NEASIS&T Awards Dinner with special guest Peter Morville "Ambient

May 11 2006, 6-9pm

MIT Faculty Club, 50 Memorial Drive (Building E52), Cambridge, MA

Join us for a fabulous night of fine dining and fascinating discussion
with Peter Morville, President and Founder of Semantic Studios, author
of "Ambient Findability" and co-author of "Information Architecture and
the World Wide Web."

Peter will speak on Ambient Findability: "At the crossroads of
ubiquitous computing and the Internet, the user experience is out of
control, and findability is the real story. Access changes the game. We
can select our sources and choose our news. We can find who and what we
need, when and where we want. As society shifts from push to pull,
findability shapes who we trust, how we learn, and where we go. In this
cyberspace safari, Peter Morville explores the future present in search
algorithms, embedded metadata, ontologies, folksonomies, mobile devices,
findable objects, evolutionary psychology, and the long tail of the
sociosemantic web."

Presentation followed by discussion.
