      psychological safety!

    2. Where you should enforce high-quality writing is broad or upwards communication, because there clarity is more important than speed and ideation.

      clarity > speed & ideation

    3. It forces us to be more precise than in verbal communication and thus leads to clearer thinking.
    1. Why question also need a context. We have to limit with things that we want to know. Have some emphaty with the person who want to provide the answer of your why.

      Context is key

    1. To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (LEFAS Fashion GmbH, Heckmannufer 3, 10997 Berlin, Germany, hello@wayks.com) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail).

    1. I reckon that it was: less a communication failure more a failure to pay attention – no disrespect intended. Given the unfortunate coincidence, it's almost entirely understandable that everyone concerned lost sight of Mozilla's forewarning.

    2. According to the Harvard Business Review article “Collaborative Overload”, the time employees spend on collaboration has increased by 50% over the past two decades. Researchers found it was not uncommon for workers to spend a full 80% of their workdays communicating with colleagues in the form of email (on which workers’ spend an average of six hours a day); meetings (which fill up 15 percent of a company’s time, on average); and more recently instant messaging apps (the average Slack user sends an average of 200 messages a day, though 1,000-message power users are “not the exception”)

    1. The word "passphrase" is used to convey the idea that a password, which is a single word, is far too short to protect you and that using a longer phrase is much better.
    1. terms like "malicious security cracker" are sufficiently evocative and clear that their use actually helps make communication more effective than the common journalistic misuse of "hacker".
    2. The more easily relabeled of the two uses of the term "hacker" is the malicious security cracker: it is not only the more recent phenomenon to acquire that label, but also the one whose meaning is most easily evoked by an alternative term. This is why, when you read an article of mine that talks about malicious security crackers, I use the term "malicious security cracker"
    3. When two different phenomena acquire the same label, as in the case of hackers in the classic sense on one hand and malicious security crackers on the other, either something has to give or discussion is bound to suffer from confusion that could easily have been avoided.
    4. Maintaining distinct terms for distinct phenomena is an important aspect of communication
    1. Email is not considered a secure communications channel. You have no idea if your email is encrypted when it's sent between mail providers nor is it a suitable secure storage facility
    1. Comme dans leurs relations humaines, les gens ont des rapports avec leur technologie qui peuvent être sécurisants, anxieux, évitants ou une combinaison (souvent désorganisée) des trois.

      Cela peut créer des problèmes futures, des personnes qui ne sont confortable seulement avec des personnes virtuelles, qu'ils peuvent dans un sens "controller". S'en suivra une génération incapable de communiquer dans la realité. Correctement utilisé, la technologie permet néanmoins de garder certains liens sociaux et des les renforcer.

    1. According to the Shannon–Weaver(1947) model, the communication process begins with information selected by a “source”; thatis, a transmitter codes the information so that it is suitable for transmission over a channel.The information then flows through a channel until it arrivesat a “receiver” and is decoded.

      As a psychology major, I think it is very important to address that communication is a lot more than just putting a message out there. In today's world, people seem to forget that communication also involves your audience, the way your message is perceived, and the response that it gets. This is where ethics become important because yes, we have freedom of speech, but when communicating we have to consider how our freedom must have limits in order for it to be ethical based purely on how communication works

    1. When we go back and forth three times, we jump on a synchronous video call.
    2. Don't Underestimate a 1:1. Asynchronous communication (e.g., via text) is helpful and necessary. In some cases (e.g., to clarify misunderstandings) it can be much more effective to jump on a Zoom video call.
    3. Slack messages should be considered asynchronous communication, and you should not expect an instantaneous response; you have no idea what the other person is doing.
    4. just ask the question directly, and the person will respond asynchronously. If you truly need to have a synchronous communication, then start by asking for that explicitly, while mentioning the subject. e.g., "I'm having trouble understanding issue #x, can we talk about it quickly?"
    5. Always reply to emails by replying to all, even when no action is needed. This lets the other person know that you received it. A thread is done when there is a single word reply, such as OK, thanks, or done.
    1. There are at least six elements in Marx’s works that are of key relevance for understanding communications today (Fuchs, 2016b; Fuchs and Mosco, 2016a, 2016b):(1) Praxis communication: Marx was not just a critical political economist but also a critical journalist and polemicist, whose writing style can inspire critical thought today.(2) Global communication: Marx stressed the connection of communication technol-ogy and globalization. In an age, where there are lots of talk about both the Internet and globalization, we should remind ourselves that technology-mediated globalization has had a longer history.(3) Dialectical philosophy: Marx elaborated a critical theory of technology that is based on dialectical logic. Dialectical philosophy can help us to avoid one-sided analyses of the media (Fuchs, 2014c).(4) Class analysis: Marx stressed the relevance of the connection of labour, value, commodities and capital. He analysed modern society as a class society. Focusing on class today can counter the positivism of analyses of society as information society, net-work society, knowledge-based society, post-industrial society and so on.(5) Crisis and social struggles: Marx described class struggle and crisis as factors in the historical dynamics of class societies. Class structures and struggles are in complex ways reflected on and entangled into mediated communication.(6) Alternatives: Marx envisioned alternatives to capitalism and domination. Given capitalist crisis and monopoly control of social media today, it is important to envision alternatives to capitalism and capitalist social media.
    1. Just as importantly, it means you can send messages to anyone, anytime without earning a reputation for interrupting people.

      Very important to point out this side of the benefit of this feature too!

    2. Holmberg's (1989) theory of distance education, what he calls "guid-ed didactic conversation," falls into the general category ofcommunication theory. Holmberg noted that his theory had explanatoryvalue in relating teaching effectiveness to the impact of feelings ofbelonging and cooperation as well as to the actual exchange of ques-tions, answers, and arguments in mediated communication

      Holmberg proposed theory

    3. Theory of Interaction and Communication


    1. It’s very difficult to talk about something you cannot see or touch, yet we are obliged to do so, since global warming affects us all.

      It's also difficult to interact with those things when we're missing the words and vocabulary to talk about them intelligently.

    1. where we were communicating less formally with each other and with the doctor. The best thing about slack is that we are allowed to create different channels for specific topics like ‘Soliya’ and others like ‘Random’ where we were allowed to send random messages about random subjects or thing that you want to share with the group that isn’t related to anything we’re doing in the course. In addition, it also allowed us to send private messages to the doctor where she answered in a very short time and also to others with us in class

      Slack bridges the communication gap between the Ss and the professor outside the classroom unlike the limitations of emailing and its formality giving unlimited chances of discussing any matter
