(D#2, H#8) Flew's Virtual Cultures

Virtual Communites & Identities

A virtual community is much like moving into a neighborhood where everyone loves the things I love, complete with all the positives and negatives of such an environment.

Social Psychology

Is it me, or who I want to appear to be?  Do I behave differently in the comfort of online anonymity?  Should I?  Is the online gathering of people aimed for 'bad causes' just an unfortunate byproduct of an overall positive technological change?

The Digital Divide

How well does the virtual population represent the global community?  Are the inherent economic and cultural absences in this community of concern, or will the improved access and high rate of change to global networking take care of itself eventually?

Social Capital and Social Software

Information sharing and collaboration are the new face of power and teamwork - one way media is being rapidly replaced by interactive communications.  Should the presence of detractors and bullies be monitored/controlled/encouraged?

The New Media

As technology advances, the lines between 'offline' and 'online' blur, and a new notion must be considered in the face of a world always-connected.  Exponential growth rates in both technology and access fuel the debates of how best to guide (or release) the social position of this evolution.

(D#4, H#5) C.R.A.P.

Contrast

Make your content stand out from its background; provide crisp demarcation of elements.  Keep your readers focused on the material you want them focused on, not straining their eyes trying to find the substance.

Repetition

Have a thread or two sewing all of the pages together.  Use a consistent font or layout, or even a simple graphic repeated throughout. Using repetitive elements across pages helps to anchor the reader in place comfortably rather than mentally bouncing around at each new piece of content.

Alignment

It is certainly much easier to figure out _                   which pieces of text go together and     which do not when consistent _                        and meaningful alignment is used.  

Proximity

Group ideas and elements together that     go together.  Otherwise, it can be     quite confusing to the readers.

(D#6, H#3) Copyright, Fair Use & Creative Commons

Copyright in an Internet era

The connected society we live in faces a whole series of new difficulties when it comes to understanding the proper way to limit or free our information.  Once clear laws on copyright issues are now fuzzy, and the interests of the public domain are critical questions.

Creative Commons

This is a very interesting project to me.  It demonstrates the power of community, the willingness of others to share with an absence of greed, and an overall demonstration of just how powerful the internet is in the world of...everything.
