Llandrillo Library's curator insight, January 2, 4:44 AM

There have been more mobile phone subscriptions than people on the planet since 2013! (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22464368) - with this in mind the article above shouldn't come as a surprise. But the speed of the scale of the phone ownership and the pace of change to personal devices and wifi usage weren't as obvious. In developing countries the mobile phone is being seen as the way to beat the digital divide and they are a far more practical solution than desktops or laptops.

Ways to use Wikipedia | International Librarians Network

Ways to use Wikipedia | International Librarians Network | Foundation Degree Information Society | Scoop.it

Wikipedia has become one of the most influential portals for internet-based research — providing readers with an initial overview of almost any topic and acting as a first stop for expert researchers. Moreover, the platform increasingly favours both scholarship and openness: a recent study showed that journals published as open access are used more frequently on Wikipedia, and Altmetrics has begun measuring Wikipedia citations to encourage public scholarly work. This research connection makes libraries an important part of Wikipedia’s ecosystem.

Do you agree? Who is dictating our rights and are being developed based on learning from mistakes rather than proper future proofing right now?
