amateur professional

This is a talk at TED that talks about creative acts by ordinary people who create stuff for their own use.


Source
In this deceptively casual talk, Charles Leadbeater weaves a tight argument that innovation isn't just for professionals anymore. Passionate amateurs, using new tools, are creating products and paradigms that companies can't. He describes the rising role of serious amateurs ("Pro-Ams," as he calls them) through the story of the mountain bike.

Facebook EDU

This is my response to the Facebook-EDU at

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Facebook-EDU/10953198817 registration required

I created two facebook groups to support two of my classes this semester. One for Statics a sophomore class in Engineering at

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=21628805067 registration required

Due to low participation from students it became information only. The idea was that since students are on facebook so it should be realtively easy to get them responding to the educational support on the facebook. It turned out that most of the students see facebook as a social space and they would prefer that the formal education does not intrude in it.

It could be done by either enticing them or by coercing them but on their own free choice very few who need the online resource to study like athelets who are out of town a lot or student who miss classes will use the online resource. Here is a study done at Harvard on how online resources are used in educational setting.

http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/digitalnatives/files/2008/03/instructionaltechnologysurvey.pdf

I also had another group for another course to just show how facebook work at

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=9324447860 registration required

It was information only too. I have used other programs to support learning so I am not totally novice when I write this.

Also, I suggested a port of a general pupose calculator that could do algebra and claculas problem to facebook here

http://apps.facebook.com/maximaphp/?page=2 registration required

It works but gets "Try Again" error when the systems are busy.

Also this group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8663279325 (registration required) to promote open free education resources.

I am involved into other facebook groups but these were the once who were directly related to the support of classroom instructions.

Facebook is an excellent program and it is probably the best when it comes to semi formal networking. It seems to be the easiest one to collect digital friends. Where else some one can get over eight hundred FB friends in 10 weeks time. But also manage to get blocked twice in doing that. As I said facebook encourages to connect but also wants to keep the activity in check. Here is a post I wrote to air my views.

http://randomthougts101.blogspot.com/2008/03/facebook-blocks-from-adding-members.html

I am currently using Ning to teach one of my course. Facebook groups really are not sufficient to do the job. I am sure people could say that Stanford is supporting a course on facebook using a facebook. They have a valid point but I still think that facebook needs better then discussion and better response time.

My conclusion after using facebook intensively for 10 weeks that facebook is a extremey good progarm for socializing and playing around but it is really not ready for serious professional work such as teaching and learning.

It is a new program and seductive like a cute young baby that can suck people in. But the question is will it stay seductively cute while it grows up?

If people have to do some serious work they may need some more clear cut TOS not some vague script plus the perception of people have to shift from playground to work ground. Yes, I know that we are in 21st century and the boundaries between work and play are blurring, therefore, it is not as strong argument as it was in the past.

As far as my experienced is concerned it has been mixed. For some thing like for connecting and communicating with people there is nothing better than facebook but when it comes to connecting fast facebook will not let that happen.

The "discussion" application is not enough and add on facebook applications can not do much because if they do not respond in time users get "Try again" error. That leaves one with very little choice except to send tons of good karma and trees for the patches of FB friends or try friends for sale or get hundreds of posting on fun wall. May be that is the intent of Facebook designers and they are very successful doing that because from all counts facebook is the fastest growing social networking program. They probably do not want any thing more than that because current design is getting the job done and facebook.edu is really pushing the limits of a program it was not designed to do.

The educators especially the ones in hard subjects like Science, Math and Engineering may have to think really hard before investing their time into one another application that promises to enhance the teaching and learning process but may be under powered for the job.

Iqbal Quadir: The power of the mobile phone to end poverty

Another model of Entrepreneurship to use technology to solve problem of poverty from Bangladesh.

Why does poverty still exist despite decades of development aid? In this talk, Iqbal Quadir explains why "aid does damages: because it empowers authorities instead of people," and advocates a new approach to development from below, "by the people for the people." His own experience as a child in Bangladesh and later a banker in New York brought him to realize that "connectivity is productivity" -- and that a simple cell phone has enormous power. Now his telecom company, GrameenPhone, offers service to most of rural Bangladesh, creating new opportunities by connecting villages to the world.

Humans are incredibly resourceful creatures. They can always find ways to amuse and save themselves once they decide to do just that.

Leveraging India As India Stands Up

Introduction
Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala is Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai, India and was department Chair till recently. He received his B.Tech degree from IIT, Kanpur, and his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Maine. From 1979 to 1981, he was with Washington State University as Assistant Professor. Since 1981, he has been teaching at IIT, Madras.

Dr Ashok Jhunjhunwala has significant expertise in incubating technology to make a difference for the masses in India.

Dr. Jhunjhunwala leads the Telecommunications and Computer Networks group (TeNeT) at Indian Institute of Technology

In this video Dr. Jhunjunwala talks about a model of entrepreneurship where products are designed and delivered based upon the price model that market can support. In this example it happened to be India.

Globalization is not evil. It delivers goods and services at a very competitive cost but it also forces people to become more creative and competitive because they have to watch globally where their competition will be coming from not the echo chamber of local trade shows.



Here is a table from an article "Global Money Flow" from Forbes magazine that shows the percentage of foreign earning of Largest US based multinationals. The last column in the table shows that all the major US corporation derive a significant portion of their earnings from foreign sources. Some of them more then 50 percent. This table does not include the financial firms who operate on wall street but maintain there headquarters offshore.

What we learn from this?

That Globalisation is a major economic shift. It is not reversible.It offers goods and services at a very competitive price but it also causes major disruption in the lives of people who failed to compete in this new environment. The communities that are not part of it are falling behind. They need new creative approaches and strategies of problem solving. The old model of economic growth do not work because they have not adjusted to new economic realities.

The Coming Collapse of the Middle Class

More on economic dislocation of Middle class that directly relates to Globalization.

Distinguished law scholar Elizabeth Warren teaches contract law, bankruptcy, and commercial law at Harvard Law School. She is an outspoken critic of America's credit economy, which she has linked to the continuing rise in bankruptcy among the middle-class. Series: "UC Berkeley Graduate Council Lectures




This is painful to the middle class but the competitive edge gained by the industrial production and manufacturing is no longer is an edge. It has become subservient to the Global economy.

The people who are part of this global economy are thriving and the one who are not part of it are falling behind. It is no different then what happened in the previous major shifts in the means of production. When humans who were nomads settled down on the agricultural settlements they won againts the nomads. Now a days those guys are so far down the food chain that we can them "Hobos".

When industry came around the ones who accepted industry as the means of production beat out their cousins who got stuck in back breaking agricultural work. The Civil war in US was a fight between Industrial north and agricultural south. North won it decisively. We classify that as a war against slavery that is reason for the war to get going but North won it because they had the Industrial/Financial infrastructure to win it.

We are going through the same shift again in the means of production. The rise of global media will homogenize the peoples tastes and we will see a growing population worldwide that will have same interests, likings and tastes. This will be the middle class of the future.

Global Competition and the Rise of the Second World

More on Globalization and new Global order

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Parag Khanna, Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation. Their discussion focuses on the emerging world order characterized by 3 empires - the U.S., the European Union, and China - and a rising Second World which, benefiting from globalization, has greater opportunity for self definition internally and influence externally. The conversation elucidates the shape of this new world and its implications for U.S. foreign policy.

Richard Florida: The Rise of the Creative Class

In the last post I mentioned that we are undergoing a major shift in the means of production through the Globalization. It is already creating major economic dislocations.

The old true and tried methods simply do not work and we all know that doing the same thing over and over can not produce different results. We need new strategies and new methods of training.

Richard Florida is an author of a book "The Rise of the Creative Class". It is a book that is worth reading because it looks at the things from a different perspective.

Here is a video of his talk highlighting the same issues he goes over in his book:

Author Richard Florida spells out about how the "creative class" is transforming work, leisure, community and everyday life in "San Diego's Forum on the Future," sponsored by the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation, LEAD San Diego and the UCSD Civic Collaborative.



We also have to learn how to process massive amount of information very very fast.

The World is Flat

Thomas Friedman, columnist at The New York Times talks at MIT on "World is Flat". He is one of the few columnist who understands Globalization.



Interesting thing is that Globalization is the same shift in the means of production as we had when we moved from agriculture to industry. It is a major shift. And once again we will have winners and losers. In the past it was the agriculturists. If we follow the same linear reasoning this time around it will be Industrialists.

Limitation of Search on the Web

Let us say if you want to see all the Dilbert cartoons in which "Asok the Intern" appeared. You can go to the website http://www.dilbert.com and use their search box. It sends you out to the web and you get to the page showing the information

Asok the Intern

Asok, pronounced ah-shook, was introduced to satisfy the hordes of interns who wrote to request their own character. Asok is brilliant, but as an intern he is immensely naive about the cruelties and politics of the business world. His name is a common one in India (but usually spelled Ashok).


Now if you want to see the strips in which Asok appeared you are at the dead end of the search. May be not. Search further for "Dilbert Archives" you get to this web site http://www.unitedmedia.com/comics/dilbert/archive/

but it only lets you access the strips that are within the calender year. There is no Asok in the year 2008. I think he dies comic death because I have not seen him lately.

We go to the next web site http://www.archive.org and search for old Dilbert comics. You can get the original site but no Dilbert strips because you need the exact web address for the strip you are looking for and obviously I do not have it.

We go to the third web sit http://www.geek.nl/pics/dilbert-arch/ This has all the strips as far as I can see but one has to wade through all of them to find the one I need and in the process become a Dilbert expert if one have the time to process all the strips stored here.

Joking aside it is a serious problem on how to search information on the Internet it is out there but how to get to it. Like I am looking for one particular Dilbert strip where Asok claims to heat the coffee through the heat generated in his head during his thinking process and I know it is there within that directory but it will take couple of hours of sorting through all the files in that directory to get to it.

What Google indexes is really a very small part of the Internet. Images, videos and other non textual information that is not properly tagged can not be found searching through the Index based search engines. One needs to wade through this huge tome of work by Dr. Giles to make sense of that statement.

The citation method for research and judging merit of research work based on the number of citations is an old idea. It became in operable when people misused it and start creating a tightly knit research groups who will cite each other research work to increase the the number of citations. The idea is being revived again in the form of social book marking. If used with intellectual integrity this idea can make finding useful things on the Internet easy. It is being used in del.icio.us ,stumbleupon and digg and many other similar web site that are promoting collaborative filtering( 1, 2) of web addresses.

This approach can help in finding web resources that are not indexed correctly by the search engine robots or are not indexed at all because they are data driven web sites that create dynamic web pages based upon the query of the user.

I think a combination of the two approaches: that is collaborative filtering used by the dedicated web based communities and the web sites suggestions by the index based search engine will solve the problem of finding useful resources on the web.

The idea of social book marking is gaining some currency. There is a popular Facebook group and a website from the creator/admin of the FB group where he is teaching about social bookmarking.

It will work but like any thing else that is useful first the issues of power and its cousin politics needs to be settled. Who should get how much of the profits that are generated by creating a service like this has to be resolved. Especially the successful CEO's who like little children would like to have it all. They may even believe in sharing as long as they can own all the profits. No sharing or caring here.

Any body remember Dilbert comic strip about Asok I mentioned here or know how to find it?
