Wikimedia Commons Il Webdoc: uno strumento didattico (2a parte) | Next Learning The next news: quali app per WebDoc. La diffusione della Rete e la possibilità di raggiungere chiunque, il coinvolgimento del pubblico con storie che possono essere raccontate, la partecipazione attiva di tutti al racconto della contemporaneità, lo sviluppo di device sempre più smart e innovativi, sono tutti fattori che hanno risentito del mutamento globale che sta nella comunicazione e nei linguaggi. Creare, condividere e scoprire che moltissimi messaggi nascono dalla combinazione di svariati canali sociali ci permette di prendere i vari contenuti presenti sui servizi, di unirli e di dare vita a delle storie documentate e interattive dotate di ogni cosa!

WeVideo Unmeasurable or immeasurable? | LibroEditing proofreading, editing, transcription, localisation This is one that came up in something I was editing a few days ago. And, I admit, one that I had to check in the dictionary. I was pretty sure the writer wanted unmeasurable (I was right), and I wasn’t sure that immeasurable was a word (I learned something, notably that SpellChecker doesn’t think it’s a word, which is why we still use dictionaries!). Unmeasurable means, specifically not able to be measured objectively. We use this one in the literal sense: “the immense lizard was unmeasurable with the tiny ruler in the standard lizard measuring kit”; “the sea trench in which the angler fish lived was of an unmeasurable depth”. Immeasurable means, a bit less specifically, I suppose, too large, extensive or extreme to measure. “I experienced immeasurable relief when I discovered that the width of the lake, filling and evaporating as it did, was actually unmeasurable.” You can find more troublesome pairs here and the index to them all so far is here.

Apple: iMovie 28 Internet acronyms every parent should know It's a declarative statement: I want sex now. If it makes you feel any better, I had no clue, and neither did a number of women I asked about it. Acronyms are widely popular across the Internet, especially on social media and texting apps, because, in some cases, they offer a shorthand for communication that is meant to be instant. So "LMK" -- let me know -- and "WYCM" -- will you call me? But the issue, especially for parents, is understanding the slang that could signal some dangerous teen behavior, such as "GNOC,'" which means "get naked on camera." And it certainly helps for a parent to know that "PIR" means parent in room, which could mean the teen wants to have a conversation about things that his or her mom and dad might not approve of.
