Whose Journal is This, Anyway?

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/library_babel_fish_blog_header.jpg?itok=qNL3hM7KBy Barbara Fister. Last week, the editors and editorial board of Lingua, a long-established linguistics journal, resigned to found a new open access journal, Glossa.

Big Data and the Logic of Consumerism

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/library_babel_fish_blog_header.jpg?itok=qNL3hM7KBy Barbara Fister. Last month The Intercept, an online muckraking news source that was founded last year by Glenn Greenwald and others, released a trove of leaked classified documents about our drone warfare in the Middle East and Africa.

On a “Less Commercial” EDUCAUSE

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/digital_tweed_blog_header.jpgBy Kenneth C. Green. This post on Digital Tweed is a response to two of your recent Technology and Learning blog posts. The first, dated November 1st, called for a “calmer, less commercial EDUCAUSE 2016.”  The second, posted the following day (when do you sleep – or have time for your day job at Dartmouth?), was your (faux memo) response to my faux client memo titled “Partner is Not A Verb,” published by EdSurge prior to the EDUCAUSE conference and intended (primarily) for firms doing business with higher education.

If so, then perhaps you should consider the new Steve Jobs movie, based in part on the authorized Jobs biography by Walter Issacson with a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin who also wrote the screenplay for The Social Network, about Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Technology's Powers and Limits

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/law.jpgBy Tracy Mitrano. This week I remember a ten-hour neurosurgery I had in Pittsburgh on November 6, 2008. From radiology that suggested a schwanomma on my right trigeminal nerve, the doctors took an innovative endoscopic approach through my sinuses, down to the bottom of my brain where they drilled a little hole in my skull to access the top of the spinal cord and a mass of nerve ganglia.

Social Media Questions and Answers

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/student_affairs_and_technology_blog_header.jpgBy Eric Stoller. CSSA 599 sounds like the name of a new droid for the new Star Wars movie. However, CSSA 599 is a special topics class at Oregon State University. Recently, students from the class tweeted a series of questions about social media/technology and invited me to respond. Giving answers in 140 character bursts makes you be extremely concise with your responses. Read more...

Hello Is a Reintroduction

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/student_affairs_and_technology_blog_header.jpgBy Eric Stoller. Sometimes you just need to say "hello." From Apple to Adele, hello is oftentimes a reintroduction. Lately, it's been an interesting professional exercise. When work takes you to multiple countries, colleges, universities, departments, disciplines, topics, etc., the act of saying "hello" and filling in the blanks of "what is it that you do?" takes a bit more time/effort than it did when titles were familiar and employment wasn't the "self."

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/Screen%20Shot%202011-12-12%20at%2012.29.48%20PM.png?itok=ITDqfJNPBy Danielle Marias.
