Deconstructing Gamification's Big Thinkers: Sebastian Deterding & Seth Prieba... - 14 views

  • gamification, or making a non-game application more engaging by adding game-like features, is clearly more than a bolt-on marketing fad and even quite possibly the next big thing for the internet

    gamification, or making a non-game application more engaging by adding game-like features, is clearly more than a bolt-on marketing fad and even quite possibly the next big thing for the internet; it's certainly a long overdue element of online education :-)

Personas | Metropath(ologies) | An installation by Aaron Zinman - 14 views

  •  
    Enter your name, and Personas scours the web for information and attempts to characterize the person - to fit them to a predetermined set of categories that an algorithmic process created from a massive corpus of data. The computational process is visualized with each stage of the analysis, finally resulting in the presentation of a seemingly authoritative personal profile.

FreedomLab Future Studies » Is asking "What is Internet" a stupid question? - 10 views

  • I got far more the fealing that kids don’t talk about the ‘web’ in total… that’s domething that’s just there like motorway-infrastructure. They expresse themselves by activating tools like msn-ing etc. If I as a Digital Imigrant needed to put a word to what there metaphore would be like, is close to things like the swarm, the crows, the cloud… like it is a huge living IT =)

UK Children Go Online | The Communication Initiative Network - 1 views

  • Hence, a new divide is opening up, one centred on the quality of use. The UKCGO survey finds that middle class children, children with internet access at home, children with broadband access and children whose parents use the internet more often are more likely to be daily users and so to experience the internet as a rich, if risky, medium than are less privileged children.

      Those not falling into this category will lose on the benefits of high-speed, regular internet use.
  • Summary

    This nationwide survey of 1,500 children aged 9-19 and their parents is part of a research project carried out by UK Children Go Online (UKCGO). Between January and March 2004, researchers conducted in-home, face-to-face interviews, lasting some 40 minutes, of 1,511 children and 906 parents across the United Kingdom.

      2004 is severely out of date in this field. The figures today are going to be much higher.
  • Currently, 74% have internet access via a computer, games console or digital television
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • School access is near universal: 92% have accessed the internet at school
  • 88% of middle class but only 61% of working class children have accessed the internet at home;
  •  
    2004 research on UK internet access for children. Presumably the figures have increased since then.

  • According to the Twitter's official blog post on wednesday, the company is getting ready to launch a search engine that would make it possible for users to search for keywords and phrases being used by the people they follow on the popular messaging site.
  • Although IE8's security promise has already been marred to an extent -- it was hacked the day before its official rollout -- it may escape the potentially serious fallout from using JavaScript. IE8 was cracked at the 10th annual CanSecWest conference in Vancouver, Canada, Wednesday by a hacker who identified himself only as "Nils." To be fair, the first browser to go down at the hacking contest at CanSecWest was Apple's Safari.

Proposed Law Might Make Wi-Fi Users Help Cops - PC World - 0 views

  •  
    A proposed U.S. law would require Internet service providers to store information about every user of their services and keep that data for at least two years, in a bid to crack down on Internet-based predators and child pornographers. The language of the law may even apply to owners of home Wi-Fi routers, according to a digital rights attorney.
    U.S. Senator John Cornyn and Representative Lamar Smith, both Republicans from Texas, held a press conference Thursday to announce separate bills in the Senate and House of Representatives, both called the Internet Safety Act.

Technology Review: Don't Blame the Internet - 0 views

  •  
    Last year, after the social-networking site MySpace found that its members included some 29,000 registered sex offenders, the nation's top state prosecutors demanded a technological fix, asking that the industry "explore and develop age and identity verification tools for social networking web sites." But a new study concludes that such technologies are unlikely to thwart anonymous predators and that the threat facing children online is no worse than it is in the real world.
