Identity 2.0: We Must Federate and Cooperate

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Boris Mann[Edit][Delete]: Identity 2.0: We Must Federate and Cooperate, B.Mann Consulting [Edit][Delete] February 24, 2006

A general observation I have. People who have sites or destinations - things they want people to come to - want to federate. People who are more interested in what other people have to offer, and not focused on their own site or service, want something much more open, not just a federation but a democracy, where anyone can proclaim their identity. We hear a lot from the service providers. More...

In Defense of Walled Gardens

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Michael Feldstein[Edit][Delete]: In Defense of Walled Gardens, E-Literate [Edit][Delete] February 24, 2006

After an Orwellian opening, Michael Feldstein gets down to it in defense of walls. First, "Sometimes privacy is appropriate... If you want your students to take risks, you have to create an environment that is safe for them to do so."

And second, "faculty should have the ability to use copyrighted material legally with their classes at their discretion." Maybe, but this special case should not be allowed to define the general case (it would be equally absurd to say that because some people want to lock their front doors we ought to install locks and gates on freeway entrances).

10 Brain Things...and One Reminder that People are the Curriculum!

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Christian Long[Edit][Delete]: 10 Brain Things...and One Reminder that People are the Curriculum!, think:lab [Edit][Delete] February 11, 2006

[link: 4 Hits] Eleven posts - some of which have been seen before in these pages - juxtaposed under the heading of 'brain things'. An interesting gestalt. "See the 'box' even though there are only a few line segments. Your eye does the rest. The Greeks offered constellations, night star 'stories'. And patterns are truths (again, my opinon) much as the "medium is the message" (thank you, Marshall)." No, patterns are not truth - patterns are perception, how we see the world. I am a specialist in pattern recognition, and I am aware more than most (perhaps) that when our mind leaps into some sort of recognition of what it 'sees' there remains considerable room for error.
