The personal research portal: web 2.0 driven individual commitment with open access

We here propose the concept of the Personal Research Portal (PRP) – a mesh of social software applications to manage knowledge acquisition and diffusion – as a means to create a digital identity for the researcher – tied to their digital public notebook and personal repository – and a virtual network of colleagues working in the same field. Complementary to formal publishing or taking part in congresses, and based on the concept of the e-portfolio, the PRP is a knowledge management system that enhances reading, storing and creating at both the private and public levels. Relying heavily on Web 2.0 applications – easy to use, freely available – the PRP automatically implies a public exposure and a digital presence that enables conversations and network weaving without time and space boundaries.

Introduction

In a Knowledge Society, the main problem knowledge workersi have is invisibility: if people don’t know that you know, and people are not aware of what you know, you are not. In a Network Society, the main problem that nodes have is being kicked off the network: you are worth what you contribute, if you don’t contribute, you are not worth a dime.

Digital technologies have forever changed the way knowledge is disseminated and accessed, in at least two crucial ways. First, diffusion procedures (publishing, broadcasting, etc.) have been getting infinitely easier and cheaper for those digitally initiated (the ‘digerati’), but still remain surprisingly arcane for the ones on the dark side of the digital divide, less digitally literate and, thus, less prone to benefit from all the advantages of ‘online casting’. Second, intellectual property rights – and their trade – have seen their basements dynamited by the fact that a digital copy has certain characteristics of a public good insofar as it is a copy and as such can be duplicated and disseminated. Under this approach, the tension between ‘coffee for all’ and private property has caused an increasing strengthening of copyrights with a parallel adoption of new licenses aimed for the maximum spreading and sharing of content.

Klout scores feed a social media sickness

Klout scores feed a social media sickness | Academic Library Instruction | Scoop.it

Mark Schaefer (@markwschaefer) writes:

 

Want to REALLY increase your social influence?

 

Here’s how.

 

- Surround yourself with people who care about you.*

 

- Do good work.

 

- Be kind and helpful.

 

Just do those three things and the influence — the influence that matters — will take care of itself.

 

[AS: *The first point one sounds a little like 'lock yourself in the echo chamber with the sycophants', but I'm sure that isn't what Mark intended. I'm therefore glossing this as 'Surround yourself with positive people who are making a difference and are committed to change for the better, just like you are.'
