A cornucopia of near real-time information sharing is available to those who know where to look and what to harvest.
Various emerging technologies, comprising the “Superfresh” web, engage split-second content aggregation that can have immediate implications not only for those who are “tuned-in” and “turned-on” but also those who “dropped-out” (or never “were-in”).
But how can one determine validity and practicality amongst the sprawl of the web and to know what is fresh, what is ripe and what should be composted?
The abundance of trends, hype and information overload may be difficult to sift through.  However, this presentation will provide better clarification by investigating the rising Web 2.0 technologies, near real-time content aggregation and its implications for food safety information and beyond.
Jimmy Liu has worked in the food industry for over 9 years as a product development manager and a quality assurance manager at a food manufacturing facility.  For the past 8 years, he has been with the Food Safety Information Center at the National Agricultural Library as a technical information specialist working on Web and database development.  He is currently involved with Web 2.0 and social media initiatives at the National Agricultural Library.
