Lis Marrow's insight:

This mindset is where we all should start heading!  To my mind anyway.  When we share stuff with others, forage for food, recycle clothes via the Sallies etc, we are already involved and cutting down on the consumer society....;)

The Never Ending Thesis

The Never Ending Thesis | Libraries for all | Scoop.it

Welcome to Doug Belshaw's #neverendingthesis!

On Monday 3rd October 2011 I submitted my doctoral thesis to Durham University: What is 'digital literacy'? A Pragmatic investigation.

"A movie is never finished, only abandoned." (George Lucas)

Just like a movie director, I don't feel that I 'finished' my work in order to submit. Instead, there came a time when I had to draw a line under which was written 'submission date'. This wiki is a chance for me to continue working on my thesis long after it's been submitted. In the sidebar you will see links to the various chapters that make up my thesis. Depending upon when you access this wiki, the content may be very similar or completely different from the version I submitted.

The version I deposited in Durham University's e-theses repository is available in Microsoft Word (.doc) and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format below:

I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but if it lives up to the blurb it should be good. One of the features of mobile learning is the "small chunks" of learning thto users expect, so this could offer a good way to provide that.

White House Petition Launched To 'Recast Copyright For The Digital Age' | Techdirt

White House Petition Launched To 'Recast Copyright For The Digital Age' | Techdirt | Libraries for all | Scoop.it

A whole bunch of folks (surprising, given the number of signatures on the petition so far) have sent over a new "We the People..." petition on the White House's site, asking the White House to "recast copyright law for the digital era." The petition notes that the public has lost respect for copyright law, and the government should take steps to fix that, including securing first sale rights, more transparency and a right to remix.

 

The public disregards copyright law because it is out of sync with the digital age. We want the right to resell digital content (ebooks, etc.) that we've paid for. We need transparency in the marketplace to understand what rights we have.

Additionally, as responsible creators we need to be able to freely remix existing music and other forms of creative expression to create new works without undue fear of prosecution. This upholds the original Constitutional purpose of copyright, which is to promote progress.

This will nurture the process of innovation and the sharing of our culture. The language of the existing copyright law must be changed to accommodate the way information is being created and consumed in our digital world.

 

There can be plenty of debates over where to set copyright law's specific boundaries, but it seems clear that if it's ever to regain any kind of respect, it needs to move in the direction advocated above. I don't know the specifics, but apparently this petition was first put together by a "digital copyright" class at Dominican University, and a bunch of its students appear to be tweeting about it...
