My very short review of Steven Johnson's new book: anthony.thinkingprojects.org
Also, I'm checking the book back into circulation if anyone wants to read it- it should be on the shelf soon: Educat Record
I've talked with Anthony about this a little bit... We need to share photo content better. So, there should definitely be photo archives, and they should probably be in the same location as the Art Collections (except they will not be made public). However, before this happens, there are some details to be ironed out. The goal will be to have one collection (such as "Media Group Images") hold many groups of photos... this way we wont have an out-of-control list of "collections." How about the following:
Is there a way, using this Drupal software, to do the following:See all new comments in one place?receive an email alert when a new blog entry has been posted?receive an email alert when a comment has been made on a blog entry you authored?
- Changes all medium sized images to 400px in width (from 600px in width; 600px was too large for low-resolution screens)
- Created a medium-large image which is 800px in width (for zooming-in)
- Change left bar opacity to 20% when viewing image gallery
- Make thumbnails on splash screen right justified
- Make “Delete this Collectionâ€? only available to super-users
How do we interpret the fact that I am the only one who has uploaded a picture? If our group will not participate in that way, can we really expect other people to be inclided to upload photos of themseleves on the upcoming SocialScholar system?
I fear that the pictures work well on Friendster (and similar services) because without them people will have no chance of finding a potential date. I read in the Freakonomics book that members of ...
An interesting site I learned about while listening to this interview with Andy Hertzfeld. It tells the story of the development of Apple's original Macintosh computer, and the people who created it.
The site was turned into a book as well.
This is interesting --

they look like an interesting bunch of people, even if they only focus on one aspect of the online world. i like the "webbed footnotes" project.
somewhat related to this subject--i think the existence of groups just like this one suggest a course of action for our tech development: open sourcing the code...
Anthony and Hui Soo have made some progess in recent days in making some necessary chnages to the Library's home page. I would like to use this forum to solicit suggestions as to how we might undertake a larger, more comprehensive re-design.
Last night I had a chance to speak with some TC students and their reaction to the librray site was that the current design made it was difficult to find the catlogs and databases. It also seemed that they did not understand our reasoning behind the "Content Collections". They also had concerns about who was involved in picking content for the collec...
