Rethinking Education… Together

Collaboration – Participation – Community Building

“…[M]ore of what makes for human welfare depends on
info, knowledge and culture,
and social production and
peer production
is beginning to produce what we need;
software, textbooks, publishing.”

-Yochai Benkler, Professor of Law, Yale Law School

Rethinking to Rebuild

Professor Michael Wesch, Head of Digital Ethnography at Kansas State University, 2008 U.S. Professor of the Year and producer of the ground breaking viral video “Web 2.0 … The Machine is Us/ing Us” starts us on a new conversation with “Rethinking Education.”

Key clips in the video includes the contributions of Ray Kurzweil, Bruce Sterling, John Willinsky and more.

We have escaped a previous box, we don’t know where we are..
-Bruce  Sterling

There really requires the commons to come up with some of this stuff.
-Clay Shirky

Why would people construct knowledge…?
-John Willinsky

Why we Blog

Owl in Flight

As if it isn’t enough: the random joke email , chain letters, Evites, Mob hits, pokes, Meetups, etc.

Well, there is also the occasional welcomed communication:

So why do we blog?

We blog to share, and we share because we care. We want to be heard, to be found, bought from, sold to, “friended”, collaborated with, retweeted and even married.

The above photo comes from a blog whose raison d’être is self entitled, “Things You Would Know if we Didn’t Blog Incessantly.”

So why do you blog?

Mashup: The Winning Combination

I was once told that “progress” is the combination of elements or events in to one, to where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.

There is an evolution of information happening by way of the Internet. Whole new effects, ideas and solutions are being produced. New ways of looking at old problems, new collaborative opportunities to co-develop, borrow and share enable the production of effects, ideas and solutions that used to take enormous amounts of resources to produce before.Google Map Mashup Homes for Sale

A “mashup” is the manifestation of progress in the Information Age.

By combining information that is bought, found, shared, borrowed or collaboratively developed, we can now produce ideas, solutions and products at an alarming rate. Think Google Maps overlaid with houses for sale, or a video of Dora the Explorer mashed with the music of Soulja Boy.

Progress. We can create more and faster than ever before.

The below video is a brilliant example of a video mashup.

Employing “user-submitted” YouTube content as his sole building blocks, Israeli musician and producer Kutiman’s ThruYOU — a mini-album’s worth of A/V material with revelatory results.

It’s a tribute to bedroom musicians. Kutiman carefully credits all of the musicians he samples, giving many unknowns a good 15 minutes of fame.

-from Kelly McKnight‘s FaceBook review of Kutiman’s “ThruYou.”
