Tags: You may have noticed I use a combination of Technorati, IceRocket and other types of "tags" for posts on this blog. Most of the time. Tags are a tool, and sometimes don't yield the results you might expect. Other times, they can attract a landslide of readers. As each individual post is completed, I decide what tags might go with it, and on certain occasions, don't attach any. Like now.
Every blogger wonders about this: Isabella (pictured,right) decided to actually BLOG about it! In Why Should You Care, and So What? Izzy writes "I spend a fair amount of time thinking about why anyone should be interested in anything I do...most content creators working from the premise that art is fun..."
Aaminah: A very interesting piece that takes into account Muslims' “modern” way of life with relevent recommendations. Also be sure to check out the complete new site, New Islamic Directions. Further proof that we do have homegrown scholars that are capable of leading us.
Dave Winer wonders when Social Networks may become de-socialized: "Closed systems are fine in the early stages of a new technology. They're the training wheels for a new layer of users and uses. But, as we always see, the training wheels eventually come off, explosively... Eventually, soon I think, we'll see an explosive unbundling of the services that make up social networks. What was centralized in the form of Facebook, Linked-in, even YouTube, is going to blow up and reconstitute itself..."
BTW: You may see a Twitter Box appear in the sidebar of this blog. My think is to use it in the fashion I once used the now-dead "Sideblog." A place to pop in interesting, wonderful, troubling things as I come across them, without having to go through the ritual of opening up Blogger and making an actual post.
Lotta Holmström: A year ago, Danish newspaper Politiken moved their newsdesk online. Now Berlingske Tidende is taking it one step further. ALL journalists are to work for the web edition as well as for print. Stories will be published online first.
Behind the move is Berlingske’s new editor-in-chief, Lisbeth Knudsen. According to New Media Trends, she says the new strategy has “earthquake” like dimensions.

After reading Lotta's post I began to wonder how Victor Kaonga was doing. My question was answered as soon as I signed onto his most recent blogpost: Any Progress in Global Online Course?
