Friends reviewing friends

David Weinberger

Amazon is refusing to post reviews when its algorithms sense a personal relationship between the author and the reviewer. Amazon says, “We are removing your reviews because you know the author personally,” according to Chris Morran at The Consumerist. A review is likely to be swayed by a personal friendship. That’s why some of us disclose friendships when posting reviews at Amazon.

Open – Review

I received a copy of Dave Gray’s The Connected Company from O’Reilly books and must say that Dave has done a great job. It is a comprehensive read, covering complexity and networks, and how they are changing business.

Instant review: The Interview

David Weinberger

I watched The Interview tonight in part because for $6.00 I wanted to see it, and in part because I want to encourage this mode of distribution — no, not by the intervention of terrorists but over the Web. Given the build up, I was surprised that it’s not a political satire at all. It’s a media satire. The butt of the jokes are the media, with Kim Jong Un there merely as a convenient villain. The first two thirds were pretty funny.

[review] Cheap Complex Devices

David Weinberger

I’ve got an ever-growing list of books that I intend to write reviews of because they’re so damn interesting. In fact, it’s because they deserve full reviews that I’m not writing any reviews. So, with the knowingly-false intention of coming back to write a longer review, here’s a brief report on one book on my list. As Julianne Chatelain says in her review , it “contains sentences of terrible beauty that are also terribly funny.&#

Harold Jarche

When things go wrong, people have a tendency to want to blame someone, often as soon as possible. It makes us feel better to find the culprit or get the ‘bad apple’ We have the opposite tendency when it comes to ourselves.

Reviewing elearning examples

Clark Quinn

Seven courses were identified as ‘finalists’, and my task was the review each and assign points in several categories. I recently wrote about elearning garbage , and in case I doubted my assessment, today’s task made my dilemma quite clear. I was asked to be one of the judges for an elearning contest. Only one was worthy of release, and only one other even made a passing grade. This is a problem. Let me get the good news out of the way first.

The Problem with Literature Reviews

George Siemens

As any student knows, a literature review is the starting point for almost any article or essay. When at the level of writing a thesis or dissertation, a review of literature is critical. However, I have issues with reviews. Almost every paper started with a literature review and then moved into the author’s ideas/research. A literature review is a context forming activity. Put another way, a literature review is a controlling, heritage-preserving system.
