Boycott GoDaddy

Happy Holidays -- we have some great news to share.

We've just won two huge battles in the fight against Internet censorship -- everything you are doing is working! First off, the House of Representatives failed to move SOPA out of committee! Why? Because their offices got swamped with phone calls and overwhelmed by the snowballing opposition. Thank you for helping make that happen.

Second, in response to the boycott of GoDaddy, the web hosting company just made a public announcement that it's dropping its support of SOPA. Amazing what you have made happen.

Yet, we can't let GoDaddy off the hook just yet. GoDaddy supports the Senate version of SOPA, called the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). The boycott has to continue -- Please click here to pledge to join it.

Please join us in holding GoDaddy accountable, until they drop any and all efforts to support not just SOPA, but also its Senate cousin, PIPA. The boycott already worked to get GoDaddy to change their position on SOPA, now we urgently need to hear from GoDaddy about PIPA too.

So what's next?

The PIPA bill is still alive and strong in the Senate, and could be voted on in January. Like SOPA, it threatens free speech, innovation, and the basic structure of the Internet.

Keep transferring your domains from GoDaddy until they fully come out against PIPA and SOPA. They need to send a letter to Congress making their opposition to both bills clear -- Click here to join the cause.

Thank you for all that you do -- it is working!

What Is College For?

What Is College For? | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Our views on the "failure" of higher education may be based on a basic misunderstanding of its essential function.

 

I feel that this conversation also fits with the question "What is technology for" KM

 

Here is my favorite quote:
Good teaching does not make a course’s subject more interesting; it gives the students more interests — and so makes them more interesting.

Learning with 'e's: Conversation as curriculum

Learning with 'e's: Conversation as curriculum | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

More great thoughts from Steve Wheeler about curriculum (part 2)

 

"In the digital age, conversation as curriculum can be extended beyond the classroom through the use of social media and other communication technologies. Conversation for learning across a number of platforms suggests that two or more discussions can occur simultaneously. It may be impossible to change the curriculum we are tasked to deliver. However, teachers who appreciate the merits of conversation in a truly Socratic mode will redesign lessons to incorporate learning activities to reflect it."

The Four Lenses of Game Making - What Games Are

The Four Lenses of Game Making - What Games Are | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I haven't been a gamer since my high school days.  On cold days like today, I miss college days of playing Ken Griffey Jr. and NBA Live 95.  This past year, I have become a bit interested in the theory behind gaming and gamification and its' possible inclusion into marketing, education, etc.  This link does a nice job of giving a solid overview of the four lenses of Game Making.

Twitter's 15 Major Milestones in 2011 | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Key Takeaway:

June: After surpassing 50 million tweets per day in 2010, Twitter reached a new milestone of 200 million tweets sent per day. Each second, 2,400 tweets are sent through Twitter, totaling about 1.4 billion tweets per week.

According to Twitter's calculations, the amount of tweets sent in one day is enough to write a 10 million-page book or 8,163 copies of War and Peace.

Vadim Lavrusik: Curation And Amplification Will Become Much More Sophisticated In 2012 | Nieman Lab

Vadim Lavrusik: Curation And Amplification Will Become Much More Sophisticated In 2012 | Nieman Lab | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Vadim Lavrusik is the Journalist Program Manager at Facebook and he makes interesting points about:

 

For the last year, much of the focus has been on curating content from the social web and effectively contextualizing disparate pieces of information to form singular stories.

 

 

In 2012, there will be even more emphasis not only on curating that content, but also on amplifying it through increasingly effective distribution mechanisms.

 

Because anyone can publish content today and report information from a breaking news event, the role journalists can play in amplifying — and verifying — that content becomes ever more important.

 

Curation itself will continue to evolve and become more sophisticated. As the year has gone on, breaking news itself has taken on new forms beyond the typical chronological curation of a live event. In the new year, we’ll also see new curated story formats. And we’ll see new tools that allow those formats to take life.

 

But the mentality of content curation needs to evolve, as well. there is still little emphasis on making sure that the content is effectively distributed, across platforms and communities.

 

The coming year will see a more balanced approach. Whether it’s a written story or one curated from the citizenry using social media tools, we will see a growing emphasis placed on content amplification through distribution.

 

If content is king, distribution is queen.
