"Ian Schreiber posted on Twitter asking
Game designers: in your everyday use of the terms, is there a difference between “rules” and “mechanics”? If so, what?
I do make the distinction, and I had to think a bit about how to even phrase it. So here’s a quick thousand+ words on it."

The academic linguistics of LOLspeak - Boing Boing

The academic linguistics of LOLspeak - Boing Boing | It's All Social | Scoop.it

On Submitterator, Musicman pointed me towards this great presentation on LOLspeak as a form of language play, and why people engage in that play. According to Lauren Gawne, who gave this speech last week at the Australian Linguistics Society conference, the choice to use LOLspeak has a lot to do with establishing identity—the playful identity of "cat", and the serious identity of "knowledgeable Internet user".

The Future of Science 2021: A Multiverse of Exploration - Boing Boing

The Future of Science 2021: A Multiverse of Exploration - Boing Boing | It's All Social | Scoop.it

For the last year, my colleagues and I at Institute for the Future have been researching the future of science to identify big areas of science we think will have a transformative impact over the next decade. We read a lot of papers, conducted interviews, hosted an Open Science unconference, held an expert workshop with researchers from UC Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, UC Davis, SETI, and private industry, and spent many weeks synthesizing what we learned. The result is this map, titled "A Multiverse of Exploration: The Future of Science 2021."

How the "Internet of Things" Is Turning Cities Into Living Organisms

How the "Internet of Things" Is Turning Cities Into Living Organisms | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"With a little help from what's called the Internet of Things, engineers are transforming cities from passive conduits for water into dynamic systems that store and manage it like the tissues of desert animals. By using the Internet to connect real-world sensors and control mechanisms to cloud-based control systems that can pull in streams from any other data source, including weather reports, these efforts enable conservation and money-saving measures that would have been impossible without this virtual nervous system."

The Internet: Triumph of human evolution The Web is more than just a powerful tool, it's our greatest adaptation

The Internet: Triumph of human evolution The Web is more than just a powerful tool, it's our greatest adaptation | It's All Social | Scoop.it
The Internet allows us to do all kinds of things we never imagined possible. It lets us communicate with people across the world. We can learn whatever we want at the click of a button. We can navigate roads using our iPhones, and translate languages within seconds. It makes us smarter, and more versatile, and faster than ever. But the Web isn’t just a truly extraordinary invention, it is the apex of human evolution — and the ultimate evolutionary adaptation.

Rosenfeld Media - The Mobile Frontier Book Site | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Mobile user experience is a new frontier. Untethered from a keyboard and mouse, this rich design space is lush with opportunity to invent new and more human ways for people to interact with information. Invention requires casting off many anchors and conventions inherited from the last 50 years of computer science and traditional design and jumping head first into a new and unfamiliar design space."

“Terrence was an enthusiastic advocate for social media and learning. Over the last few days since his passing I've come to see how incredibly powerful social media truly is. Many in the community, myself included, met and connected with Terrence mostly, if not entirely, online. I would then see him at conferences a couple times a year and we would chat like we'd known each other our entire lives.” – Brent Schlenker

Patry's How to Fix Copyright: deftly argued, incandescent book on the evidence-free state of copyright law - Boing Boing

Patry's How to Fix Copyright: deftly argued, incandescent book on the evidence-free state of copyright law - Boing Boing | It's All Social | Scoop.it

William Patry is no copyright radical. He's the author of some of the major reference texts on copyright, books that most copyright lawyers would have on their bookcases, books like Patry on Copyright. But Patry -- once copyright counsel to the US House of Representatives and policy planning advisor to the US Register of Copyrights -- is furious with the current state of copyright law, and he's marshalled his considerable knowledge of copyright and combined it with his considerable talent as a writer to produce a new book, How to Fix Copyright, a book that is incandescent in every sense of the word.
