Seven different pieces of writing and research from the Berkman Center community, broadly speaking, have appeared over the last seven days. From Ethan Zuckerman's essay in the latest issue of Daedalus to Rob Faris and Jillian York's op-ed on filtering in Al Jazeera English — here's a quick review:
- International reporting in the age of participatory media (PDF): Ethan Zuckerman in Daedalus' spring issue on The Future of News
- Berkman Center alum Gene Koo co-authored a chapter on video games and prosocial learning in a new book (he'd love feedback)
- The Youth and Media Policy Working Group Initiative's newest resource: Youth, Privacy and Reputation (Literature Review)
- Berkman fellow Dave Rand co-authors a new paper on The Online Laboratory: Conducting Experiments in a Real Labor Market (Cf. Jonathan Zittrain's Minds for Sale and Aaron Shaw's HIT me baby one more time, Or: How I learned to stop worrying and love Amazon Mechanical Turk)
- Virtual Panel organized by Berkman fellow Christian Sandvig for HASTAC 2010: Future Social Science On and With Digital Media
- Berkman affiliate Elizabeth Stark in the Huffington Post on The Gender Gap In Tech: Why Mentors Matter
- How steep is that slippery slope? Rob Faris and Jillian York opine on filtering in AJE: Do web filters hinder free speech?
As always, there's lots more in the works. Stay tuned.
