Mixed Ink...

Mixed ink is a tool that takes the idea of collaborative writing to the next level.  I have not had an opportunity to work on a collective document using this tool yet... however the concepts are very impressive.  This is like Google documents with tools that allow you to easilly mix and match content and vote on the "best" version of a document.  Very impressive.

Danah Boyd - How do we create comfort in new spaces?

Danah Boyd talks about how we attempt to make sense out of our spaces in the new world of social networking.  This video made me think about how significant this change is and how we attempt to make the world reflect or familiar world.  We do this by surrounding ourselves with friends, people that we know, this is familiar.
