Conversation Searches

Tony Karrer

What are Conversation Searches? During those presentations, I'll mention what are sometimes called "vanity searches." These searches look for any mention of your name, company, URLs across blogs and other sites. For me, these searches primarily allow me to see what people are saying in response to something that I've put out there. Typically, these responses come via blogs and twitter. In Twitter Search, I look for my name, site names, and tags.

Technology and the Future of Media

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Most everyone will agree that advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) are radically transforming the business landscape. Internet users already spend 20–30% of their time online, mainly engaging with media content… Globalization, deregulation, technological innovation and the convergence of previously separate industries such as media, entertainment, information, and consumer electronics, have created a somewhat turbulent media landscape.”.

The Pull of Narrative – In Search of Persistent Context

John Hagel

  As for text, it has been progressively deconstructed from books to articles to blog postings to 140 character tweets. The technological foundation of narratives. Digital technology provides all of us the ability to define and communicate narratives in rich and textured ways. We live in a world of ever more change and choice , a world where we have far more opportunity than ever to achieve our potential. That kind of world is enormously exciting, and full of options.

Technology Integration in K-12

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked, I''m curious as to what you think the three most important things for new teachers to know about technology integration in k-12? The exact technology doesn''t matter much, and has evolved over the years, from the days of email mailing lists, to community bulletin boards, to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. But it''s important to do something better than just searching on Google; that can drain more time than you can imagine.

» Radical New Innovation at Outside.in: Search! Forgot to mention that we finally restored search to outside.in. We had a pretty lame search function in the original iteration of the site, which we decided to just kill off because it wasnt very useful (and, perhaps because it wasnt useful, no one was using it.) But we decided a few weeks ago to do a little mod of Google site search, which turns out to work very well.

Musing on Google’s Power Searching Course and marketing

Jay Cross

Today I completed Google’s Power Searching Course. Do I know any more about search than I did ten days ago? You can narrow a search by date. Previously I approached Google searches much like looking something up in an encyclopedia or dictionary. After the course, I treat search more as an iterative process. A pre-search can inform the real search. Or after the first search, I can add to the query to zoom in on what I’m after.

Twitter as Search Engine or Community Seed

Nancy White

The folks over at BrandonHall, the learning folks who blog lots of interesting links, pointed out a value of Twitter that not all of us may have seen yet. Twitter as a search engine. But I never really conceptualized it as search. First, I searched for something for me. But you have to have a question in mind to make the search meaningful beyond curiosity. I am not quite as clear about how searching Twitter as a one-off search can pay off.

The evolution of search will refine the spectrum of quality in media

Trends in the Living Networks

Search is not getting better, or it certainly seems that way. In the evolutionary battle between search engines and search engine marketers, the search engines are not keeping ahead, and crap content is finding its way into the top of search results. This makes search users unhappy, opens the way for alternatives to the dominant player in the Western world, AKA Google. In the context of search, if people find what they are looking for, it is high quality.

Where Do Blog Post Ideas Come From?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Someone asked me by email, do you have any advice on how to come up with blog post ideas? The main thing is to be aware of them as possible connections, and when looking at one thing (say, a blog post) to keep other things in the back of your mind, always looking for these connections. I don't always create a blog post; I would be very boring if I did nothing other than blog. Take two blog posts and apply the critical literacies to them, and draw the connections.

But I didn’t have anything useful to add to what thousands of others were showing, posting, tweeting and blogging. Back during Sandy, I had a lot to blog because important stuff wasn’t being said on media major and minor. Search from Google and Bing, while good in many ways, seems hidebound and stale to me. Here’s a Yahoo (Bing) search. So I search for Scituate on Twitter , which is more helpful, but not fine-grained enough.

Learning and micro-blogging

Harold Jarche

That may make Twitter, like blogs, best suited for personal learning environments (PLE) in academia, so that learners can use it for several courses and connect to their non-academic networks as well. Blogs allow this asymmetry but social networks like Facebook don’t. Twitter & blogs foster broadening networks. The mechanics of micro-blogging, like blogging, are rather simple. Of course Twitter is now being hyped, much as blogs were a while back.

Blog Post Updates - Effective Pattern?

The disadvantage is that people who subscribe to my blog will not see the information in their RSS feed or in the daily email.
