Who Sets Email Rules?
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With dueling hypothetical examples, the chief advocate of a proposed email policy for the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and critics of the plan are debating whether it should be adopted. Consider this example from Michael Corn, chief privacy and security officer of the university: a student and faculty member are emailing one another, and both end up using their nonuniversity accounts. The potential danger—and the kind of situation the new policy is trying to avoid—is that by storing certain academic information on email systems disconnected from the university, the faculty member may be unwittingly violating the student's privacy rights under federal law.

Welcome to Your Curated Web, Courtesy of Corporate America
Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The amount of content and information on the web expands daily at a staggering rate. This explosion of information has created the need for talented digital curators who can filter the very best of the internet and help us find what's worth reading each day. In fact, digital "curation" may be one of the hottest-growing areas of the web right now. For example, in early August, Google News began offering "Editors' Picks" alongside results from the Google search algorithm. Now, corporate America is catching on. More

The Evolving Role of Advertising Agencies—from Creators to Curators
Afaqs    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Tim Williams, founder and managing director of Ignition Consulting Group, spoke on the urgent need to reinvent the business of advertising, and on the new role that advertising agencies should take up to ensure a safe future. Competing is an internal part of any business, be it selling soaps, shampoos, or potato chips, or in the field of ideas and concepts. One cannot ignore the changing dynamics of the market, as well as continuous increases in competition, which further stress the fact that companies, whether selling creative solutions or soaps, need to reinvent their business models from time to time.

It's Writers v. Professors in the Latest War of Words
Globe and Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Like many parents, the science-fiction writer Cory Doctorow judges the future according to how it might treat his young daughter. A vocal advocate for the rights of computer users, he brought himself to the brink of tears at a recent Vancouver conference as he imagined an era in which electronic devices continually spy on their owners looking for copyright infringement.

Pushing Back against Legal Threats by Putting Fair Use Forward
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A rarely discussed form of self-censorship happens routinely on college campuses. Professors and graduate students choose not to tackle academic arguments that involve music, movies, or other forms of popular culture. They worry that including relevant clips in their work means the hassle and expense of getting copyright permission for each snippet. But in many cases, scholars can use this material without breaking the law, even if they never ask the rights holders and even if they hope to profit from their resulting academic books. More

The Importance of Project Gutenberg
Public Knowledge    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Project Gutenberg is one of the internet's great resources—the first "digital library," with thousands of public domain ebooks, and created entirely by volunteers. Its founder, Michael Hart, passed away last week. He began the project in 1971 by typing in a copy of the Declaration of Independence. In doing this, Hart invented the ebook, and what became Project Gutenberg release #1 is still available online. Hart's passing is a sad occasion but a good time to reflect on the importance of his life's work. More

Dissertation Limits
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One of the most deeply entrenched myths of the academic enterprise is that the dissertation is the sine qua non of scholarly achievement and the ultimate proof of the value of a young scholar. Graduate students spend years slaving over its minutiae and struggling over fine distinctions in citations, argumentations, organization, and shades of meaning. The dissertation looms over their lives, spreading a pervasive cloud of inadequacy, anxiety, and fear, and its completion offers the shining vision of legitimacy and validation. More
