The librarian bonus - Doug Johnson's Blue Skunk Blog | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

If you hire a professionally trained librarian and give them tech integration responsibilities, you get an experienced teacher who is knowledgeable about technology and how it can be used in a variety of ways in the classroom, can do a little trouble-shooting, and can offer professional development experiences on the use of technology.

To Get More Creative, Become Less Productive

To Get More Creative, Become Less Productive | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

There is a fundamental tension between productivity and creativity, and managers won’t get more of the latter until they recognize it.

Productive people move through the tasks they have to accomplish in a systematic way. They make steady and measurable progress toward their goals. They make effective and efficient use of their time.

Creativity… doesn’t.

Creativity needs time and space to grow. Although we can systematically engage in activities that are related to creativity, it is hard to systematize creativity itself. In particular, creativity is fundamentally about knowledge. Nearly all creative ideas involve people finding new uses for existing knowledge – some novel configuration of old insights. James Dyson developed his vacuum by drawing a parallel to sawmills. Fiona Fairhurst designed a faster swimsuit by understanding shark skin. George de Mestral invented Velcro by understanding cockleburs.

That means people need to have the time to learn things that are not obviously relevant to their jobs, so that they will have a broad and deep knowledge base to draw from when they need to be creative.

Moreover, creative enterprises rarely involve steady and measurable progress. Instead, being creative involves trying lots of different possibilities, struggling down several blind alleys before finding the right solution.

What could have happened to Hillary’s emails? | Power Over Information

What could have happened to Hillary’s emails? | Power Over Information | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

“Data never dies,” said Tim Williams, CEO of Index Engines. “All modern organizations have robust data protection processes that make copies of everything and archive it on backup media to ensure it can survive a disaster. In cases like this, those copies represent the factual truth. They can’t be changed after the fact.

“When an email is sent, it is copied and archived and preserved many times over. This is a disaster recovery feature standard in any data center. What Hillary Clinton probably didn’t know is that exact copies of what existed is archived in data center disaster recovery archives, or backup tapes, that allow for a rebuilding of an email server in case of a failure.”

we ruthlessly delete content that doesn't get used, if we don’t ensure the right information gets stored for the future we may find ourselves unable to learn from our successes and follies.

RuthEastham's insight:

"There is a middle ground between what is kept on the intranet to ensure the content on it is what people want on a day-to-day basis and where documents are stored forever. That content in that middle ground is ‘inactive’ and it should be stored for a certain period before being disposed of."

How to establish a defensible deletion policy

How to establish a defensible deletion policy | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

Control risk and manage expenses associated with employee documents and email. Not only can you defensibly delete your legacy data, but you also should do so as a responsible member of your organization.

RuthEastham's insight:
Implementing a defensible deletion methodology not only manages long term risks and liabilities related to enterprise data assets; it also saves time and expense to support ongoing litigation and e-discovery efforts and reduces data center budget spent on storing and managing data that is no longer useful.

Data Ownership - who owns my data?

RuthEastham's insight:

November 2012

"The amount of data in our world today is substantially outsized. Many of the personal and non-personal aspects of our day-to-day activities are aggregated and stored as data by both businesses and governments. The increasing data captured through multimedia, social media, and the Internet are a phenomenon that needs to be properly examined. In this article, we explore this topic and analyse the term data ownership. We aim to raise awareness and trigger a debate for policy makers with regard to data ownership and the need to improve existing data protection, privacy laws, and legislation at both national and international levels."
