Good distribution insight for content marketing and blogging. If your terrific content doesn't get shared or doesn't get results, your effort has been wasted.

Community as Canvas: Do Intelligent Communities Save Souls? | digital communities

Community as Canvas: Do Intelligent Communities Save Souls? | digital communities | Social Communities | Scoop.it

The Intelligent Community Forum would like to thank everyone who sent messages of concern, called and offered assistance during Sandy’s assault on our home. It is good to know that we have so many friends and followers everywhere. Your email or voice was a pleasant relief. I am proud to say that our offices were open the day after the storm, and with the exception of our Randall Barney, who was still without power in New Jersey as of today, we were mainly inconvenienced, while our Internet connections never went down. (Randy somehow has made it into the office every day since the storm. Such is his commitment to excellence. )

 

The days before the storm were eventful, but in a more positive way. Robert and John were in Moscow and Europe respectively promoting the movement. On 21 October I was in Riverside, California to announce the world’s new Smart21. These 21 communities are now under study and in contention to succeed Riverside as Intelligent Community of the Year. This year’s Smart21 is a somewhat eclectic group. Surprises include a handful of really small communities, as well as some firsts: the first Intelligent Community in Albania and our first from New Zealand. You can read more about them on the website.

 

I left Riverside with the city’s Chief Innovation Officer, Steve Reneker, and Dr. Rick Miller, Superintendent of Riverside Unified School District, in tow. We converged far from the San Bernardino mountains and orange trees of the Inland Empire at the ICF Institute for the Study of the Intelligent Community on the Ohio campus of Walsh University. There, a symposium named after our new book and in honor of Riverside, “Seizing Our Destiny,” brought ICF’s mission to a new level.

 

North Canton, Ohio (USA) is not the first place you think of when you think of the Intelligent Community movement. However, it is precisely the type place where the re-energizing of communities is emerging.

Building Digital Communities: Pilot | webjunction.org

Building Digital Communities: Pilot | webjunction.org | Social Communities | Scoop.it

With one in five Americans not using the internet and online interactions becoming a daily necessity of individuals and organizations, communities are recognizing the importance of taking action to increase digital inclusion. Libraries, local government and non-profit organizations are often the leaders of local digital inclusion efforts. Building Digital Communities: Pilot is a project isupporting and documenting the work of nine pilot communities to increase the access and use of digital technologies. The work is based upon Building Digital Communities: A Framework for Action created by IMLS, the University of Washington and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).

 

Building Digital Communities: Getting Started is a how-to resource for communities activity planning and implementing digital inclusion so that all community members can take advantage of digital technologies. The Framework and Getting Started are designed to engage all sectors—libraries, city/county managers, community-based organizations (CBOs), and other stakeholders—to form coalitions and make strategic decisions to increase access to broadband and adoption of digital technologies. Building Digital Communities: Pilot relies upon the strategies defined in the Framework and Getting Started to support the nine pilot communities. In order to further the knowledge base of how communities become more digitally inclusive, we are posting lessons learned and digital inclusion planning resources. Each of the ten pilot communities is represented by a coalition of a library, a local government and a community-based organization.

Will the personalised Web destroy discovery?

Will the personalised Web destroy discovery? | Social Communities | Scoop.it

While the personalised web has potential, it will only really work if we have an actual, human element behind it, surfacing the best content or influencing an ad algorithm based on expertise and experience.

If we consciously mix our information filters will the resulting bubbles surface new content or get in the way of serendipitous discovery?

Suuntaus, mille ei voi mitään?

Great question, I miss having things pop up that I had never seen before. That is the joy and wonder of the internet.
