social software and plazes
more and more “social software” is coming up – social software allows people to interact in virtual reality, connecting or collaborating by the use of a computer network (see the wikipedia-entries in english or german).
and this is all coming together – virtual social networks like openbc, orkut or linkedin, the blogosphere, instant messenger, wikis, voip, foaf and geo-information systems like “plazes“:
“plazes is the first global location-aware interaction and geo-information system, connecting you with the people and plazes in your area and all over the world. it is the navigation system for your social life.”
all these systems bring up so many new chances, potentials and evolutions for the people and future of the net and i’m anxious to follow the development … if you want to take a look into the future, just watch this incredible spot!
