8 Tips to Enhance Your Online Privacy

8 Tips to Enhance Your Online Privacy | Beer specialist. Freelance tv fanatic. Coffeeaholic. Travel guru. Passionate internet scholar. | Scoop.it

Everybody wants a measure of privacy. As some experts on the topic have pointed out, even those who declare they have "nothing to hide" generally have curtains on the windows of their homes and don't invite everybody over to have a look at their credit card statements.

...

Even nation-states are taking the Luddite approach in some cases. Just recently, it was reported that the Russian equivalent of the U.S. Secret Service is using typewriters again, to avoid generating digital copies of highly sensitive documents.

But experts say there are ways both individuals and businesses can remain in the wired world and at least make it difficult for anyone, including the government, to monitor their activities. Those who are really serious about it will have to take some time-consuming and in some cases complicated steps to do so. The following list includes some of the more common recommendations.

Think-Know Tools, an online course presented by Howard Rheingold

"

Think-know Tools dives into both the theoretical-historical background of intellect augmentation and the practical skills of personal knowledge management. Now that we have access to powerful mind-amplifying devices and self-evolving collective intelligence networks, we can benefit ourselves and improve the commons by learning how knowledge technologies work and how to work them:

Modules on Roots & Visions of Augmentation and The Extended Mind establish a conceptual-theoretical-empirical basis for understanding and discussing both the origin and future of tools specifically devised to magnify thinking capabilities and group problem-solving capacity.Modules on Social Bookmarking, Concept Mapping, and Personal Knowledge Management introduce practical tools and practices for finding, storing, refining, sharing, exploring knowledge.Learning activities include group bookmarking as focused collective intelligence, concept map-making for understanding systems, construction of knowledge-plexes with Personal Brain."

Webinar explores tips, advice as most states adopt the common standards

 

As states move toward implementing the Common Core State Standards, school principals must ensure they are fully equipped to help classroom teachers incorporate the standards as effectively as possible.

 

Not our old standards - “Average isn’t good enough,” said Mel Riddile, associate director for high school services with the National Association of Secondary School Principals and a former high school administrator.

Opportunity brings challenges - “Those of us who have really worked to increase the number of college- and career-ready students, see this as the best opportunity we’ve had in a long time, and with that opportunity comes challenges.”

Major Shift - The Common Core effort is causing a “major shift” in the education conversation, Riddile said, because it will force educators and administrators to measure something different and new.

Second-Order Change - “This is about a second order change—we have to learn new skills, new habits, and new behaviors. We have to unlearn what bad habits we have,” he said.

Standards, Classroom, School - School leaders must know what their school’s teachers know about the standards, and they must be knowledgeable about what needs to be done in the classroom as well as what must be done on a building level.

Culture Change - “This is a big culture change for schools,” Riddile said. School principals will need vision, focus, and a positive mindset as the process continues.

Implementation is the key - “The fidelity of implementation of these standards is going to be the ‘make it or break it’ issue,” Riddile said.

Leaders Grow Leaders - “We’ll have to collaborate [and] share leadership throughout the school; leaders are going to have to grow more leaders … and build the collective capacity of our staff.”

Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web

Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web | Beer specialist. Freelance tv fanatic. Coffeeaholic. Travel guru. Passionate internet scholar. | Scoop.it

"Jonah Peretti, a co-founder of Huffington Post and CEO of Buzzfeed, said at PandoMonthly tonight in New York that he doesn’t care about SEO anymore. He views it as a broken system that optimizes for robots, not humans." Erin Griffith reports on Pandodaily.

 

“Media and content are human businesses, and it’s a problem for humans to give so much power to Google, which is a robot” he said.

 

Without saying Google is Skynet and evil, more and more people now see the flaws compared to what information networks like Twitter can produce (not saying the latter is perfect either). His conclusion is that you shouldn't care about SEO anymore but I think there's an even more compelling reason to move to Curation. Google is increasingly taking social signals into account so that Social is becoming the new SEO no matter which angle you take it from:

- whether because your audience will find you first on social networks

- whether because your content will be well positioned in Search results because human curators will pick it up (and therefore Google too).

 

The debate whether SEO still matters or not is not important. What's relevant is that great content that please human genuine interests will surface more than it used to thanks to the work of human curators.

The Hacking Article (IHE blog by Tracy Mitrano)

The Hacking Article (IHE blog by Tracy Mitrano) | Beer specialist. Freelance tv fanatic. Coffeeaholic. Travel guru. Passionate internet scholar. | Scoop.it

Sometimes what is most interesting about attention to an issue is not the attention itself but what it spurs and stimulates subsequently.  That has been my experience since the NYT published the article about hacking on university networks. Discussion within Cornell and on national list services raises a number of questions and illuminates aspects of our work that may not have been present to us in such bold relief.  Here are some specifics:

A couple of CIOs and a few security specialists found “hyperbole” in the article.  I am not exactly sure what they mean by that term but here are some thoughts of my own.  This issue for colleges and universities is not new, for sure!  We have been addressing it financially, administratively, technically and collectively for at least ten years now.  Mark Luker, when Vice President at EDUCAUSE, created working groups, the SECURITY list service and Security Professionals Conference that remain living examples of that effort.  Together with Jack Suess, they also formed the Internet2/EDUCAUSE Security Task Force that provided valuable guidance and resources for colleges and universities around the country.  Moreover, that collaboration has morphed into the Cloud Alliance that supports the important work that Net+ is doing.  It just might be that some CIOs and IT Security experts who have been tending these vines for a long time now are surprised that the issue is raised as if it were new.   So granted, it is not new, but it remains important.

It is important because it touches on three larger policy issues...

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, July 1, 2013 11:57 PM

In the choice between creating poor content and curating great ideas, you must know by now where I stand.


Sure, I also like to create content - hopefully great content - but either because I'm getting older or realistic, I've stopped believing that I could always create great stuff and perhaps more importantly that I could be more useful and impacting by making other people's awesomness more visible.


As Clair's rant on Business Insider points out, the constraint smart people, brands or businesses should have is NOT to create a ton of content regardless of its quality but to publish only GOOD content regardless of whether they created it or curated it.


What will your choice be?

Cet article reflète mon point de vue sur l'avenir du community/content management : un besoin de dire plus en parlant moins, sous peine de nous noyer nous-même et nos interlocuteurs dans un océan de contenus, posts, tweets etc.

Beppe Andrianò's curator insight, July 2, 2013 7:34 AM

Questo vale a maggior ragione per quanti operano con la comunicazione al fine di far conoscere meglio i propri prodotti o servizi o come nel caso dell'associaizone nel voler far conoscere una tecnologia, soluzione od opportunità. La creazione di contenuti originali non è solo premiante ai fini di un miglior posizionamento su google ma anche perchè offre la possiblità di farsi conoscere e riconoscere per la propria competenza specifica.

Quindi investite comunque un poco del vostro tempo a raccontare cosa avete fatto e come lo avete fatto perchè sarà sicuramente tempo investito nel vostro futuro professionale ed aziendale.

Hi gdecugis! Thank you for your ansewer. My problem with Buffer is that I don't see the way you can create/edit the title of the post. When you see published post on Facebook, it's a block of text without title. This is against my undersatnding of content publishing. I will never read a block of text If I don't know what's about... will you?
Guillaume Decugis's comment, September 21, 2012 12:50 PM
But you can change the title of the post on Scoop.it: that's what Buffer will publish on Facebook then. And you can add your own Facebook comment on top like you would for any Facebook post. If you don't, there might be a specific issue with your account that we'd be happy to look at (send us a screenshot via http://feedback.scoop.it). It works fine on our end and behaves just like standard Facebook sharing but let us know if we have to fix something. Thanks!

Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect | KurzweilAI | Beer specialist. Freelance tv fanatic. Coffeeaholic. Travel guru. Passionate internet scholar. | Scoop.it

n Social, renowned psychologist Matthew Lieberman explores groundbreaking research in social neuroscience revealing that our need to connect with other people is even more fundamental, more basic, than our need for food or shelter.  Because of this, our brain uses its spare time to learn about the social world – other people and our relation to them. It is believed that we must commit 10,000 hours to master a skill.  According to Lieberman, each of us has spent 10,000 hours learning to make sense of people and groups by the time we are ten.

Social argues that our need to reach out to and connect with others is a primary driver behind our behavior.
