The Beauty of Pinterest

In the realm of visual search tools and idea collection,the Pinterest Site stands shoulders above the rest.Images submitted by users are categorized a spins and arranged into boards.This board can be described a visual notebook of sorts.These pins can be can repinned by the boards followers or by general users(the pins are listed in a general data feed by category as well ) If so desired, items collected in the boards can be shared with other social media outlets.Most content that’s gets collected is not unique to Pinterest but rather aggregated from various sources around the web.However I find it to be great alternative to standard web browsing with text.The searching becomes more immersive and in most cases more interesting.I believe future search engines may imbue some of the attributes of Pinterest.Overall its well done and a great addition the social media ecosystem.

In the many exploding genres of expotentially developing technology,wearable computing will become the next iteration of the user interface.Next generation materials will over time  allow the molding and integration of the touch display to ourselves.The gap between human and machine growing incrementally smaller. Even though we are in the Wright Brothers stage of things,this fall should see the first flight of smartwatch devices.Apple,Google,Microsoft,Samsung and a Kickstarter/Indigogo startups will be the initial players.

I am excited.The Internet of Things slowly becomes a reality.Paradigm Shift.
