Howard Rheingold's curator insight, March 17, 2013 11:56 AM

Evidence that humans started hanging out in settlements long enough for grain to ferment before settled agriculture -- in the fertile crescent and Oaxaca valley -- makes social sense. Agriculture -- an exaptation of beer brewing?

Science has shown that humans are not selfish by nature. How do we transform this trend into cooperation within the company? Yochai Benkler explains the process.
JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

"Science has proven that human beings are not selfish by nature. Recent research in a range of scientific disciplines, such as evolutionary biology, psychology, sociology and experimental economics, have all demonstrated that human beings are not as selfish as we thought. According to the research just 30% of all humans act selfishly by nature, while 20% are unpredictable and the remaining 50% tend to prefer cooperation, although not unconditionally."

 

How can companies and citizens capitalize on this a propensity for cooperation?

Blaithan Michael Altenburg's curator insight, September 24, 2013 12:11 PM

This is good that they are helping

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, September 25, 2013 7:33 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

 

Perma.cc is an upcoming web service that aims to help authors and journals create permanent archival copies of their online published content.

 

Way too often in fact, due to a multitude of reasons, not only content gets moved and relocated to new sites, becoming more difficult to find but in many others it is permanently deleted or lost.

 

To comfort your doubts that this is a true and tangible issue, you should check the work being carried out by Kendra Albert, Larry Lessig and Jonathan Zittrain, who are completing a study of link rot, available at http://papers.ssrn.com/abstract=2329161. ;

 

Link rot is the phenomenon by which material we link to on the distributed Web vanishes or changes beyond recognition over time.

 

Believe it or not half of the links in all of the Supreme Court opinions, don't work anymore.

 

In this context "the Harvard Library Innovation Lab has pioneered a project to unite libraries so that link rot can be mitigated.  We are joined by about thirty law libraries around the world to start Perma.cc, which will allow those libraries on direction of authors and journal editors to store permanent caches of otherwise ephemeral links."

 

The Internet Archive has provided its powerful archiving engine to support this effort and Cloudfare its distributed CDN.

 

The official tagline of the upcoming site reads: "perma.cc helps authors and journals create permanent archived citations in their published work"

 

Here is essence what you should expect from it: "Perma.cc allows users to create citation links that will never break.


When a user creates a Perma.cc link, Perma.cc archives a copy of the referenced content, and generates a link to an unalterable hosted instance of the site.


Regardless of what may happen to the original source, if the link is later published by a journal using the Perma.cc service, the archived version will always be available through the Perma.cc link."

 

N.B.: While anyone will be able to go to Perma.cc and archive any web page this resource is designed for researchers, authors and journals. In this light Perma.cc downloads the material at the designated URL and provides a new URL (a “Perma.cc link”) that can then be inserted in a paper. 


After the paper has been submitted to a journal, the journal staff checks that the provided Perma.cc link actually represents the cited material. If it does, the staff “vests” the link and it is forever preserved. Links that are not “vested” will be preserved for two years, at which point the author will have the option to renew the link for another two years.

 

 

My comment: Can't wait to test it. We need these type of archival tools like oxygen. It's not only important that we organize and curate what is important from the web, but it is essential that we also take care in preserving it for the longest possible time.

 

 

 

Free and open to all (soon).

<<From print media to the internet, scientists have progressed from using magazines, newspapers and tradeshows to the internet, social media, and virtual events. 

.........

 

Scientists now view social media as a great resource for eavesdropping, crowd sourcing, collecting data, and sharing resources, as well as discussing, debating, and developing relationships and communities. Perhaps the most advantageous aspect of social media for scientists has proven to be the virtual event; a place where interaction with attendees and customers is more cost-effective and integrated. Today, a staggering 90% of scientists prefer online meeting and video conferencing systems due to the ever growing world of social media.>>

JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

I have created this new blog to curate social media for scientists. They can use social media not only to make and teach science,but also to share and communicate your research. Engagement in social media provides scientists with an opportunity to be considered a thought leader.

 

Alan Alda: 

“if scientists could communicate more in their own voices—in a familiar tone, with a less specialized vocabulary—would a wide range of people understand them better? Would their work be better understood by the general public, policy-makers, funders, and, even in some cases, other scientists?”

CLICK TITLE TO ACCESS PICTURE

 

BEFORE THE RIOT version 1 - The Vancouver Canucks Fan Zone along Georgia St. for Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final was captured at 5:46 pm on June 15, 2011. It is made up of 216 photos (12 across by 18 down) stitched together, taken over a 15-minute span, and is not supposed to represent a single moment in time. The final hi-res file is 69,394 X 30,420 pixels or 2,110 megapixels. Special thanks to Bonita Howard and CBC Real Estate.

JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

This picture (and its resolution) represents yet another aspect of what Jeff Jervis calls Publicness. Not only we are moving into an AORTA times (Always OnReal Time Access) we are also entering the publicness era (transparency, oppenness, and collaboration).

 

Jeff Jarvis: Public Parts--Sharing in the digital age http://buzzmachine.com/publicparts/

http://buzzmachine.com/2010/09/26/the-benefits-of-publicness/

 

When we are on the streets and even at home we are public personas. The key, I think is authenticity (being truthful and authentic, if you are not people will find it out quickly). Room to hide has shrunk to infinitesimal proportions.

 

Bear this in mind when you go out (and when you stay inside).
