These days news and information is being distributed and discussed on a range of platforms – places like Twitter, Facebook, RSS readers, YouTube, blogs and websites. However, the stories and issues at the heart of those various bits of content are much bigger than the sum of its parts. Scoble’s post was called “The Seven Needs of Real Time Curators” and he described it as “a guide for how we can build ‘info molecules’ that have a lot more value than the atomic world we live in now.” “First, what are info atoms? I’m not going to go through his seven points. Slices of Boulder I first wrote about Slices of Boulder here, before the actual site had launched, and at the time I described it as more of a mapping effort than a curation effort.

First Look at the iPad for eLearning | TOPYX Learning Management System At Interactyx, we’re always looking to enhance eLearning software and mobile learning (mLearning). So, today I thought would be an appropriate time to review the newly announced iPad to see if we think it will become a significant tool in the corporate and academic eLearning world. The iPad upon first blush certainly appears to be a compelling device. Before I go over thoughts about applicability to the eLearning and mLearning world, let’s quickly review some facts from the iPad announcement. Its OS is based upon the iPhone OS, and naturally is using Safari as its browser. Material and apps built for iPhone will apparently function just fine on the iPad, however the IPad SDK will also take advantage of additional features, so there may be a reason to modify existing apps. So what about iPad for eLearning Users will easily be able to view or listen to that material to their hearts content, and I expect that’s probably the sweet spot for the device. However the iPad does not support Flash.

10 cool Twitter visualisation tools You might think of Twitter as a way to chat with your friends, keep up with news or to hassle minor celebrities. We think of it as a ceaseless stream of data that only really becomes useful when you filter and sort it. Here are 10 tools for doing just that, with a twist. They take your tweets and turn them into animations, graphs and glyphs for your visual delectation. They're Twitter visualisers, the best the web has to offer. 1. Enter any Twitter account name in TweepsKey and you'll get a visual representation of their follower's activity. 2. One among a number of apps from developer Jeff Clark at Neoformix, StreamGraphs is a keyword visualiser. 3. ISParade is a Japanese slice of digital lunacy which went viral about a month back. 4. Putting the twee back into tweet, Tori's Eye converts Twitter output into origami birds flying over a crafty landscape. 5. Getting a bit serious again, Revisit displays a timeline of tweets based on Twitter's search syntax. 6. 7. 8. Visible Tweets. 9. 10.

QR Code on a Business Card but how? Comment QR Code on a Business Card but how? (Added: January 18th, 2010 QR Coded LinkedIn profile with tracking on your business card). (Added: January 13th, 2010 Since I wrote this post Viscards seems to have ceased operation). (Added: May 3rd, 2009 I am now using my new and very different Web 2.0 business card to great effect). How many different ways can you think of to get a working QR Code on your business card? Here are two to start the ball rolling and when you think of others please add them in a comment. First, the way that MT Digital’s Viscards would have you do it. 1. Quite straight forward and once you have signed up you can go back and change the contact information (if you change jobs for example) and still use the same QR Code. A second method using a drop. 1. If you change jobs then you just create and upload a new .vcf file Here is an example of one I produced on and one on Viscards both for The President. inShare1
