Vuzix Smart Glasses M100.. to give Google Glass a run for its money | Social Justice and Media | Scoop.it

"Vuzix is launching an Android-powered wearable computer by early 2013.

 

Google is definitely not alone in developing wearable technologies that may one day find themselves on your and my body in the next few years. For one, a company called Vuzix has developed an Android-based device called the M100, which resembles an oversized Bluetooth headset."

Consider news ways of engaging your donors - what do they do for fun?

 

For many brands, one of the appealing aspects of social media is the opportunity to target and acquire new customers.

If You Can't Beat 'Em, Subvert 'Em: Countering Misinformation on the Viral Web

If You Can't Beat 'Em, Subvert 'Em: Countering Misinformation on the Viral Web | Social Justice and Media | Scoop.it

First came the fakes. Old storm photos dredged up and labeled Sandy. Photoshopped sharks in a flooded New Jersey town. A still from the Day After Tomorrow of the Statue of Liberty. An empty Times Square. A scuba diver in Times Square station. A lost seal borrowed from Duluth.

 

But very early Tuesday morning, a few hours after Sandy had made landfall, the flow of fake images of the storm began to slow, and by Tuesday afternoon, the unbelievable photographs of damage were almost all, tragically, real. For two days, our team here at The Atlantic along with journalist Tom Phillips (@flashboy) did our best to reduce the amount of disinformation spreading on the web and to confirm the work that amateurs and pros alike were publishing about the storm. Through the hours of detail-oriented tasks, some thoughts accumulated in my head about the state of our information ecosystem. I'm not sure if they're waste products -- like leftover browser tabs from a wild Internet goose chase -- or if they're an interesting distillate, but I thought I'd share them. I'm wary of overlearning from one case. And yet this is what I saw.

 

What is it to experience a major and fast-moving news event primarily through the Internet? I don't think we've done nearly enough anthropological research on this topic. We know what it is to sit in front of a network news or cable news or even the radio. (One of my most distinct memories of childhood is sitting in front of the TV watching the LA riots unfold, drawing fantastical guns in a sketchbook.) Without really knowing it, you learned how to discount or rely on information depending on where it was coming from. If you saw a shot of dozens of fires across Los Angeles taken from a helicopter, you could count on that being real. If anchors said on the air that there were snipers on the 405, you knew to weight that report appropriately.
