Net Neutrality: Today's Debates Are the Tip of the Iceberg

Net Neutrality: Today's Debates Are the Tip of the Iceberg | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it
Debates about net neutrality may center today on prioritization of video streams, but they will soon encompass data streams that power everything from entertainment to vital domestic functions. According to a new eMarketer report, once the internet truly becomes the internet of everything, the stakes in the prioritization game will only go higher.

Via Marylene Delbourg-Delphis
David Collet's insight:

You may yhink this has nothing to do with you. Your wrong. The hidden part of this is the cost of the loss of neutrality. Suddenly service providers - typically telcos - can charge more for 'premium' serivces. Then a new 'kampung' is created for anyone who can't or won't pay for premium bandwidth. Slow data speeds don't work when you need an essential service. After all. We are all paying for the building of the infrastructure. We should all get to enjoy equal benefits once it is built.

The Myths Of Creativity: Building A Better Mousetrap

David Collet's insight:

This compliments another article I scooped concerning failure.

 

If an idea is truly innovative it will likely fail. Because we are all strongly resistant to change. But that doesn't mean you stop being innovative. Failure is part of the learning process.

 

People who know me have heard this story. Probably more than once. But I think it is worth repeating. 

 

I worked for Bell Canada in the IT Department. It was a good company to work for at the time. My main responsibility was to innovate. Tough job description. But the money was good and my budget was liberal. Each year I would try out perhaps one new idea a month. Not really a heavy load but enough. Of those typically 10 or maybe 11 would fail. But the ones that worked and were accepted (which is my definition of success) always paid my salary, budget costs, a nice annual bonus and provided a hefty margin for Bell. So they let me keep doing it.

 

In my experience this article is spot on. Innovation is something you need to force feed people. It seldom is something that is going to be stolen - until you have proven its worth.

The Really Scary Thing About Those Jaw-Dropping Siberian Craters

The Really Scary Thing About Those Jaw-Dropping Siberian Craters | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it
While staring down into the abyss of these craters is a scary thought, the release of large quantities of greenhouse gases from melting permafrost is similarly existentially daunting.
David Collet's insight:

The current dry spell in Malaysia - and I won't say 'drought' because we still get rain - is probably caused by climate change so this article should be of interest to all.

 

We have got to the point where the change is going to happen. Is happening already. Now we must be intelligent enough to plan for it. 

 

Our current MB Selangor seems to understand this but he seems to be a voice calling out in the mindless wilderness. IMHO.

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's curator insight, July 22, 11:08 AM
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

"Content curation is about sharing knowledge. By carefully selecting the right content and placing it in the right context, content curators transform information into knowledge. 

 

@Marc Rougier's post comes back on the results of our extensive survey on the status of knowledge sharing in the enterprise which measured how knowledge became a strategic asset for the enterprise - yet one that is largely underserved in terms of tools or platforms to manage its dissemination properly. 


"While there is consensus on the importance of sharing knowledge within organizations, current systems have not adapted to third-party content."


Here's how you can prepare your company to Knowledge 2.0."

Marilú Aranda Landa's curator insight, June 12, 8:18 AM

Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 6:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 18, 12:15 PM

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

Which Countries Are the Worst Carbon Polluters in History?

Which Countries Are the Worst Carbon Polluters in History? | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it

"To get a sense of how ridiculous carbon pollution has become, going back in time gives some perspective. So, let’s time-travel. The World Resources Institute just updated its compendium of historical carbon dioxide emissions for each country in the world to include 2011. More interestingly, the group has extended the oldest data. Previously the collection reached only to 1990, but now it goes all the way back to 1850."


Via Laurence Serfaty
David Collet's insight:

Interesting little factoid almost at the end of the article. It notes that while China is the leader in emissions, the UK emits more per person than does China. And there is no comment concerning the US numbers. And Canada who ranks high as a contibutor must have close to worst record per person because the population is small.
