It's not about the tool. It's about what the tool lets you do.

Clément quotes and emphasizes what I agree is an important observation from Curt Bonk's "Collaborative Tools for e-Learning":

As education needs become lifelong, advances in collaborative learning tools will impact everyone. But it is not necessarily the tools for collaboration that will be the most important or interesting, but the types of interactions made possible by these technologies.

Biology, culture and diversity

Philippe Beaudoin: "It appears that the evolution of life was strongly dependent on diversity. I think that, since the advent of civilization, cultural diversity is playing an equally important role."

Les mots me manquent

pour décrire ma réaction au splendide essai de la Grande Rousse sur les stades d'évolution du cybernarcissisme, cette épée de Damoclès guettant chaque carnetier. Je me demande même si je ne vais pas lui offrir de le traduire vers l'anglais.

C'est la première fois que je m'exprime dans la langue de Molière sur ce carnet, mais la circonstance l'imposait. J'espère que mes lecteurs non francophones voudront bien me pardonner cet écart de langage.

(Apologies to non-francophone readers, I had to blog this in French)

The Google 100

Cory Doctorow: "Feeding the query string 'http' to Google causes it to barf up all the pages in its database in order of their PageRank value." [Scripting News]

This is fascinating. I was surprised to find that Google itself didn't hold the #1 spot.

The quest for commonality

genes, neurons, internet: organizing principles of networks. How do 30,000 genes in our DNA work together to form a large part of who we are? How do one hundred billion neurons operate in our brain? The huge number of factors involved makes such complex networks hard to crack. Now, a study uncovers a strategy for finding the organizing principles of virtually any network from neural networks to ecological food webs or the Internet.... more in [context weblog]

The linked article seems a bit thin, but this is a topic close to my heart - finding and cataloguing unifying concepts, common abstractions of wide applicability. A kind of knowledge compression, as Philippe once characterized my ideas.

I'm consistently blasted away by context weblog's aesthetic appeal. Sample just these three pages and you'll know what I mean: novemberoctober, july. Feasts for the eyes - and the brain.
