Feedolu is in public BETA from September 5th. It is an RSS feed reader that makes it easily to read, organize and share content.
Excerpt from review article by Shelly Kramer on V3 Blog: "Feedolu uses advanced feed reading technology and combines that with social features commonly used on sites like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Feedolu users will have a public profile with their own URL (feedolu.com/username). You can customize your background, create a bio and attach a link to a website (like Twitter) and website RSS feed as well. When a user attaches an RSS feed to their profile, other users can then go and subscribe to that RSS feed, giving that user the opportunity of increased website traffic via subscriptions.
Here are key features: - User Following; - SEO; - Unlimited Feeds and Feed Walls; - Back-End Processing.
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.
"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?

Use social media to make and teach science, and to share and communicate your research. Engagement in social media provides you with an opportunity to be considered a thought leader. It's a new world out there!
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.
“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?”
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.

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).
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).
