New Custom Social Search from Google

Quite a few announcements yesterday from Google one of the most important has to be the one about Social Search -launched on google labs that is based on the “social graph” principles whereby all friends and associated content within your cirlce should provide a more relevant source of results:-

“(..) a new feature that allows you to see results for queries from people in your social network. This works by using your Google Profile. If you fill it out with the other social networks you’re a member of, such as FriendFeed, Google will scan who you are connected to and give your results from those people.

This opens up a whole new area to certain sectors especially travel and I will let Kevin May over at tnooz explain it in detail, it also has a major impact on SEO and how people get the best results and act on them something  that is discussed here on huomah.

The Camera Changes the Way We Behave!

Just watched this from a tweet from Graham Lineham it is just pure class and also a sad reflection on how media can affect us and how we interact with media.

“One day a kid made a fake TV camera – everybody then became a series of competing news operations – then a fight kicks off kids focusing on fight breathless reporting and nobody steps in to help – the whole TV camera craze had gotten out of control!!

The camera really changed how we behaved we lost our humanity and they weren’t even real cameras!”

Accelerometers to be supported in Firefox 3.6

Accelerometers

Looks like the developers at Mozilla are adding accelerometer support as part of Firefox 3.6 it will allow support for web pages to access machine orientation information if it’s available. This and the emergence of Microsofts surface technology are definitely moving the realms of interactivity with the digital medium forward.

As you can see by clicking the image above (or link below) you can use it to figure out if the machine is moving and what direction it’s facing more can be found here at http://hacks.mozilla.org/interesting times along with more things to think about when developing the next generation of sites.

Surface Technology Travel Planning the Future?

I realise it’s a little old news but just got round to having  look at this video and what travel tainment have to offer along with Microsoft’s Surface Technology unit.

Looking at it from a travel professional point of view surface could be a big part of the way we deliver our content to the end user; however it needs to be but positioned at a reasonable price and with valid content. If these elements are covered then it could be part of the consumer research & planning cycle – allowing two-way integration with the web – research on Surface, post your research back to the web to share with friends or family and then book.

It looks vey impressive and the potential is vast but as this is still an experiment its very early days but ones that could herald a new form of interactivity into the travel market?
