How Did Howard Rheingold Get So “Net Smart”: An Interview (Part One)

How Did Howard Rheingold Get So “Net Smart”: An Interview (Part One) | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

By Henry Jenkins


Howard Rheingold has been one of the smartest, most forward thinking, most provocative writers about digital culture for the past several decades. He’s someone who always makes me think. Even a short hall way chat with Howard at a conference can lead to transformative insights about how we live within a networked culture. I have been lucky to know him for more than two decades now, and I treasure every interaction I’ve ever had with the guy.

How Can I Organize My RSS Feeds So They’re More Manageable?

How Can I Organize My RSS Feeds So They’re More Manageable? | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

"Creating your own filters: You have several options to create filters of your own on any site. Here are a few:

 

Take a look at previously mentioned FeedRinse, which filters out posts for your individual subscriptions by keyword, tag, author, and even profanity.

 

Another option, if you're a Chrome and Google Reader user, is the Google Reader Filter by Feed/Folder userscript. This adds a filtering box above your feeds to weed out words for an individual subscription or an entire folder.


Probably the most robust RSS feed hacking tool is much-discussed Yahoo Pipes, which combines many feeds into one sortable, filterable, and translatable feed (see how to use it here)."

The World Is Open: How Web Technology Is Revolutionizing Education - Curtis J. Bonk | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

If this book could be shortened to its narrowest point, it would exist as a one line proclamation that states, "Anyone can now learn anything from anyone at anytime."

 

Research conducted: This book is the product of more than two decades of research on e-learning, blended learning, and technology in education to support this project (including YouTube, wikis, collaborative technologies, simulations and gaming, and online language learning). Dr. Bonk interviewed dozens of business leaders and educators for this book, including the presidents/chairmen of Livemocha, Chinswing, Textbook Revolution, Wikipedia, Sun Microsystems, Scribd, and Chinesepod. He features companies like IBM, Deloitte, Microsoft, Linden Labs, Google, NetLibrary, Facebook, Stumble-Upon, the University of Phoenix, Jones International University, and FriendsAbroad as well as non-profit and government organizations like the British Library, the Internet Archive, the Michigan State University Confucius Institute, the Department of Defense, the WikiMedia Foundation, and the African Virtual University.

Managing Collective Intelligence-If you think knowledge is power, you aren’t living in the real world.

Managing Collective Intelligence-If you think knowledge is power, you aren’t living in the real world. | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

[...] Chapter 9A live experiment in collective intelligence!


If you think knowledge is power, you aren’t living in the real world. Knowledge changes so fast that if you try to hold onto it, you end up with nothing. To get power, it is much more effective to share knowledge and thus build the basis for a reputation.If people think you have key strategic knowledge, you will have power within the organization.


Richard McDermott, President of McDermott Consulting (From "Lagestion du savoir", proceedings of the November 2003 colloquium organized byCEFRIO:http://www.cefrio.qc.ca/pdf/ActesGestionDuSavoir.pdf )

 

This quote describes a common-sense reality that unfortunately not everyone understands. But we can implement this idea here and now, creating the basis for a collective reputation! Chapter 9 of thisbook will thus be open to everyone and co-authored. Here, the book becomes interactive, written by readers and by the author. [...]

The Critical Pastafarian: Evaluation by Authority in a Web 2.0 World

The Critical Pastafarian:  Evaluation by Authority in a Web 2.0 World | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Authority for local history searches is a challenge for the public librarian. Which resource is more authoritative: the scholarly document citing a litany of government and academic resources, or the sincere first-person account? Does it matter if a community trusts the views and opinions of the latter more than the former?


If it does matter, how does that situation differ from a seasoned historian preferring the former? And what is my role as a librarian in understanding authority in this realm?
