JotOnce – New Simple Way To Exchange Information

JotOnce – New Simple Way To Exchange Information
http://jotonce.com/

Today you can email, message, post and follow; each method with varying degrees of visibility: a single person, a selective group of people, or the whole world. Now they add a new method: jotting. Write a simple note, protect it with a password, and share it with whoever you want, all the while knowing that your message is safe and encrypted. You’re working with a group of people on a project and don’t want to gather everyone’s email address’s. Just create a jot and tell them to go to jotOnce.com and enter in the selected password. Say you have to a share a rather lengthy message that’s too long to fit in a voicemail. Write a jot and leave them a voicemail saying to check jotOnce.com with the given password. Have a secret message to send to a friend but don’t want to leave an email trail? Afraid of the privacy with other messaging methods? Write a jot. Set a short expiration time and tell them to check jotOnce.com with the password. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Skepsi

Skepsi
http://blogs.kent.ac.uk/skepsi/

Skepsi is a peer reviewed online journal based in the School of European Culture and Languages at the University of Kent, and is entirely run by research students. Its aim is to honour the spirit of the School of European Culture and Languages, working hard to take advantage of its unique position as a crossroads in academic studies in Europe. Our hope is to develop collective thinking processes in the context of academic research, and to become a forum for European postgraduate researchers and postdoctoral scholars. Our title, Skepsi which originally means thoughtin ancient Greek symbolizes our will to explore new areas and new methods in the traditional fields of academic research in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Originality and creativity in the approach of thought and of texts are crucial for us: to enhance and to promote these aspects will be our contribution to the tremendous range of existing academic publications. Skepsi is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Content available in PDF format.

The Online Oral Academic Learning Community

The Online Oral Academic Learning Community
http://www.llrx.com/features/onlineoralacademiclearning.htm

Conducting research often results in print and electronic text. It would be great to get the inside feelings of the authors and researchers. How about using oral tradition and getting to the heart of research by hearing it from the researchers through social networking? By using the podcasting method and an online learning community based on the Microsoft (MS) SharePoint platform, researchers can share their experiences and collaborate on best practices for past, current, and ongoing research.

If they don’t mark it complete by the time you specify, both of you will be notified. You’ll both be reminded daily until it’s finally completed. It’s the simplest project management imaginable.

Photo Meta Data Project

September 29, 2010

Photo Meta Data Project
http://www.photometadata.org/

Everyone involved with digital images shares the challenge of tracking and managing their rapidly expanding collections. Images with embedded information about their ownership and content are easier to find and harder to misuse. Metadata is the key to better protecting copyrights, promoting licensing, improving workflow, and managing assets. Unfortunately, it is under-used and under-supported. In partnership with the Library of Congress, the Stock Artists Alliance created the Photo Metadata Project to promote industry wide use of standardized photo metadata in every digital file. Through live events and online resources, we are committed to helping make this happen. Photographers need to embed photo metadata in their digital files, while stock distributors and end users need to take steps to ensure that this information will be preserved downstream as those files are processed, published online, copied, reproduced, licensed and archived. The mission of the SAA Photo Metadata Project is to help promote these best practices by investigating and reporting on the issues, and then developing online resources and educational events — demonstrating that embedding metadata in digital photos benefits us all and is easy to do. This initiative is made possible by the generous support of the Library of Congress, our Project Partners, a dedicated group of project contributors, and the commitment of the Stock Artists Alliance.
