Getting in a Tizz About the Connectivism Course
The Connectivism course is drawing nearer and - honestly - i think we're all a little nervous about it. That's OK though; life is about risk. Sarah Stewart, Sarah's Musings, August 25, 2008 [Link] [Tags: ] [Comment]

Twitter'S Move Towards Semantic Info and the Content Graph
I have never thought that "it's about who you know". It's about what people know - and the who has always been a way to get at the what. This could be a key move for Twitter - connecting personal networks into content networks. Reminds me of thje Semantic Social Network. Pete Chen, The Blog Files, August 25, 2008 [Link] [Tags: , ] [Comment]

The Danger of Information
Seeing a lot of this recently. "The underlying message from both writers (and their editors) is that we would be far better off with a limited flow of information. And that a few traditional filters of that information (like the Post, the Times, and Ben Stein) should be the ones telling us what's important." Ther problem is, we've seen what these traditional media outlets give us when we depend oin them, and (in my view at least) I'd like to try the alternative to see if we can get some quality content. Or at least, news that isn't sold to the highest bidder. Tim Stahmer, Assorted Stuff, August 25, 2008 [Link] [Tags: ] [Comment]
