  • perpetual beta
    • users affect the tech cycle
    • user-generated content
    • friendship-based – extremely social – sense of community
    • the profile = real world – dress a certain way | online – ip address – so create identity ; self-expression ; decorate your “space”
    • public articulation of friends = very teen – 3 clusters – 20-25 friends (actually interact)– 200 friends (school/community contacts)– collect as many as possible
    • social norms – top friends = bands – online social rules
    • comments = the wall – not much content – social grooming (not only place to communicate)
    • status updates = I am “fill in the blank with emotion” – peripheral awareness – micro blogging (tweets) – making sure everyone is ok/checking in (this is the mall)
    • why? Young folks aren’t allowed to wander around outside – stuck inside – fear – overstructuring of lives; lack of mobility; parents work;
    • required to have a presence online –
    • these are public spaces!!! Properties – understand these properties, not necessarily the technology
      • persistence – comments stick around – ephemeral acts are persistent
      • replicability – copy & paste (what’s the original?) – mashups
      • scalability – avg blog is read by 6 people – not necessarily “public” – attention driven medium
      • searchability – become searchable by folks who hold power over you
      • invisible audiences – we don’t know who’s watching/hearing/reading – friends = creates the audience that person is “speaking” to
      • collapsed context – no walls or alcohol online ;
      • public = private – how we control the space
    • social and information ecology changes
    • del.icio.us = organizing info – public norm
    • public creation of knowledge – Wikipedia – most transparent production of knowledge
    • librarians should participate in this production of knowledge – share how is knowledge produced – academic cycle!!
    • i.e. American revol wiki article – british and American scholars revisiting/arguing about this history
    • fan fiction vs copyright – it’s how we interact we books
    • this is an attention economy
    • problems – conflicts – social norms, the market, technologies, the law (this piece is slowest to move)
    • net neutrality – all bits are created equal – affects the future of innovation
    • DRM – locking down of content defectivebydesign.org
    • Fair use – what does it mean in the media world “cease & desist”
    • Coming up – mobility!! iPhone/Android – web 2.0 + mobile
      • Cluster affects – people expects standardization – right now, mobile is not –
    • Delocatability – no matter where you are in the physical world – bring your friends with you; take your physical space to the net (gps)
    • We are in a big melting moment – take the histories we have and share – can’t play ostrich – tech is here to stay
