New media’s just another word for nothing left to lose
Do you often wonder why 20-somethings are not engaging themselves more into revolutionizing the old ways of doing things? Why the participants in Metanomics or We Are the Network are often in their forties or older? At the end of today’s Metanomics show, professor Robert Bloomfield told us why: it’s all about opportunity costs. Young people are [...] November 19, 2009

Breakfast snack
There has been some odd stuff coming through my google alerts lately - not sure if it was doing partial word match or just generally garbled at my end. However this morning we are back on track and it delivered an excellent link. Eric Calvert comments on connectivism in k12 and the struggle when things are blocked. This is the third time recently I have seen similar comments but the best yet. If November 19, 2009

Re: Tomcats, LOLcats, body language or words
by Mary Rearick.  

I could not attend the session, but I listened to it later (although though the recording was not very good). I came away from the presentation thinking about media... and the need to understand the modes of communication related to media (images, sound, etc.). I also thought abut games... language games...

Re: Tomcats, LOLcats, body language or words
by Andrea Neville.  

Hello

I have been reading these threads with interest.

I would think that knowing about LOLcats would not be required for everyone to function online, but if the places you visit keep showing these pictures of cats with oddly spelled words it helps to know what is going on. There would be different things for other spaces. To me it is like walking into a room where somepeople are referencing the (whatever) that happened (whenever) . If you have other points of reference you can still talk to them but if every so often they refer back to the (whatever) and I don't understand that I may be missing large chunks of how they are connecting things.

Sometimes knowing the language surrounding a particular conversation might be the difference between confusion or clarity and insult or humour. Especially in a mostly-text environment. So I agree that not eveyone needs to know LOLcats, but the better I learn whatever languages are in use in the converstation the better I communicate.

Re: help with some clarification please
by roy williams.  

Asako, "Structural properties take over the logic of understanding the networks/society" - exactly.

.

The most incisive analysis of this is in the work of Knorr-Cetina, quoted here in a draft paper

.

"‘Lightness’ is one of Knorr-Cetina’s four key characteristics of “recently emerged complex global microstructures” (ibid.), which highlights the radically different notion of global structures that she has in mind.  She says that “the mechanisms and structures involved suggest a reversal [a ‘devolution’] of the historical trend towards formal, rationalised (bureaucratic organisational) structures … and appear to facilitate a certain non-Weberian effectiveness [which] relies to a far greater extent than hitherto on the systematic and reflexive use of systems of amplification and augmentation [which] seek to exploit the potential for disproportionalities between input and output or effort and effect” (2005:215-216).

She applies this to global financial systems, and global terrorist networks. 

.

Question: could it apply equally to other Internet based networks, like learning networks?
