Online Newspapers as Wikis

Hi guys,

Long time lurker but first time poster. I'm usually a bit too shy to
post but I'd really love to hear people's opinions on a project I'm
working on at the moment.

The main concept of the project is to foster involvement of the
general public in the daily news cycle, and ultimately to improve the
print edition of newspapers through a combination of reader
participation and traditional journalism.

Diversity is Awesome

Folks I am really excited about the discussions that are taking place here.
It seems clear that as we add perspective and diversity the depth and
quality of the conversation increase significantly!

I'd like to again ask folks to invite others with unique perspectives to
join the conversations.

Mobile (Cellphone) Activated Streetlamps

This piece from BBC News [1] demonstrates how the residents of Doerentrup
can activate the street lighting via mobile phone. This requires them to
call a specific number and then use an access code to switch a specific
lighting array for the street they want lit-up. Given that this is targeted
at older people who may well have memory issues, it seems peculiar to force
them to remember a (series of) 6-digit access code(s).

Golden oldies: pre-web-era book recommendations

We have a lot of great communication and design-related books
published in last 15 years, but there are others from 30+ years ago
whose content still rings true. Sometimes they may speak even more
loudly than when they were first published and remind us that many
concepts we're exploring today aren't always so new after all.

Some like those from Marshall McLuhan, Edward de Bono, and
Christopher Alexander are still talked about and mentioned once and a

Remote Control

I have been testing a touch screen remote (Marantz/Phillips) as part of my
research. Of the 100+ people that have done my experiments, only about 10
of them did not find divided attention an issue. They get very absrobed in
the small touch screen and have to be prompted to look at the TV screen to
do part of the task (setting VCR clock via on-screen menu).

However, the remote is very versatile if you have a lot of devices (eg home
theatre), especially high end devices with a lot of options.
