Online media offer examples at phenomenal scale and diversity. How can we leverage them? Engelbart: Augmenting Human Intellect (1962) These hypotheses imply great richness in the new evolutionary spaces opened by progressing from Stage 3 to Stage 4. We would like to study the hypotheses further, examining their possible manifestations in our experience, ways of demonstrating their validity, and possible deductions relative to going to Stage 4.

In search of some simple ways to determine what the Neo-Whorfian hypothesis might imply, we could imagine some relatively straightforward means of increasing our external symbol-manipulation capability and try to picture the consequent changes that could evolve in our language and methods of thinking. Actually, it turned out to be simpler to invert the problem and consider a change that would reduce our capability for external symbol manipulation. This allowed an empirical approach which proved both simple and effective. We thus performed the following experiment. Jan05_01. Editor’s Note: This is a milestone article that deserves careful study.

But also a lot of issues to be worked out. The Power of Crowd and Place: A Conversation with Jeff Kirchick from SCVNGR. Jeff Kirchick is the Universities and Schools Specialist for SCVNGR, a gaming platform about doing challenges at places. I first met Jeff at the CASE Social Media Conference in San Francisco where he was organizing a “trek” for the conference. It was the most fun I’d had participating in extra-curricular activities at a conference. I asked Jeff to talk a little about how SCVNGR uses the power of “the crowd and place.” How to Adopt a Social Media Lifestyle. While most small business owners are starting to realize that social media is a necessary part of any marketing strategy, as a social media coach, the question I get most often is how to add social media to a day that is already way too full.

For those of us working as solopreneurs or small business owners, it may, at times, feel like we are working virtually around the clock so when are we really supposed to tweet, post or blog? I’ll admit creating a social media plan that will stick is like starting an exercise program. You just have to take that leap and do it.

Howard rheingold's. Mindful Infotention: Dashboards, Radars, Filters. Infotention is a word I came up with to describe the psycho-social-techno skill/tools we all need to find our way online today, a mind-machine combination of brain-powered attention skills with computer-powered information filters.

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. Knowing what to pay attention to is a cognitive skill that steers and focuses the technical knowledge of how to find information worth your attention. The overall system I’m seeking to understand is one of mindful infotention. Twitter Literacy (I refuse to make up a Twittery name for it) Post-Oprah and apres-Ashton, Twittermania is definitely sliding down the backlash slope of the hype cycle. It’s not just the predictable wave of naysaying after the predictable waves of sliced-breadism and bandwagon-chasing.

Public sphere is a concept created in the 18th century and further developed by Jürgen Habermas, who stated that the public sphere was characterized by it’s critical nature in contraposition to the representative nature of the feudal system (Boeder, P., 2005).

According to Hauser (Hauser, G., 1988), it is a discursive place where people can interchange their opinions to create a common judgment. Critical to Restoring Voter Confidence by Christopher Tillman Neal. Elections grant citizens the ability to pick their representatives and convey their preferences for how they will be governed. Naturally, the integrity of the election system is fundamental to the integrity of democracy itself. The election systems must be adequately built to withstand an assortment of fraudulent behaviors and must be adequately clear and comprehensible that voters, as well as candidates, can acquire the results of an election.
