This is a variation on donor-based funding for open source software (and therefore, open content). The idea is that donors contribute to a pool of money, and then donations are allocated by the number of people supporting given projects, as opposed to the size of the donations to those projects. This works against the phenomenon of rich donors picking winners, a valuable idea...

This is testimony from the co-founder of Basecamp on the subject of North Dakota's Senate Bill number 2333 on the subject of app stores. The bill is a short and clear two pages saying that platforms may not (quoted):

  • Require a developer to use a digital application distribution platform or digital transaction platform as the exclusive mode of distributing a digital product.
  • Require a developer to use an...

To protect yourself from disinformation and fake news you should determine whether the speaker is an authority on the subject. That's what a lot of digital literacy guides say. But it's wrong on two fronts. First, a lot of authorities are wrong, or worse, deceitful. And second, a lot of non-authorities are right. So how do you decide? The answer is to never trust just...

On the Indieweb

Publicado en OLDaily el 11/02/2021

Stephen Downes, Feb 11, 2021

I think we have to return to what we think the Indieweb is. The original goals were ownership, control, do-it-yourself, and inter-connectivity. These have morphed into some sort of amalgam of code camps and self-authored software. But I think that if we revisit these in the spirit of social and community benefit, we can envision something more encompassing.

Praxis and the Indieweb

Publicado en OLDaily el 11/02/2021

Daniel Goldsmith, Feb 11, 2021

This is an excellent post analyzing the weaknesses of the Indieweb as it is currently constituted. You may have already seen my response. Daniel Goldsmith makes the point that the Indieweb is target-blind, exclusionary, and "has at its core a significant barrier to entry." I can't disagree. It...

I don't talk to myself out loud, probably because my inner voice is loud enough for both of us. But like John Stuart Mill, I have found teaching to be an excellent way to learn something, especially if I have to work through something out loud. That's why giving talks has been so important...

Unpublishing

Kieran Forde sent me a pointer to a list of articles on the topic of 'unpublishing' in journalism. It raises for me a host of questions. After all, while on one hand newspapers complain about people using their headlines for free, on...

I have a very strong inner voice that talks to me constantly (though I can sometimes shut it off with music, a skill I had to learn). I am fond of my inner voice; it literally is me. But like the author, I have no "mind's eye". I can't 'see' things when I visualize; all my mental...

Alternatives to Correct and Incorrect

Connie Malamed, The eLearning Coach, Feb 10, 2021

This is a fairly basic list of alternatives to feedback of the form 'correct' and 'incorrect' but it's worth thinking about. The section on incentivized feedback made me think about No Man's Sky. The interface is basically based on point-and-click (such as shooting things)...

Data is useful – but context is king

Publicado en OLDaily el 09/02/2021

JISC, Feb 09, 2021

According to this article, " Data can tell us ‘what’, but not ‘why’. This is the message presented by Prof Bart Rienties, professor of learning analytics at The Open University (OU)." I think he's presenting a narrow view of 'data' as (say) the statistics we get from on learning analytics. Data tells us not only 'what', but also 'why', 'when', 'how much...

Ethics of the GameStop Short Squeeze

I think there's a pretty good object lesson in ethics around the GameStop short squeeze (previously covered here) but I hope that instructors discussing the lesson view it more broadly than Oxford research fellow Doug McConnell....
