[INFOGRAPHIC] Faith and the Internet @ChrisGoswami

Interesting infographic received from Chris Goswami this morning drawn from a recent research project into the internet – and how it changes our lives. You may know that I don’t agree with the term ‘digital native’, preferring digital visitor/resident, but I’m liking this infographic from this blog – you’ll recognise some of the names of those quoted.

MEDIA: How has the internet changed our lives with @PremierRadio

So, the world’s first website went live 25 years ago, and I was asked to have a chat about how the internet has changed our lives over the past 25 years … I cast out on Facebook (as always), read a few new things – e.g. are we wasting time on the internet, and then enjoyed my chat with Hannah on Premier Radio.

#EmptyShelf 2016 #42: Viral Loop: The Power of Pass-it-On by @Penenberg (Hodder, 2009)

So, continuing my look at memes/virality/sharing for a new chapter for my PhD thesis-related publication, and I picked up a nice brightly coloured book that’s been on my shelf for quite some time – Adam L Penenberg’s Viral Loop from 2009 (hardback) 2010 (paperback). It’s quite enjoyable reading a book which essentially contains quite a lot of futuristic predictions, which, 7 years later, we can see if some are coming to fruition!

#EmptyShelf 2016 #22: Saving Bletchley Park by @Dr_Black with @stevyncolgan (Unbound, 2015)

Over the last few weeks I’ve watched the whole of 24 (208 episodes in total I believe), but today decided I was ready for reading a bit of paper! I’ve had Sue Black’s Saving Bletchley Park since Christmas in an e-book, and the hard copy turned up not long after … and I had promised myself that on this two weeks of annual leave (no work emails, no CPD, mostly sleep) I would read the Continue Reading →
