  • danah boyd discusses different dimensions of visibility in her paper presented at Supernova and Le Web. San Francisco and Paris, 1 and 10 December 2009. CLIPS: " …. what you see is a world that you've constructed. These are YOUR "Friends", the people you've chosen to follow. Or at least the people you've been guilted into following. These people shape your experiences of social media. They speak about things that matter to you, either because you know them personally or because you like the way they think. They speak like you. Or, more accurately, you speak like them. Cuz even though you might think you're speaking to your "audience," your sense of norms is based on the content you read……… You aren't speaking to your "audience" but to the people who you like to watch. Your sense of what people do with social media is highly dependent on what you consume, how you consume it, and why you're there in the first place. So is mine … "
  • CLIPS: "Each of the other Fellows I met in Mysore was equally awe-inspiring – whether it was Olympic sailor Rohini Rau, 18-year-old inventor Ashutosh Patra, Ambulance Access for All founder Shafi Mather or Nigerian lawyer-activist Peace Anyiam-Osigwe. The work they do is changing the world. Their spirit energised mine. Our bonding experiences include loud songs till 4 a.m. on the Infosys campus; memories that will soon become legend via Facebook reminiscing and real world meet-ups whenever we visit each other’s cities". ….. "TED India was all about this kind of celebratory sharing. When one shares, one feels immense joy. There were many joyful spontaneous outbursts at TED. In my memory, Sunitha’s standing ovation blurs into the audience members singing ‘We are the world’ with Usha Utup on day one, which in turn blurs into everyone taking to the floor for coordinated Bollywood dancing alongside choreographer Longinus at the palace party on day two…."
  • A super New Year post from @mtrends. Make sure you click through the slideshare presentation where he has some remarkable people sharing their top five mobile trends. CLIP: To this end I have been writing down my predictions in mobile & wireless for a couple of years now. This year I thought it was the time to move on and do something different, so I asked some of my personal heroes in mobile to write down their five most significant trends for the coming decade.

    All of them have been of great inspiration to me during this decade: for their ideas, visions, talent, the capabilities to adapt and the perseverance to succeed whatever the situation. While I didn’t know any one of these great people 10 years ago, I’m glad to have met most of them and proud that some I can call them real friends.

  • A nice compilation of links and thoughts on knowledge sharing within an organization from @ceciiil. CLIP: Bertrand Duperrin explains in a quite remarkable post the risk of backslash when using standard web 2.0 key words while presenting social networks to a new audience. The reason is : there could be some misunderstanding from the audience.

    Among these key words : Conversation. Bertrand exposes the issue :

    Try to tell a manager, who’s been fighting againtst chattings that are synonymous with wasted time and bad productivity for years, that his staff now need to have conversations, and, even worse, that his role is to stimulate these conversations….and look at the manager’s face

    6 reasons to bring management and the enterprise conversation back together. And to use collaborative platforms to foster the latter.

  • Here's the Abstract. CLIP: Abstract
    This paper explores how 20–something Facebook users understand and navigate privacy concerns. Based on a year–long ethnographic study in Toronto, Canada, this paper looks at how — contrary to many mainstream accounts — younger users do indeed care about protecting and controlling their personal information. However, their concerns revolve around what I call social privacy, rather than the more conventional institutional privacy. This paper also examines the somewhat subversive practices which users engaged in to enhance their own social privacy, and in some cases, violate that of others. Finally, this paper examines some of the reasons that users may continue using the site, despite privacy concerns.
