How many friends do you have? « Paola Tubaro's Blog Pollet, T., Roberts, S., & Dunbar, R. (2011). Use of Social Network Sites and Instant Messaging Does Not Lead to Increased Offline Social Network Size, or to Emotionally Closer Relationships with Offline Network Members Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, 14 (4), 253-258 DOI: 10.1089/cyber.2010.0161 I recently happened to read this new article (access here). #Occupy movements What is the 'Occupy' movement? Is it a movement, even, or a tactic? Why are there no substantial and coherent demands, and is this an aspect itself of the desire to achieve real democracy?

Or can we trace the movement back to the Arab Spring, or further still, to Tiananmen Square?

Fantastic photomontage and its possible influences, 1857 - 2007 : a timeline ... interior frame Edgar Allen Poe 1850/6: The Works of Poe The Works of the Late Edgar Allan Poe were published in the U.S. (1850 & 1856), although sadly edited by someone who sometimes freely rewrote and recombined the stories. Poe (1809-1849) had been known in his own lifetime — but only as a critic, not as a writer of fiction. Poe's works, along with de Sade and the recovery of European folk/fairy tales, became the seeds of a sophisticated gothic imagination (there had been an unsophisticated pre-1848 literature of 'Penny Dreadfuls' and a brief British craze for horror stage shows) — which can be seen running through Stevenson's Hyde (1886), the 'L'Esprit Decadent' novels of the 1880s, James' The Turn of the Screw (1898), Ernst's collage novels, Lovecraft, Mervyn Peake, Borges, Ray Bradbury, Angela Carter, to Jan Svankmajer and beyond. ← return to index

Perlmutter Over the last two years, our department of journalism and mass communication has hired five new tenure-track faculty members. West 86th - Kafka - From the Desk of Roland Barthes Ben Kafka Ben Kafka's article will be appearing in the Vol. 18 No. 2 / Fall 2011 print edition of West 86th. This is an exclusive online preview of his forthcoming article. In this essay, the author examines a brief account by the historian Jacques Le Goff of Roland Barthes's years as an administrator in the Sixth Section of the École Pratique des Hautes Études (which eventually became the EHESS). This account provides an opportunity for a more sustained reflection on writing, paperwork, and the problem of the materiality of communication. The author argues that some recent scholarship in book history, media studies, and related fields has neglected the unconscious dimensions of communication.

Photographs Do Not Bend: contemporary photographers Archives Research: Sam Taylor Wood, Still Life (video stills), 2001 In the arts, vanitas is a type of symbolic work of art especially associated with Northern European still life in Flanders and the Netherlands in the 16th and 17th centuries though also common in other places and periods.

Social Network Wars: How The Five Major Platforms Stack Up [INFOGRAPHIC] Most people don't have the social steam to power a presence on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tumblr. Sure, there are handy apps like Twitterfeed and Hootsuite that can help spread one post to all of your networks, but that ignores the individual strengths and weaknesses of each platform. When it comes time to pick and choose where you post, this chart can help you decide what's appropriate for you. Can an algorithm be wrong? Twitter Trends, the specter of censorship, and our faith in the algorithms around us The interesting question is not whether Twitter is censoring its Trends list. The interesting question is, what do we think the Trends list is, what it represents and how it works, that we can presume to hold it accountable when we think it is “wrong?” What are these algorithms, and what do we want them to be?
