Is Pre-Cognition Possible & Can It Beat Twitter on Breaking News? Recorded Future is a startup technology company that described itself as a "temporal analytics engine." It tries to uncover and analyze very faint signals, basically in order to predict the future. It's backed by Google Ventures and the data-loving VC firm IA Ventures. Today, Recorded Future articulated its vision of the future of news. By news they don't just mean what's broadcast on TV at 5 and 11, they mean current events of interest to people seeking actionable information. The gist of the company's argument is this: real-time web publishing, best exemplified by the news-breaking social network Twitter, is ultimately a race to the bottom.
Google search: Political power - Kim Hart Google’s aggressive tactics have put it on top of the business world, and now the Internet giant is looking to leverage the high profile and sterling connections of its CEO to achieve similar power in the political sphere. Google boss Eric Schmidt is one of the nation’s most politically active business leaders — a man who uses the cachet of the company he leads, as well as his own charisma, to build strategic alliances in the Obama administration and on Capitol Hill. Schmidt, 55, grew up in Washington and returns frequently to visit his mother, who still lives in Northern Virginia.

» Google and CIA Plough Millions Into Huge ‘Recorded Future’ Monitoring Project Alex Jones Steve WatsonPrisonplanet.com Thursday, Jul 29th, 2010 Google’s cosy relationship with the U.S. spy network has once again been thrust into the spotlight as the company is reported to have jointly invested with the CIA in an Internet monitoring project that scours Twitter accounts, blogs and websites for all sorts of information, and can also “predict the future”. Google Ventures, the investment arm of Google, has injected a sum of up to $10 million, as has In-Q-Tel – which handles investments for the CIA and the wider intelligence network – into a company called Recorded Future.

Twitter, Facebook, and social activism At four-thirty in the afternoon on Monday, February 1, 1960, four college students sat down at the lunch counter at the Woolworth’s in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina. They were freshmen at North Carolina A. & T., a black college a mile or so away. “I’d like a cup of coffee, please,” one of the four, Ezell Blair, said to the waitress. “We don’t serve Negroes here,” she replied. The Woolworth’s lunch counter was a long L-shaped bar that could seat sixty-six people, with a standup snack bar at one end. The seats were for whites.
Recorded Future Knows Tomorrow - Already I began reviewing Recorded Future as a PR tool – a mere resource to get news material for Everything PR. It soon became clear that Recorded Future was much, much more. Terms like analytics, beyond search, and business intelligence are not new, of course, but no one, literally no one, has ever given them more meaning than Recorded Future with their temporal analytics engine. So much meaning, that the company has already caught the attention of two other entities that love “intelligence” beyond search: Google and the CIA. Before diving into paranoid scenarios, where Google and the US intelligence control the web, understand that Recorded Future deals exclusively with public information, the kind of information you publish on the Internet voluntarily. What Recorded Future does is monitoring this information, analyzing data and projecting the when and where.
Exclusive: Google, CIA Invest in ‘Future’ of Web Monitoring The investment arms of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time — and says it uses that information to predict the future. The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — both present and still-to-come. In a white paper, the company says its temporal analytics engine “goes beyond search” by “looking at the ‘invisible links’ between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities and events.” The idea is to figure out for each incident who was involved, where it happened and when it might go down.
Content Strategy: Exploring Content Curation Tools Content curation has been getting a lot of attention recently. We’ve covered what it is, why it’s valuable and offered best practices on how to curate content on your own. Yet, if management systems can be designed to manage content, why not build one to curate content? More than RSS feeds or topical searches, there are a few products that aim to help professionals gather content from around the web that’s relevant to them. Not only does this help keep track of it all, it makes it easier to collect and share with others — making it ideal for starting conversations and improving customer experience. Curating content is a great way to show the relevance of specific topics within an industry and it’s also a great way to establish trust with your audience.

Is Google Watching You? New Plugin Will Let You Know [APPS] Another rad browser plugin called Google Alarm hit the Internets this week, which alerts you every time your personal info is sent to Google's servers. How? Via notifications, a running tally of dangerous sites and, naturally, a super annoying, vuvuzela-like alarm. After seeing this new plugin — which works with both Firefox and Chrome — on F.A.T., I contacted the developer who made it: Jamie Wilkinson, who also created Know Your Meme and Mag.ma. Google Alarm, which was made during F.A.T.'
The Seven Needs of Real-Time Curators I keep hearing people throw around the word “curation” at various conferences, most recently at SXSW. The thing is most of the time when I dig into what they are saying they usually have no clue about what curation really is or how it could be applied to the real-time world. So, over the past few months I’ve been talking to tons of entrepreneurs about the tools that curators actually need and I’ve identified seven things. First, who does curation?
