Three Stars and a Chili Pepper: Social Software, Folksonomy, and User Reviews in the College Context

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Joseph Ugoretz[Edit][Delete]: Three Stars and a Chili Pepper: Social Software, Folksonomy, and User Reviews in the College Context, Academic Commons [Edit][Delete] June 14, 2006
This is a good article. Although it begins as a review of tools that are familiar to most OLDaily readers, it moves effectively into the use of reader ratings and reviews, arguing (correctly) that these should not be viewed and understood in the same way as more 'objective' assessments. "If we try to use them without reflection, as being the same as other (objective, authoritative, traditional, edited, hierarchical, obsolete media, pick your own adjective) resources, we will be abusing them".

Reality CheckED

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Various authors[Edit][Delete]: Reality CheckED, June 14, 2006
The group Public Agenda has launched a blog titled Reality CheckED. The group is new to me, but I get the sense that they're popular, if the reference from the NSBA blog can be taken as a guide. For myself, I like the approach, and in particular the blog's use of strong, sharp and cutting logic. Like this: "If you were in the workplace and there was bad behavior all around you making it difficult to do your work, would it not be the responsibility of the company to ensure that basic workplace rules are enforced?".

Toronto at CAUCE 2006

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Stephen Downes[Edit][Delete]: Toronto at CAUCE 2006, May 29, 2006

This photo is from my most recent set, Toronto 2006. I am at the 2006 CAUCE conference in Toronto where I will be giving a talk tomorrow afternoon. Then, tomorrow evening, I will be flying overnight to Britain, where I will be at blog.ac.uk conference, where I will be wrapping up with the closing keynote. After that I will be to Milton Keynes for a talk at the Open University, then to Manchester to join in a meeting on Personal Learning Environments. I am then in Innsbruck, Austria for the Microlearning conference. Finally, I will be visiting Vienna as a guest of the Centre for Social Innovation. My thanks to Colette for all her assistance arranging this trip, one that has changed quite a bit from its original plan, and to the organizers from the different centres, who have been helpful and considerate.

Learning in Synch with Life: New Models, New Processes

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. George Siemens[Edit][Delete]: Learning in Synch with Life: New Models, New Processes, Complexive Systems [Edit][Delete] May 25, 2006
George Siemens has released a white paper created, as he says, "for Google's 2006 Training Summit." It's a nice breezy account of Connectivism, written in classic white paper style with many useful images and graphics. I am intrigued to note that it is copyrighted to "Complexive Systems Inc.," a consulting and reserach firm founded by Siemens. I will note that the last section of the paper ('Implementation') could have been dropped with no loss. Indeed, saying things like 'analysis before implementation can prevent costly errors' and 'develop the skills of learners' doesn't really advance anyone's understanding. More...

Another entry in the personal aggregator sweepstakes, this application again looks like the way an e-portfolio should look, more or less (I sent a bunch of suggestions to the designers). Meanwhile, Michael Feldstein says the same of another service called Tabblo. Meanwhile, as Seb reports in his latest newsletter, EDUCAUSE has a nice RSS aggregator. More...

eLIVE 2006... Live

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Will Richardson[Edit][Delete]: eLIVE 2006... Live, Weblogg-Ed [Edit][Delete]Weblogg-ed [Edit][Delete] May 24, 2006
Summary of a talk by Alan November at eLIVE 2006. Some interesting points, but I really think the point of view is skewed. Here's a quote: "What is the problem? The problem is not technology or teaching children technology. The problem is that India is ramping up in technology and education, online learning. China outstrips the US by the year 2050." These are not problems. These are enormous opportunities, not to mention a long overdue balancing of wealth and resources worldwide. More...

Student TV Finds Home on Web

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Unattributed[Edit][Delete]: Student TV Finds Home on Web, ESchool News [Edit][Delete] May 24, 2006
Innovative: "Student-produced shows across the country might have gotten their big break.... The Open Student Television Network (OSTN) launched in April 2005, and it has signed up a wide array of schools in the past few months: the network now claims 30 member schools, with access at 208 institutions." the idea is to provide a distribution channel for student productions. "The launch of these broadband channels parallels an explosion of amateur TV and film content on the web, fueled by the ever-dropping cost of producing a professional-looking product". More...

Everybody's a Network

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Jeff Jarvis[Edit][Delete]: Everybody's a Network, BuzzMachine [Edit][Delete] May 24, 2006
Question of the day: "what if media isn't a business anymore? What if it becomes like poetry -" lots of people do it, but nobody ever expects to make any money from it." Or, what if education isn't a business anymore - people share what they know as part of their day-to-day routine or part of the job, everybody does a little, and nobody makes any money? "The smart network response to all this is to liquify. You let your stuff be found anywhere, in any medium and any network. More...

Making Money Selling Music Without DRM: The Rise of eMusic

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Nate Anderson[Edit][Delete]: Making Money Selling Music Without DRM: The Rise of eMusic, Ars Technica [Edit][Delete] May 23, 2006
Interesting article about a site that is making money selling independent music by subscription in MP3 format - with no digital rights management (DRM) at all. The major lables, of course, cannot fathom how such a business could make money, but eMusic is the number two retailer of downloadable music behind the iTunes Music Store. Also worth noting is that the company decided "to hire several distinguished music critics to serve as 'curators' for the site." This is the beginning of the newsmastering rend. More...
