Crossing the Divide

WebWise2012, a new world view quietly arrives

Following up on my last post about the DPLA and WebWise2012, my takeaway from the conference was that we have now completely¬†crossed the divide in the digital world from being concerned with creating digital content to figuring out how to manipulate, combine, and visualize the body of digital content that now exists. I know that for many people this divide was crossed some time ago, but the reason I know we really have moved to a new world-view was that nobody was talking about it at WebWise. It didn’t have to be talked about because it was just an assumption of most everyone that there was a body of digital content out there to manipulate, aggregate, and visualize.
