It's the culture, stupid! How Atlassian maintains an open information culture
Pretty good article about wikis in Atlassian, a wiki-value-added company. The emphasis is on local practices of sharing ("culture" is the code word), and how those practices are made open on local wikis and blogs. Good for outlining some of the possible practices corporate wonks might be asked to engage. Some cheer leading, but worth a butchers.

Joho the Blog » Transparency is the new objectivity
Dave Weinberger. "transparency is now fulfilling some of objectivity’s old role in the ecology of knowledge." that is, "Transparency gives the reader information by which she can undo some of the unintended effects of the ever-present biases. Transparency brings us to reliability the way objectivity used to."

Twitter in higher education
Really just a technique or two > A better model for twitter integration was suggested which I quite like. This would involve defined periods when students were encouraged to ‘tweet’. For example, 20 minutes in you say to the students “for the next 3 minutes discuss with your neighbour the issues raised so far (or have a specific question you want them to answer). Please feel free to ‘tweet’ your thoughts or questions using the tag #xxxx”. The lecturer could then choose to take a couple of minutes to respond there and then or follow up after the class.

I’m So Totally, Digitally Close to You - Clive Thompson -
Updates and weak ties. Always on means a return to village life, where everyone knows what everyone else is doing. Monitor your online persona so you can control it. "This is the paradox of ambient awareness. Each little update — each individual bit of social information — is insignificant on its own, even supremely mundane. But taken together, over time, the little snippets coalesce into a surprisingly sophisticated portrait of your friends’ and family members’ lives, like thousands of dots making a pointillist painting. This was never before possible, because in the real world, no friend would bother to call you up and detail the sandwiches she was eating." "“It drags you out of your own head,” she added. In an age of awareness, perhaps the person you see most clearly is yourself. "

Wired Campus: Professor Says Free Lectures Did Not Boost Book Sales, Contrary to 'Wired' Editor's New Book -
Fun stuff, with a Wired editor arguing for causation, an academic author arguing a fluke, and commentators arguing both ways. The article is written so that all can have their say, which by my book, is the New Journalism.

The Conversation Prism
A PR piece version of Rhetoric 101. Useful and revealing for the language the authors use to frame their version of social exchange - even while they hold themselves up as non-experts.

"People aren’t lured into relationships simply because you cast the bait to reel them into a conversation.

"Sincerity extends beyond the mere act of creating a profile on Twitter or forming a fan page on Facebook or a group on LinkedIn. The dual definition of transparency serves very different forms of both genuine and hollow separated by intent and impression. Relationships are measured in the value, action, and sentiment that others take away from each conversation. Talking “at” or responding without merit, intelligence, or quality grossly underestimates the people you’re hoping to befriend and influence.

"If participation were this simple, then perhaps everyone would excel as a Social Media “expert.”'

From Knowledgable to Knowledge-able: Learning in New Media Environments | Academic Commons
Wesch. "As we increasingly move toward an environment of instant and infinite information, it becomes less important for students to know, memorize, or recall information, and more important for them to be able to find, sort, analyze, share, discuss, critique, and create information. They need to move from being simply knowledgeable to being knowledge-able."

While well worth reading and citing, there isn't much new in this article. It's solid anthropological principles and understanding applied to teaching and learning.

Alana Taylor: Online Reputation: A Love/Hate Relationship
I, for one, don't really mind being open online. I think that having a blog is one of the best ways of managing your personal brand and controlling your reputation. A blog allows you to write your side of the story -- always. If there was a picture that was posted or comment that was made about you that you didn't approve of or that you want to explain... your blog is the place to do it.
