Homepage | EDELKOORT Thinking for a Living™ Gartner Adds Big Data, Gamification, and Internet of Things to Its Hype Cycle Gartner is once again taking a look at the "hype cycle" for technologies and trying to assess where technologies lie along the bumpy road from technology trigger to productivity. This year, Gartner is adding big data, Internet of Things, gamification and consumerization to the Hype Cycle that weren't present in 2010. According to Gartner, private cloud computing has reached the peak level of hype, and cloud/Web platforms are slipping into the "trough of disillusionment" in the face of Platform as a Service (PaaS).

Twitter favorites has long been the only way to easily remember and share Tweets of interest. How does it work? Curated.by allows the user to create “bundles” of tweets which are similar to folders of favorites. … or by adding the Google Chrome extension which will add a “Curate” button to your regular Twitter web view. The bundle can be tagged for easy searching and can be set to either public (i.e. shareable) or private. What doesn’t it do? It also should not overlook mobile.
