Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy

Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
ghbrett's insight:

Robin Good shares a new Cloud Service with us in this scoop. Have a read of his comments below. They are very helpful. Thanks Robin, once again.

 

One question I do have is what is the sustainability or business models of these services. It's hard enough to keep up with local storage equipment and standards, or connectors  (e.g., Firewire, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB TNG, Apple Lightning, SATA, etc., etc.,) How will we keep up with the technology? How will we know where we put that important file? This why curation, maintenance, and digital archive management are becoming much more important.

Robin Good's curator insight, March 28, 2013 2:51 PM



Copy is a cloud-based service which allows anyone to easily upload, store and share any kind of file, while keeping in sync your different devices. Copy comes also with desktop versions for Mac, Windows and Linux as well as iOS and Android mobile versions.


"Once uploaded, Copy generates a unique URL for the file that you can copy and send to the intended recipients over email, social media networks or IM. On the receiving end, the user just needs to open that URL in their web browser and click the Download button to download the file to their PC, smartphone or tablet.


While you can use Copy’s file sharing features without creating any account, registering for one rewards you with a few additional privileges like 5GB of cloud storage and file synchronization straight from desktop or mobile, depending on which platform you use it. An account can be created both from the web interface and from within the service’s desktop or mobile apps."


Copy provides you ith 5GB of inital free storage space, which gets bumped up to 10GB as soon as you install a desktop or mobile version.


"You can share files without even creating any user account that most other similar services often require."


"Copy also keeps past versions of your files so that if you accidentally lose or change something, you can get it back. The Android app of the service comes with PhotoCopy – a feature that automatically uploads your photos to the cloud similar to Dropbox, SugarSync and Google+’s offering."


(Source: Addictivetips.com)



For up to 5GB and more free to use.

I find this MOST interesting.  Thanks Robin.  Cloud storage has become more interesting to me because I work on a laptop with a HD that is pretty well maxed-out for now.  I've used Dropbox for years and am up to about 11 G right now because I've had some referrals.  But I think it's always good to have some more storage.

Why Curation Will Transform Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons

Why Curation Will Transform Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it
"This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught, how textbooks are put together, how students are going to learn about a subject, and more than anything, the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

If we learn not by memorizing facts, but by collaborating with others in the creation of a meaningful collection-explanations of specific topics/issues/events then, for the first time in history, we can enrich planetary knowledge each time we take on a new learning task." -- from source: http://www.masternewmedia.org/
ghbrett's insight:

As we produce more content and multimedia, who is going to clean up after us? Since we have endless storage on site and in many "clouds," there is less need to prune or delete data than ever before. This reviewer remembers having a disk with 26KB storage which needed to be used attentively. This article is one of the better of the emerging topic and related processes of Curating our stuff. Often the metaphor of one's Digital Footprints is raised as a way of describing all the different services, systems, machines, archives, etc., etc. that our stuff is. Oh, and then there are the other pack rats who have copied our stuff and put it into their stashes. Folks, it's time to take a moment to reflect on what we are doing with content, media, and stuff. Then curate by pruning, updating, aggregating, and other such digital stewardship. Finally, as my Father always said, "Don't do as I do, please do what I say." (grin)

Digital Preservation in a Box | A product of the National Digital Stewardship Alliance

"Welcome to Digital Preservation in a Box. DPB is a product of the National Digital Stewardship Alliance’s Outreach Working Group and is designed as a toolkit to support outreach activities that introduce the basic concepts of preserving digital information. The DPB provides the best available resources and tools to help you communicate digital preservation and stewardship concepts and issues.

 

The materials are geared towards a general audience who routinely create or manage digital information, but who may need a working knowledge of this area for digital preservation on the job or for training others on how to preserve digital resources.

 

The materials can be appropriately used to communicate to professional audiences or to students of all ages." -- from the Source "National Digital Stewardship Alliance"

 

NOTE: My Re-Scoop.it for Digital Curation: A Comprehensive Resource Guide from R. Good's Scoop.it has generated a lot of interest. This is one of the referenced sites in the Guide from the National Digital Stewardship Alliance. I like this resource because as they say it is "geared towards a general audience." But it is applicable for professional audiences as well as "students of all age."

 

Well worth Reading!

Curation and reblogging

Curation and reblogging | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"While both can lead consumers on a unexpected journey, chasing the white rabbit into previously unexplored corners of the web, [a Curator] actually helps sift through the media abyss, singling out worthwhile information, and often “adding value” by lending context through their own ideas and opinions. The former are rebloggers."

 

Great pick by Robin Good where writer Chris DeLine goes through the recent attacks on Tumblr to actually paint an interesting picture of Curation as something "not entirely different than Creation."

 

Reading this article took me back to when we started Scoop.it. Back then, we felt the need - in spite of Tumblr's already growing success back then - for a platform dedicated to Curation. While some questioned the opportunity, this post and the growing success not just of Scoop.it but other curation services are a great sign of the legitimacy of that need.

 

Interestingly as well, it's fascinating to me to see that post curated with one angle by Robin, with another angle by Jan and then by me with a different twist again. This is typical of this idea that Curation is some form of creation: by enabling expression. I would not have picked up Drake's opening comment nor would I have thought about writing about it but I can more easily express some thought on a piece of already-existing content. Hopefully adding context for a particular audience which - with great satisfaction - we see Scoop.it users develop a lot more (and in a better way) than - says DeLine - "rebloggers, basking in all the beautiful projections on their Tumblr sites and Pinterest pages, hoping that someone (anyone!) stumbles across them and sees the collection as a reflection of themselves."

Robin Good's curator insight, November 6, 2013 3:11 PM



Pinboard is a social bookmarking service which allows you to easily save and organize any number of links, with no limits on text descriptions. Pinboard is characterized by having a no-frills, simple interface, by being very speedy and reliable and by being able to import, sync and export all of your links easily.


Pinboard integrates also a powerful web caching and indexing feature available to "pro" accounts ($25/year) which allows you to keep a full cached and searchable copy of any bookmark you save.


Advanced edit tagging, filtering and bundling features make it easy to oganize and find links even inside very large collections.

Links saved can be set to be public or private.


All of the bookmarks saved inside Pinboard can be easily exported in a standard file format. A set of basic APIs is also available.


You can import all your existing bookmarks from Delicious, Google Bookmarks, Diigo, Firefox, Safari, and many other sources by following the instructions on the howto page.


A very useful feature called Tab Sets allows to quickly save all of your currently open browser tabs to Pinboard having the unique advantage of being able to re-open them even if you're on another machine or in a different browser. 


N.B.: The site has a unique and now proven business model and is entirely self-funded. Ad-free.


My comment: Excellent bookmarking service for anyone in need of a no-frill, reliable and fast tool. The archiving feature is particularly valuable as well as the auto-syncing with multiple services (Instapaper, Read It Later, Twitter. Delicious).


The service has a one-time fee of around $10.

ghbrett's insight:

This is a concern of historians, archivists, and even English professors. There are many cases of lost opportunities. This problem is compounded by the rapidly changing media: 5.25 inch floppy disks -> 3.5 inch plastic disks -> USB storage -> SCSI Hard Disks -> and on and on. We are making the notion of a creative trail more and more difficult. These facts should be impressed on students, faculty, and digital natives -- their content is ephemeral. What would happen if Google had to close all it's services tomorrow? What would you loose?

'Not Google Waving, but Drowning?': Digital Literary Archives

'Not Google Waving, but Drowning?': Digital Literary Archives | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

Many emails now being created, and thus potentially archived by libraries, are the contemporary equivalent not of paper letters, but of phone calls - which, with few exceptions, were unrecorded, and really were lost to history. 

 

... In terms of digital literary archives, one of the lessons for today's archivists is that so-called e-manuscripts are highly unstable, and need early curatorial intervention to secure them against the threats of technological obsolescence. This means that the writers involved become increasingly aware of interest in their papers, and for novelist Jonathan Franzen, this changes everything: 'Unfortunately, I think that once writers become self-conscious about preserving archival material, the game is over...I also don't see how you resist the temptation to select material that suggests the most flattering narratives. And not just select, but actively create!' ..." - from the Source: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk

ghbrett's insight:

This post is timely for me. Lately I have begun to realize just how much we citizens depend on Internet based programming, controllers, digital imaging, digital content, and more products. All of these are in my opinion targets or potentials recipients of either accidental or malicious elimination (e.g., massive EMP attack). This ecosystem also includes the management of analog devices like garage doors, security gates, and other systems that are managed by digital control. Another factor is rapid obsolescence. I a past job, one of my tasks was to transfer data (manuscripts and research) from old media to newer media. Like 5.25 inch CP/M hard sectored diskettes to 360KB single sided MS-DOS 5.25 inch diskettes. It may sound amusing, but it was a challenge then. Now the challenge is being referred to as "Curation" of data. Or colloquially, "Keeping up with the Jones's."

 

Is the future doom and gloom. Most likely not. But, I am considering producing more ink on paper for text and images that has a reputation for longevity or of archival quality. But, I have so much content, I am not sure that I will succeed. Besides, who cares at the moment other than myself or perhaps family members. (NB: as an informal Family Historian I now have over 14Gb of text, eBooks, images, census images, and other content. Who cares? I'm not sure.

 

So, I'll be on the look out for open, easily transportable technologies that will enable me to keep upgrading or transferring my data to the shiny new toys that the Jone's have.

 

At the very least this theme must be included in any Digital Literacy program as well as any activity that depends on clouds, wikis, blogs, tweets, social media, social photography, etc., etc..

 

If you have any suggestions, I'd be most interested in hearing about them.

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data - Brian Solis | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it
"... The human algorithm is part understanding and part communication. The ability to communicate and apply insights internally and externally is the key to unlocking opportunities to earn relevance. Beyond research, beyond intelligence, the human algorithm is a function of extracting insights with intention, humanizing trends ad possibilities and working with strategists to improve and innovate everything from processes to products to overall experiences.

The idea of the human algorithm is to serve as the human counterpart to the abundance of new social intelligence and listening platforms hitting the market every day. Someone has to be on the other side of data to interpret it beyond routine. Someone has to redefine the typical buckets where data is poured. And someone has to redefine the value of data to save important findings from a slow and eventual death by three-ring binders rich with direction and meaning."

"With a running time of less than three minutes the film Lost Memories makes a powerful comment on digital versus analog living as well as the nature of memories—especially when they are all tweeted, blogged or committed to a digital archive somewhere." - from the source

 

NOTE: This should be mandatory reading and viewing for Digital Literacy and for any Digital Media event or course. How fragile is our digital trail of files, images, musice, etc., etc.?

 

Often I wonder what might happen the the terabyte or so of digital images I have as well as the 10+ years of family genealogy (6 Gb) now on 2 hard disks (one as backup). Then I shrug my shoulders thinking it's too much. I do not have a good answer, but I note a revival among some photographers of analog film fotos. I note that genealogy books recommend acid free paper copies and prints of your historical and anecdotal information.
