“One of the points that this text argues hard­est about is the need to reform peer review for the dig­i­tal age, insist­ing that peer review will be a more pro­duc­tive, more help­ful, more trans­par­ent, and more effec­tive process if con­ducted in the open. And so here’s the text, prac­tic­ing what it preaches, avail­able online for open review.” — new ver­sion of CommentPress

“Here you can select the List, cus­tomize it’s set­tings, appear­ance, and dimen­sions. Click Fin­ish & Grab Code after you’re done to get the script that you can embed on your blog or web­site. It looks cool on blog side­bars.… On the Twit­ter Lists to RSS web­page, enter the URL of your Twit­ter List, and it will gen­er­ate an RSS feed for you.”

“This video was taken from a simul­cast of a pub­lic forum designed to open dis­cus­sion in the Philadel­phia area to edu­ca­tors, par­ents, researchers, stu­dents, and com­mu­nity mem­bers about the poten­tial of learn­ing through engage­ment with dig­i­tal media.… The forum brought together experts in dig­i­tal media and learn­ing to share their research and expe­ri­ences using dig­i­tal media in and out­side of the classroom. ”

“The Pow­er­Point Twit­ter Tools pro­to­types are now avail­able. Cre­ated using SAP Busi­nes­sOb­jects Xcel­sius (but requir­ing only Pow­er­Point for Win­dows and Adobe Flash to run), the twit­ter tools allow pre­sen­ters to see and react to tweets in real-time, embed­ded directly within their pre­sen­ta­tions, either as a ticker or refre­sh­able com­ment page.

There are cur­rently eight tools – you can eas­ily cut and paste them into your own pow­er­point decks:

* Pow­er­Point Twit­ter feed­back slides
* Pow­er­Point Twit­ter ticker bar
* Pow­er­Point Twit­ter vot­ing — bar charts and pie chart
* Pow­er­Point Mood meter
* Pow­er­Point Crowd meter
* Pow­er­Point Zoom text
* Pow­er­Point Twit­ter update bar
* Pow­er­Point AutoTweet”

Shared Ceton Corp..

“The Ceton Multi-Channel Cable TV Card enables Media Cen­ter PCs to play or record up to six live chan­nels of HDTV at once and stream live HD chan­nels or record­ings to mul­ti­ple HDTVs through­out the home, all from a sin­gle cable con­nec­tion. With Ceton you finally have a solu­tion to trans­form your Media Cen­ter PC into a com­plete enter­tain­ment plat­form for all your media — even encrypted cable TV — with ter­abytes of storage. ”

“You wont find a bet­ter media cen­ter than the open-source XBMC, but most peo­ple dont have the space or desire to plug a noisy PC into their TV. Instead, I con­verted a cheap net­top into a stand­alone XBMC set-top box. Heres how.

In the spirit of our Win­ter Upgrades theme this week, this guide details how to turn a cheapo net­top (think net­book for the desk­top) into a killer set­top box run­ning XBMC. It han­dles vir­tu­ally any video file I throw at it with ease (includ­ing stream­ing Blu-Ray rips from my desk­top), it looks tiny next to my Xbox 360, its low energy, and its whis­per quiet.”

“Exter­nally, these new SE115s share the exact same body and ear cush­ion options as the SE110s so the com­fort fac­tor is iden­ti­cal. The black pair has gold logos instead of sil­ver, and if youre more dar­ing, they also come in red, blue and pink. They both have the same break­away cable, so you can add the orig­i­nal cellphone-mic exten­sion if you so choose. The light­weight and foam-covered, in-canal dri­vers have never been a prob­lem for me, but again, it all comes down to per­sonal pref­er­ence. In any case, at $100, I cant help but cham­pion the SE115s as the best rel­a­tively afford­able head­phones at the moment.”

“The Wal­lace boys mom, Karen, said she doesnt find it odd that a library would dab­ble in video games. “Get­ting kids into the library is a good thing.” Espe­cially for the older kids. After all, she said, “theyre in the library and not out doing other stuff.” ”
