One man's Net

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Jay Cross[Edit][Delete]: One man's Net, Internet Time [Edit][Delete] May 29, 2006
Small world. Jay Cross links to a 2002 essay by Wes Cooper, Information Technology and Internet Culture, which, drawing on Turkle, depicts the internet as an instrument for the creation of identities and of cultures.

Fear and Loathing on the Internet

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Tim Stahmer: Fear and Loathing on the Internet, Assorted Stuff  May 4, 2006
"User-generated content is very difficult to manage and control." This assessment comes in the midst of a user rebellion at YouTube against increased censorship and control.

The Strength of Internet Ties

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Jeffrey Boase, et.al.[Edit][Delete]: The Strength of Internet Ties, Pew [Edit][Delete] January 25, 2006

A Pew study is released which casts doubt on the idea that online communication weakens local and family ties. Instead, the internet has assumed a role in supplementing those ties (the report even notes that people with more local ties also use the internet more frequently) while at the same time providing people with access to multiple communities worldwide from which they can draw help and support.

The Use of the Internet to Activate Latent Ties in Scholarly Communities

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Paul Genoni, Helen Merrick and Michele Willson: The Use of the Internet to Activate Latent Ties in Scholarly Communities, First Monday December 14, 2005

Latent contacts are those people you would contact, but for some reason, have not contacted. A natural example is the connection of podcast researchers in education; as people developed expertise in the subject the would reach out to other people in the same field, if they knew they existed. Eventually these latent contacts do make a connection, usually via blog or email. More...
