Global Warming and the Future

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

People who live in open, democratic, and supportive societies will succeed, and so empowered, people will tend to choose this form of organization. Eric write, It seems so strange/absurd, though, that most Newstrolls regulars never could "get it" despite all the evidence of the global warming urgency posted here over the years. Specifically.

Representing Events, Representing Knowledge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

There is a long history of taxonomy, organization, and encyclopedia. Propaedia is an attempt to make some sense of this body of knowledge, to, as suggested above, to organize knowledge. We may grant that a map is not (always) the best metaphor, but to do away with all organization sounds naive at best and dangerous at worst.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Again, mini-blogospheres -- along with other online communities of interest -- tend to be organized around narrow topics. Prompted by an article in Maisonneuve , the story is circulating once again that the Canadian blogosphere is impotent, that it should be more like its American counterpart and break some big stories. Talked about by whom?

Declan McCullagh wrote: By way of background, here's a cogent argument against "hate crime" legislation: [link] There is no doubt that it is an argument; whether it is cogent is a matter of opinion. Let's examine it. 1. Quite so. Violent acts are already prohibited.

Preserving the Tradition (2)

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

think there is some of this going on in the professional organizations in our field right now. David Wiley offers a measured, though contrary, commentary on my post. This is, in my view, incorrect, and for two related reasons (both based on Kuhn's analysis). They weren't 'mistakes', in any genuine sense of the term. History is important.

On Surveillance

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Re: Canada's Big Brother Plan to Reshape the Internet I think we should be clear that although terrorism is being touted as the reason for these new powers, the intent is to employ them much more broadly, to counteract organized crime generally. For this reason, as Micael Geist observes, the lack of judicial oversight is troubling.

Principles for Evaluating Websites

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

If a news site is secretly sponsored by a religious organization, then the news site is untrustworthy. EDT, July 16, 2005. EDT, July 16, 2005. How do you know whether something you read on the web is true? You can’t know, at least, not for sure. This makes it important to read carefully and to evaluate what you read. Why not?

Liberating Canada?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Then again, the Wall Street Journal is one of America's most blatant propaganda organs, its association with the facts tenuous at best.

Hardly. million.

Being in Charge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

On the bottom rung of the organization chart. I think a lot about power. Today I was reading an article from Fast Company about Commander D. Michael Abrashoff of the USS Benford.
