Information Overload Is Not Unique To Digital Age : NPR

The overload of the print revolution led to indexes, reference books, editors, authors, classification systems. 17 minute 48 second audio interview with author of "Too Much to Know" Managing Scholarly Information Before the Modern Age" -- Howard

 

"It is a constant complaint: We're choking on information. The flood of data on the Web has reached mind boggling proportions, and it shows no signs of stopping. But wait, says Harvard professor Ann Blair -- this is not a new condition."

Vyclone: This collaborative video app is just what citizen journalists ordered

Vyclone: This collaborative video app is just what citizen journalists ordered | HASTAC | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:

"Vyclone is a free iOS app (UK-only for now), that professes to let you “Record life from all angles” – in short, it lets users collaborate from different locations and perspectives to “co-create, sync and share movies”.

 

Vyclone lets you upload a clip to its servers, where other users can throw their own shots into the mix to create a crowdsourced movie encompassing, literally, different points-of-view.

 

Once you’re in you can browse existing videos, or start shooting footage yourself.

 

It’s worth noting that once you upload a video for the Vyclone-using public to access, others can remix it and do as they please.

 

You can choose what content you want to share publicly through Vyclone, and whether you want to keep it private between you and your buddies. If you don’t choose ‘public’ or ‘private’, it will default to the former.

 

A nice little feature is that you can search for movies that have already been created nearby, which obviously lends itself well to event-specific video collaborations.

Once you’re done shooting or remixing the movie with the built-in editing tool, you can choose to broadcast your movie across all the usual social networks.

 

It’s worth noting that the app is UK-only for now, though as The Guardian notes, a full-scale launch should happen this year. And an Android app is in the works too..."

Why Flip The Classroom When We Can Make It Do Cartwheels? | HASTAC | Scoop.it

We all know what a traditional college classroom looks like: students in rows stare glassy-eyed at the professor who drones on, paying more attention to the equations he’s writing on the board than the students he’s supposed to be teaching. No wonder many are proposing using digital technology to “flip” the classroom. In flipping, students do the homework before class, typically reading course materials or watching videos of lectures online. Class time is spent on individual or small group tutoring, with the lesson plan set by the student, concentrating on areas he didn’t understand.

Amsterdam Tries to Change Culture With ‘Repair Cafes’

Amsterdam Tries to Change Culture With ‘Repair Cafes’ | HASTAC | Scoop.it

At Amsterdam’s first Repair Cafe, an event originally held in a theater’s foyer, then in a rented room in a former hotel and now in a community center a couple of times a month, people can bring in whatever they want to have repaired, at no cost, by volunteers who just like to fix things.

 

Conceived of as a way to help people reduce waste, the Repair Cafe concept has taken off since its debut two and a half years ago

Nice to see others have similar problems. Manufacturers tend to see it another way: cheaper and better is to buy a new gadget than repair.

I know, it's terrible. Someone recently bragged to me about how every time his iPhone gets a little scratch, he just takes it in and has it replaced for a new one.
