Chris Anderson: How YouTube is driving innovation

How to create a good prezi – World Economic Forum Matthias Lüfkens is the man behind the social media communication of the World Economic Forum. He and his colleagues have upgraded the Forum's online presence and have made the world's most important summit on economy more transparent than ever before. They now use Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, YouTube and Myspace among other channels, involve citizen reporters and share almost every media content instantly on the web. Introducing how the WEF uses social media tools, Matthias is a keynote speaker of many events and conferences worldwide. Telling the story of going 2.0, Matthias uses Prezi, and now explains what he thinks about creating a good one. As social media architect at the World Economic Forum, you see world leaders talking about the hottest issues of the planet. The best presentations are those which do not require any text. What were the most attractive features of Prezi when you first tried it? Prezi is bringing the art of presentation to a new level.

Meta-analysis In statistics, meta-analysis comprises statistical methods for contrasting and combining results from different studies, in the hope of identifying patterns among study results, sources of disagreement among those results, or other interesting relationships that may come to light in the context of multiple studies.[1] Meta-analysis can be thought of as "conducting research about previous research." In its simplest form, meta-analysis is done by identifying a common statistical measure that is shared between studies, such as effect size or p-value, and calculating a weighted average of that common measure. This weighting is usually related to the sample sizes of the individual studies, although it can also include other factors, such as study quality. The motivation of a meta-analysis is to aggregate information in order to achieve a higher statistical power for the measure of interest, as opposed to a less precise measure derived from a single study.

Second-order cybernetics Second-order cybernetics, also known as the cybernetics of cybernetics, investigates the construction of models of cybernetic systems. It investigates cybernetics with awareness that the investigators are part of the system, and of the importance of self-referentiality, self-organizing, the subject–object problem, etc. Investigators of a system can never see how it works by standing outside it because the investigators are always engaged cybernetically with the system being observed; that is, when investigators observe a system, they affect and are affected by it. Overview[edit] The anthropologists Gregory Bateson and Margaret Mead contrasted first and second-order cybernetics with this diagram in an interview in 1973.[1] It emphasizes the requirement for a possibly constructivist participant observer in the second order case: . . . essentially your ecosystem, your organism-plus-environment, is to be considered as a single circuit.[1] See also[edit] Gyroteleostasis References[edit]

Prezi Prezi is a cloud-based (SaaS) presentation software and storytelling tool for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas.[1][2][3][4][5] The product employs a zooming user interface (ZUI), which allows users to zoom in and out of their presentation media, and allows users to display and navigate through information within a 2.5D or parallax 3D space on the Z-axis. Prezi was officially established in 2009 by co-founders Adam Somlai-Fischer, Peter Halacsy and Peter Arvai. History[edit] Prezi (or was created by the support of Kitchen Budapest and Magyar Telekom in 2008 in order to replace the ordinary slide based presentations. Today the project is assisted by Sunstone Capital. Products and features[edit] Prezi Path Tool Prezi ZUI[edit] The Prezi online and offline ZUI editors employ a common tool palette, allowing users to pan and zoom, and to size, rotate, or edit an object.

Новая институциональная теория Новая институциональная теория («неоинституционализм») — современная экономическая теория, принадлежащая к неоклассическому направлению, начало которой положила книга Рональда Коуза «Природа фирмы», вышедшая в 1937 году. Однако интерес к этой сфере проявился лишь к концу 1970-х годов в США, а затем в Европе. Сам термин был введен в научный оборот Оливером Уильямсоном. В 1997 году было основано «Международное общество по новой институциональной экономической теории». Новую институциональную теорию часто путают с институционализмом, к которому эта теория не имеет прямого отношения[1]. Основные отличия[править | править исходный текст] Неоинституционализм — яркое проявление тенденции проникновения методов микроэкономического анализа в смежные социальные дисциплины. Неоинституционализм исходит из двух общих установок. Основное внимание неоинституциональная теория уделяет анализу таких факторов как трансакционные издержки, права собственности, контрактные агентские отношения. Аузан А.

Prezi For The Win? Ten Top Tips To Make a Good One Update, May 2013: I’ve re-updated a newer guide to Prezi, actually in Prezi itself: See also: 6 useful things Prezi can which even experienced users miss The ten tips of the title are near the top of this post – it’s quite long, so don’t worry about reading the examples bit if you just want the nuts and bolts. [Update: I've also created a slide-deck which acts as a simpler version of this post - you can read and view it here. It also includes a more advanced Prezi with screen-grabs detailing how it was made.] I’ve created or had a hand in creating three Prezis that have made it into the public arena (plus some previous attempts that I’ve deleted). Incidentally, if this top 10 tips had to be just a top 1, it would be: a good Prezi is a balance between exploiting the capabilities of the medium, and ensuring these capabilities don’t become and end in themselves. Ten Top Tips Create your structure first, fill in the details afterwards. So what’s bad about this?

Затруднения и проблематика Я считаю, что создание Римского клуба, основной целью которого стало изучение и выявление нового положения, в котором оказался человек в век своей глобальной империи, явилось волнующим событием в духовной жизни человечества. Буквально с каждым часом растут наши знания о самых разных вещах; вместе с тем мы остаемся почти невежественными в том, что касается изменений в нас самих. Мы знаем, что наше путешествие в качестве Homo sapiens началось приблизительно сто тысячелетий назад, и вот уже сто веков, как ведется историческая летопись человечества. Человек не знает, как вести себя, чтобы быть по-настоящему современным человеком. А человеку, имеющему много общего со всеми другими живыми существами, не хватает лишь мудрости выжить. Диагноз этих затруднений пока неизвестен, и против них нельзя прописать эффективных лекарств; притом они усугубляются еще тесной взаимозависимостью, которая связывает ныне все в человеческой системе. 2. 3.
