King Lear: Dramatis Personae

King Lear: Dramatis Personae | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it
King Lear
Dramatis Personae | 1.1 | 1.2

Yes, it's time once again to embark on an epic scene-by-scene, in-depth
look at a Shakespeare play. This time, ahead of the National Theater's
live broadcast of their production, starring Simon Russell Beale, and the
Stratford Festival's upcoming production, starring Colm Feore, not to
mention Michael Pennington's current production in New York, I will be
taking us through the wasteland of King Lear. 

I'll be posting a new scene from King Lear every Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday until it's done, with possible occasional interludes not involving
sad, insane old men and their vindictive, manipulative daughters, for comic
relief. Because a solid month of Lear might drive me insane. 

Onwards!

King Lear
Dramatis Personae | 1.1 | 1.2

Why Rap Creates Entrepreneurs | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it

How To Become A Better Online Researcher - Edudemic | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it
When we ‘research’ things now, we generally aren’t referring to spending time in a library – or even referring to spending time online accessing specific library or school research databases. The word ‘research’ largely refers to the act of typing words into your internet search bar and seeing what the Wise Old Web tells you. …

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it
 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis? Continue reading →
