Two, great and informational, WUaS and wiki, Network Society related talks: Manuel Castells (at Oxford) and Jimmy Wales (at Yale)
Castells, Manuel. 2012. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoMam-oFOzY Manuel Castells: Communication power in the Network Societies]. Oxford, England: Oxford University.
Wales, Jimmy. 2009. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9Vu69Ajtlk The Future of Free Culture: Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia]. October 7. New Haven, CT: Information Society Project at the Yale Law School.
added these talks to two, WUaS, wiki subject pages - 'Network Society' and 'Wiki,' respectively -
Network Society -
I may explore developing (or creating) a WUaS wiki, Subject page for each topic in the open, free, online WUaS, 'Information Technology and Society' course I'm teaching and which begins next Thursday, September 19th, 2013 - http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2013/09/information-technology-and-network.html.
I'm curious whether MIT OCW-centric WUaS could begin, with our first matriculating, undergraduate class in 2014, to engage the Pew Center for Internet and American Life, and especially Lee Rainie - http://networked.pewinternet.org/authors/ (Rainie and Wellman's "Networked" is the textbook WUaS is using for this autumn's course) - to study WUaS fact-wise, as well as how students learn, and especially in terms of enjoyment, as well as interlingually, since they have a long history of data-collection, and effective online, research methodologies.
