How are you finding out what you need to know? Are you getting the information when you need it? Or have you become accustomed to waiting for your “alert?”
Zack Whittaker of ZDNet reports today about the draft Data Communications Bill that HM the Queen outlined in her annual speech to Parliament. He summarizes, "The draft “Communications Data Bill” is will expand the U.K. government’s Web, email, and call monitoring powers..." including allowing the police, intelligence services and other government departments to have access to its citizens’ Web, email and phone traffic to see every shred of “communication data” collected and stored by ISPs and phone companies which could then be accessed in near-realtime speed by U.K. authorities.

One of the questions I get the most about the Darwin Awareness Engine is how “awareness” differs from “search.”
I’m getting really tired of hearing about Information Overload. I think we sometimes make the same mistake here at Darwin in thinking that what the Darwin Awareness Engine (DAE) does is help information workers deal with Overload, when what we do is something subtly, but importantly, different. The DAE organizes bits of data into patterns that help the user understand what’s different about the world. This is competitive awareness.
