Pittsburgh, PA – I’ve landed in the unfamiliar nation of U.S. progressive politics, specifically its online army. Netroots Nation is the reincarnation of YearlyKos, which was the conference that grew out of the Daily Kos . I’m on a panel called Democracy Without Newspapers , with many* people who have been thinking and speaking about this stuff much longer than I have.
We journalism/new media nerds like to think of ourselves as being pretty open, but we can be a bit clannish at times: We close ranks to defend a few core principles, we have our own hierarchy of gurus and we use our own set of words and phrases. When I dove into the future-of-journalism world, I quickly found that a few of these phrases function as shorthand for big, fundamental ideas. They often get traded without explanation and sometimes without links, leaving the uninitiated pretty confused and possibly a little turned off, too.
Below you will see my 13 Ways (and 147 Tools) to Help Your Library Save Money on Technology. These are my favorite options for libraries to use as alternatives to the expensive paid services and software that we use now, usually because our parent organizations or IT departments have gone along with the mainstream, bought the expensive stuff from the well-known companies, and never blinked.
As I wrote in a post here back in May, the sphere of control you have over your digital assets (on the left) is impacted by the degrees of interaction you and your content are likely to have in social networks and as the content is exposed to social consumption (on the right).

In a newspaper, the most important story is featured on the front page. If it's a really important piece, then it's placed " above the fold ," which means you can find it on the top half of the first page — the bottom half is folded behind and isn't readily seen when you first look at the newspaper.
During the last two years, we have been working on ThisIsLike.Com – the associative knowledge network that allows you to find people, places, things, and events that are "like" each other (similar or related). It started as an add-on to enhance the already existing travel guide waytorussia.net – so that we could recommend people the clubs, cafes, restaurants that are similar to each other. However, it soon grew into a project on its own, encompassing a larger scope of information – from artists and galleries to city areas and philosophers. In a way, it's like Last.Fm but for everything else, not only music, and it's not based on the actual acts of purchasing or consuming to create a recommendation – but a pure associative link. ThisIsLike nowadays is an educational resource where the new kind of knowledge is realized, based on the connection, relationship between items, rather than items themselves (although they also play an important role to help people navigate through ideas).
