The ability to ‘write’ data to the internet via tags and barcodes offers a context in which objects will increasingly become a natural extension of the web. And as easy as the public was to adopt cloud based services to store address books, documents, photos and videos, it is likely that we will begin associating data with objects. Leaving messages for loved ones on a tea cup, listening to a story left on a family heirloom, or associating a message with an object to be passed on to a stranger. Using objects as tangible links to data and content on the internet is predicted to become a significant means of how we interact with the interface of things, places and people. This chapter will explore this potential and focus upon three contexts in which the technology is already operating, in order to reflect upon the impact that the technology process may have upon social processes. These social processes are knowledge browsing; knowledge recovery and knowledge sharing.
