These are my links for April 7th through April 18th:
- Buzz – Stuff – Post to Buzz<br />
Help people share stuff from your website in Google Buzz
- What To Look For When You Hire A Community Manager – FeverBee – The Online Community Guide – Experience aside, most community manager jobs look for the wrong skills. If community building is about bringing a group of people together and developing a community spirit amongst them – then you need to find people with skills that fit that.<br />
There is a real skill involved in this line of work Most Facebook groups, Ning sites, forums and branded communities fail because the individuals in charge of them don’t have the skill for this line of work.
- Dunbar's number – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – Dunbar's number is a theoretical cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. These are relationships in which an individual knows who each person is, and how each person relates to every other person. Proponents assert that numbers larger than this generally require more restrictive rules, laws, and enforced norms to maintain a stable, cohesive group. No precise value has been proposed for Dunbar's number, but a commonly cited approximation is 150.<br />
Dunbar's number was first proposed by British anthropologist Robin Dunbar, who theorized that "this limit is a direct function of relative neocortex size, and that this in turn limits group size … the limit imposed by neocortical processing capacity is simply on the number of individuals with whom a stable inter-personal relationship can be maintained."
- Linked Data are the roots for the Future Web – KnowledgeBoard – A lot of people, some of which are part of the W3C, want to see a “Web of Data” where data is linked across domains (physical (e.g. web servers), virtual/symbolic (e.g. knowledge bases or domains of knowledge/understanding)). This is where every “thing” on the web is structured in a kind of “object orientated” way, RDF happens to be a standardised way of achieving this. But this does not mean that a “Web of Data” will replace the document view that we see today, it means that the Linked Data are the roots and a human view is what the user sees
- Wolfram|Alpha – Making the World's Knowledge Computable. Today's Wolfram|Alpha is the first step in an ambitious, long-term project to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone. Enter your question or calculation and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and a growing collection of data to compute the answer.
