Pronetos | Why use social networking in Academe? Annotated

Greetings librarians and information professionals! Earlier today, I blogged about why tenured faculty and emeriti should use a social networking site such as Pronetos. The library science community is at the forefront of this new digital age, so I thought you might enjoy the post, which is reposted below.

The idea for my post came from a post by Rikke Agawa at UCLA, a member of the Medical Library Association’s Task Force on Social Networking Software, as is this community’s own Molly Knapp. Thanks Molly and Rikke!

Entreprise 2.0 « NSI Solution | Entreprise 2.0 | Amélioration Continue Annotated

L’entreprise 2.0 est un terme utilisé pour les technologies et les pratiques d’affaires qui libèrent les employés des contraintes des outils standards de communication et de productivité tels que les courriels. Elle donne accès aux dirigeants à la bonne information, au bon moment, à travers un réseau d’applications, de services et de supports matériels interconnectés. L’entreprise 2.0 rend accessible l’intelligence collective de plusieurs personnes, ce qui se traduit en un avantage compétitif majeur en tant qu’augmentation de la créativité, de l’innovation, de la productivité et de l’agilité. – Science Connected Annotated

Monday Inspiration: Crazy Cursors | Design Showcase | Smashing Magazine Annotated

Since mouse cursor is an essential element of user interaction, designers rarely risk to modify its presentation. Usability might keep you away from using experimental solutions in practice, however creative solutions and experiments are worth consideration and always nice to look at. In today’s part of our Monday Inspiration series we’d like to showcase some examples of unusual approaches used for design of… well, mouse cursors!

Google’s Social Design Best Practices – Bokardo Annotated

Social design is design that focuses on the social lives of users. It deals with the activities, behaviors, and motivations of people who work and play together through software interfaces. It is built on the observation that many of the decisions we make are greatly affected by those we surround ourselves with in our social lives: our family, friends, and colleagues. Exploring our motivations and how to design interfaces to support them is what the Bokardo blog is all about.

écrire avec l’autorisation du recteur – Annotated

Auparavant, certains cumuls d’activité étaient soient interdits, soit soumis à une autorisation préalable. Cependant, cela en concernait pas “la production d’oeuvres de l’esprit” (traduction : littérature, théâtre, poésie, mais aussi essais, articles, publication de travaux de recherche), qui s’exerçait “librement”* (voir chapitre IV, article 25, III, de la loi °83-634 du 13 juillet 1983).

Aujourd’hui les fonctionnaires doivent demander une autorisation préalable par voie hiérarchique pour produire “des oeuvres de l’esprit” donc pour écrire. (page 2/5)
Et le chef d’établissement donne son avis (voir l’imprimé).

No tenure for Technorati: Science and the Social Web – john wilbanks’ blog – john wilbanks’ blog on Nature Network Annotated

There’s three barriers to Social Web extracting the wisdom in sciences as it does elsewhere.

The first is the lack of a crowd – not only is the total number of scientists in any one field pretty low in terms of internet numbers, but it’s even lower in reality with specialization.

Second problem is that scientific communication is a different beast than normal human communication. Scientists talk to their friends, but when talking to people they don’t know, it’s much more formal. They use communication to spec theories and to claim ground as theirs.

It’s not a matter of “web 2.0 technology will trump old ways of sharing stuff” (a statement I tend to believe is true) but a matter of “stuff that doesn’t get shared anyway isn’t likely to get shared simply because the technology exists to share it.”

Third problem is that there are no rewards for participating in these new forms of communication. Thus the title of the post. Has anyone gotten tenure for a well-linked blog in the life sciences?

Citations are a place in science where you have demonstrated something to be true (or at least an approximation of truth). They’re a formal style of communication that says, not only is this a fact of nature, but I – ME – am the one who proved it to be so.

Fantasy Of The Day: The Kindle Will Save Papers – Silicon Alley Insider Annotated

We are happy/disappointed to report that the paid NYT version is worse than the free one: The layout is just as clumsy as the web browser version, if not more so. The real problem: Since the paid version is automatically beamed to your reader once a day, you are guaranteed to be reading yesterday’s… non-news. If you’d like to see what’s actually happening in the world, the Kindle insists that you leave your paid subscription — and check out the free version at

Citizendium, One Year Later – Annotated

Citizendium’s article on the economist Milton Friedman, he says, is “extremely short and frankly not very good,” while the Wikipedia article is twice as long and “much more accurate.” Obviously one article can’t speak to the value of the entire enterprise, but it seems clear that some observers will be holding Mr. Sanger to a fairly high standard.

Amazon Kindle E-Book reader reviews – CNET Reviews Annotated

The bottom line:
With its free built-in wireless capabilities and PC-free operation, Amazon’s Kindle holds a distinct advantage over Sony’s Reader and is a promising evolution of the electronic book–but Amazon needs to bring down the pricing for both the device and the content to attract a wider audience.
