Wrote Smart Mobs

  • “Don’t keep up with the technologies, keep up with the literacies”
  • Good use of Twitter – Comcast cares
  • “softening of time” – General place/time period, all else is negotiated on the fly.
  • Use text msgs – mobs – lowers the threshold for collective actions, i.e. Korea ohmynews – mobilized vote
  • These technologies create a new sense of community – library is community center/third place?
  • Digital natives – self-guided and in need of guidance
  • Communication for collective action
  • Use google adsense
  • “cocreation of culture” – p2p and many 2 many – also cocreation of knowledge
  • thinkcycle – experts around the world come together online to solve problems
  • Videoblogs – video blog conversation – seesmic
  • Folks want to do things for themselves
  • Libraries place –

1. how do you find any answer

2. how do you know if true

  • need IT advocate(s) who is librarian in order to have better maneuverability with tech – future libs also techs
  • enable connections, group forming, open, easy to use, leveraged self interest
