stevenberlinjohnson.com: Why The Web Is Like A Rain Forest

Steven Berlin Johnson

For most readers here, I suspect that the example scenario I give will be old news, but the more interesting stuff comes at the end. October 03, 2005 in Articles , Web | Permalink Comments Nice piece Steven. For example, an industrial forester views dead and dying old trees as "decadent" and fallen logs as "waste."

The Value of Work

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My favorite example is, of course, the pet rock, which would no doubt have been included in the manufacturing statistics, not to mention the GDP, but which consisted entirely of empty production. The nature of janitorial services would change almost overnight, for example. We would, for example, expect a proliferation of the arts.

Technorati's Statistics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

If we look at the chart provided, the number of posts using "tags or categories" was zero as of january 1, 2005. To create a chart, therefore, showing zero instances as of January 1, 2005, is grossly misleading. Sorry to complain, but this report is almost completely implausible. And Here's 359,000 more.

Balance

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Their political objectives sway them to lavish their attention on the one side, which may be, for example, the counter-demonstrators, so much so that any resemblance to reality is lost in the process. Typical liberal hypocracy. Nice argument. Except, I don't argue for balance. That's why intelligent design does not belong in science classes.

Taxes, Corruption and Belief

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It does not, for example, take into account federal and provincial jurisdiction. While even Conservatives recognize that the government needs some tax base in order to continue operations, the sorts of taxes they favour are not income, equity, or other wealth-based taxes, but rather, consumption taxes, of which the GST is a prime example.

Opposing the $100 Computer

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

They should be combined with other programs, such as electrification, transportation and communications infrastructure, banking (and, for example, microloans) services, the rationalization of trade laws, and more. Henderson is wrong about one thing: the poor don't survive. This is probably true. Survival comes first.

Chomsky's Trust

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Re: The Branding of the World's Top Intellectual: Noam Chomsky This article is a rather straightforward (and fairly boring) instance of the logical fallacy known as Ad Hominem Tu Quoque. " For example , when one is arguing 'Jack is a murderer', Jack or Jack's defendent says 'You're a murderer too'. More here.

Standing Alone

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Ludwig Wittgenstein, for example: a former prisoner of war, master logician and theorist of language (whose mere thoughts would likely have been themselves a masterpiece, were they to be captured and printed), possibly gay (and who would have witnessed the destruction of colleague Alan Turing from close range). What would go through his mind?

Evidence and Obesity

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

If you look at the ADA evidence summary , for example, you see the majority of studies showing a greater and more defined correlation between unhealthy eating and obesity. Re: No Fizzy Drinks, Please. The author cites "a recent Canadian study." The study in question is Paul J. Veugelers, PhD and Angela L.

The Paucity of Intelligent Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To be sure, an instance of Sanata within the domain of math - the calculus version of flying reindeer, for example - would pose a problem for math. But it's not like science cannot handle such counter-examples. Take, for example, flu vaccines. Well, let's go through the author's (*cough*) argument point by point. Well, fine.

Hate Crime Legislation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The specific example cited by the author is misleading. Hate crime legislation already exists in nations around the world, for example, in Canada. History is filled with examples. Let's examine it. 1. Quite so. Violent acts are already prohibited. The so-called 'Hate Crimes Prevention Act' is not going to prevent anything.

U.S. Drugs, Canadian Prices

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For example, over the last ten years, the pharaceutical industry twice managed to convince the Canadian government to extend patent protection. Re: So Much For American Sovereignty Well, I must say, that was a pretty funny article. Not intentionally so, perhaps, but funny nonetheless. Let's deal with patents first. So they made a deal.

Principles for Evaluating Websites

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

When you read it in the newspaper, for example, it was probably true. For example, they often use adjectives and adverbs to suggest how you should feel about something. Convert any loaded terms to neutral terms (for example, convert a sentence like “He claimed…” to “He said…”). EDT, July 16, 2005. EDT, July 16, 2005.

Contra Canadian Media

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Social networking and Web 2.0, for example, is a major story, and at the centre of Web 2.0 is Flickr, the company founded by and brought to prominance by the blogosphere. It all goes to foster the myth that we are somehow underdeveloped in Canada, that we would be so much better if only we were like the Americans. We are having an impact.

Preserving the Tradition (2)

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For example, they will be interested in literature that shows that certain approaches "work." To say otherwise is to say (for example) that 50 Cent is *not* a musician, not a steward of music, unless he plays Bach. David Wiley offers a measured, though contrary, commentary on my post. It's a case of "you can't get there from here".

Representing Events, Representing Knowledge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The latter, for example, is a French invention, the Encyclopédie of Denis Diderot (1750-1772). Some examples of associated resources include: - agenda - PowerPoint - MP3 recording - blog post summary It should be noted that such associated resources will often be generated independently of the event. No connections: no knowledge.

On Surveillance

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The chaos that can be caused on the network, for example by spammers and virus writers, and in society, by terrorists and organized crime, is sufficient to argue for some sort of constraint. The covert actions of the RCMP during the FLQ crisis remain within living memory, and the excesses of McCarthyism a decade or so earlier also.

Snake Oil

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Where this has been tried - Argentina, for example - the results have been impressive. public education, for example, will produce increases in GDP well beyond the 0.6 In order to qualify for more loans to pay their debts, countries were required to cut social spending and remove restrictions on markets. The result?

Metadata

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For example, in a fully normalized database, the string 'Alberta' would only be stored once, and all instances of 'Alberta' in an address would be a pointer to this string in the 'provinces' table. For example, the entry '11829-118 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T3C 2P4' should never be entered in a database more than once. Still.

The Best Days of Hockey

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Because scoring is sometimes difficult in hockey - because, for example, teams can play the trap and stymie even skilled teams - it requires a more sensitive eye for detail. Sheesh, why don't they just convert hockey into basketball and be done with it. Scording goals isn't supposed to be easy, it's supposed to be hard. Welcome to hockey.

Kisangani

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

There [is a] remarkable similarity between the map of Africa's civil wars and the map of its precious resources: the Democratic Republic of the Congo (gold and diamonds), Angola (diamonds and oil), Sudan (oil), Sierra Leone (diamonds) and Liberia (diamond trafficking and timber) are the most obvious examples. For AIDS in Afghanistan, is it?"

Failing to Connect

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

That we hurt developing nations, for example, if we give them knowledge for free. The dumping of free food on a nation, for example, prices food below the level of sustinance for local farmers, in effect killing the local farming industry. Lawrence lessig writes of a talk he gave in South Africa promoting Creative Commons. It's not.

Help

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

But in order to qualify for this help, the recipient must satisfy certain conditions - taking a course in computing, for example. Most aid programs, for example, require that the materials purchased for the provision of aid be purchased from the donot nation. Right. changes the 'help' relation to something else. So what is help?

Decomposting Socialism

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Many income-support programs vary by contribution - Canada's Employment Insurance, for example. Canada's 'baby bonus' program, for example, is paid to everyone who has a baby, rich or poor. People who think hockey games should not have scores, for example. How many times do we have to hear these tired old stereotypes?
