Bottom-up Information Sharing using Drupal 7 and ISS (Instant Syndicating Standards)
A presentation by Nick Vidal on Drupal 7 and ISS (Instant Syndicating Standards). ISS is a unique set of open standards that empowers individuals to discover and syndicate information through the help of their own social network.
The key contribution of ISS is that it challenges the top-down model of information-sharing and gives place to a bottom-up model, where each person has a unique voice and opportunity to contribute and benefit. In this way, ISS hopes to bring people closer together to discuss common interests and share information in a more open and democratic manner.
Update: the slides from the presentation are now attached to this post as a PDF.
