  • The physical act of sending a camera around the world illustrates and underscores the DISTANCE part of our community.

      I'm hoping to document the travels of the camera and create a Google Maps mashup and downloadable Google Earth .kml file so everyone can take a virtual sightseeing trip to all the places the camera has visited.

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.

Video games linked to poor relationships with friends, family - 0 views

  •  
    A new study connects young adults' use of video games to poorer relationships with friends and family - and the student co-author expresses disappointment at his own findings. Brigham Young University undergrad Alex Jensen and his faculty mentor, Laura Walker, publish their results Jan. 23 in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence.
    The research is based on information collected from 813 college students around the country. As the amount of time playing video games went up, the quality of relationships with peers and parents went down.

ThoughtCrumbs | Et voila - 0 views

  •  
    Just finished submitting Feed Me: Motivating Newcomer Contribution in Social Network Sites ( PDF). The gist is that we analyzed a large group of newly registered FB users and counted all the things they did (or their friends did) in their first two weeks, and predicted how the newbies would behave three months later (how many photos they'd upload). We found that if their friends are uploading photos, they're more likely to, as well (no surprise). And early photo comments are good. But there are some surprises about tagging in there.

Asus Planning Cheap Eee Smartphone | Gadget Lab from Wired.com - 0 views

  •  
    "This news comes with nary a hint of specifications, launch date, design or price, but the words came straight from the mouth of Jonney Shih, chairman of Asustek. Shih says that Asus is planning yet another Eee, this time a smartphone. In an interview with the New York Times, he said that the phone will be the command center at the heart of "the digital home", kind of like the way the iPhone works as a remote for iTunes, only it will control the whole house."

Chief Learning Officer magazine - Five Learning Trends for 2009 - 0 views

  •  
    This year will no doubt be disruptive for budgets and staffing terms. As in the last downturn, we can expect many organizations to increase their use of e-learning to reduce classroom and travel costs. Expanding use of e-learning requires awareness of new trends to choose the best alternatives for learning. To identify trends for 2009, we reviewed our research and spoke with learning industry executives about what they see happening in 2009.

Official Google Notebook Blog: Stopping development on Google Notebook - 0 views

  •  
    "Starting next week, we plan to stop active development on Google Notebook. This means we'll no longer be adding features or offer Notebook for new users. But don't fret, we'll continue to maintain service for those of you who've already signed up. As part of this plan, however, we will no longer support the Notebook Extension, but as always users who have already signed up will continue to have access to their data via the web interface at http://www.google.com/notebook."

Official Google Video Blog: Turning Down Uploads at Google Video - 0 views

  •  
    In a few months, we will discontinue support for uploads to Google Video. Don't worry, we're not removing any content hosted on Google Video -- this just means you will no longer be able to upload new content to the service. We've always maintained that Google Video's strength is in the search technology that makes it possible for people to search videos from across the web, regardless of where they may be hosted. And this move will enable us to focus on developing these technologies further to the benefit of searchers worldwide.

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.

The kids then visit laboratories where they learn about automatic functions of the brain and how the electrical activity of the brain is recorded.

New Systems Keep a Close Eye on Online Students at Home - Chronicle.com - 0 views

  •  
    "Tucked away in a 1,200-page bill now in Congress is a small paragraph that could lead distance-education institutions to require spy cameras in their students' homes.
    It sounds Orwellian, but the paragraph - part of legislation renewing the Higher Education Act - is all but assured of becoming law by the fall. No one in Congress objects to it.
    The paragraph is actually about clamping down on cheating. It says that an institution that offers an online program must prove that an enrolled student is the same person who does the work."
