Brilliant Ways to Develop Your Communication Skills - 1 views

    People who speak English often feel that their language skills are not perfect. Very few people can claim to have a very good command over the language and this becomes very prominent when they have to communicate in English. They feel that their communication skills are not as good as they should be, especially if they are communicating with foreigners. However, it is important to understand that in order to improve your communication skills, you need to take active steps towards it. It does not happen by itself and you will have to put in some effort before you can reach the level of fluency that you want. Good communication skills are very important in life, not just for students but also for teachers, managers and corporate professionals. It is a fact that people who can speak English well have more opportunities than people who do not have this skill. While there are many ways in which you can improve your language skills, we offer you some excellent tips that can help here: Make an effort to learn new words every day and use them One of the most effective ways of improving your English language skills is to make an effort to learn new words every day and use them whenever you get a chance. Reading The number one rule is to read as much as possible! Reading books, magazines, news articles, or even blogs can help you learn new vocabulary and take in new information. It will also help you with your grammar. You could get some audiobooks, so you can listen while you are doing other things like commuting, exercising etc. Watching movies and shows Watching movies and TV shows is another excellent way to learn English. Most movies have subtitles that display the text on the screen at the same time as it is spoken. Start out with a few movies or shows in your native language (with English subtitles).

What's Next After Web 2.0? - 0 views

  • Mark Johnson, Powerset/Microsoft Program Manager, commented that "the next era of the Web will represent greater understanding of computers." He went on to suggest that "if Web 1.0 was about Read and Web 2.0 was about Read/Write, then Web 3.0 should be about Read/Write/Understand." Specifically he said that "a computer that can understand should be able to: find us information that we care about better (e.g., smart news alerts), make intelligent recommendations for us (e.g., implicit recommendations based on our reading/surfing/buying behavior), aggregate and simplify information. . . and probably lots of other things that we haven't yet imagined, since our computers are still pretty dumb."
  • Aziz Poonawalla said "folksonomy, leveraged en masse, could render algorithmic search obsolete. you get Semantic web almost for free."
  • Education is one area ripe for Web innovation. Harley of WorldLearningTree recently submitted his suggestions on how to revolutionalize online education to Google's "Project10ToThe100" contest.

  • Sandra Foyt is looking for a "better learning/connecting hub". She elaborates: "I want a command center where it's easy to share all kinds of digital media, while being able to chat or microblog. An all in one home base, with Twitter/Flock/Ning/Wiki/Flickr/YouTube elements."
  • Jorge Escobar said that the next era will be "Web Real World" - by which he meant "offline activities driven by web services (geoloc, mobile, niche)".
  • Two trends of the current era are the increasing internationalization of the Web and mobile products like iPhone and Android becoming more prominent. It almost goes without saying that both of these things will become more prevelant over the coming years - and indeed both depend on the other...
  • The jury is still out on whether web 2.0 has officially ended. Of course the Web is iterative and so version numbers don't really mean anything. But even so we may see more of a focus on 'real world' problems from now on and a move away from consumer apps as the primary focus.
