Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, December 10, 2012 3:43 PM

A good high-level recap of all the different theories behind the multiple universes concept (yes there are also multiple theories of multiple universes: isn't that meta?).

Gestcash's curator insight, December 23, 2012 10:39 AM

The universe we live in may not be the only one out there. In fact, our universe could be just one of an infinite number of universes making up a "multiverse."

Identifying Influential and Susceptible Members of Social Networks

Identifying Influential and Susceptible Members of Social Networks | Living | Scoop.it

Identifying social influence in networks is critical to understanding how behaviors spread. We present a method for identifying influence and susceptibility in networks that avoids biases in traditional estimates of social contagion by leveraging in vivo randomized experimentation. Estimation in a representative sample of 1.3 million Facebook users showed that younger users are more susceptible than older users, men are more influential than women, women influence men more than they influence other women, and married individuals are the least susceptible to influence in the decision to adopt the product we studied. Analysis of influence and susceptibility together with network structure reveals that influential individuals are less susceptible to influence than non-influential individuals and that they cluster in the network, which suggests that influential people with influential friends help spread this product.

This article, like many others, including HTS, focuses on improving girls' education around the world (in Pakistan in this article).  This article also claims that this will decrease terrorism, which is a reason that I selected the article.

Robert Slone's curator insight, Today, 6:59 AM

 If you educate the women, they will in turn educate the children and everyone benefits.

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube | Living | Scoop.it
Social media verse is full of some best kept secrets. YouTube is one of them. Yet when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It's big, wide and deep.

 

In my last post I mentioned that the social media ‘verse is full of some best kept secrets. YouTube is one of them.


This Time cover from a couple of years ago (with the shiny mirrored screen) was prescient, but not quite enough… I’d cross that ‘You’ out and say ‘Us’. Hasn’t it felt that way these last couple of years? How we’ve grown a global collective consciousness?


Despite this cover, YouTube is not usually the first site that comes to mind when thinking about social media. I guess we take it a bit for granted while we wax rhapsodic about Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Quora. Yet when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It’s big, wide and deep.

Mature. Eccentric. Probably not what you think it is.

 

YouTube has its Own Language

How to Back Up and Move a WordPress Blog

How to Back Up and Move a WordPress Blog | Living | Scoop.it

Sometimes you’ll need to move your blog from one host to another. It’s a bit of a pain and might seem a daunting task if you’ve never done it before.

 

But transferring a site is a fairly straightforward process that you can do yourself with an FTP program and this step-by-step guide.

 

Before trying the DIY method, it’s worth checking to see whether your new hosting company offers a site transfer service for new customers. Many do—but check whether there’s a cost involved. I’ve seen free services for this, but I’ve also seen prices around $300!

 

If you just need to learn how to make a simple backup of your posts, and don’t need to move hosts, take a look at this ProBlogger post.

 

But if you’re ready to back up and move your blog, let’s do it.
