The Deep Web vs. The Dark Web | Dictionary.com Blog | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Dictionary.com’s latest update contains many terms ushered into existence because of technological advancements. Two of these new entries, deep web and dark web, are so technical in nature that we came across a lot of confusion as to what they actually mean in our research. More tech-savvy publications generally have a disclaimer when discussing the dark web, pleading with their readers that this is not to be confused with the deep web, which is related, but not at all the same thing. So, what exactly are the dark web and the deep web, and why are technology reporters so wary when using either term?

Don’t Fret About What Social Media is Doing to Relationships | MIT Technology Review

Don’t Fret About What Social Media is Doing to Relationships | MIT Technology Review | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Love and sex in the age of social media and mobile communication.
Sharrock's insight:

Love this question: “What happens after you’ve had a great online flirtatious chat … and then the conversation sucks in person?” 


I think about the old days when people didn't have email or the Internet. They depended on the postal services of their day. People wrote letters and it would take days (or weeks?) to receive a letter. Wouldn't it be an interesting school experiment for everybody to write letters to each other and agree not to use electronic means of contact for a given amount of time?

'I Will Ruin Him' - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education

'I Will Ruin Him' - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
A cyberstalked novelist traces the evolution of his aggressor’s flirty-turned-fierce digital attacks.
Sharrock's insight:

This is a scary introduction to the cyberstalking problem in existence, but also, the creativity of using the present lax identity security for memberships to forums and other e-groups indicates possibilities of more damage. The security  and integrity of one's digital presence and identity may become a new kind of service. Insurance may become available for these protections as well. Protocols will get drawn up. Huge possibilities in professional development trainings. Many discussions will arise around whether one is ever vigilant enough or paranoid.

 

School personnel and clinicians of various professions have much to worry about. We communicate/collaborate/problem solve in private as well as in groups. The Knowledge Era has a whole set of brand new crimes.

 

The detached keypads (to replace newspaper cutouts we usually see for fictional hostage ransom notes) is creative and ominous.
