Your Life Is A Transmedia Experience

Social Creature:  '“Transmedia” has become the new buzzword for multi-platform narratives, but in the digital age, transmedia isn’t just how we consume entertainment narratives, it’s how we experience the narrative of our lives.'

Why Open Access Is Critical for the Future of Scientific Papers

Robin Good: Few people today are aware of how much scientific knowledge is being restricted and not made accessible to everyone, thanks to existing business model and the exorbitant subscription prices that scientific journals and magazines charge to their subscribers.

 

Since such journals are the key medium through which scientists can get their work published and distributed widely, the least accessible are these journals, the greater the amount of people who will not be able to read what such research documents contain.

 

Nick Shockey and Jonathan Eisen provide an in-depth explanation of why "open access" in the case of scientific papers is so critical for our future.

Print a Book With the Best Content From Your Social Media Channels: Scribr

Print a Book With the Best Content From Your Social Media Channels: Scribr | Medialia | Scoop.it

Scribr is a new service which makes it possible for anyone to publish a print book that includes all of the best content and images from their selected social accounts.

 

Scribr lets you plug in your social media accounts – Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, Tumblr and Foursquare – and create a printed book of all of your updates, photos, check-ins and posts. You can also include your Instagram photos, but only if they are shared on your Facebook or Twitter accounts.

 

How it works: Connect your accounts, and then choose between two options.

 

a) Either generate a book with all of your posts for any given year, or

 

b) determine the time frame and which items from each account you want to include.

 

At the moment you can include or exclude your personal Scribr diary, Facebook photos, likes and notes, all Flickr images, Foursquare checkins, Tumblr photos, text, and quotes, and of course, all of your tweets.

 

More services will be added in the future, including Google+, Posterous, 500px, and native Instagram support, as well as support for RSS feeds.

 

"The book itself, which will cost you $45, looks pretty impressive. The glossy cover has a magazine feel to it, while the matte paper will show off your yearly photos beautifully."

 

Scribr books are printed in vivid full color on 80-pound matte "snow white" premium paper, and perfect-bound in a glossy customizable cover.

Speech Recognition For Everyone: Text Dictation Comes To Your Browser with TalkTyper

Speech Recognition For Everyone: Text Dictation Comes To Your Browser with TalkTyper | Medialia | Scoop.it

Robin Good: TalkTyper is a web-based app that allows you to talk into any microphone connected to your computer and to have your words immediately typed and ready to copied and pasted into any traditional document.

 

TalkTyper goes beyond simple real-time transcription by offering you:

-> alternative words and interpretations

-> the ability to edit the transcription on the fly

-> the option to immediately save the transcribed text in a special editable area, and to then send it out via email, Twitter, or to translate automatically into another language.

 

I have personally tried the app, which is extremely simple to use, and I must say that as long as you do not use fancy words, and keep your pace rather slow, TalkTyper does an impressive job of capturing and transcribing your words into actual text.

 

It is possible also to insert punctuation marks while you talk by calling them up specifically during dictation. 

 

TalkTyper works in over 16 different languages including English (US and UK), German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and Russian.

 

The app is free to use.

 

Try it out for yourself now: http://talktyper.com/ ;
