Expect this to be wide-ranging and extremely practical. Those of us who have had the good fortune to come under Howard's tutelage can all attest to his mastery of the subject. Hello, Howard! And thanks for the intro, Ted! One Conversation Begat Another: Howard Rhinegold and Henry Jenkins. Over the last two installments, I’ve shared a short exchange between myself, Mimi Ito, and danah boyd, the three authors of the newly released book, Participatory Culture in a Networked Era.

Howard Rheingold: Knowing How to Collaborate Is Essential

The book provides a thoughtful analysis of some major theories and discourses about the “always on” era, while at the same time giving new insights and practical advice about the literacies we need to thrive in this environment. I’ve followed Rheingold’s posts and videos for some time now, attended presentations, and participated in some of his courses.

He’s not only an expert in virtual communities (a term he coined himself) and social media, but also teaches digital journalism. The virtual community. Ethan Zuckerman - Rewire: Rethinking Globalization in an Age of Connection. Jon, Krebs's research is really helpful stuff.

Ethan Zuckerman - Rewire: Rethinking Globalization in an Age of Connection

There's been lots of research on left/right polarization around media and US politics - I review quite a bit of it in the book. It's interesting to think about the books that he sees appealing to both left and right - some are simply very compelling and well-written, while one seems to be being bought by the right to better understand strategy from the left.

Tools for Thought: The History and Future of Mind-expanding Technology (1985) Full text South of San Francisco and north of Silicon Valley, near the place where the pines on the horizon give way to the live oaks and radiotelescopes, an unlikely subculture has been creating a new medium for human thought.


When mass-production models of present prototypes reach our homes, offices, and schools, our lives are going to change dramatically. The first of these mind-amplifying machines will be descendants of the devices now known as personal computers, but they will resemble today’s information processing technology no more than a television resembles a fifteenth-century printing press.

Haystack Group. Haystack Blog. I’ve just returned from the European Semantic Web Conference, where I gave a keynote talk on “The Semantic Web for End Users”.

Haystack Blog

My talk addressed the problem that has interested me for eighteen years: making it easier for end users to manage their information. The thesis was that The current state of tools for end users to capture, manage, and communicate their information is terrible (last week), andThe Semantic Web presents a key part of the answer to building better tools (also last week), butNot enough work is being directed toward this problem by the community (today’s post). Since I had a lot to say (217 slides) I’ve broken the summary into three separate posts aligned with these three bullets; today’s is the last. Our Story So Far.

The inside and outside of infotention work best together: Honing the mental ability to deploy the form of attention appropriate for each moment is an essential internal skill for people who want to find, direct, and manage streams of relevant information by using online media knowledgeably.Knowing how to put together intelligence dashboards, news radars, and information filters from online tools like persistent search and RSS is the external technical component of information literacy.
