Personalisation in presentation
What people say about this report
There's a very useful new study titled "Personalisation in Presentation Services" authored by Neil Smith, Seb Schmoller and Nicky Ferguson and commissioned by the UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). It's a broad look at how personalization technologies can be deployed in a variety of information environments.
An excellent academic paper on personalization as a business case
I enjoyed it and thought it very useful. Also, refreshingly, it was more inclusive of a variety of perspectives than some of what I have read.
Thank you for bringing your report to my attention. I read it on the plane and found it very interesting. I plan to pull some of your summary into an email message and post a link to the mylib-dev mailing list.
