These are my links for September 14th through September 18th:
- Birmingham City Council Versus the ‘Twitterati’ — Paul Robert Lloyd – Not only did this comment fail to recognise that those disappointed users on Twitter were likely the very same residents and business owners who were using the site, it’s even more striking given Birmingham’s aim to become the digital media capital of Britain.
- Puffbox.com » Archive » Crowdsourcing my business plan – Steph Gray: "I say this to you here, because you asked, but of course I'd say pretty much the same things to anyone"
- Knight News Challenge winner DocumentCloud releases ‘CloudCrowd’ system | Journalism.co.uk Editors’ Blog – “Users will be able to search for documents by date, topic, person, location, etc. and will be able to do ‘document dives’, collaboratively examining large sets of documents. Organisations will be able to do all this while keeping the documents -and readers – on their own sites. Think of it as a card catalogue for primary source documents.”
- Maptivism: Maps for activism, transparency and engagement : crisscrossed blog – "Maps have a long history and since the early days maps have been used for many purposes, such as to show changes through bygone times and to manipulate them for propaganda. But never before it has been so easy for individuals and groups to use maps for own purposes. The Economist goes a step further and writes “mapping technology has matured into a tool for social justice.”"
- Seeds of Web 2.0 « Spaghetti Testing | Peter Smith – "…in a slow-moving, risk-averse bureaucratic context, talking revolution is unlikely to encourage decision makers to take you seriously."
