7 Must-Read Books on the Future of Information, The Web & its Impact on Our Lives

7 Must-Read Books on the Future of Information, The Web & its Impact on Our Lives | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

I selected this post from Maria Popova, who never fails to produce the best content and information on her blog brainpickings It's always thought provoking and challenging and today is no exception.

 

My commentary:

 

**The future is upon us and excelerating at a rapid pace, knowledge is power......

 

**These books suggested are timely and relevant and can be helpful to all of us who curate, create, consume and share content and information on the web.

 

**These books examine the networked society, the sharing of information and interpretation and its impact on our thinking, our minds and our future.

 

**How will the sharing economy impact collaboration and innovation

 

**How will you participate in all of this?

 

"From retrofuturist media prophecies to the cognitive consequences of mobile-everything".

 

Here's an intro which will tell you what you can expect from this article.

 

We’re deeply fascinated by the evolution of media and the sociocognitive adaptations that go along with it,

 

**but perhaps even more so by the intellectual debates surrounding this ever-swelling topic of increasing urgency and controversy.

 

The past year has been particularly prolific in varied takes on our shared digital future, contextualizing

 

**our current concerns in fascinating media history and exploring the potential consequences of our modern media diets.

 

Collected here are 7 of our favorite books investigating the subject from dramatically different yet equally important angles.

 

Curated by Jan Gordon covering "Content Curation, Social Business and Beyond

It does seem so indeed. That would be so nice to meet you in Maryland and have soft shell crabs, perhaps some day soon:-)

That would be a good experience and we would certainly have a lot to talk about. I would like that.

Google’s Art Project Grows Larger With 151 Museums Online Across 40 Countries

Google’s Art Project Grows Larger With 151 Museums Online Across 40 Countries | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Google has announced that Google Art Project  - http://bit.ly/HcWigt , where art lovers, students and armchair travellers can explore the visually creative world, has seen a major expansion.

 

Now culture fans will be able to explore sculpture, street art and photographs from 151 Museums - http://bit.ly/HIC3SX in 40 Countries  -  http://bit.ly/HICzAb.

 

A deeper appreciation

Using completely new tools, called Explore and Discover, you can find artworks by period, artist or type of artwork, displaying works from different museums around the world.

 

Google+ and Hangouts are integrated on the site, so that users can create personal galleries and an enhanced ‘My Gallery’ feature allows visitors to select any of the 30,000 artworks—along with favourite details to build a very personalised experience.

 

Up close and personal

The Google Art Project now has 46 artworks available with “gigapixel” photo capturing technology, photographed in extraordinary detail using super high resolution.

 

Though purists will still want to seek out the atmosphere and smells of a location in which to enjoy their art experience, the Art Project is simple-to-use and fascinating to explore, not just for the works themselves, but also the unique way in which they have been presented.

 

Superb!

We believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't.

A team within our Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.

Follow along with us at http://g.co/projectglass as we share some of our ideas and stories. We'd love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?

Information Forensics: Five Case Studies on How to Verify Crowdsourced Information from Social Media | Truthiness in Digital Media

"False information can cost lives. But no information can also cost lives, especially in a crisis zone. Indeed, information is perishable so the potential value of information must be weighed against the urgency of the situation. Correct information that arrives too late is useless. Crowdsourced information can provide rapid situational awareness, especially when added to a live crisis map. But information in the social media space may not be reliable or immediately verifiable. This may explain why humanitarian (and news) organizations are often reluctant to leverage crowdsourced crisis maps. Many believe that verifying crowdsourced information is either too challenging or impossible.The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that concrete strategies do exist for the verification of geo-referenced crowdsourced social media information.The study first provides a brief introduction to crisis mapping and argues that crowdsourcing is simply non-probability sampling.Next, five case studies comprising various efforts to verify social media are analyzed to demonstrate how different verification strategies work."

"Each district should create a Questioning Toolkit which contains several dozen kinds of questions and questioning tools. This Questioning Toolkit should be printed in large type on posters which reside on classroom walls close by networked, information-rich computers.

Portions of the Questioning Toolkit should be introduced as early as Kindergarten so that students can bring powerful questioning technologies and techniques with them as they arrive in high school..."
