China, wikis and blogging
Some shorter posts this week as I’m flat out with my “day jobs” and preparing for my upcoming international address at the 7th Annual Information Management Summit in New Zealand. And I just found out I’ll be chairing Day One and even introducing myself – so I’d better prepare some flattering notes about moi!
First Monday has just published the latest issue of their journal. Some interesting pieces.
- Chinese internet censorship: how Chinese Internet companies censor user–generated content, usually by deleting it or preventing its publication.
- Wordlings in a Web 2.0 world: how public language has become impoverished by ‘managerialism’, which frequently reduces language to strings of ‘weasel’ words.
- Learning in and with an open wiki project. There is a chance that Wikiversity will become the Internet’s free university just as Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia on the Internet.
- Not sure if you saw last month’s article on Twitter under the Microscope – so I’ll include it.
