Consider Ari Rabin-Havt, 27, who blogs for a living as a staffer to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, 66. Rabin-Havt’s duties include watching the blogosphere for what’s being said about his boss and others, and helping manage the blog and other web-based activities for Reid.
“Our team is the perfect example of what Digital Humanities can be: a body of work that really cuts across units at universities, libraries, departments, and roles like faculty administration and staff to think about the ways digital tools can help us better understand culture,” says Roopika Risam, a professor of English and library fellow at Salem State University and author of New Digital Worlds, about promoting equity and justice in the digital cultural record.
Television has a patron saint, Clare of Assisi, a nun who had visions in her sickbed of far-away masses. The angel Gabriel, who told Mary about her special child, is the patron of radio – and of postal-workers, stamp collectors, and, don’t ask, Argentinean ambassadors.
They’re not cheap: Those prices translate to $700 for the 8GB and $800 for the 16GB, but as the blurb says, you can slip in any SIM card you like:
There’s a ton of misinformation out there, and it’s always evolving, but there are a few general themes that come up every election cycle.
Technology has inverted traditional power structures with unprecedented swiftness, and the control of almost any situation is gradually shifting into the hands (literally) of whoever’s recording it. Our phones have turned us into socially connected cyborgs, enhancing what it means to see and hear and speak; in taking away the ability to use these devices, we may be compromising something that is becoming not only essential to us, but about us. “Ten years ago, very few people were walking around with a camera or video recording device, and one could easily make the argument that Yondr is merely restoring the status quo,” Schwartz says. “But the question is, are we better off today, now that the average person can instantly document wrongdoing?”
The solution to this and other problems dogging the music industry could be forehead-slappingly simple: one big, free, public database with, at the very least, song titles in one column and unique identifiers in another. When online and mobile music services build their own content databases out of the labels’ catalogs, they would have incentives to use the same numbers to identify each song, for the reasons laid out below. Music services already apply their own unique identifiers to songs in their catalogs, so the use of numbers is not the issue — they just need to be the same numbers.
That’s certainly been the case in the past, but with smartphones getting more powerful and integral to everyone’s lives there is a good chance that this newest crop of calling services could break that cycle. With so many tools and services succumbing to the pull of mobile, it seems inevitable that people will embrace simple apps and simply hang up on the iconic Polycom triangle.
Anyone who knows anything about programming knows that you can easily program a machine to give the voter a paper receipt of how they voted and still record their vote differently (“E-Votes Must Leave a Paper Trail,” Nov. 21, 2003).
“Google saved my ass!” he wrote on his new Weblog.
Chen worked as a teacher at an ACE camp at Stanford in 1998 and served as the academic director for the Teaneck, New Jersey, ACE camp in 1999.
CEOs are paid big bucks to grow a thick skin, put on their big boy pants and hold themselves accountable. Period.
“To think that in an era of embryonic technology and no mobility with the Internet (yet) that they can survive, is very optimistic,” Barrett said.
In the past, the library has had to deal with wax, aluminum and acetate recordings – all things that occupy physical space. This time, instead of worrying about how many shelves the recordings will take up, workers will be thinking about how much server space they need once interviews go online.
Uru Live, the online multiplayer version of the video game Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, shut down its servers Monday night, raising questions about the viability of so-called massive multiplayer online worlds.
As a guy, I’ve always been turned off by the huge “pink” aisle in toy stores — it’s like hanging a big “keep out” sign for boys, and telling girls “Hey, ignore everything else in the store except this aisle.” We don’t spend a lot of time in big box toy stores now, and I know my daughters have a mix of things that are “boy” or “girl” toys. But it’s so hard to fight the marketing.
