THE BEACONS FAQ: Everything You Need To Know About Beacons And Apple's iBeacon System - 3 views

    Beacons are a new type of device that could change the way people shop in stores and revolutionize how retailers collect consumer data and interact with shoppers. Retailers can use beacons to trigger location-based features on customers' smartphone apps, including targeted coupons, store maps, and hands-free payments.
    seems like there are some clear privacy issues here but I'm pretty conflicted on the use of these as it is advantageous for all parties when consumers allow businesses to target them more efficiently

Conocimiento Abierto - 0 views

    Empecé a leerlo, sin conocer demasiado javascript y con la idea de adquirir buenas prácticas de desarrollo en javascript y en ese sentido me decepcionó un poco. El libro está bien, pero es poco opinativo.

Deleting The Digital Divide One Computer at a Time | Indiegogo - 1 views

    one solution to help inequality problem?
    Good crowd-funding project that tries to help solve the digital divide problem by providing infrastructure to those who lack the money to purchase a computer. In addition to providing the physical infrastructure of the computer to allow those without one to catch up to society, perhaps another solution to conquer the digital divide is to educate those who have just received computers how to use the internet to look for information, consume, produce and distribute the information.
    Honestly I think public libraries need WAY more computers.

Open-Source Software for Libraries - 4 views

    Librarian site from New Zealand. It's still far from comprehensive but it can provide a good start if you're looking for stuff to try. FOSS4LIB is a much larger directory of library-specific open-source projects you might also look at.

    Thank you for sharing.
    I've used Greenstone, Koha, and Wordpress, and while Wordpress is the easiest to use, I find it the least "library-esque" of the three. Koha is excellent once you get started, and has barcode-scanning built in, which can be very useful. Greenstone I've only just started to look at, but is fairly user-friendly once you get started and has a huge community of users that can help with any number of add-ons and tutorials. Great article!
    Thanks, great stuff. I created a blog using WordPress.

Access and Equity Comparative Perspectives - 1 views

    The massive expansion of higher education across all continents is one of the defining features of our century. This volume examines two dimensions of this: those of access and equity. Building on the country studies undertaken by this group of Fulbright New Century Scholars, the book offers a unique focus in its commitment to bring together an analysis of the theoretical literature on equity; a focus on the methodological problems of measuring access and equity from a comparative perspective; a comparative analysis of trends and policy developments set in a global framework; and a comparative analysis of targeted initiatives which are currently in place in different societies. The need to develop a comparative research programme addressing the question of measuring equity is noted

Difusión Científica y las Políticas de Acceso Abierto - 0 views

    Nuestro conocimiento del mundo ha ido aumentando rápidamente con el tiempo haciéndose, cada vez,más confiable. Como nunca antes, la adaptación de las sociedades al ritmo del conocimiento se ha vuelto crucial para el desarrollo sostenido. Sin embargo, es importante destacar que el acceso al conocimiento se ha visto restringido; grandes cantidades de personas en el mundo se han quedado atrás en esta enorme y emocionante carrera de nuestros días. Es determinante superar este abismo de cualquier forma posible, especialmente porque cada segmento del mundo depende de los otros actualmente. Una forma de acercarse a un equilibrio es la aplicación de recursos de Acceso Abierto al conocimiento.
    Estoy de acuerdo contigo, la tendencia debe ser buscar un equilibrio en la aplicación de los recursos que nos brinda el Acceso Abierto al Conocimiento.

South Africa's internet penetration poor - 0 views

    "The results further showed that 64.8% of households in South Africa had no access to the Internet. Of those households that had access to the Internet, 16.3% accessed it via cellphone, 8.6% from home, 5.6% from elsewhere and 4.7% from work."
    It's unfortunate that South Africa is still plagued by inequality. While it is good that some are accessing the web via mobile, ideally more efforts would be done to create infrastructure to serve entire communities.
