  • Andreessen’s Advice To Old Media: “Burn The Boats” – is longstanding recommendation that they should shut down their print editions and embrace the Web wholeheartedly. “You gotta burn the boats,” he told me, “you gotta commit.” His point is that if traditional media companies don’t burn their own boats, somebody else will. – (print publishing media newmedia )
  • Who Does What On Wikipedia? – Technology News – redOrbit – Ram and Liu identified seven specific roles that Wikipedia contributors play.<br />
    <br />
    Starters, for example, create sentences but seldom engage in other actions. Content justifiers create sentences and justify them with resources and links. Copy editors contribute primarily though modifying existing sentences. Some users – the all-round contributors – perform many different functions.<br />
    <br />
    "We then clustered the articles based on these roles and examined the collaboration patterns within each cluster to see what kind of quality resulted," Ram said. "We found that all-round contributors dominated the best-quality entries. In the entries with the lowest quality, starters and casual contributors dominated."<br />
    <br />
    To generate the best-quality entries, she says, people in many different roles must collaborate. Ram and Liu suggest that the results of this study should spark the design of software tools that can help improve quality. – (wikis collaborativewriting collaboration )
