This paper presents AFICUS, an architecture and implementation of a technology dedicated to pushing current Internet content consumer to become a prosumer (fully acting as content producer and consumer). To make this possible, AFICUS behaves as a middleware intercepting and analyzing the whole spectrum of the actual technological communications (mobile phone, social networks, IPTV, etc.). Thanks to this middle position, AFICUS is able to automatically enrich, augment, summarize, store, combine, adapt and distribute user-generated content without requiring any additional actions from the user. This kind of architecture opens new mechanisms for conceiving services and business models in the context of the Future Internet.
