CHE: Social Networks For The Green Campus

Internal Communications at Washington State U. Go Paperless / Steve Kolowich / February 10, 2009


Washington State University has decided to go paperless for all internal communications on its four campuses, moving all memos, fliers, posters, and its weekly newspaper to cyberspace. “Experts have been predicting a transition to a paperless society for years,” wrote Elson S. Floyd, the university’s president, in a statement this afternoon. “Meanwhile, it seems that the piles of papers that cross our desks keep growing. We plan to reverse that trend.”

The decision, made official last month, comes amid an effort to trim $10-million from the university’s budget by June, with further cuts anticipated next year. [snip]

She also said that quitting paper cold turkey would encourage the university to to integrate Web 2.0 technologies—such as blogging and social networking—into its internal communications. “I’m sure we will find a lot of creativity spurred by this,” she said.

At the same time, “it is really exciting to deliver the news in a new format,” he added. “We have to learn to use the tools of the Web and Web 2.0 effectively.

I had planned to suggest that various interlinked university social networks be created to facilitate communication, coordination, and cooperation amongst/between various individual, departmental, and administrative efforts but thought that The Idea would be considered Too Radical …

The Participatory Web: Web 2.0 and The Future of The Library

As characterized by Wikipedia, “‘Web 2.0’ describes the changing trends in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aim to enhance creativity, communications, secure information sharing, collaboration and functionality of the web[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0]

Such ‘participatory’ technologies include not only blogging (e.g. Blogger), photo-sharing (e.g. Flickr), social bookmarking (e.g. Delicious), but folksonomies (e.g., tagging), online social networks (e.g., Facebook), video-sharing (e.g., YouTube), and wikis (e.g., Wikipedia).

In this ... [presentation] we provide an overview of several significant Web 2.0 technologies and profile numerous examples of libraries worldwide that have implemented these interactive technologies in their efforts to enhance collaboration and communication with their respective communities.

While I will profile The Usual Web 2.0 Suspects in my presentation, I am also interested in promoting newer/emerging Web 2.0 technologies as well, and would appreciate Any and All Suggestions; Library implementations would be of special interest.

In addition to implementations by U.S. libraries, I am particularly interested in Web 2.0 implementations by libraries in non-U.S. regions (e.g., Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Oceania, etc.)

Meebo Now Includes Chat From Facebook

NYTimes / Bits / February 5, 2009 / 5:04 pm /Instant Messaging Site Meebo Adds Facebook Chat / By Brad Stone

For Internet users whose instant messaging proclivities span numerous systems -– AOL’s AIM, Yahoo Messenger and Microsoft Messenger, for example -–
Meebo is a hugely useful tool.

Since 2005, the Mountain View, Calif., company has let people log into multiple messaging systems at the same time from within a Web browser. It’s much easier than opening up the desktop software programs of several IM systems and logging into them all at once.

Today, Meebo is getting even more useful, adding the popular Facebook Chat to the list of instant messaging systems it supports. [snip]

The move is interesting for a number of reasons. First, it sheds a little more light on how developers will be using Facebook Connect, which the company hopes to use to magnify Facebook’s influence across the Internet. For now, Meebo users will be able to conduct instantaneous text chats with their Facebook friends off the social network, and to browse the status updates of all their Facebook friends.

But subsequent versions of the integration with Facebook could let Meebo users see some of their friend’s Facebook profile information, publish stories into their news feeds on Facebook, or update their Facebook status remotely, ... [snip]

The move also underscores just how pervasive IMing with friends and colleagues is becoming, and how it is spreading out and being threaded directly into the fabric of the Web. An Internet user’s list of friends used to sit inside an instant messaging software program – something users opened each time they turned on their computer. Now people are forging connections across the Web, and the idea of listing all your friends in a software silo almost seems quaint. [snip]
