Great free lectures online from the School of Information at Berkeley. The lectures are from 2007 to the present and include (among many others):
- "The Internets We Did Not Build" (Dave Clark, MIT)
- "Combating the Participation Gap: Why New Media Literacy Matters" (Henry Jenkins, MIT)
- "(Re-)Defining the Public Domain" (Carl Malamud, Public.Resource.Org)
- "Sustainable Innovation" (Judith Estrin, JLabs)
There really IS more than one internet? First off - I'm no Bush fan, but I'm wondering if his use of the word 'internets' (although probably unintentional) isn't so wrong after all. It's no secret (pardon the pun) to those in the military and government work that there are other 'internets', such as the SIPRNET. I'm no expert on the technicalities, but I think a user could take a leap and say that the NIPRNET and the SIPRNET are two totally different entities. Just pointing out a technicality, spreading a little knowledge, and adding the disclaimer that this post has no bearing on Bush's mishandled use of the term to begin with!
The 2002 contest for The 5k Award has announced a call for entries. The 5k is a contest for, basically, making the coolest thing you can on the web in 5,120 bytes. The first contest was interesting and rewarding, but the second one disappointed, when some truly impressive entries were completely ignored in favor of poor attempts at humor. Here's to hoping the entries will be at least as good as 2001, and the judging will be much better. The deadline for entries is June 16.
