Toyota began adding different-sized cars to the Prius family last year, and the C is the second new model after the V. The C is designed as a small hatchback, well sized for the urban environment.

"The Network Community" An Introduction to Networks in the Global Village Barry Wellman Things Ain't Wot They Used To Be - And They Never Were! Why does a debate about whether community exists persist, when the reality of community pervades our existence? Remember the timeless British music hall lament: "Things ain't wot they used to be"?

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.
Editor’s Note : This is a milestone article that deserves careful study. Connectivism should not be con fused with constructivism. George Siemens advances a theory of learning that is consistent with the needs of the twenty first century. His theory takes into account trends in learning, the use of technology and networks, and the diminishing half-life of knowledge. It combines relevant elements of many learning theories, social structures, and technology to create a powerful theoretical construct for learning in the digital age.
