How Twitter Is Changing the Geography of Communication

How Twitter Is Changing the Geography of Communication | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
New research suggests that location plays a smaller role now in who we talk to and what we talk about.
Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

"There are two ways to think about connectivity on Twitter: People "follow" each other (a fairly passive form of interaction), but they also actively engage other people through retweets or direct conversation (mentioning another user’s handle). This first kind of relationship is akin to subscribing to magazines. We may know, for instance, that you get Cat Fancy, TIME, and The Atlantic. But that information tells us nothing about which articles you actually read, or which magazines merely decorate your toilet.


"In reality on Twitter, even though you may be following a lot of people, you’re probably paying attention more to some than others. But there’s no way of recording that," Leetaru says. "What we can do is say 'well, here are the people you’re talking to. Here are the people you thought were interesting enough to retweet.'"

Philosophy isn't dead yet | Raymond Tallis

Philosophy isn't dead yet | Raymond Tallis | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
'...then there is the mishandling of time. The physicist Lee Smolin's recent book, Time Reborn, links the crisis in physics with its failure to acknowledge the fundamental reality of time. Physics is predisposed to lose time because its mathematical gaze freezes change. Tensed time, the difference between a remembered or regretted past and an anticipated or feared future, is particularly elusive. This worried Einstein: in a famous conversation, he mourned the fact that the present tense, "now", lay "just outside of the realm of science".'

Study: Immigrant contributions a boon to Medicare

Study: Immigrant contributions a boon to Medicare | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
A new study reveals that immigrants' contributions to Medicare generated a $115 billion surplus from 2002 to 2009. I am glad to see a study was at last accomplished to demonstrate what common sense should already have postulated. If you know a) most immigrants are young & healthy enough to do labor and b) illegal immigrants cannot benefit from the funds they have paid into social security or medicare, then why would you conclude they are a drain on social programs rather than a boon?

Alice Bell: If we don't recognise the politics of science, we will just get played by those who do
Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

"...Play into a game of hierarchies, and even if you don't get to the top, you get to climb a bit. Pierre Bourdieu, in his classic sociology of the university campus, Homo Academicus, talks about the way students are happy to submit to the idea that they are inferior to senior academics because doing so earns them subsequent admittance to a distinguished club of graduates. I think we can see similar patterns at work in terms of the way academic ideas are shared outside of universities too..."

Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet

Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

It wasn’t malicious. The file itself was the size of a small JPEG. It was given the absolute lowest priority. And it was set to self-destruct if anything went wrong. But this small file allowed one single hacker to measure the Internet activity of nearly half a million connected devices around the world, then share the results with everyone.

How was this even possible? The "hacker" barely hacked anything. In reality, they gained access to all these systems because each had the default "root" set as a password. With this access in hand, they ran several tests focusing on Internet structure and activity. And what they created from all this data is a spectacular map that captures a day in the life of the Internet (and all of its users).
