Web 2.0 and trusting the users

The CTO Project makes an interesting observation that faculty are a bit like some corporations. They feel obligated to use Web 2.0 technologies in order to engage student interest and actually make some token effort to be up to date. But that they only want these technologies if they can exert complete control.

Trust me, I can relate. We’re currently contracting with a part of the government that wants to do something similar. They want to make use of the knowledge of a number of experts to produce an encyclopedia of a given technology. Of course, this has been dubbed the FOOpedia (where FOO is the technology).

In the first phase, they laid out an outline of the field. There were to be top level items that only they could edit, secondary items which would be owned by specific individuals and third level items which would be links to support documentation like powerpoint slides and papers. Control of the site was to be pretty restricted, but they did know that they wanted to use a wiki.

Kill me now.

So, in working with them for a bit, I think we’ve talked them out of the rigidly structured, top-down, hierarchical encyclopedia and have gotten them to embrace something a bit more organic.  They’re still not comfortable with a completely open system.  We’re looking at a model comparable to Scholarpedia or Citizendium where there’s a person responsible for each article and he or she will have the final editorial say over that topic.  But at least we’re no longer trying to define all of the pages in advance.  I’ll call it a win.

1. Create jobs with a big government investment in infrastructure 2. Make college debt free for all 3. Encourage companies to share profits with their employees 4. Make the rich (and Wall Street) pay more in taxes 5. Put “families first” in the economy by raising the minimum wage, enacting paid family leave and expanding preschool for all.Days later, possibly worrying that his reputation as an immortal was in danger, Urban strategically took a bunch of shrapnel to the chest and survived. Unfortunately, the unbreakable captain finally ran out of luck when he got shot in the fucking neck and Wait, what? He actually survived that, and despite losing his voice, led his men to victory, survived the war, and lived for another 51 years?!How much thought do we give to government? Not much, except for the times when things like roads, phone lines, and the economy are jammed. Tax returns remind us of the government too, so do hurricanes, dwindling http://www.cheapjerseysselling.com social security and politicians. My point is, the government doesn’t remind us of the good things in life, not often. When it works, we barely notice, but when things go wrong, the glaring deficiencies of the system present themselves everywhere. This piece is not, however, about the shortcomings of our government and whether we can find solutions to them, a task that seems to be way beyond any human endeavor, but about the forms that governments have, both in theory and the real world.1/2 cup all bran cheap nfl jerseys cereal: http://www.cheapnfljerseyssu.com 93 mg1 ounce dry roasted cashews: 74 mg1/4 cup oil roasted peanuts: 63 mg1 cup soymilk, plain: 61 mg1/2 cup edamame (shelled and cooked): 50 mg1 tablespoon almond butter: 45 mg1/4 cup cooked spinach: 39 mgone packet instant oatmeal: 36 mg1/4 cup black beans: 30 mg1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter: 25 mgone slice whole wheat bread: 23 mg1/2 cup plain skim milk yogurt: 21 mg1/4 cup long grain brown rice: 21 mg1/4 cup kidney beans: 18 mg1/4 cup black eyed peas: 17 mg1/2 medium banana: 16 mg1/2 cup milk (low fat): 17 mg1/4 cup raisins: 12 mg1/4 cup cubed avocado: 11 mg1 ounce halibut: 8 mgThe amount of magnesium in a food can vary depending cheap football jerseys on serving size or brand.

This finding is in agreement with previous studies demonstrating Authentic Jerseys Wholesale that both c Jun expression and N terminal phosphorylation are dependent on JNK activity.1, 4, 14 In contrast, lithium significantly NFL Jerseys Cheap impaired T91 phosphorylation, whereas had no effects on S63 phosphorylation or JNK activation.
