

APIs don’t matter?!?

APIs are of course valuable for platform, application, and line-of business developers, but as API ecosystems evolve over time the value to each of these shifts. Terry Crowley explains, for example, how the moat value of APIs to platforms degrades over time. Crowley also looks at other ways the value changes that anyone in the API value chain ecosystem will benefit from understanding. (11 min).

Opinion / Analysis

Designing a content management system backend

I will present a case study of the development of a ‘Content Management System’ backend which was developed for the website of a leading UK based journal.

Adwait Mathkari describes the CMS his development team created for one of the The Economist publications. The requirements were relatively straightforward, allowing Mathkari to be delightfully succinct (4 min).
