What’s the future of Twitter? 

Twitter stock has recently suffered as a result of weak earnings (and related confidence), so I've been reflecting on the value I place in it versus Facebook. Everyone's surely different, but I figure one way for me to assess it is to evaluate the differences between the list of my Facebook friends and the accounts …

Will Educators Own the Future? 

Likely not. I just finished reading Jaron Lanier's 'Who Owns the Future?'—about a year after the rest of the world, it turns out—and I'm not optimistic. It was an excellent read, especially due to Lanier's broad experience with technologies and his interest in economics. He offers educators a lot to think about, such as: …

App-xploitation? 

New evidence that I should stop using Apple devices: Apple Now Owns the Page Turn - NYTimes.com. But, if they didn't do it, wouldn't someone else? Let's reform patent law... even more!

Selling Magic, Not Technology 

"Magical" seems to be the best way to describe technology products in 2010. Behold Apple's iPad: And now Google, upon launching Instant Search, claims that their search tool "should feel like magic" (0:16). Should technology feel like magic? According to the Oxford American Dictionary, magic is "the power of apparently influencing the course of events …

Changing Teaching with Learning.com 

"You are innovators" is the message to the teachers at Learning.com's second annual professional development workshop in Portland, Oregon. I'm attending the workshop to learn more about their really interesting new software, Sky. I'm also interested to learn if their message to teachers is accurate, a wishful prediction, a hyperbolic marketing strategy, or something else. Working alongside teachers …

The new low cost of exchanging knowledge 

David Dean, founder of Yamisee, gave a great talk about this new, e-learning tool at a EdLab today: Yamisee is a live online learning platform that creates an entirely new marketplace for teachers and subject matter experts to share their knowledge. Much in the way eBay connects buyers with sellers, Yamisee connects independent experts with …

Building a better institutional archive 

"How do you make an institutional archive more social?" This question was put forth by EdLab in early 2006. It's kind of a strange question – it makes more sense if you consider how "Web 2.0" had settled in as a useful framework in our collective imagination. We faced the task of creating a digital …

A virtual exhibition that makes you want more 

I haven't been to the MOMA in a while, but I just found the James Ensor Exhibition website which more or less offers a 'virtual' version of the show (and serves as a rich online ad). I felt it gave me a ton of information, and also made me want to go to the real …

After Ed TV is launched 

After Ed TV is the new home of EdLab's nascent web video channel. We designed this site to serve as an archive of past episodes, but also as a destination for upcoming promotional efforts. Our primary goal at this point is to see if we can get other organizations to post our multi-video player on …

Sociable media development with MIT 

MIT's Sociable Media Group looks like an interesting bunch of people. I like the Webbed Footnotes project, where one can "annotate web pages with comments and can read and reply to the annotations left by others." I think the existence of groups just like this one suggest a course of action for EdLab's software development …
