Aaron Swartz: Quién escribe la Wikipedia

Traducción de Who Writes Wikipedia?, un artículo de Aaron Swartz, candidato al Consejo de Administración de Wikimedia, sobre el papel de los colaboradores ocasionales (la tan aludida «injerencia externa») en la construcción de la Wikipedia.

Aaron Swartz

   Vi por primera vez a Jimbo Wales, la cara visible de la Wikipedia, cuando vino a dar una charla a Stanford. Wales nos habló sobre la historia, la tecnología y la cultura de la Wikipedia, pero una de las cosas que dijo destaca sobre las demás. «La idea que mucha gente tiene de la Wikipedia», dijo, «es que es algún tipo de fenómeno emergente —la sabiduría de las masas, la inteligencia colmena, ese tipo de cosas— miles y miles de usuarios que individualmente añaden un poquito de contenido, y de esto emerge un cuerpo de trabajo coherente». Pero, insisistió, la verdad era muy distinta: la Wikipedia la escribía en realidad «una comunidad... un grupo dedicado de unos pocos cientos de voluntarios» en el que «conozco a todos ellos y todos ellos se conocen entre sí». En realidad, «se parece bastante a cualquier organización tradicional».

IRC is dead, long live IRC

IRC is dead, long live IRC | La red y lo social | Scoop.it
We talked to the creator of IRC about why the once so widely used technology has seemingly fallen out of favor with so many users.
Joaquín Herrero Pintado's insight:

“Companies want to bring users to their walled gardens,” he says, to ”keep the user’s profiles locked there and not make it easy for users to leave the garden and take their data with them.”

 

IRC’s distributed nature does not fit with the walled garden approach

How ecosystems became the new walled gardens

How ecosystems became the new walled gardens | La red y lo social | Scoop.it
In 2012, the walled garden is back as a business model used by nearly every giant involved in the Web today: Apple, Google, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook. The new walled garden takes different forms — some through their mobile OS, some through a ubiquitous service — but each walled garden is designed to create an alluring experience for consumers. They all rely on an ecosystem of developers, content publishers, and others that took them years to cultivate. They are the primary connection points for consumer to today’s Web, the way portals and online services like AOL were a dozen years ago.

Trial by Timeline

Amnesty International is launching a Facebook application that will illustrate to users of the social media site how their posts could see them tortured, imprisoned or even killed in other countries. The application, called Trial By Timeline, scans a person's Facebook page and determines what crimes they might have committed in other countries simply through listing their occupation, gender, relationship status or liking posts that an oppressive regime may deem offensive.

How Google Author Rank could change content marketing… and journalism

How Google Author Rank could change content marketing… and journalism | La red y lo social | Scoop.it
Here’s a little piece of SEO nerdery that affects us all: Google is using Google+ to influence search results in a big way, and brands and media organizations alike have yet to wake up to the...
Joaquín Herrero Pintado's insight:

The change is very simple — Google wants to prioritize content created by verified writers with authority in certain topics in its results. Credibility is what makes Google’s search results as efficient and useful as they are. Filtering out the spam was the goal of PageRank, and SEO spammer and linking schemes still found ways around that.

 

So now Google is verifying individual writers through its social network, Google+ with something called Author Rank. Now, if a website has connected its writer accounts with their Google+ accounts, search results show a writer’s headshot and byline next to the result for their article. Bylined stories rank higher, and they get more real estate. Most importantly, they return clickthrough rates that are 40 percent greater than normal, according to Greg Boser, President of of SEO agency BlueGlass.

¿Por qué lo llaman 'content curator' cuando quieren decir documentalista?

La cuestión es que lamentablemente nos pesa demasiado el lastre de una profesión poco valorada, circunscrita a las bibliotecas y los centros de documentación. Y como el propio Baiget dice, tampoco esto es nuevo: los bibliotecarios-documentalistas tenemos una larga experiencia en la reivindicación de perfiles y disciplinas emergentes tales como arquitecto de información, analista de información, responsable de inteligencia competitiva, gestor del conocimiento, etc.
