    Instantly adding new community toolbars Because the community toolbar you already have was created with the Conduit platform, you can instantly add more Conduit-powered toolbars to yours without installing them as separate rows on your browser screen. That's because the new community toolbars will be found on your list, or group, of community toolbars, and you can just swap between the one showing on your browser and any one in the list.

Labs/Weave/ClientAPI - MozillaWiki - 0 views

  •  
    This page describes how to the client-side Weave API for sync engines (and their helper classes). The focus is on using this API to create a new sync engine to synchronize a new data type. The data type can be anything that extension JS code has access to through any Mozilla API; this means this page must of necessity be pretty vague about reading and writing the underlying data. You'll have to fill in those blanks yourself. Try browsing the [link] xpcom documentation to find out how to get at the many types of useful data that Mozilla stores.

The Attention Economy: An Overview - 0 views

  • Because of this information explosion, we no longer read - we skim. The news that used to last a day now lasts just a few hours, simply because we need to pay attention to the new news. So it is becoming increasingly difficult to juggle all the news sources and keep on top of things. Which brings us to the law of information, stated first by Herbert Simon: the rapid growth of information
  • causes scarcity of attention.
  • It is also a big problem for news sites, blogs, search engines and online retailers. Our scarcity of attention hurts their economics.
  • ...12 more annotations...
  • What is the likelihood that you leave if you see an irrelevant headline? High.
  • The idea behind the Attention Economy is to create a marketplace where consumers are happy, because if they are shown relevant information
  • For example news feeds illustrate the point well, since they ask for consumers attention in exchange for the opportunity to show him/her advertising. The Search engines are similar in that respect, because they show ads in exchange for helping users find answers online.
  • It is important to realize that the key ingredient in the attention game is relevancy.
  • So the question is: how do you show the user relevant content? This is a complex problem that can be partially addressed by recommendation engines.
  • Another key ingredient of the Attention Economy is privacy.
  • The challenge is not just to protect consumers information, the challenge is to put the user in control of her information.
  • AttentionTrust succeeded in defining a simple, elegant, yet encompassing set of principles that define the rules of the game, by outlining the basic consumer rights in the AttentionEconomy: Property: You own your attention and can store it wherever you wish. You have CONTROL. Mobility: You can securely move your attention wherever you want, whenever you want to. You have the ability to TRANSFER your attention. Economy: You can pay attention to whomever you wish and receive value in return. Your attention has WORTH. Transparency: You can see exactly how your attention is being used.
  • So these seemingly simple rules ensure that participants transact fairly and that businesses do not monopolize users information
  • Ideally, a body of standards and protocols should be the technological foundation of the Attention Economy. Since these are early days of the conversation about attention, such standards do not yet exist. Here is an outline of what the Attention Architecture will look like (there is a detailed post on the topic from last year on my personal blog):
  • So from a technical point of view, the key to facilitating the attention marketplace is in decoupling of attention capturing, attention storage and attention recording services.
  • Silos: User information needs to be freed from proprietary silos Round Table: The industry needs to create a round table, to enable organizations to govern both the business and technical aspects of the attention economy (think Java Community Process). Education: People need to be educated about the value of their attention and the principles of attention economy. Avoiding privacy concerns will not work, instead they need to be tackled head on.

How Web 2.0 has changed the face of education - 0 views

  • The term Web 2.0 was coined in 2004 to describe a shift towards new ways of using the web as a platform for tools and services that have an emphasis on user participation and interaction.

  • Teachers are able to give learners more open ended and collaborative tasks to research and present in the medium of their choice, encouraging autonomy and independent learning

  • While this may be appropriate in some circumstances, it is important to educate children about safe internet use, and make them aware of the risks, so that their approach to using the internet is safe outside school as well
  • Other concerns include the potential for some online tools to be a distraction to learners in class. This is largely an issue of classroom management and is not specific to Web 2.0
  • However, using Web 2.0 for learning is more about particular methods and approaches to teaching than introducing a new set of technologies and tools
  • However, this is not about technology for technology's sake and we need to use technology when it is effective and appropriate to do so. As with most new technology, successful implementation relies on effective leadership, reliable infrastructure and support, and the space and time to allow teachers to innovate and embed technology into their everyday practice.

The Future of the Internet-And How to Stop It - 0 views

  •  
    The Future of the Internet explains the engine that has catapulted the Internet from backwater to ubiquity-and reveals that it is sputtering precisely because of its runaway success. With the unwitting help of its users, the generative Internet is on a path to a lockdown, ending its cycle of innovation-and facilitating unsettling new kinds of control. As tethered appliances and applications eclipse the PC, the very nature of the Internet-its "generativity," or innovative character-is at risk.

Obama Unlimited ~ GLOBAL NEWS - 0 views

  •  
    Beneath a stagnant-looking surface, the current of fiscal negotiation in Washington, D.C., is moving in the expected direction - and maybe more swiftly than anyone expected. The unexpected retirement of Sen. Jim DeMint, a conservative firebrand from South Carolina, is the strongest signal yet that Republican hardliners know they can't hold back the tide of higher taxes sweeping across Capitol Hill.

Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers and Teacher-Librarians (Stephen's Lighthouse) - 0 views

  •  
    This wiki was created for school library media specialists by Dr. Donna Baumbach and Dr. Judy Lee, University of Central Florida. The purpose is to provide information about some of the new web-based tools (Web 2.0) and how they can be used and are being used by school library media specialists and their students and teachers. Much of the information--including identifying a need for this kind of information--is the result of a survey conducted in 2008 of over 600 school library media specialists about their knowledge and use of web-based tools in library media programs.

Back to School with the Class of Web 2.0: Part 1 - 6 views

  •  
    With the start of the new school year, many teachers and students are seeking new products and technologies to help them through their upcoming academics. With the increase of teachers using blogs and wikis, and students networking and utilizing online tools, the demand for easier and more efficient ways of learning is on the rise. To me, the growing interest for web-based learning is amazing, which brought me to thinking; what if I were to consolodate some of the helpful online products and services that can help students, teachers and administrators alike? Well, I convinced myself. The following is a compilation of Web 2.0 products that I've personally researched and tested. These services are grouped into two main categories: "Tools"; and "Office ApplicationsR21;. Some more specific services include: organizers, gradebooks, research tools, document managers, diagrams, and more

Why We Like Diigo - School Computing - 0 views

  •  
    We all use the web to research information, but until recently this meant saving copies of web pages as files or printing them out as you visit them in order to collect, save, highlight, or annotate each one. A new web browser tool has made it possible to do all of this electronically. I'm now able to mark up web pages as easily as if I were using a yellow highlighter and a red pen. When I return to those web pages my annotations are still there, and I can also choose to see others' annotations. I no longer need to copy and paste between web pages and Word to take notes, and to keep track of what came from where. This process is all digitally facilitated with the Diigo social bookmarking and annotating tool. This tool has shifted the way I read the world wide web to be much more active. Diigo (http://www.diigo.com) keeps track of my annotations and categorizes the sites based on the tags I specify. This ability to interact with websites in the same way I use a paper textbook means that I can highlight passages, "dog-ear" important pages, and scribble in the margins. I can do all of this individually or collaboratively with others.
