    Twitter comes of age 

    Twitter comes of age with fast reports from the ground in Mumbai | World news | The Guardian

    Bloggers provided a “public service” function, creating sites that

    Rationale for Notice Portal 

    What’s the rationale for developing an electronic noticeboard in addition to the physical board on the corridor?

    In a developing communication/media ecology we have to blend the analogue and digital. We have to do so because they are already blended by the people who are using our information and joining our discussions. The mobile phone is a constant. Facebook is always on – yes, in class as well. If we continue to limit ourselves to having one place for information where everybody has to go, we limit the possible conversation. What we have now are many places where people hang out – often, but not always, simultaneously – that’s where we need to provide the information.
