Ubiquitous Microblogging: A Flow-Based Front-End for Information Logistics
The success of information supply strongly depends on successful user adoption. This especially is the case for the integration of non-human information sources deriving from ubiquitous computing. To allow ordinary users 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) networked information nodes and could be very useful in the context of Information Logistics. Beyond the Web 2.0 tool family, in particular microblogging could show a perfect match with Information Logistics scenarios due to its adhoc 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.
