last mile/foot/inch delivery of…learning
disintermediating learning platforms so that there is no last mile
the increasing frequency of unknown unknowns and how to deal with them as they erupt
the unhappy/happy realization that perhaps the tygers of wrath really are wiser than the horses of instruction
Here is an editable/addable/retractable/detractable space if you wanna join in the HOMAGOSOTOL (hanging out, messing about, geeking out, sharing out, thinking out loud.)
Somebody hacked a public billboard. Any connected thing is capable of being hacked. The Internet of Things is a growing universe of things to be hacked. What happens when the most routine aspects of our day can grow out of control. How do you grab control of a billboard? Signage and video everywhere has the potential to be a public embarrassment/a public statement. What will our response be: the terrorist response and the application of overwhelming force including more burdensome laws and regulations or censorship of public signage or ever more draconian security measures or what?
“I saw a woman pinned under concrete,” Shah told NBC New York. “A lot of people were bleeding; one guy was crying.”
I was very upset by this story but even more troubled that a parallel story about Beyonce bleeding onstage after an earring mishap was trending higher than the Hoboken story. Logically, I should not be so upset. The only connection is the Google algorithm that ‘argues’ the importance of Beyonce uber alles. I suppose it is the same kind of problem I have with the human journalistic algorithm that says “if it bleeds, it leads”. I have an anti-filter that opposes this. so…I created a screencast about ‘people bleeding’ that shows why I am upset. A woman pinned under concrete should not get less attention than a celebrity bleeding from a nasty, but in no way life-threatening, earring ‘malfunction’.
