        • A global, immersive, invisible, ambient networked computing environment built through the continued proliferation of smart sensors, cameras, software, databases, and massive data centers in a world-spanning information fabric known as the Internet of Things.
        • "Augmented reality" enhancements to the real-world input that people perceive through the use of portable/wearable/implantable technologies.
        • Disruption of business models established in the 20 th century (most notably impacting finance, entertainment, publishers of all sorts, and education).
        • Tagging, databasing, and intelligent analytical mapping of the physical and social realms.

              "Finch 18 Months On: A Review of Progress"

              Posted in Legislation and Government Regulation, Open Access on March 13th, 2014

              Michael Jubb has published "Finch 18 Months On: A Review of Progress: Based on a Paper Presented at the UKSG One-Day Conference, 'Open Access Realities', London, November 2013" in Insights: the UKSG Journal.

              Here's an excerpt:

              When the Finch Report was published in June 2012, it represented for me the culmination of nine months of intensive work as secretary to the Finch Group. But I was not allowed to rest on my laurels. The Group recognized that the task of implementation would be complex, involving work from many different stakeholders, and it pointed to the need for an implementation strategy that would involve all of them. Perhaps it should have been firmer in recommending how such a strategy should be developed and implemented. Nevertheless, the Group decided that it should as its final act meet in a year's time to assess progress. I was slightly apprehensive when I was asked to prepare a report for the Group to consider at that meeting. This paper—based on a presentation made at the UKSG conference in November 2013—considers the findings of that report, which was published the following week.
