For my entire student life, I am always busy learning and learning. I read and write everyday and get knowledge from the outside world. I barely think about how to manage what I have learned and how to apply them in my future study and life. After the first class of knowledge management, I found it was so fascinating because it made me start thinking about my learning process. Just like this blog post, we can go through the knowledge and reflect back what we have learned. Also I really like the format of our class, I mean using facebook, twitter, scoop.it and other social media. We are learning communication in a fast changing and high technological mass media environment. There is no better way for us to study and research the mass media than that we are part of what we are learning.
Big Data and Algorithm
Two articles I read from scoop.it about big data and algorithm are really interesting. One is about IBM took the wraps off new data storage systems and software for businesses struggling to manage Big Data stores and cloudify their file access. (Pedro, 2013) Big data and cloud storage are really hot topics in nowadays. The advent of so-called "big data" means that companies, governments and organizations can collect, interpret and wield huge stores of data to an amazing breadth of ends. (
We are in a data centered society. Society is built surrounding data more than people or real building. Also we do not communicate with people by sending them messages directly, but by modifying the environment around them. Building bigger more capable storage systems is only part of IBM's strategy for tackling Big Data. The tech titan wants to help organizations have less to store. (

refresh is part of IBM's plan to bring once lofty IT projects, namely Big Data
and cloud computing, down to earth for more businesses. ( Taylor , 2012) Taylor
"Big data and cloud systems that were once only affordable to large enterprises are now available to the masses. With these new systems, IBM is forging an aggressive expansion of its Power and Storage Systems business into SMB and growth markets," (
Sasha Issenberg got a new book out, The Victory Lab, and he’s been hitting the interview circuit informing viewers political campaigns have officially embraced the age of big data, algorithmic analysis, and behavioral science. (Jason, 2012)
Personal Knowledge Management (PKM)
Terms such as Filter or Sense don’t adequately describe the sense-making process in PKM. We are adding value (and context) to information so that we can later retrieve it and perhaps use it. Whatever we make transparent is value-added information for others, especially if we do it consciously and well. (Harold, 2010)
