Recently during #journchat, I saw a reference to a post titled Does Your Twitter Handle Belong on Your Resume? The author is a PR college student, and the conversation around the post is mainly tactical, but the bigger picture surrounding our online identities is one I've been wanting to address for some time, so this gives me the opportunity....

This past Saturday I worked with Mike Liebhold, Gene Becker, Anselm Hook, and Damon Hernandez to present the West Coast Augmented Reality Development Camp at the Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, Ca. By all accounts it was a stunning success with a huge turn-out of companies, engineers, designers, makers, artists, geo-hackers, scientists, techies...

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” Friedrich Nietzsche a bit of mock poetry first: " But since, alas! frail Beauty must decay, Curl'd or uncurl'd, since Locks will turn to grey; Since painted, or not painted, all shall fade, And she who scorns a Man, must...

A post by Dharmishta Rood explores the idea of "networked reading," reading where User Generated Content / User Created Content is the primary text. It begins by defining what UGC/UCC is: - Generated in a public digital setting. (ie Email ≠ UCC) - Users input items of creative worth. (ie Google Image ≠ UCC) - "...content...

“A philosopher’s ontology is the set of entities he or she assumes to exist in reality, the types of entities he or she is committed to assert actually exist. Although in the history of philosophy there are a great variety of ontological commitments, we can very roughly classify these into three main groups. For some philosophers reality...

In other words, the genesis of form and structure seems to always involve resources that go beyond the capabilities of the material substratum of these forms and structures....

As many have documented, the foundations of our current state of the Internet (namely the TCP/IP protocols) were developed by Leonard Kleinrock at UCLA in late 1969, with the first Internet connection formed between the UCLA and Stanford campuses. It's good to keep in mind this initial connection, as it summarizes the essence of the Internet: a...

With all the hype flying around Augmented Reality lately, it's easy to assume the nascent tech is just another flash-in-the-pan destined to burn out in a fury of marketing gimmickry & sensational posturing. Yet, it's informative to consider the drivers pushing this trend and to tease out the truly adaptive value percolating beneath the...

The Serious ARG (Alternate Reality Game) In a 2007 article, columnist Chris Dahlen (of Pitchfork Media) voiced a much-discussed ARG concept: if ARGs can spark players to solve very hard fictional problems, could the games be used to solve real-world problems?[37] Dahlen was writing about World Without Oil, the first ARG centered on a serious...
