Square COO Explains Why The Web Is Dead The Web is dying, and mobile devices with dedicated apps are the reason. That's what Keith Rabois told an audience at the VentureBeat Mobile Summit last night. Rabois is currently the COO of mobile payments company Square, has been in corporate development at Slide and PayPal, and is a successful angel investor too. Rabois said that smartphone and tablet users prefer using native apps whenever possible, and only visit the browser as a last resort. He cited Yelp -- he's on the board of directors -- as an example. The company's mobile apps have one-tenth the number of users as its Web site. Square COO Explains Why The Web Is Dead
The Web is dead, or at least in decline, declares Wired editor Chris Anderson in the magazine’s September cover story. The article is anchored by the startling infographic above, which shows the proportion of different types of traffic on the Internet. The Web, HTML traffic visible though a browser, is only about a quarter (23%) of the overall traffic, down from about half a decade ago. It’s been pushed down by peer-to-peer (23%), video (51%), and other types of apps which use the Internet for transport but are not browser-based. It’s not clear what exactly Wired is counting as video, but presumably it is not all of the Flash video on YouTube which is very much part of the Web. Setting aside whether Wired massaged the numbers to make its chart look pretty, Anderson’s larger point is that increasingly we are consuming information via apps other than the browser.

Libraries in the Digital Age (Lida) 2007 by Sanjica Faletar Tanackovic, Maja Krtalic Libraries in the Digital Age (Lida) 2007 by Sanjica Faletar Tanackovic, Maja Krtalic Researchers are not only relying more on libraries, but they seem to be reading more, according to Donald W King, distinguished research professor at the University of North Carolina (UNC)-Chapel Hill. King addressed an audience at the Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) 2007 conference, held from May 28 to June 2 in Dubrovnik and Mljet, Croatia. He replicated a previous study he did with Carol Tenopir from the University of Tennessee, explaining that this increased usage was caused by a decrease in personal collections, more articles being read than can be identified by online bibliographic searches, along with broadened access to articles through electronic collections.
Libraries, the Internet, and Scholarship: Tools and Trends Converging by Charles F. Thomas
Embracing digital scholarship (Create Change) Embracing digital scholarship (Create Change) The opportunities and competitive demands of scholarship in this new environment are here to stay. Practices that made sense in the print environment must now be reconsidered and adapted to the possibilities of digital scholarship: "Digital scholarship is becoming pervasive in the humanities and must be recognized as a legitimate scholarly endeavor," a Modern Language Association report asserts. "We must have the flexibility to ensure that as new sources and instruments for knowing develop, the meaning of scholarship can expand and remain relevant to our changing times." (Report of the MLA Task Force on Evaluating Scholarship for Tenure and Promotion, p.43ff)A report commissioned by the American Council of Learned Societies points to the “inherently democratizing power” of digital information, but warns "that power can be unleashed only if access to the cultural record is as open as possible, in both intellectual and economic terms, to the public."

Digital Scholarship Reconsidered Digital Scholarship Reconsidered In 1990 Ernest Boyer made an important contribution to the literature of higher education by authoring the book Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate. Boyer’s material was based on the results of a 1989 survey of faculty across the nation sponsored by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Boyer said we must “…break out of the tired old teaching versus research debate and define, in more creative ways, what it means to be a scholar”. He described four types of scholarship in order to expand higher education’s thinking about what it meant to produce scholarly work; it needn’t be defined only by scholarly monographs or publications in high-impact peer review journals. Boyer suggested that teaching, application, and integration (of existing knowledge) could be as important to the advancement of knowledge and higher eduction as the scholarship of discovery.
In 1813, Thomas Jefferson declared in a letter to Isaac McPherson: “He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me. That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature….” “Sharing,” by Josh Harper Digital Scholarship in the Humanities | Exploring the digital humanities

We are currently witnessing a revolution in the way books are written, published, and read. Authors are increasingly using digital technologies to become publishers and distributors of their own work, and readers are beginning to embrace new formats, genres, and reading devices that better conform to their reading needs. The Digital Scholar serves as a resource for independent scholars, academics, and other thought leaders who want to take advantage of these new publishing technologies. By using the resources on this website, you can begin to take control over the distribution of your writing, ideas, and scholarship, whether you are an academic or a scholar who is unaffiliated with an educational institution. Blogging – Blogs are a powerful way to connect with readers and to market and distribute your writing. They allow you to publish articles instantaneously with minimal effort, and their format practically compels you to produce content on a regular basis.
