Looking through my blog today made me think it needs more pictures, so I googled tech pic. I scrolled through the results until something caught my eye–naturally it was an infographic that kinda resembled the symbol for the Galactic Empire. Original Link
Infographics are one of the greatest byproducts of Web 2.0. They allow people to visually arrange information in a way that is easy to digest. A complicated topic can be simplified and arranged according to informational flow and different categories. I think the standardization of infographs will change the way people share information and learn.
Imagine a constitutional amendment for the digital age that required laws to be written in a manner that could be explained to the people with simple information graphics and charts.
The infographic below does a great job outlining the possible future of Health Technology.
Here is a breakdown of the Main categories:
- Telemedicine (Remote Doctors)
It also mentions some neat technology including:
- Synthetic & Artificial Organs
- 3D Printers
- Life Extension
- Remote Virtual Presence
- Mobile Health
- Big Data
- Sensors (Internal/External)
- Sensory Augmentation

Today is YouTube Tuesday! It’s not official or anything, but it is the day of the week that I focus on YouTube and advise people to do the same. I guess this post makes YouTube Tuesday official for the networkn8 blog. Why Tuesday? YouTube Tuesday just has a nice sound to it–kinda flows off the tongue.
Did I mention YouTube enough to get noticed by search engines? I stylized the name correctly, but should I also be linking to YouTube? Out of all the Web 2.0 platforms and avenues to the Organic Internet, YouTube is my favorite. I know it’s not nice to laugh at the cable companies and satellite providers while there is a mass exodus from cable subscriptions to Strictly Streaming, but they had it coming. Checkout my article about The Future of Streaming Online Content.
I recently discovered that YouTube has a Creator Academy. I wouldn’t say I have enrolled yet, but I started watching the videos. It’s free and shows users how to produce the best content possible. I am really excited to see what gets created in the next couple years. Netflix already changed everything about the way we watch TV and movies, then they started producing incredible content of their own. House of Cards is one of the top three television shows EVER created. YouTube won’t be far behind. The major TV networks and studios that have been around for decades will soon be scratching their heads trying to figure-out how YouTube, Netflix, and others became the top content providers and producers.
