Talking About Online Privacy 

Very interesting!


Reposted from Learning at the Library. Written by juliamarden.

We've been talking about online privacy a lot recently, with the latest news about the NSA mining our phone and internet records. It's raised some important questions that need to be answered, not just as individuals, but as librarians and educators: How much privacy do we want to sacrifice for access to information, convenience, or …

Deconstruct this (Mr. President) 

I appreciate my friend Chris Moffett's commentary on Ravitch's troubled past and future.


Reposted from Splitting Skulls. Written by Chris Moffett.

Diane Ravitch, in Education Week:  "Does President Obama Know What Race to the Top Is?" "Deconstruct this," she says. Granted, Ravitch is at least more interesting since her about-face. And pointing out the irony/hypocrisy of Presidential rhetoric in the face of policy is perhaps a good start. And her grasp of the territory situates …

World of 100 

Information about the world as if it were a village of 100 people -- a simple design and a powerful effect. Nice work Toby Ng!


Reposted from The Data Art Review. Written by Jihii Jolly.

Even when statistics are clearly represented as visuals, understanding data is difficult. We're not so naturally inclined to to understand statistics in relation to our personal, daily lives. An emerging method of providing people with the tools to achieve that contextual understanding is through interactive graphics, such as the 9/11+ME project (which uses Facebook or …

Check This Out: Ethnocharettes 

This is an interesting example of "design" being an inspiration for a day-long collaborative event. Interesting in many ways, but especially for the marathon-like duration. (It seems like it might not have been worth it . . .)


Reposted from Learning at the Library. Written by ten.

For those interested in developing courses that integrate ethnographic methodologies and social theory with the modeling practices of designers I suggest checking out the innovative work of the University of California Irvine's Center for Ethnography.

We'll be implementing another instance of Pressible with special features to support the discussions that unfold in the classroom. Have any ideas for us?

“Do young artists need older practitioners to look at them with something benign, giving them permission to try? Yes, yes, that’s essential,” remarks Bill T. Jones, on the importance of mentoring. The Tony award-winning choreographer is a member of a cluster of great artists (including Placido Domingo, Frank Gehry and Edward Albee) who mentored select …

A Paywall for the New York Times 

A nice summary by Pamela of the NYTimes paywall debate. I am very interested in how this will play out—to see if the current price point will work for the Times, if they'll ride this into the ground (laying off staff, etc.), or relent as Ruaridh imagines (see first comment).
