    1. By creating a curriculum that allows for problem-based inquiry learning, high-level discussion, and collaboration. One approach, Internet reciprocal teaching, involves problem-based tasks in which readers create their own text. This provides students a path for navigating the Cs of change.

      Problem-based learning to help teach 5 C's (creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and comprehension

    1. This process involves the following five phases:

      collaboratively identify interest and a question search and sift through information critically evaluate information (credibility and usefulness) Synthesize what they have learned from multimodal sources Online content construction

    1. The story’s charm disguises the invasion of privacy at its heart: the way technology is both eroding our personal boundaries and coercing us in deleterious ways.

      I can't agree more with this! This explains why some people would set their account in private.

    1. It took only a couple decades for the internet to transform from a weird underground hobby to an entirely new medium for the self. One of the earliest draws of internet society was the invitation to become someone else — to obscure the dull strains of your real life behind a veil of mysterious text or behind an avatar, the image or persona you create to represent you online. In those days, it often seemed like people had collectively assented to participate in some degree of fiction about one another. The person on your forum or in your channel who loved to say inflammatory things was just some troll; you could even assume that he wasn’t like that in real life. That these were only mechanisms specific to the character he lived as online.

      May be useful as comparison.

    1. At the end of the day, TikTok’s flawless algorithm will keep people hooked.

      Byte's flawed algorithm, or lack of one, will keep people hooked to TikTok.

    2. Byte, in contrast, flaunts its origins in the United States and emphasizes privacy. “Explore what’s loved by the community, handpicked by our human editors, or just served up at random,” its description reads.

      I feel like this is a naïve approach. If you decide to be in the business of social media, you need to fully commit to the standards of it, at least to start with. It's naïve to believe that you will be able to compete with such an "honest" approach, when everyone else isn't.

    3. Another issue people have with TikTok is its dependence on artificial intelligence (AI). Using AI technology, TikTok can figure out exactly what the user wants to see based on likes, comments and time spent on a video. Based on what the user appears to enjoy, AI can determine the user’s age, location, socioeconomic status and more. This allows the app to push more desired content. However, since the app pushes such specific content to each user, it’s addictive and invasive.

      Okay, but this is what ever successful social media app (facebook, instagram, youtube, twitter) does. It is "the algorithm" and is certainly not an issue unique to TikTok

    4. a host of concerns have sprung up around national security. TikTok has denied all allegations of espionage, but the United States government is still investigating the app.

      It blows my mind that this is the only concern. How are people not concerned about their PERSONAL privacy, other than national security

    5. It is full of bright colors, moving graphics and bumping music.

      Kind of like...TikTok

    1. The bit.ly links that are created are also very diverse. Its harder to summarise this without offering a list of 100,000 of URL’s — but suffice it to say that there are a lot of pages from the major web publishers, lots of YouTube links, lots of Amazon and eBay product pages, and lots of maps. And then there is a long, long tail of other URL’s. When a pile-up happens in the social web it is invariably triggered by link-sharing, and so bit.ly usually sees it in the seconds before it happens.

      link shortener: rich insight into web activity...

    1. BitTorrent thus demonstrates a key Web 2.0 principle: the service automatically gets better the more people use it. While Akamai must add servers to improve service, every BitTorrent consumer brings his own resources to the party. There's an implicit "architecture of participation", a built-in ethic of cooperation, in which the service acts primarily as an intelligent broker, connecting the edges to each other and harnessing the power of the users themselves.

      web 2.0 in a nutshell: network effect

    1. crowdfunding campaign on Sci-Hub to buy additional drives

      wow wait a minute, does that mean the sci-hub database is a server run locally by alexandra?

    2. I did not tell Science how credentials were donated: either voluntarily or not.

      Hahahah - Surely a donation can't be involuntary

    1. Report of the Secretary-GeneralRoadmap for Digital CooperationJUNE 2020

      Reporte de la secretaría general de Naciones Unidas sobre cooperación digital, 2020

    1. But that is changing.

      who would've thought we'd cycle back to being at war and distance

      as divisive as ever (?)

      how technology is accused of bringing the faraway closer but distancing the nearby

    1. In medieval learned cultures (all the material in this volume was producedin learned, even academic circles for purposes of reading and new compo-sition), such a thorough mixing of media, especially the visual and the ver-bal, was commonplace

      This sounds much more like the "learned" world in the modern era using multi-media on the internet.

    1. Most web browsers are set by default to protect your privacy unless you opt for tracking yourself. For example, Internet Explorer automatically enables its “Do Not Track” option and Google Chrome blocks any 3rd-party cookies by default.
    1. Alarmingly, Google now deploys hidden trackers on 76% of websites across the web to monitor your behavior and Facebook has hidden trackers on about 25% of websites, according to the Princeton Web Transparency & Accountability Project. It is likely that Google and/or Facebook are watching you on most sites you visit, in addition to tracking you when using their products.

    1. Une révolution cognitive ?

      L'auteur utilise cette expression qui évoque un questionnement d'envergure. Sommes-nous face à des événements capables de métamorphoser la façon dont nos fonctions cognitives sont mobilisées? Il s'agit de la question qui restera ouverte mais sera argumentée en nous permettant de la segmenter et d'apercevoir la richesse de ses implications pour appréhender les notions de connaissance et d'apprentissage.

    1. Preprints? What?Alsosometimesreferred to ase-prints, they are digitally-shared,non-peer-reviewed scholarly articles that typically precede publication in a peer-reviewed journal [3]. They have been a part of science since at least the 1960s [4]. In 1990, Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web to help researchers share knowledge easily.

      Definisi preprint

      Preprint adalah makalah yang belum menjalani peninjauan sejawat yang versi digitalnya dibagikan secara daring. Preprint biasanya dibagikan sebelum dikirimkan ke jurnal.

      Preprint bukan barang baru

      Preprint telah dikenal sejak tahun 1960an (bidang biologi/ilmu hayati). Preprint merupakan salah satu produk turunan dari www yang diciptakan pada tahun 1990 oleh Tim Berners-Lee.

    1. Huge web properties were started during this era including Yahoo, Google, Amazon, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube. In the process, the importance of centralized platforms like AOL greatly diminished.

    1. The aim has always been to help decentralise the internet and provide a platform that hands control back to users.
    1. You can also turn off personalization for your browser by installing the Interest-Based Ads Opt Out extension.
    2. Google is one of many ad networks that personalizes ads based on your activity online. Go to AdChoices to control ads from other ad networks.
    3. Uncheck the box next to "Also use your activity & information from Google services to personalize ads on websites and apps that partner with Google to show ads."
    1. It wouldn’t mean an end to being able to target ads online. Contextual targeting doesn’t require personal data — and has been used successfully by the likes of non-tracking search engine DuckDuckGo for years (and profitably so). It would just mean an end to the really creepy, stalkerish stuff. The stuff consumers hate — which also serves up horribly damaging societal effects, given that the mass profiling of internet users enables push-button discrimination and exploitation of the vulnerable at vast scale.
    1. And if people were really cool about sharing their personal and private information with anyone, and totally fine about being tracked everywhere they go and having a record kept of all the people they know and have relationships with, why would the ad tech industry need to spy on them in the first place? They could just ask up front for all your passwords.
    2. From an ad tech perspective, the concern is that manipulation doesn’t work when it’s obvious. And the goal of targeted advertising is to manipulate people’s decisions based on intelligence about them gleaned via clandestine surveillance of their online activity (so inferring who they are via their data). This might be a purchase decision. Equally it might be a vote.
    1. It is required by the GDPR as you must document cookies and online tracking at anytime and you must be able to show that documentation to both your users and the EU.
    1. And so The Year of Intentional Internet began.

      After reading just a few posts by Desiree Zamora Garcia, I'd like to nominate her to give a keynote at the upcoming IndieWeb Summit in June. I totally want to hear her give a talk with the title Year of Intentional Internet.

    1. there are third-party cookies, such as those placed by advertisers to see what you’re interested in and in turn serve you ads — even when you leave the original site you visited. (This is how ads follow you around the internet.)

    1. todos los partidos tienen Internet en todos los países desarrollados, pero son vías, insisto, unidireccionales de información, para captar la opinión, para convertir simplemente a los ciudadanos en votantes potenciales y para que los partidos obtengan la información para saber cómo ajustar su publicidad. Yo diría que, en este sentido, el problema no es de Internet. El problema es del sistema político y, una vez más, tenemos un leitmotiv de la conferencia que les estoy intentando transmitir, que es la idea de que la sociedad modela a Internet, y no al contrario. Allí donde hay una movilización social, Internet se convierte en un instrumento dinámico de cambio social; allí donde hay burocratización política y política estrictamente mediática de representación ciudadana, Internet es simplemente un tablón de anuncios.

      Internet no cambia la política o a los movimientos sociales, es al contrario. Internet amplifica lo que hacen los grupos sociales.

    2. ¿Cuál es la lógica específica de la sociabilidad on line? Lo más interesante es la idea de que son comunidades personales, comunidades de personas basadas en los intereses individuales y en las afinidades y valores de las personas. Es decir, en la medida en que se desarrollan en nuestras sociedades proyectos individuales, proyectos de dar sentido a la vida a partir de lo que yo soy y quiero ser, Internet permite esa conexión saltando por encima de los límites físicos de lo cotidiano, tanto en el lugar de residencia como en el lugar de trabajo y genera, por tanto, redes de afinidades

      Internet posibilita crear comunidades en torno a intereses particulares que superan las limitaciones geográficas.

    3. un estudio que acaba de hacer British Telecom, un gran estudio de observación realizado a lo largo de un año en una serie de hogares en los que se utilizaba Internet, que no cambia nada. Es decir, que la gente que hacía lo que hacía, lo sigue haciendo con Internet y a los que les iba bien, les va mucho mejor, y a los que les iba mal, les va igual de mal; el que tenía amigos, los tiene también en Internet y, quien no los tenía, tampoco los tiene con Internet. Es un estudio intelectualmente muy conservador, pero lo cito y les doy la referencia porque es un estudio muy espectacular. Se llama Aquí no pasa nada. Pero sí que pasa. Internet es un instrumento que desarrolla pero no cambia los comportamientos, sino que los comportamientos se apropian de Internet y, por tanto, se amplifican y se potencian a partir de lo que son

      Internet no cambia los comportamientos de las personas, sino que las personas con sus comportamientos son las que apropian Internet. Cómo dice Levinas, la tecnología sólo amplifica lo que esta en el corazón del hombre.

    4. Por tanto, la conectividad como elemento de divisoria social está disminuyendo rapidísimamente. Pero lo que sí se observa en aquellas personas, sobre todo estudiantes, niños, que están conectadas, es que aparece un segundo elemento de división social mucho más importante que la conectividad técnica, y es la capacidad educativa y cultural de utilizar Internet. Una vez que toda la información está en la red, una vez que el conocimiento está en la red, el conocimiento codificado, pero no el conocimiento que se necesita para lo que se quiere hacer, de lo que se trata es de saber dónde está la información, cómo buscarla, cómo procesarla, cómo transformarla en conocimiento específico para lo que se quiere hacer. Esa capacidad de aprender a aprender, esa capacidad de saber qué hacer con lo que se aprende, esa capacidad es socialmente desigual y está ligada al origen social, al origen familiar, al nivel cultural, al nivel de educación.

      Las personas están cada vez más conectados (Primera Brecha Digital), pero las poblaciones menos favorecidas no aprovechan el acceso que tienen (Segunda Brecha Digital).

    1. One important aspect of critical social media research is the study of not just ideolo-gies of the Internet but also ideologies on the Internet. Critical discourse analysis and ideology critique as research method have only been applied in a limited manner to social media data. Majid KhosraviNik (2013) argues in this context that ‘critical dis-course analysis appears to have shied away from new media research in the bulk of its research’ (p. 292). Critical social media discourse analysis is a critical digital method for the study of how ideologies are expressed on social media in light of society’s power structures and contradictions that form the texts’ contexts.
    1. Upon the efficient consumption and summarizing of news from around the world. Remember? from when we though the internet would provide us timely, pertinent information from around the world? How do we find internet information in a timely fashion? I have been told to do this through Twitter or Facebook, but, seriously… no. Those are systems designed to waste time with stupid distractions in order to benefit someone else. Facebook is informative in the same way that thumb sucking is nourishing. Telling me to use someone’s social website to gain information is like telling me to play poker machines to fix my financial troubles.. Stop that.

    1. For most of my bookmarks, likes, reads, etc. I use a plugin that scrapes my post and saves a copy of the contents of all the URLs on my page to the Internet Archive so that even in the event of a site death, a copy of the content is saved for me for a later date.

      Chris, I was wondering what plugin you use to store copies of the links to Archive.org?

    1. One of the questions that came up during the SPLOT workshop is if there’s a SPLOT for podcasting, which reminded me of this post Adam Croom wrote a while back about his podcasting workflow: “My Podcasting Workflow with Amazon S3.” . We’re always on the look-out for new SPLOTs to bring to the Reclaim masses, and it would be cool to have an example that moves beyond WordPress just to make the point a SPLOT is not limited to WordPress (as much as we love it) —so maybe Adam and I can get the band back together

      I just outlined a tiny and relatively minimal/free way to host and create a podcast feed last night: https://boffosocko.com/2019/12/17/55761877/

      I wonder if this could be used to create a SPLOT that isn't WordPress based potentially using APIs from the Internet Archive and Huffduffer? WordPress-based infrastructure could be used to create it certainly and aggregation could be done around tags. It looks like the Huffduffer username SPLOT is available.

    1. Google found 1,494 device identifiers in SensorVault, sending them to the ATF to comb through. In terms of numbers, that’s unprecedented for this form of search. It illustrates how Google can pinpoint a large number of mobile phones in a brief period of time and hand over that information to the government

    1. В 2017 году количество устройств, подключенных к «интернету вещей», выросло до 8,4 миллиарда. Консалтинговое агентство Forrester прогнозирует, что к концу года более полумиллиона из них взломают. В Университете Иннополис уточняют, что в третьем квартале 2017 года в городской инфраструктуре стали фиксировать на 30 % больше случаев угрозы информационной безопасности. При этом каждый пятый из них оказался критичным.

    1. One of the concerning aspects of Internet vigilantism is the nature of the internet being both ephemeral (due to the overwhelming amount of new, incoming information) and eternal (due to the nature of reaction and spread of information) simultaneously

    2. In short, once someone is labeled a Nazi on the internet, that person stays a Nazi on the internet.Internet vigilantism has a checkered history.
