A tectonic shift
The information flows that define how our society works, its institutions, services and economics, are in a state of transition: from ‘top down’ and ‘one way’ (organisations publishing information and sending messages to individuals) to ‘bottom up’, ‘peer-to-peer’ and a ‘two way’ information exchange.
Personal Information Management Services
This tectonic shift is making new types of Personal Information Management Service (PIMS) possible.
PIMS are services that work for individuals helping them to gather, use and share the information they need to achieve their purposes. In commercial and practical terms this boils down to making better decisions, and implementing these decisions better.
