Why the PROTECT IP / SOPA Bill Is Bad for the Internet [Video Infographic]

Curators Key Requirement: Critical Thinking

Robin Good: Critical thinking is a key strategic skill needed by any serious professional curator. 

 

"Critical thinking provides the keys for our own intellectual independence..." and it helps to move away from "rashy conclusions, mystification and reluctance to question received wisdom, authority and tradition" while learning how to adopt "intellectual discipline" and a way to express clearly ideas while taking personal responsibility for them.

 

Key takeaways from this video:

 

Critical thinking refers to a diverse range of intellectual skills and activities concerned with "evaluating information" as well as our own thought in a disciplined way.
  Critical thinking is not just thinking a lot. To be an effective critical thinker you need to seek out and be guided by "knowledge" and "evidence" that fits with reality even if it refutes what the general consensus may want to believe.
  Critical thinkers cultivate an attitude of curiosity and they are willing to do the work required to keep themselves informed about a subject.
  Critical thinkers do not take claims at face value but utilize scepticism and doubt to suspend judgement and objectively evaluate with facts the claims being made.
  Critical thinkers should evaluate information on the basis of reasoning and not by relying on emotions as claims the factuality of a claim cannot be solely based on the level of emotion that accompanies them or the fact that they may be believed by certain groups.

 

Highly recommended for all curators. 9/10

Thank you for sharing this video and the importance of critical thinking. It is so easy to get into the mindless consumption trap and making ourselves slow down, read, think, question, and seek is so important. It is all about the resisting the urge to click, but to hit the pause button and make yourself think
Mayra Aixa Villar's comment, February 22, 2012 10:14 AM
Grazie come sempre, Robin! You always share valuable information and this video is a great source to reflect on the importance of critical thinking to refine thought processes when curating content. Content curation certainly requires and develops "better thinking".
Gregory Thackston's curator insight, March 17, 2013 4:54 PM

Critical thinking is a key component in addressing autonomous adversity and the need to collaborate in decision making.

The History of Marketing: An Exhaustive Timeline #Infographic

The History of Marketing: An Exhaustive Timeline #Infographic | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

By Corey Eridon

 

A detailed timeline Infographic featuring the history of marketing from 1450 to 2012.

...

Ever since people have had something to sell, we’ve been marketing. But the effectiveness of those marketing methods have waxed and waned over thousands of years, and as consumers and their technologies advanced at a more and more rapid pace, marketers have had to change their game.

 

At one time, cutting edge technology was limited to just a small segment of the population – and these advancements were slowly rolled out to the masses over decades (and even centuries!). Now, adoption rates are faster than the speed of light and more widespread than ever – and it’s putting control back in the hands of consumers. It’s up to marketers to keep pace in this cluttered, fast-paced world if they want their message heard. Through the lens of marketing history, watch how marketers are succeeding.

 

Take a look at how technology has changed the way marketers do their jobs, how consumers have responded (not always so favorably), and let us know where you think the future of marketing lies. As always, feel free to share and embed at your leisure!

Everything is a Remix: Part 4

Everything is a Remix episode 4, produced by Kirby Ferguson, a New York-based filmmaker.

 

"Our system of law doesn't acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries.

 

But ideas aren't so tidy. They're layered, they’re interwoven, they're tangled."

 

A must watch video experience.

Paula Correia's curator insight, April 22, 2013 11:30 AM

Tudo é um remix...

As nossas ideias são consideradas, do ponto de vista do Direito, como propriedade, como únicas e com limites bem definidos.

Será isso um MEME? .

( O meme , termo criado por Richard Dawkins é o análogo do gene na genética.  É uma unidade de evolução cultural que pode de alguma forma autopropagar-se. Podem ser ideias, línguas, sons, desenhos, capacidades, valores estéticos e morais, ou qualquer outra coisa que possa ser aprendida e transmitida.)

Project Cascade: The Secrets Of The Twitterverse Visualized [Video] | Co.Design | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

This is the work of Project Cascade, and both the mining of the data and the artistic presentation could go a long way toward solving the riddle of how a story goes viral. That could have major implications for newspapers trying to cope in the social-media age. 

 

“Our hypothesis has been and continues to be that those organizations that can be responsive to data in real time and make business decisions surrounding that data in real time will be the organizations that prosper in the 21st century.”

 

Thus was born journalism’s most ambitious social-media data viz to date, one that already offers some surprising insights into how stories propagate on the web.

Social brand awareness, social engagement, social advertising, social ROI – see the pattern?

Social is the way to go.

 

The power of social networks is that your clients are already there. A frequently updated Twitter account or Facebook page is a way to engage with them where they already hang out.

 

Promoting your business on social networks has numerous advantages – virality, cost-effectiveness and massive visibility, to name just a few.

 

This Infographic visualizes the reasons why social media should be a critical component in every business’ strategy.

 

If your business isn’t yet social-friendly, you’d want to start making changes after viewing this: - http://bit.ly/wvO8lc
