  • 118 - Online Communities Map (Not For Navigation) « Strange Maps
    Somewhat in the style of a treasure map, this ‘Map of Online Communities’ shows MySpace, Wikipedia, SecondLife and other user-generated phenomena now populating the internet. The geography is not as random as one could assume at first glance. Area and position are significant. Thus, each community’s geographic area represents its estimated size, and the ‘compass-shaped island’ gives clues as to what each quarter signifies: * North are more ‘practical’ communities, * South is for the ‘intellectuals’. * West lie the communities with a ‘real life’ connection, * East those with a focus on the web itself.

  • Eric S. Raymond: How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
    In the world of hackers, the kind of answers you get to your technical questions depends as much on the way you ask the questions as on the difficulty of developing the answer. This guide will teach you how to ask questions in a way more likely to get you a satisfactory answer. Now that use of open source has become widespread, you can often get as good answers from other, more experienced users as from hackers. This is a Good Thing; users tend to be just a little bit more tolerant of the kind of failures newbies often have. Still, treating experienced users like hackers in the ways we recommend here will generally be the most effective way to get useful answers out of them, too. The first thing to understand is that hackers actually like hard problems and

  • FON
    FON is the largest WiFi community in the world. Our members share their wireless Internet access at home and, in return, enjoy free WiFi wherever they find another Fonero’s Access Point. It all started as a simple idea. Why should you pay for Internet access on the go when you have already paid for it at home? Exactly, you shouldn’t. So we decided to help create a community of people who get more out of their connection through sharing. As the world of WiFi is growing, you can do more and more for free. For example soon we will launch the Skype FON - a cool WiFi handset that lets you make free Internet calls from any FON Access Point.

  • Global Guerrillas
    THE ROLE OF CITIES - Within the context of emerging theories of system disruption, that are emerging as this war slowly ramps-up, cities play an entirely different role. As the events in Baghdad are proving daily, cities can be engineered to radiate instability rather than dampen it. This is accomplished through acts that leverage three attributes of modern cities. These include: * Extreme mobility and interconnectedness (ie, high rates of automobile and cell phone ownership). * Complete reliance on high volume infrastructure networks. * Complex and heterogeneous social networks that are held together under pressure. Blitzing the system The key to unlocking the disruptive potential of cities within this new form of warfare, is to attack key points (systempu

  • Global Guerrillas: TERRORIST NETWORKS: Advanced Topics 070216
    The media term "amorphous terrorist network" doesn't provide much for us to work with. That changes when you apply advanced network theory to the topic. A recent paper by the student Mitch Stripling called, "Embodying Terror Networks: How Direction Creates Structure" (PDF) is a great example of this. The paper starts with a strongly written review of how network theory has been applied to this topic. This review starts with the early work by Arquilla and Ronfeldt (Networks and Netwars) and their simplistic chain, star, and all-channel network topographies and continues to the highly connected hubs (which embodies both the vulnerability and resilience of this type of network topology) and power-law distributions of scale-free networks (for more, read the bri

    I finally got around to completing my ideas on social bookmarking in writing. I tried over twelve popular services to see which one would meet my needs best. I have not described much about how to use a social bookmarking service since the actual methods of usage can vary based on which service you pick. In general though, always try searching for tags that best describe your topic. Also see this article on searching to learn how to find information anywhere on the internet.

  • Obsidian Wings: Wiki THIS
    Glenn Reynolds laments that he's been wiki'ed with a truly bizarre Wikipedia entry on Instapundit. "WIKIPEDIA, and its trustworthiness, has become a topic of considerable discussion," he writes. Indeed, it should be -- this whole Wiki-thang has been a bit Arthur 2 (i.e., "on the rocks") for a while. Eugene Volokh and Orin Kerr have been quite right in their criticisms (even though it seems that Volokh's Wikipedia entry is at least tentatively grounded in fact.) Moreover, adding to the confusion and potential for bias is the fact that you're able to write your own entry. The entry on LGF, for instance, was written by LGF's own Charles Johnson.

  • Platform Wars: TCP/IP vs. the Dollar
    Donna Bogatin : � Social Web or Business Web: where is the money? Naturally, people are fascinated by this question of "where's the money?" But it's the wrong question. The more interesting one is "why the money"? And it's still gonna take us a long time to get our heads around that. But that's what we're all gonna be asking at some point. The more effective the internet and the web are at helping us communicate and co-ordinate, the less money will be involved. Because ultimately the economy is a communication network and money is its protocol The network is not the means to the end of money.

  • Simple Tools for Software Modeling OR- It's "Use the Simplest Tool" not "Use Simple Tools"
    One of the most commonly asked questions asked by developers is “What tool(s) should we use?” Although there are as many answers to this question as people asking it, I would like to provide a few words of advice to help guide you: “Use the simplest tools possible.” Why simple tools? Simple tools are easy to learn, easy to use, and very often easy to share with others. Yes, complex tools have their place, assuming they provide the best value for your investment in them, but never underestimate the effectiveness of simple tools either.<<management>>

  • The Playboy Interview: Marshall McLuhan
    In 1961, the name of Marshall McLuhan was unknown to everyone but his English students at the University of Toronto--and a coterie of academic admirers who followed his abstruse articles in small-circulation quarterlies. But then came two remarkable books-- "The Gutenberg Galaxy" (1962) and "Understanding Media" (1964)--and the graying professor from Canada's western hinterlands soon found himself characterized by the San Francisco Chronicle as "the hottest academic property around." He has since won a world-wide following for his brilliant--and frequently baffling--theories about the impact of the media on man; and his name has entered the French language as mucluhanisme, a synonym for the world of pop culture.

  • WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future: What Happens When Things Get Free?
    Chris Anderson - Mr. Long Tail, editor of Wired Magazine - makes a great decision here at Pop!tech: assuming that everyone in the audience has either read The Long Tail or knows the argument, he gives a different talk: “What Happens When Things Get Free?” (It covers much of the same ground as the book, but draws a different narrative through many of the same examples.) He starts with a photo of Dr. Carver Mead. Mead started thinking about what happens as semiconductors get cheap to the point where they’re free. The answer is, “you should waste them.” This insight led to VLSI - Very Large Scale Integration - chips that included thousands of transitors, not just single ones.

    Med digitala medel kan man dela med sig av sina verk, dokumentationer av foto/ljud/film eller rent digitala verk, nästan gratis. Vi tror att sådana här utbyten gagnar konstscenen och öppnar upp för ett mindre bajsnödigt klimat. Därför har vi skapat Bytlanas, ett fint forum där ett utbyte kan ske konstnärer emellan och mellan konstnärer och publik. Bytlanas ordnar bytesträffar dit folk kommer för att byta till sig digitaliserad konst och lämna sin egen i utbyte. Materialet lagras i våra datorer och görs tillgängligt för nedladdning här på sidan i form av Bytlanas Mixtape, en rykande färsk konstsamling i digitalformat.
