Smarthistory, a multimedia web-book about art: discussing About Smarthistory
"We are interested in delivering the narratives of art history using the read-write web's interactivity and capacity for authoring and remixing. Publishers are adding multimedia to their textbooks, but unfortunately they are doing so in proprietary, password-protected adjunct websites. These are weak because they maintain an old model of closed and protected content, eliminating Web 2.0 possibilities for the open collaboration and open communities that our students now use and expect."

Musing about the need for j’adoube in a digital world – confused of calcutta
"In chess, a player declares ” j’adoube ” or “I adjust” in order to signal that he is just adjusting the position of a piece, not moving it.... So now let’s get on to LinkedIn. Today, if I go and edit my profile, just for the heck of it, the act of CV sprucing-up will be interpreted as a leaving signal. Even if the intent were to be different. Which made me think. Maybe we need to have a j’adoube for our digital footprints, a way of signalling innocent intent."

Communities Dominate Brands: The internet, the mobile internet, and nothing but the internet? No. Actually..
"Mobile is the bigger internet. Mobile is the stronger internet. Mobile is the money internet. Mobile is the faster-growing internet. The real internet will not die. It will still continue to grow. But just like radio had to adjust after TV came along, now too, the legacy PC based poor internet (or the free internet, the advertising internet, like the free daily newspapers in many cities) will have to adjust."

Is YouTube the Next Google? - ReadWriteWeb
"Whenever his son needed any information, he would open up YouTube, type in the search term and then just watch the videos that showed up as matches. He never Googled anything; he never went to any other site; his entire web experience was confined to YouTube videos."

Rough Type: Nicholas Carr's Blog: What Tim O'Reilly gets wrong about the cloud
"even on the pure infrastructure end of the industry, power-law distributions (wherein a small number of companies end up capturing most of the business) may well emerge for reasons having little or nothing to do with the network effect"

Johan Söderberg, "Reluctant Revolutionaries — The False Modesty of Reformist Critics of Copyright" | Interactivist Info Exchange
The interactivity of digital media, exemplified with the computer, is a standard point of reference among mainstream scholars who celebrate an end to consumer passivity. Passivity has ended thanks to new commercial technologies, they say. [37] Somehow, the persistence of the commodity form, under which both the television and new digital media technologies have matured, is unmistakably left to the side.
