Hey, Robin sorry to hear of the "huge evidence" you're observing, even among TOP bloggers & curators, to make clear and obvious reference to original sources. Glad, though, to think of this as a "unique advantage" to me! Keep up the good work, Robin!
Laura Brown's comment, April 11, 2013 11:11 AM
@Ron - One of the things I like about content curation at Scoop.it is that the images are clickable to take you to the content. So are the headlines and the link is in small print too, listed as the source. So, there are three ways to get back to the source of the content. I try to do the same on my own sites when I curate content or reference someone else. I hadn't really thought about the link at the end of the post being more or less visible. But, I think you are right. It should stand out more than it often does.
Andreas Kuswara's comment, April 17, 2013 9:05 PM
maybe rather than placing the link at the bottom, instead placing it on the top. like Scoop.it, placing it straight next to the title.

Designing User Interfaces for Your Mother

Designing User Interfaces for Your Mother | Web 2 Affordances | Scoop.it
Takeaways for keeping your interface friendly to the friendliest of people you know. Your mother. It's interesting that we might accidentally alienate someone without realizing it through the design choices we make; of course there is an argument that the other group of people actually like new changes. Then the problem become balance and week to sacrifice for the good of many. Not to long ago we starting to have a responsive design concept and technology to implement it. But that responsiveness ironically only respond to the various devices (or screen size) rather than various user and their different needs. Maybe if we can add the human layer on top of the device layer fixing the kind of responsiveness that is now meaningful to more people. This can get exciting ... for all of us.

Public Inclusive Infrastructure, Using the Cloud to Improve Access for the Disabled

Andreas Kuswara's insight:

wow, a brave initiative i must say, will require extremely fast data and need to reach enough critical mass before it becomes useful.

 

curious why not storing it on the portable device, that can be attached to the person instead? smart wrist watch maybe? or NFC enabled mobile phone, which can interact with any devices in close proximity, and use a universal and uniform mark-up language to upgrade the devices and interfaces to comply with the standard, and how to handle if it's not.

 

the mark-up language can be expanded to cover different kind of disability, and create a tool to run assessment on existing system match up against set of standards. that way things can be more distributed and thus not burden single entity to make all things work.

 

anyway.. still exciting concept.

Abha Dawesar: Life in the "digital now"

One year ago, Abha Dawesar was living in blacked-out Manhattan post-Sandy, scrounging for power to connect.
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

"The abstract digital universe becomes part of our identity"; IMHO interesting reflection and argument. Do you agree? Moment & flow of time influence our identity; how time, or at least the sensation of time differ between digital and physical world.

 

Sounds a more philosophical argument about what once simply known as “information overflow” in the time and era where the networked-computer deliver only information and data; but these days they already evolved into smart handheld or wearable devices, which deliver much more and deeper meaning and sensations for humans.

 

Good or bad? Don’t know, but we certainly becomes more dependent to them and at the same time overwhelmed by them in an ever increasing pace. As the speaker said, “the digital world cannibalized time”. Rather harsh conclusion, but I think she has a point there.

The new game sees players do battle via smartphones as they roam their city – but it's paving the way for something even more interesting certainly interesting how the social aspect of the Internet can be used as both entertainment and data gatherings at exactly the same time. One could be taking part in two completely different activities, taking the role of two completely different subjects, while using the same accordance of technology. Both activities can be executed simultaneously. This is similar logic with capcha (did I spell that right), which merged authentication with digitization of text books. Would be interesting to see what new innovation can be conjured from this ever increasingly connected society.

Larry Page: Where's Google going next?

Andreas Kuswara's insight:

Keep pushing the Technological Horizon, exciting technological development; I think he foreshadowed a bit about semantic web. Also interesting to hear his philosophical views; some of the fundamental notion of corporation, or even the economic relationship within a professional field, could be shifted to the better if more people think like him. I don’t personally know him obviously, but interesting to hear.

 

I think the video’s title is slightly misleading; he didn’t actually talk specific about Google, but more about the future of technology development. Probably deliberately, but IMHO definitely more interesting to hear.

“with great power comes great responsibility” (Uncle Ben, Spiderman*) sometimes we wander, with the internet, so much freedom given, how much of mankind exercise this freedom with restraint and responsibility? In a way it can be seen as a challenge to the pre-assumption of “wisdom of the crowd”. does the crowd always right? --- IMHO we need at least common sense and sound judgement.

Keeping Teens ‘Private’ on Facebook Won’t Protect Them

Keeping Teens ‘Private’ on Facebook Won’t Protect Them | Web 2 Affordances | Scoop.it
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

It's certainly an interesting discourse in this space. Personally I don't support one and against the other in this particular argument. Although i might have my own personal preferences. Assuming both sides have good intention, I can understand the concern and passion of both side.


However the idea that one part of the coming of age is to navigate the complex social interaction; and online venue (such as Facebook) has become part of our social reality of today, thus younger people need to experience navigating this as part of their natural process of becoming mature, is interesting.


We drew parallel between one venue over the other (i.e. online vs offline) and then suggest or conclude what's appropriate and not by comparing them with established and accepted norm. However, we have to be careful and probably critical to ensure that we are drawing a fair comparison. When teen is getting mature, they have to meet or encounter strangers and have to negotiate how to interact with them, gauge the situation, and decide what appropriate course of actions needed, and learn (i.e. rewarded and punished by themselves) of the consequences.


Facebook or Google+ and any other social networks offer the same affordance, but we don't call them straight as "friend". the calling of all connection as "friend" suggest a more intimate relationship, Google+ used a less emotional name, "connection", i think that is actually is more appropriate; rather than calling them "friend" then placing them in a friend list called "stranger". We also don't get to know that "acquaintance" by sharing our personal diary, instead we simply communicate with them, and explore their interest share ideas, challenge ideas, etc some will end up as "friend" or even more intimate relationship, others remain as "acquaintance", or end up as a "stranger" again.


I think not many online social network available today that allow such dynamic, probably none of them started with such deep thinking about social dynamic anyway, that is okay, but the concern is that as the number of users grow, they (the providers of this networks) have not matured their network to allow such rich and complex social dynamic. the less mature the social network is, the less accommodating to this complexity.


if everyone is by default share thoughts, openly share pictures, able to see each other diary, can easily listen to anyone pouring out of the content of their heart, and be called as friends; maybe we should not compare that social network with the public, but compare it to a sleepover. would you want your teenager to have a sleepover with a complete stranger that can go through their diary read everything, go through their drawers and see everything? -- when we understand the affordances of these technologies, and draw the appropriate analogies and comparison. the line between black and white can be less blur in this age where a bit clarity can make a big difference.

Multi-Screen World Study (2012) | Google

Multi-Screen World Study (2012) | Google | Web 2 Affordances | Scoop.it
From smartphones and tablets to laptops and television, 90% of all media interactions today are screen-based. Read the study.
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

The usage of tablet is still 63% for entertainment, and only 32% for communication; 79% used them at home; while only 21% using the tablet out of home; (the data probably skewed towards Android devices, since it’s coming from Google), this seems to be the argument used by some people working in that industry to say mobile learning is only occur through smartphones, while tablet allow only eLearning. Personally I think the separation of the two is rather irrelevant, but I can understand where they are coming from.

 

Also, Google think that people move back and forth between mobile and tablet, people switch as they move from home to on the go, to the work/school and again on the go and back at home. So, if that is so, then our mobile learning solution needs to address both smartphone and tablet form factor at the same time.

 

But I am sceptical if the recent data from CSU mLearn project indicating that we still have access issue for our students to the mobile devices (at least in rural area); if not all of them have at least one device, let alone having both. If the ecosystem only has one device, would it be efficient and effective? Or should we push or help to push students to have both devices?

 

Slide 15 is interesting, that the perception of people against the different devices (smartphone and tablet); we perceive different affordance, and thus we set ourselves to do different type of learning when we are interacting through smartphone vs. through tablet.

 

Slide 20, 21 and 22 are also interesting, this might influence the way we structure the menu within our different screen. Although the figure within the slides itself might be not relevant for university and HEIs, but we might need to take notice about the behaviour of multi-screening of our students.

 

In the daily life, smartphones are preferred since its small size, thus, we tend to have them within our reach, causing us to reach out and grab them (they always on, always connected) when we want to search something on the snap. How much this will relevant to our students’ usage in their learning? Do they learn things on the snap? Probably not majority of our students (or of any students anywhere) have such a high eagerness to learn that they just quickly grab their phone every now and then since they want to learn.
