Google gaat de Google Reader service, een rss feedreader, stopzetten. Nu is Feedly een uitstekende vervanger, maar ook MultiPLX lijkt een goed alternatief. Het design heeft veel weg van Pinterest. Toch denk ik niet dat ik mijn Feedly account snel zal opgeven.

Evolution of emotions on networks leads to the evolution of cooperation in social dilemmas

We show that the resolution of social dilemmas on random graphs and scale-free networks is facilitated by imitating not the strategy of better performing players but rather their emotions. We assume sympathy and envy as the two emotions that determine the strategy of each player by any given interaction, and we define them as probabilities to cooperate with players having a lower and higher payoff, respectively. Starting with a population where all possible combinations of the two emotions are available, the evolutionary process leads to a spontaneous fixation to a single emotional profile that is eventually adopted by all players. However, this emotional profile depends not only on the payoffs but also on the heterogeneity of the interaction network. Homogeneous networks, such as lattices and regular random graphs, lead to fixations that are characterized by high sympathy and high envy, while heterogeneous networks lead to low or modest sympathy but also low envy. Our results thus suggest that public emotions and the propensity to cooperate at large depend, and are in fact determined by the properties of the interaction network.

Curation: The Future of News Is All About Separating Junk From Gems

Robin Good's curator insight, April 1, 2013 11:39 AM


At the start of 2012 Steve Rubel, EVP of Edelman, published a very interesting slide deck entitled "Insights on the Future of Media" - Volume 1.


In it he analized five key trends that had emerged from his numerous talks with CEOs, startup founders, technology vendors and reporters about what would be the key, most important best practices to emerge in the near future.

The first such practice analyzed in his presentation is "news curation" under the heading "Curate to Dominate.


Steve Rubel writes: "...what I discovered is that vertical curators like SBN may soon play a larger role in how we consume content than many of us may realize.


This has ramifications for both journalists and communicators.


Sports is one of the largest and oldest online interest verticals.The category is dominated by large brands - sites like ESPN.com and Yahoo Sports, which rose to prominence during the 1990s.


Suddenly, however, the edges are fraying.


First, athletes and teams are becoming their own media channels. Beyond that, new curators are moving in and disrupting the business. SBN, for example, rolls up the best independent blog voices covering individual teams into a carefully curated network.


The Bleacher Report, meanwhile, takes a more open, crowd- Jim Bansourced approach. Today its the 12th largest sports site, koff, Vox Media according to comScore.


Both SBN and Bleacher Report are demonstrating that there's a huge opportunity for new media brands to emerge that focus on separating art from junk.


This is all a result of too much content and not enough time."


And if you are asking what's the future of a curator as a paid resource or as a business per se, here is his answer:


"...what about breaking news, which is more of a commodity these days? Can a curator win in news too?


According to the 3.3 million people who follow the MSNBC- owned @breakingnews account on Twitter - the sub-140-character answer is "yes."


That's where we pick up the story. To learn more, I sought out fellow Hofstra University alum Lauren McCullough. She recently joined @breakingnews from AP as a Senior Editor.


...MSNBC has turned it into a 24/7 news operation that curates links faster than anyone else."


Find more valuable insight, names and brands already "walking the talk" on slides 4, 5 and 6 of this very interesting deck  (Insights on the Future of Media - Volume 1, January 2012).

Jesse Soininen's insight:

"Listening as one of the ways we attend to the whole, requires admitting that we all construct our world through self-designed lenses. By doing so, we participate in creating the very world we seem to observe only as a given. Conscious communication processes that foster inclusion enable this process of co-creation to become transparent, and in this very process, mutual understanding and respect increase."

What Happens to Social Media After a Twitter Revolution?

What Happens to Social Media After a Twitter Revolution? | Content in Context | Scoop.it

"Two years after the Arab Spring, questions still remain as to how much social media actually helped fuel and drive the uprisings that arose in Tunisia and swept across the region. But regardless of what happened during those Twitter-fueled revolutions, what's happened afterward?

That's what social media analytics firm Crimson Hexagon and Sanitas International wanted to find out when it decided to analyze tweets coming out of Egypt, Libya and even Syria, where there still is a war going on. The results of its 3-month study, which will be discussed in a panel at SXSW on Sunday, underscore the changes these countries are undergoing."

"Twitter Revolution" is the unfortunate generalization foisted on the world by headline writers. The realities of social upheavals and political revolutions is more complex than that, and while sociologists such as Zynep Tufekci are sorting out the complex role of social media in physical world events, others are documenting the role of social-media in post-revolutionary societies.

The Internet of Everything (According to CISCO) | Content in Context | Scoop.it

CISCO jumps in with both feet into the Internet of Things with a new marketing campaign.  In a clever move, they have taken ownership of a new phase "The Internet of Everything" worthy of its own acronym (IoE).  A large press and advertising push is going out now to connect businesses with a specialist who can "ensure you are prepared."

 

In the video (http://www.cisco.com/web/tomorrow-starts-here/anthem/index.html) a narrator talks about the world "waking up" and in a reassuring voice describes all the profitable business applications of a Global Brain powered by CISCO.

How to Attract the Right People to Your Life

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 18, 2013 11:18 AM

In the business world, there’s a temptation to shout our strengths from the rooftops and hide our weaknesses, says Hagel – but that puffery doesn’t help us in the long run. “There’s a need to share your vulnerability – to share a gnarly problem, to engage [the other person], to invite them to rise up and draw out the things deep within them,” he says. “How do we learn to trust each other? It’s being able to show you’re human and you also have issues you’re grappling with.” But being vulnerable doesn’t mean you should immediately start blabbing about your recent breakup. Instead, you should focus on interesting professional challenges with your new business contacts. “The art is being able to frame the problem in a way that makes it exciting and interesting,” says Hagel. “It’s not about ‘Oh, a horrible thing just happened to me,’ but ‘Wow, imagine if we could figure this out.’

Complexity by Subtraction

The eye and brain: standard thinking is that these devices are both complex and functional. They are complex in the sense of having many different types of parts, and functional in the sense of having capacities that promote survival and reproduction. Standard thinking says that the evolution of complex functionality proceeds by the addition of new parts, and that this build-up of complexity is driven by selection, by the functional advantages of complex design. The standard thinking could be right, even in general. But alternatives have not been much discussed or investigated, and the possibility remains open that other routes may not only exist but may be the norm. Our purpose here is to introduce a new route to functional complexity, a route in which complexity starts high, rising perhaps on account of the spontaneous tendency for parts to differentiate. Then, driven by selection for effective and efficient function, complexity decreases over time. Eventually, the result is a system that is highly functional and retains considerable residual complexity, enough to impress us. We try to raise this alternative route to the level of plausibility as a general mechanism in evolution by describing two cases, one from a computational model and one from the history of life.

Understanding personal learning networks: Their structure, content and the networking skills to optimally use them

Understanding personal learning networks: Their structure, content and the networking skills to optimally use them | Content in Context | Scoop.it

Networking is a key skill in professional careers, supporting the individual’s growth and learning. However, little is known about how professionals intentionally manage the connections in their personal networks and which factors influence their decisions in connecting with others for the purpose of learning. In this article, we present a model of personal professional networking for creating a personal learning network, based on an investigation through a literature study, semi–structured interviews and a survey.
