"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

"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"

"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." "
