Microblogs in China: Bringing the State Back In - ISN | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Why have some authoritarian regimes tolerated the spread of new communications technologies? If China is any example, argues Nele Noesselt, it’s because they’re using social media to gauge public opinion, maintain their legitimacy, and avoid having to make serious political reforms.

The architecture of learning

The architecture of learning | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

One of the characteristics of Web 2.0, according to the man who coined the phrase, is to be found in its architecture. As far as Tim O'Reilly is concerned, Web 2.0 tools are configured in such a way that they 'get smarter the more people use them.' This facet was explained very clearly in Michael Wesch's excellent video Web 2.0 .. The Machine is Us/ing Us, which shows how web tools work better the more people use them. Social tagging for example, becomes increasingly stronger as people populate it with content and links. Blogs rely not only on content, but on users, and ultimately on the dialogue that ensues between all those who read the content. In his famous Wired article, Kevin Kelly predicted this by suggesting that Web 2.0 was about leveraging collective intelligence. Web 2.0 has marked a shift in emphasis from the personal computer to the web, and the services it conveys. Web 2.0 is qualitatively different to what preceded it. Essentially, where Web 1.0 was about pushed content, and a 'sticky internet' where users could change very little, the evolution of the web into Web 2.0 has been viewed as epitomising the power of participation, and arguably, it's also about the democratisation of the internet.

Building a distribution strategy for your blog will give your blog post a longer shelf life past the publish date. Once you get a handle of distributing content across owned channels (e.g. company newsletter, social media, etc.), look to third party platforms like Reddit, Quora and industry specific forums to also re-purpose your content on.

Blogging for Freedom in Vietnam

Blogging for Freedom in Vietnam | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

These cases have painted a bleak picture of Internet freedom in Vietnam, a country that blocks Web sites and surveils netizens. The Internet came to Vietnam in the nineteen-nineties, and use of it has grown at a rapid pace ever since. According to figures from 2013, more than one in four Vietnamese said that they had used the Internet in the past week. The Vietnamese government, in response, has tried to rein in dissent by enacting laws that restrict online content, but authorities cannot entirely control the spread of information.
