Vigilance for the truth

Vigilance is still king. Democratic ideals require a few things to function on the network: We need identity. We need persistence. We need transparency. We need multiple people to care. With these, the voice of everyone has a chance against the voice of the motivated, the monied, and/or the already powerful. Without vigilance, the story […]

This is a Website

Back to basics. Zeldman re-nails the truth to the door: We were struggling, whether we knew it or not, to found a more fluid society.

A reading list as personal description

Eugene Eric Kim has captured my attention before. And now he’s done it again a few minutes ago: What My Reading List Says About Me I’m a hard one to nail down. I have lots of different interests, and while they’re all form an integrated whole in my head, that may not be as apparent […]

Field Report from Collective Intelligence 2012

It was an amazing trip to MIT this week. I spent a beautiful three sunny days in Cambridge visiting friends and attending the Collective Intelligence 2012 conference. I was there to present my dissertation work (a little depressingly compressed into an 8-page paper and poster) to some of the smartest people I have ever met. […]

claimID all over again

So, it seems we were onto something with claimID. Just not quite at the scale we needed back in 2005. Today, Google launched “Me on the Web” as part of their Google Dashboard. However, your online identity is determined not only by what you post, but also by what others post about you — whether […]
