The Publicly Curated Multimedia Library of America Is Coming: extraMUROS

The Publicly Curated Multimedia Library of America Is Coming: extraMUROS | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

From the official page: "extraMUROS is an open-source HTML5 infrastructure built on public APIs that aims to fundamentally change the way people discover, curate and share digital collections of books, images, sounds, video and other media.

 

extraMUROS is a unique collaboration between the metaLAB (at) Harvard, Frances Loeb Library, the Harvard Library Lab and a network of journalists, designers and developers."

 

From the official video:

"extraMUROS is a groundbreaking project that aims to shape the Digital Library of America into a multimedia library without walls through an open-source HTML5 platform built on public APIs.

 

Extramuros strives to fundamentally transform how people:

 

a) Discover

 

b) Curate 

 

c) Share digital collections.

 

Extramuros is made up of four key features:

1) Shared Access

Interconnectedness between libraries, museums,  and national archives and repositories (Flickr, YouTube, Internet Archive, tec.) of all kinds.

 

2) Visual Discovery
Ability to explore content collections in completely new ways driven by innovative visualization approaches. 

 

3) Curation

A collaborative curation system open to anyone to bring together collections, exhibitions or galleries combining text, images, audio and video.

 

4) Multi-Channeling

Accessibility online and on iPads and other mobile devices."

 

Robin Good: This looks like a very promising project, which brings together and pioners some really innovative approaches in search and discovery of content. 

 

As can be seen in the video, a Chrome extension has already been developed, helping active curator to easily collect content in a variety of formats and from very different kind of sources, into browsable collections.

 

Inspiring. 8/10

The Attention Deficit Society--And What We Can Do About It | HASTAC

The Attention Deficit Society--And What We Can Do About It | HASTAC | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

I happen to believe between the maleable, plastic, ever-shaping and ever-regenerating brain there happens to be will (on a personal level), instruction (on a pedagogical level), care (on a parental level), and oversight (on an institutional level). That is, the Internet is not Godzilla and we are not the panicked, screaming, fleeing mobs in a B-movie, doing everything we can to escape but, inevitably, incapable of doing anything but succumbing to the monster who is taking over our life.

Feeling Sick? Google Wants You to Search Your Symptoms

Feeling Sick? Google Wants You to Search Your Symptoms | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it
The next time you need to identify a mysterious pain in your body, you could look it up in Google Search, and Google will tell you directly on the results page what might be the possible cause of your symptoms.

 

“You might be trying to understand why you’ve had a headache every morning for a week or why your child has a tummy ache all of a sudden,” Google Chief Health Strategist Roni Zeiger said in a blog post Monday.

 

Google could tell by looking at its search data that when people typically searched for a symptom, they were interested in learning about possible causes and related conditions. Now Google has removed that second search and includes “searches related to” the symptom and possible causes.
