An infographic takes a look at the evolution of the music player over its first decade.I’ll never forget my first iPod. I’d had a portable CD player and even the first portable MP3 player, the Diamond Rio, but the iPod was a revelation. For the first time, I could have my entire music collection at my fingertips without having to fumble to change CDs. With the passing of Steve Jobs recently, it makes sense to take a look back at the device that helped bring about Apple’s incredible renaissance in the first decade of the 21st century.
Grace Johnson - Tumblr My first attempt at TweetChat could probably be compared to my first day here at Newhouse: scary and overwhelming. The first issue I found was how unorganized it seemed to be. I understand that there is a moderator available to facilitate the flow of conversation, but at around 20+ people, the moderator became ineffective. My computer continuously flooded with ten to fifteen new tweets at once to answer people’s questions about Klout. I found myself struggling to follow one string of questions to another, and was even too overwhelmed to ask one myself. By the time I thought of question number four, the group was on question ten.

Ammy Sriyunyongwat - Tumblr 5:59 pm - Fri, Dec 9, 2011 Pinteresting I joined forces with classmates Jackie and Kiersten to tackle the fun topic of photo sharing for the teaching presentation project in our Social Media Theory & Practice class. Here’s a brief summary of what we presented. We started on a silly note by showing pictures of celebrities from their Twitter accounts, to emphasize the impact of photo sharing in today’s culture. Then we described the photo sharing landscape as a whole, along with upcoming trends.
Chey Contiguglia Diving for Pearls This weeks discussion topic in NewhouseSM6 via DR4ward at www.dr4ward.com, was about Pearltrees, the website is www.pearltrees,com if anyone wishes to make an account. I signed up for a Pearltree account and created a Pearltree for the class, check it out here: I am still trying to figure out how exactly to use this site, even though I used the help pearl and a blog, www.blog.pearltrees.com, recommended by a classmate. I don’t exactly understand the need for it other than to keep all the things you are interested in, in one place. Hopefully as I begin to understand it more I will come to use it.
Brian Moritz How we made #SocialMediaCuration Here’s the story of how our Social Media Curation presentation came together. Lu and I, in talking about our interests, quickly realized that we wanted to focus on Social Media Curation start-ups. That was a good combination of our interests - Lu in start-ups, me in curation. We did a lot of the work in Google Docs - we had a master file where we kept our notes, outlines, next steps, etc. Laura Miley - Tumblr So many ways to tweet, but so little time. If I’m going to use a platform for Twitter, I will most likely use only one of those listed below. While each offer something unique with more features than your average Twitter page, I’m looking to find my main go-to platform. Here are my thoughts on which are and are not worth my precious tweeting time:
