April 2012 Cyber Attacks Timeline (Part I) CISPA « Hackmageddon.com | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

As usual, here is the list of the main cyber attacks for April 2012. A first half of the month which has been characterized by hacktivism, although the time of the resounding attacks seems so far away. Also because, after the arrest of Sabu, the law enforcement agencies (which also were targeted during this month, most of all in UK), made two further arrests of alleged hackers affiliated to the Anonymous Collective: W0rmer, member of CabinCr3w, and two possible members of the infamous collective @TeaMp0isoN.

Rethinking intelligence basis for economic managerial

Rethinking intelligence basis for economic managerial | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

THE CIRCLE. For 20 years, a very French concept - became discipline - is spreading slowly in the corporate culture: that of "economic intelligence". For many, the sport-concept remains fuzzy, halfway between "competitive intelligence" Anglo-Saxon and practical intelligence. In fact, it covers a managerial component of the urgent update.

Librarianship Is a Global Profession... If You Want It to Be, by Jan Holmquist

Librarianship Is a Global Profession... If You Want It to Be, by Jan Holmquist | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it
RT @janholmquist: It Is a Global Profession...

Jan Holmquist:

"One of the things I have learned about this profession in recent years (but wish I had known when I was brand new to libraries) is that it is in fact a global profession. The economy is global, information is global, and a lot of (popular) culture is global too. It makes sense, then, that the people navigating all of this are part of a global profession too."

[...]

"I have been involved in projects with people from all over the globe. Right now a library is being built in India crowdfunded by librarians from all over the world via Buy India a Library project. Another crowdfunding project with a worldwide team, Help This Week in Libraries, made a huge difference for that knowledge sharing library show. I am working on another global project with an American librarian right now. I can’t share details just yet, but you will hear more soon."

Keeping and Deleting Patron Records in Law Libraries » VoxPopuLII

Keeping and Deleting Patron Records in Law Libraries » VoxPopuLII | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Benjamin Keele:

"As researchers use materials in libraries, their actions tend to generate records—research trails in digital databases, lists of borrowed books, and correspondence with librarians. Most of the time, these records are innocuous, but to facilitate freedom of inquiry, librarians generally hold these records as confidential. This confidentiality is especially important in law libraries because legal matters can be very sensitive and stressful. Researchers implicitly trust librarians with at least hints of concerns the researchers would prefer not be generally known. If researchers knew any records of their questions could become known to others, some researchers would avoid using library collections or asking librarians for advice, guidance that very well may help them find valuable information.

In her interesting post, Meg Leta points out that, despite some exhortations that information on Web lasts forever, most information now online will disappear at some point. Websites go down when their owners fail to pay hosting fees. Data is deleted, either by purpose or mistake. A file sitting on a drive or disc will, without maintenance, eventually becomes inaccessible because the storage media has decayed or because the hardware and software needed to read the file has become obsolete. Since information will tend to vanish without action on our part, Leta suggests we should instead focus on actively saving information that is worth keeping.

Leta makes an excellent point, but I’d suggest that in addition to thinking carefully about what information needs to be kept, legal professionals also should consider whether certain types of information warrant purposeful destruction. I’d also suggest that for law libraries, patrons should be given the ability to retain, either through the library or themselves, records of their use of library resources."

News Isn't Just About Information. Now It's Also Storytelling | ReadWriteWeb

News Isn't Just About Information. Now It's Also Storytelling | ReadWriteWeb | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:

 

THE PROBLEMS:

"..."We need to rethink every facet of the journalism model," said Richard Gingras, VP of News at Google.

 

The news audience is evolving faster than news providers. By now, 75% of traffic is going to stories. A minority of visitors ever see a site's front-page curated presentation of the news.

 

But the problems go deeper than just presentation. News is a commodity now. It spreads virally across many media through new tellings and retellings. The Web is finally real-time.

News organizations no longer get to control the story. They have to do more than inform to stay relevant. News sites have to be useful.

 

THE SOLUTIONS:

To be useful, news sites need to be information tools, not just sources. Journalists are the people with the time and skills to gather all the needed information into one place and filter out the rest.

But the value of information is not just in the knowledge of it; it's in what you can do with it.

 

News isn't just about information. It's also storytelling. Anyone can publish text, photos or even video to the Web now. But technology enables new, compelling storytelling techniques that could shine in the hands of dedicated news organizations..."
