It's a shame about the registration process - you would like to think you can trust people not to spam, but...   ::)

Living and learning safely with the net / Web 2.0 News stories
« on: November 11, 2008, 07:17:48 PM »
I thought I'd create a thread for people to post with links or snippets from stories instead of creating loads of them.
The BBC has a report on their site on how the economic downturn will cause problems for social networking sites and other web 2.0 applications.

The economic downturn will not sound the death knell for Web 2.0 firms say analysts and experts. But, they warn, tough times are ahead and to weather the downturn Web 2.0 must grow up focus on real problems.

I wrote the following as part of the "How to create your course blog"

Throughout the L2NS course you are expected to reflect on your experiences of studying it - and a blog seems like an appropriate tool given our focus on Web 2.0 technologies. There are several free sites that allow you to create your own blog. These include:

*Windows Live Spaces

Alternatively, it is possible to create a wiki blog, aka a bliki. Our description of the difference between Blogs and Blikis goes as follows:

*Blogs are written by one main person (no one else can edit that person's entries), but other folk can add comments
always in chronological order (you cannot choose the structure)
*Blikis are written by as many people as want to contribute (anyone who is logged in can edit anyone else's entries)
not necessarily in chronological order (though, of course, this is what really makes them into blikis - if they weren't in chronological order they'd be wikis)
(This definition is ours for this site; of course there are many examples of collaboratively written blogs elsewhere.)

To create a bliki on the Schome Wiki, you can use you userpage. You will already have been allocated this if you are a registered member of the schome forum.

#Log into the wiki using your forum username and password.
#Look to the top right hand side of the screen, you will notice it has a link that's your username. For example, if Joe Blogs (no pun intended) signed into the wiki, he would notice a link titled "Joe Blogs."
#Clicking this link will take you to your userpage, titled User:<Namehere>
#Most pages when first used have a default template on them, welcoming users to the site and explaining how to use their page. However if you're a relatively new user this might not be on the page, so follow the instructions below.
#Click edit at the top of your user page
##If the template is on your page, you will notice text in the edit box saying <nowiki>{{Template:New userpage}}</nowiki>. Remove this text.
#You are now free to add whatever you want on your userpage. If you want to use your userpage for somthing else, eg an about me page, then you can create a new page for your bliki by typing in the search bar "User:<insertusername>/Bliki", and clickin "Create this page".

Obviously the *s are bullet points and the #s are numbered lists :)

Final Final call - I'm putting it together now. Please could you PM me reminding me if you've sent me an article (or are doing so) so I don't forget anyone. So far I have excellent pieces from Amba, Fox and Rowan - thanks guys! I'd really like an article from the Space team... anyone?

Teach-ICT gives an explanation of Web 2.0 on their site, and it mentions SL.

Hi all,

if any of you are writing an article for MySchome can you please get them to me by Saturday? I'd really like to get this edition out soon - and any more articles are welcome. If you've been to London for Y Factor or Glasgow for the Space Competition I'd really like to get some more articles on them no matter how long so we can get a really good account of the two trips :)

I don't know - it's quite a lonely song, quite fitting to SP at the moment seen as few people are in it...
