If you've wondered why I've been so silent, it's because Stephen's Edu_RSS does not recognize my blog's RSS feed. Since it does pick up Workflow Institute's feed, I periodically list Internet Time posts here.

Teaching Through the Screen
Now I know I link to just about every one of Barbara's

heh. as you can see by my uid and userpage, i'm relatively new to this site you call kay-five. i had a dream the other night, though, where i was reading this book. in the dream, i thought its title was 5k. it didn't make sense at the time. rusty, an adjective, as a person? an i and an it certainly is? the book was set up in diary format, covering the last few years on some backwater planet on the outer rim called, quaintly, earth. the pink robots said it was occasionally harmless and that there is no K5 cabal... but i digress...

Geniacs at work
A 1955 Geniacs computer kit for kids 1955 is currently selling at eBay for $232.50, and there are four days left in the auction. Geniacs kit I had one of these when I was a lad. You programmed it by placing metal strips on wheels. I also had a plastic computer that consisted of layers like a lasagna that had tubes you slid over prongs to make them longer (where long=on), and then you shuffled the layers. Yes, the memory is a bit fuzzy, but the computer's logic was not. I did not care for either toy. I didn't like... From Joho the Blog

A series of centers
Happening to be talking about podcasting, Rex Hammock
locates the power of the web in its decentered-ness: Podcasting does not want to have a "central place." The web hates central places. I'd like to put that idea in the context of the "Jeff Gannon" affair, or rather the huge amounts of work people like... From Weblogs in Higher Education

Identity Assurance in a Virtual World
According to the Gartner Group, victims of Phishing attacks are three times more likely to suffer some form of identity theft than the general population (May 2004). Once you have access to someone's personal data and then move on to impersonate them, you have near anonymity to commit your crime! In addition to monetary losses from fraud committed by Phishers, Phishing tarnishes brand image and destroys customer confidence in doing business over the Internet. As one of the most prolific attack vectors over past 12+ months the success of the Phishing attack can in part be attributed to t From Infosec Writers Latest Security Papers

XBox 360 - A new media distribution platform
While there was a little buzz last week
about the emerging next-generation XBox, to be called XBox 360, much of it focused on the industrial design and basic facts like wireless controllers and that there will be an edition with a hard-drive and one without, etc. What was not talked about broadly was the much more important details on how the XBox is going to help transform digital media distribution on the Internet.

Release 1.0 - Taxonomies and Trees
I wrote the current issue of Esther Dyson's Release 1.0 newsletter, a looong piece on taxonomies and tagging. Esther has given me permission to post the introduction to the article. It attempts to give an overview of taxonomies, trees, faceted classification, tags and folksonomies. Here's how it begins: The narrative that tells of the first man and woman encountering the tree of knowledge focuses on its tempting fruit. But after we took the bite, we apparently looked up and got the idea that knowledge is shaped like the tree's branching structure: Big concepts contain smaller on From Joho the Blog
