    Don't know if this documentary film gained much visibility in the US, it certainly didn't in Europe. But it's brilliant and very interesting, so if you haven't watch it yet you definitely should!

    Very well done video. It makes a point visually and in the words presented. The message fits the media.

    Skip over the synopsis of "The Social Network."
    Great discussion article about how Facebook oversimplifies humanity and can have dangerous effects on how we relate. I highlighted a lot of stuff. I highly encourage you to check it out. Talks in terms of how web2.0 has spawned people2.0. A kind of crazy reality.

Okay, So Maybe Facebook Won't Completely Destroy Your Soul - 7 views

  •  
    Reminds those that disparage Facebook that it can be used to keep people in contact that live far apart, whether they be friends or family. I highlighted a sentence that I found rather discouraging. She said she preferred keeping in touch with people via IM over the phone. This alarmed me. (Imagine me doing one of my odd emotional/physical reactions...in this case going limp on my couch.) I believe there is a sort of communication hierarchy. In that hierarchy, I think that the phone should always be superior to IM in human communication due to its inclusion of tonal inflection and variation that is lost in any kind of writing. Certainly IM is more convenient, but it is less human.
  •  
    I think it is dangerous and, honestly, somewhat prescriptivist and ableist to associate human communication solely with traits like "sight" and "voice." There are many people who lack to the ability to hear or speak but still manage to communicate in a deeply real, emotional, and human manner.

    Touche. Great point.

Mark Zuckerberg foresees that all of life will become socially interconnected - 0 views

  •  
    Zuckerberg has far reaching vision for the future of the internet, imagining that every aspect will become social in some manner. The internet on mobile devices will make serendipitous moments of "running into" people at random places commonplace because we will be able to use technology to know when we are in the same place as our Facebook friends. Though Zuckerberg and his team do acknowledge how Facebook may cause a shallowing of human relationships, they choose to ignore and look on to the vision of Facebook: a place enabling people to connect in every area of life.

Hack of the Day: Face Detection with HTML5 & JavaScript - 0 views

      I think it's only a matter of time before face recognition is coupled with mobile devices and you can identify a stranger on the street by taking their photo and submitting it to a database for evaluation.

Views: Over It Yet? Privacy, That Is - Inside Higher Ed - 0 views

  • social media were invented not to promote your own reality show or to engage student learners in the digital age but to make money via programming and targeted advertising at your and your institution’s personal expense
  • give marketers and advertisers the most direct window into our psyche and buying habits they've ever had
  • imagine the level of awareness by other majors not required to understand privacy invasion, liability and social responsibility

Twitter, Facebook, and social activism : The New Yorker - 0 views

  • The instruments of social media are well suited to making the existing social order more efficient. They are not a natural enemy of the status quo.
