http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats4.htm THE FUTURE
We didn’t see the internet coming in the 1960s.
We didn’t see the web in the 1980s.
We didn’t see Napster in 1998
We didn’t see Facebook or YouTube in 2000.
We can’t predict the future of new media and only an idiot would try. Marcus Leaning, Lecture, 2010 May See
Contradiction between open-ness & privacy getting worse (people retreating to sandpits)
Content matures as others get involved...
Maybe even a decent battery life... You are a parent.
Someone invents a new technology that allows anyone in the whole world to ‘appear’ (as if by magic) in your home and talk to your child.
You have no control over who this is, what they say or anything else and there is no way to stop them... The year is 1875 and someone just invented the telephone Young men are out there
They want to talk to YOUR daughter
They want to talk to YOUR wife
They want to talk to YOUR servants
Are they’re going to do it UNCHAPERONED Threats to the moral order of society, new media will affect / damage the existing way of living. Carolyn Marvin
When Old Technologies Were New
1988 Childwise Monitor Report 2009/10 Childwise Monitor Report 2009/10 Children watch 2.8 hours TV day 75% of them still read for pleasure 1.8 hours per day on the internet Who has a Facebook account? Who has a Twitter account? Who has a YouTube account? Who has a blog? But look at 2006 through a different lens and you'll see another story, one that isn't about conflict or great men. It's a story about community and collaboration on a scale never seen before. It's about the cosmic compendium of knowledge Wikipedia and the million-channel people's network YouTube and the online metropolis MySpace. It's about the many wresting power from the few and helping one another for nothing and how that will not only change the world, but also change the way the world changes.

The tool that makes this possible is the World Wide Web. Not the Web that Tim Berners-Lee hacked together (15 years ago, according to Wikipedia) as a way for scientists to share research. It's not even the overhyped dotcom Web of the late 1990s. The new Web is a very different thing. It's a tool for bringing together the small contributions of millions of people and making them matter. Silicon Valley consultants call it Web 2.0, as if it were a new version of some old software. But it's really a revolution.

The Past The Future The Present Why don't university students use Twitter?
The majority were “too busy on Facebook” or thought Facebookwas better
Don’t know anyone else using it
Had an account, didn’t understand, de-installed
Too celebrity-focused
“really is an excuse for people to tell you what cereal they had for breakfast or complain about every little detail that makes their lives so mundane in the first place”
Student Survey May 2010 What do University staff think Twitter is?
Online form of SMS
Platform for quick dissemination of brief information to large group of interested parties. Fast, superficial but far reaching discussion
Sending text-message length messages to an internet site. Often used, it seems to me, to share so-called news of no relevance whatsoever.
It is a social network where your comments are restricted to only 140. I tried it but found it so irritating. I do not want to know when someone is having a cup of tea.
It's a self-glorification tool for those who are unable to accept that they are less interesting than they think they are.
Staff Survey June 2010 Of concern to educationalists - deep vs surface learning
The "10 second researcher" “the best way to predict the future is to build it”. (Douglas Adams)
Who's Using it
& how? http://www.64forsuu.com/index.php http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasdhaliwal/3615692735/in/set-72157619503976393/ http://www.isoc.org/internet/history/brief.shtml "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses." --Henry Ford Mainstream media don't exactly help here, because much – if not most – media coverage of the net is negative. It may be essential for our kids' education, they concede, but it's riddled with online predators, seeking children to "groom" for abuse. Google is supposedly "making us stupid" and shattering our concentration into the bargain. It's also allegedly leading to an epidemic of plagiarism. File sharing is destroying music, online news is killing newspapers, and Amazon is killing bookshops. The network is making a mockery of legal injunctions and the web is full of lies, distortions and half-truths. Social networking fuels the growth of vindictive "flash mobs" which ambush innocent columnists such as Jan Moir. And so on.

What are the POSSIBILITIES of social media? LinkedIn Marcus Leaning Marcus Leaning Marcus Leaning An incredible new technology enables the transmission of text on a worldwide base. It rapidly reduces production and distribution costs and for the first time allows large numbers of people to access text and pictures in their own homes.
