"Let’s focus on the resulting element — the “collective intelligence”. Think about it as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described “collective intelligence” as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into “collective intelligence” far beyond what we have today."

Netsmart:How to Thrive Online: Howard Rheingold, Anthony Weeks: Books

"Like it or not, knowing how to make use of online tools without being overloaded with too much information is an essential ingredient to personal success in the twenty-first century. But how can we use digital media so that they make us empowered participants rather than passive receivers, grounded, well-rounded people rather than multitasking basket cases? In Net Smart, cyberculture expert Howard Rheingold shows us how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.

Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time. Rheingold outlines five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this: attention, participation, collaboration, critical consumption of information (or "crap detection"), and network smarts. He explains how attention works, and how we can use our attention to focus on the tiny relevant portion of the incoming tsunami of information. He describes the quality of participation that empowers the best of the bloggers, netizens, tweeters, and other online community participants; he examines how successful online collaborative enterprises contribute new knowledge to the world in new ways; and he teaches us a lesson on networks and network building."

FairSpin - Welcome! Crowd Sourced Bias Detection on breaking news? | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it


All bias judgments on FairSpin are determined by the users. When users read a story and vote on it, these votes are tabulated to determine the bias of the article. The bias judgment of an article can change in real time as users continue to vote on it.


Votes are also accumulated for the article's source and author, which enables FairSpin to form a general impression of the bias of a given publisher or writer. FairSpin uses this information to make "educated guesses" about the bias of new stories. These guesses are used simply to place new stories on the political spectrum, but are discarded as soon as real users cast their own votes for the article.
