As we get closer to the day when every person, thing, and device finds a route to connect and communicate with the Internet, the power of web relationships will open up countless new opportunities—from shaping the course of big events (like reducing the impact of natural disasters) to more personal benefits (like monitoring our health or making sure we never forget our Grandma’s birthday). We become more and more reliant on the Internet to remind, guide, and think for us.
How We Feed the Internet
It is easy to appreciate all the ways the Internet has improved our lives, but reciprocity isn’t quite so apparent. That’s right, giving back to the Internet. The fact is, most of the content on the Web has been created and put there by humans in some form or another. From information rich in entertainment to once seemingly mundane data of our comings and goings, the Internet’s prosperity is dependent on content generated by us as individuals and organizations. With the Internet of Things, the data possibilities are endless—think of sensors tracking our every movement, pet monitoring, or habit feedback; without our data, the Web is a lot less interesting.
The Power of Connection
As new companies find innovative ways to improve our quality of life, it means that even more of our data will be leveraged in new ways. This will mean allowing companies, objects, and other people to connect with us for data to support this vision. It’s a little overwhelming to think that with a truly global vision of the Internet, we will participate by sharing more of ourselves. But, it’s also exciting to know that the picture of this complete participation will create a rich and (hopefully) accurate online landscape. By leveraging the power of humans around the world we will have access to a better way to solve problems, which in turn helps us address the challenges of people around the world. We can solve problems that seemed too overwhelming just a few years ago by leveraging Big Data.
Channeling the Flow of Data
By partnering with organizations, we give them the tools to dream big without sacrificing simplicity, security, and ideas. Don’t limit the incredible amount of data that flows back and forth from people to the Internet—leverage it. The impact of connecting everyone can be truly remarkable.
