I just was invited to Qwiki Alpha, the interactive, "information experience' platform that creates multimedia-rich wikis algorithmically out of data sets, instead of by user input and peer review!
Despite simply being fascinating and amazingly cool, Qwiki has profound implications upon the future of search and data organization.
Please note that according to Qwiki:
1. This experience was not generated by humans. It was generated by machines.
2. This experience is completely curated.
3. The experience is completely interactive
I had written about how exited I was about the possibilities of Qwiki a few weeks ago, but apparently they have now launched the Alpha version to select users. Also on Friday, Qwiki also announced a round of funding from tech-celebs Eduardo Saverin (Facebook co-founder) and Jawed-Karim (YouTube co-founder).
I cannot wait to test this out more, but see below for an entirely computer generated entry about the word "Wiki."
