Bloggers: Nobodies with laptops - karakteristik af den moderne forbruger?
Why There's No Escaping the Blog
Freewheeling bloggers can boost your product—or destroy it. Either way, they've become a force business can't afford to ignore.

"According to blog search-engine and measurement firm Technorati, 23,000 new weblogs are created every day—or about one every three seconds."

Uundværlig viden i my home town, hvis strikkebutikker alle lige nu er ramt af ponchoen ;), så jeg har selvfølgelig straks e-mailet Manolo og bedt ham tilføje en RSS feed til bloggen - Manolo's blog er et must i min 'Bloglines' :)

Smart Mobs: Folksonomy - more collective classification: "Folksonomy - more collective classification
How to Recognize The Future When It Lands On You, Technologies of Cooperation
Posted by Gerrit Visser at 09:08 AM

According to the free encyclopedia Wikipedia Folksonomy is a neologism for a practice of collaborative categorization using simple tags in a flat namespace.

This feature has begun appearing in a variety of social software. At present, the best examples of online folksonomies are social bookmarking probably, a bookmark sharing site, and Flickr, for photo sharing. Gmail's labeling system is somewhat similar to the use of tags, but it is not a folksonomy because users cannot share their categorizations. Folksonomy is related to the concept of faceted classification from library science.

Denham Grey writes on KM Knowdlege Tools that there is a growing interest in social classification and its relation to ontology development."

Privacy in the age of blogging
- tanker om blogging med undergraduates.
Crooked Timber: "As I prepare for my upcoming undergraduate class in which students will be required to maintain blogs, I have spent quite a bit of time thinking about how to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). According to FERPA, I have to make sure that certain details about student enrollment in my classes are kept private. In the process, I have realized that this is a one-way street. There is nothing preventing my students from blogging whatever information they decide about me. Of course, social sanctions may still exist. Students may decide it is not worth upsetting their instructor through such practices. Nonetheless, there will be plenty of opportunities for blogging things after class is over. Moreover, they may have individual blogs not associated with the class that are written anonymously and can serve as an outlet for commentary about others."

Det måtte jo komme. Først var der et rape i cyberspace, nu sex scandals of the blogosphere:
The New York Times > Magazine > Phenomenon: Your Blog or Mine?: "Your Blog or Mine?

Published: December 19, 2004

One of the first sex scandals of the blogosphere ended, of course, in a book deal. In May, Ana Marie Cox, the Internet gossip whose Web log, Wonkette, focuses on Washington, published a link to another blogger who called herself the Washingtonienne. In the blog, Washingtonienne, a Capitol Hill employee, used a Senate computer to post intimate details about her experience sleeping with six different men, some of whom were paying for her favors.

The NITLE News Volume 2, Number 1, winter 2003: "Weblogs in Education: Bringing the World to the Liberal Arts Classroom

- Sarah Lohnes

A new, easy-to-use web publishing tool known as a weblog allows users to publish content to the web from their browsers, providing users with an unprecedented ability to participate in the internet community. In the true liberal arts tradition, teachers and students are using these tools to effectively break down the walls of the classroom, integrating teaching and learning with local and virtual communities."
Crooked Timber: Blogs by students
I am teaching an undergraduate class this Winter called “Internet and Society”. [1] I am going to require each student to maintain his/her own blog. This poses some challenges from keeping up with the amount of written material to assuring a certain level of privacy for students (as per related federal laws). I still have a few weeks to think about the specifics and thought would see what experiences and wisdom others may have accumulated in this realm.

My talk at Brown today is titled 'Weblogs: Learning to Write in the Network' and is going to be mostly about using blogs with students. I'm going to stress network literacy and how blogging is not simply keeping an electronic journal, it's distributed and collaborative; it's learning to think and write with the network. I'll also talk a bit about the ethics of insisting students blog in public." How do " ordinary bloggers " blog ? And Why ?

Ethnographic investigations of « ordinary blogs and bloggers» by B. Nardi, D.J. Schiano, M. Gumbrecht and L. Swartz provide insight into the practices, experiences and motivations of individuals and groups who publish a blog for a small audience.

Danah Boyd: Broken Metaphors: Blogging as Liminal Practice
The goal of this paper is to reveal tensions underlying conceptualizations
First, I introduce how metaphorical constructions of blogging are being
limiting research on blogging by obfuscating an understanding of
Ong’s ‘secondary orality’ to discuss how blogging complicates
orality and textuality. Additionally, I discuss other dichotomous moves
blogging such as spatiality and corporeality, artifact and practice,
depictions of their practices to shed light on the tensions in each.

Mathemagenic: learning and KM insights: " Blogging as breathing or how to find time for blogging?

(Friday, December 03, 2004)

On the use of time for blogging

The most asked question when I speak to people who don't blog, is where I get the time to do it.

In Umea we discussed time consumption and listed a number of time-consuming factors. Time is needed:

* To get used to the tools
* To grow a network
* To get into action with others
* To grow trust
* For getting to know and find useful (re)sources
* To find your voice (for yourself, for others)"
This seems like a list of things that apply to a lot more situations than just blogging.

En tankevækkende tekst, som peger på det væsentlige forhold, at blogging og netværk ikke bare opstår i løbet af no time. Det skal læres og dyrkes.

He scans the results, and posts them online for all to see. Simple things like this bring me endless delight in the power of the web. It's a microscope. It's a telescope.

Boing Boing: MSN Spaces: seven dirty blogs: "Earlier today, I posted comments from a BoingBoing reader about the fact that MSN Spaces, Microsoft's new blogging tool, censors certain words you might try to include in a blog title or url. If you can't speak freely on a blog, what's the point of having one? This demanded a full investigation.

Using my existing MSN Passport account, I attempted to create a number of blogs, one after the other. The results of which titles passed and which were banned may surprise you -- or at least generate a few Beavis-and-Butthead snorkles. Each of the linked test-titles in this BoingBoing post points to to an actual, unmodified screenshot of the corresponding test blog I created (or was denied the ability to create) using MSN Search."

Article: The 'blog' revolution sweeps across China�| New Scientist

(19:00 24 November 04, Special Report from New Scientist Print Edition.)

It took a chance online encounter between a software engineer from Shanghai and a teacher in a remote province of China to start shaking up the power balance between the people and the government of the world’s most populous nation.

In August 2002, Isaac Mao, who worked at the Shanghai office of the chip maker Intel, was one of only a handful of people in China who had heard the word “blog”. A regular web surfer, he was fascinated by the freedom these online journals gave to ordinary people to publish both their own and their readers’ views online.

Surfing the US website, Mao was thrilled to find Zheng Yunsheng, a teacher at a technical school in Fujian province. He left a message on Zheng’s blog, and two weeks later Mao and Zheng started, China’s first online discussion forum about blogging technology and culture.

They soon gathered a small but devoted group of participants, many of whom went on to develop the technology that makes blogging possible for China’s half-a-million bloggers.
