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.

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).
