If Links Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws Will Have Links

The Associated Press is mad as hell and they aren't taking it anymore.

While whom they remain angry at is somewhat nebulous, the venerable pillar of news reporting is looking to get a piece of the new media revenue pie by asserting greater control over their content. The current status quo is one where various types of web entities (such as Google, Yahoo!, and The Huffington Post) arrange licensing agreements in which they pay for the right to link to AP stories, audio, and videos. It is from here that the gray areas of the web emerge as sites, bloggers, and other aggregators link to the content that is generated through these AP licensees. On these tertiary sites, people can generate revenue from either ads or services that they provide while linking to AP product. -- Read More

A New Type Of Identity Theft in 2009

Today in 2009 a new bunch of identity thieves will soon come after your web profiles. Aladdin a security firm has produced their security report.. According to their report, if you don't own and control your online persona, it's relatively easy for a anyone to aggregate the known public information about you in order to create a fake one.
Those Without Social Network Profiles Could Have Online Identities Stolen
This new type of identity theft was listed among other predictions for 2009 in the firm's annual report and was based on previous trends which included a rise in attacks distributed through social networking channels.
According to the report this new type of identity theft will be "devastating, both on the personal level by creating difficulties in employment, damaging social and professional connections, ruining reputations; as well as on a financial level, such as stealing customers, corporate data,"
The team at Aladdin was able to set up fake online identities which ended up connecting to the real network of friends and acquaintances easily.
What began as a harmless "fun" way to socialize, grew into a professional way to maintain someone's network and make new connections, the report notes. Unfortunately, this new type of identity theft, aka "identity hijacking," will become more of an issue in 2009 unless social networking sites create ideas that will incorporate better, more trustworthy ways of connecting an online persona to a real person. -- Read More

The Google Generation & the Digital Transition

An interesting study was commissioned by the British library and the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) identify how specialist researchers of the future, currently in their school years and preschool years are likely to access and interact with digital resources in 5-10 years time. Additionally, the study is to assist library and information services to anticipate and react to any new or emerging behaviors in the most effective way.
The report defines the "Google Generation" as those born after 1993.
The study was to establish whether or not as a result of digital transition, the "Google" generation are searching for and researching content in new ways; and whether it is likely to mold their future behaviors as mature researchers. Additionally, whether or not,new ways of searching content will be any different from the way researchers & scholars carry out their work.
Moreover,research libraries face a great deal of challenges today in the digital marketplace. Today, they're adjusting to facebook.
Additionally,the study found the the "Google" generation and information literacy of young people,has not improved even with more access to technology. Young people spend little time evaluating information. Young people have poor understanding of their information needs. As a result, they exhibit a strong performance for expressing themselves in natural language rather than analyzing which key words might be more effective/
Finally the study suggests that print sales will diminish drastically as blogs, RSS,media players, and podcasting devices become established. -- Read More
