Why Zuckerberg Should "Share" the Facebook Kingdom Facebook is worth $75-$100 billion. If we broke that down by user, it would mean that each individual is worth $118.34. Or, if we're looking at it in terms of revenue from 2011 - $3.71 billion - each user is worth $4.39 in revenue per user per year. Yet Zuckerberg owns 28.4% of Facebook, and holds 56.9% of the voting power. The world over is reacting to the fact that Facebook has now put a dollar value on 845 million users' personal data. Zuckerberg had something to say about it, too. Productivité - Android Market ES, 300 millions global downloads, file manager trend leader on Android!

10 Open Education Resources You May Not Know About (But Should) This week, the OCW Consortium is holding its annual meeting, celebrating 10 years of OpenCourseWare. The movement to make university-level content freely and openly available online began a decade ago, when the faculty at MIT agreed to put the materials from all 2,000 of the university’s courses on the Web. With that gesture, MIT OpenCourseWare helped launch an important educational movement, one that MIT President Susan Hockfield described in her opening remarks at yesterday’s meeting as both the child of technology and of a far more ancient academic tradition: “the tradition of the global intellectual commons.” We have looked here before at how OCW has shaped education in the last ten years, but in many ways much of the content that has been posted online remains very much “Web 1.0.”

Apple and social networks under fire over iPhone privacy Apple and social networks are under fire for distributing several social media apps through Apple’s iTunes store that harvest iPhone contact information without users’ permission. iPhone apps from social networking sites – including Twitter, Facebook, FourSquare, Instagram, Foodspotting, Path and Yelp – are reported to access the iPhone address book. In a letter to Apple, two US congressmen have called on Apple to explain why it has not blocked the apps, which violate Apple’s user guidelines. The Apple guidelines say: "Apps that read or write data outside its designated container area will be rejected." They also say: "Apps cannot transmit data about a user without obtaining the user's prior permission."

If we don’t… The Naked City, Jeremy Mann Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Table of Contents American psychologist Abraham Maslow broke new ground in psychology by putting emphasis on the best people instead of broken people. Instead of studying cars in a junk yard, he moved to a new car showroom. Prior to his time, psychology was limited to the spinal reflex theory of Sechenov (1863) and Pavlov (1927), the behaviorism of Watson (1913) and Skinner (1948). While contemporary psychology at the time was wallowing in the mud of human misery, Maslow studied the values of the best men and women in history. He asked what made people like Albert Einstein and Eleanor Roosevelt exemplary?

The Facebook Platform Kill Switch, What It Means Today Facebook officially announced the option for allowing users to completely opt-out of the Facebook Platform and prevent applications from gaining access to their information. While many developers are rightfully concerned about the feature, we’d like to take the opportunity to thoroughly address how the new “opt-out button” functions and what it will mean for developers. Prior to jumping into what the implications of the new button that lets you turn off the Facebook Platform and block all applications, we thought it would be useful to share how to block the Facebook Platform under the new configuration. this isn't happiness™ SHOP ABOUT ARCHIVE FOLLOW Instagram Twitter Facebook Google+Pinterest P L E A S E C O N S I D E R disabling AdBlock on this site, my one ad is fast, small & sophisticated.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs Maslow's hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid with the more basic needs at the bottom Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review. Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow used the terms "physiological", "safety", "belongingness" and "love", "esteem", "self-actualization", and "self-transcendence" to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow's theory was fully expressed in his 1954 book Motivation and Personality. The hierarchy remains a very popular framework in sociology research, management training and secondary and higher psychology instruction. Hierarchy
