The LEGO of The WEB

BagTheWeb offers a new way to democratize the information architecture of the Web for ordinary users. When user-generated links become as popular as user-generated content, the user crowd will become the editors of the Web. Consequently, the Web will become smarter with information islands connected by bags.

Basically, BagTheWeb not only creates a platform upon which people can organize information easily but also arranges information using an innovative approach known as relevancy linking. It moves beyond chronological order, classification, and folksonomy.

Bagging will soon become as common a Web utility as information finding, blogging, and information sharing are today.

BagTheWeb will make a significant impact on the Web by launching a new way to form inter-webpage relationships and enhancing the fundamental structure of Web linking.

Imagine a bag as a mirror of a part of your brain that expresses your thoughts. If we had a billion users, that will be the shared brain of the planet.

What’s Curation Commons?

Basically, Curation Commons means people curate public web content to build a CC licensed content network that anyone can access on the Web. Curation Commons is inspired by Creative Commons. The Web has a lot of contents. Now we need curators to re-organize these original creations. People can choose Creative Commons licenses for their curated contents to form a new content network anyone can assess on the Web.

The Memories of Independence Day Holidays

Two years ago, I was an active user on SlideShare.net, I am now working for a new web curation platform BagTheWeb.com. It is a new and exciting experience for me.

Yesterday I created a unique bag to share my memories of Independence Day holidays during past three years. It records the tracks of my career as well as my interests and activities. I now clearly see the fragments of these memories remixed into a big picture I call Curation Commons. The idea of Curation Commons is a dream that might change, but it reveals an exciting view toward the future. The process of building this bag has also inspired me to think what happiness is. Here comes its blog version.
