Smartphones use outside work hours cause exhaustion: the case against mobile learning?

Joitske Hulsebosch

We talked about the storm on Thursday which caused the complete halt of the train system in the Netherlands. Last Friday I had a dinner with 3 colleagues, our yearly dinner. I was part of a group which exchanged via a Whatsapp group whether to cancel our dinner.

The cause, and solution, to all our problems

Viv Mcwaters

It’s easier to blame ‘communications’, especially if someone else is responsible, than acknowledge an underlying cause. The cause, and solution, to all our problems is a post from: vivmcwaters.com.au. It’s inevitable.

Two inspiring stories by digital natives with a cause

Joitske Hulsebosch

I attended the HIVOS 'thinkaton' about digital natives with a cause and activism2.0. Everybody in the room already believed in the power of a click! But we need the stories. There were two very inspiring stories. The first by Juliana Rotich, the Program Director of Ushahidi (Kenya).

Cause 141

Antisocial societies cause antisocial behaviour

Neighbourhoods

There's been a surprising amount of recent commentary on the disturbances that took place in England a year ago. The fact that the social system is taking so long to heal illustrates clearly how sick it is. Meanwhile the government bumbles on, not just generating inequality as fast as it can but also celebrating it.

Cause 35

Confusing symptoms with cause

John Tropea - Delicious Community

The trust question is a classic confusion of symptoms with cause, just as creativity is a symptom of innovation not its cause, so trust is the symptom of interaction over time.

Will Yahoo's Changing Search Strategy Cause it to Pick Up Niche Services?

Portals and KM

With the alliance with Microsoft?s s Bing, Yahoo's focus is no longer on the technology that powers search and trying to beat the competition with it - the "megawatt war," as Sam Diez reports at ZDNet. Instead, it wants to ride the back of Microsoft technology and channel it so users will want to come back to Yahoo every time they have a query. They want value added user experiences. To accomplish this they need to offer value added niche content.

Does austerity cause increase in knowing neighbours' names?

Neighbourhoods

Between 2008 and 2010 the proportion of American adults who say they ‘know all or most of their neighbours by name’ increased by some 11 per cent, to 51%. In 2008, 31 per cent said they did not know any of their neighbours by name: two years later, this had dropped to just 18 per cent.

Cause for optimism: women on the move

Making Sense With Facilitated Systems

Sometimes the news one sees about the environment and about energy can be a bit depressing, but Rodriguez's essay seemed like cause for optimism. I'm sometimes leary of people claiming that either women or men are better than the other in terms of what they contribute. Perhaps that's because I've heard too many uncredible claims about what men could do that women couldn't (fortunately, I hear those far less today than when I was younger).

I haven’t found one yet (so any pointers gratefully received), but apparently there is one coming to a new apartment building in Battersea. The twist is that it will be 35-metres above the ground, completely transparent, and will link two buildings.

Messy

Viv Mcwaters

We assume that messy can be ordered, that wild can be tamed, that we can predict cause and effect. Forms, flow charts, matrices, systems diagrams, models – all are designed to help us make sense of this complex, messy world we live in. Sometimes we can. If machines are involved, usually. When humans are involved, everything changes. Messy is normal. Get used to it.
