Surviving a World without Oil

Another interesting review on WOW: “But when so many players get involved with ARGs just to talk to aliens or dead cowboys, it’s impossible not to wonder what they could bring to a real-world problem. A dramatic set-up could get them started, but the challenge itself could be enough to pull them along—and to find real-life solutions along the way. Or as Eklund puts it, ‘I hope that this is an alternate reality game which alters reality.’”

World Without Oil: An ARG Worth its Weight in Carbon Credits | Gameology

Fascinating stuff: using a game to change human behavior: “It’s not simply that WWO will encourage us to transfer our conservation/survival skills from its made-up world back into our real world. Instead, with WWO, our reality itself becomes a game, and eco-friendly behavior is not simply a moral or political obligation impressed upon us by the persuasiveness of the evidence, now, it’s also play.”

Webmaster guidelines: Hidden text and links

According to the Google Webmaster guidelines, "Hiding text or links in your content can cause your site to be perceived as untrustworthy since it presents information to search engines differently than to visitors." While this seems to imply that CSS image replacement techniques would violate these guidelines, Google claims it will judge a site based on its intention – only if you try to use hidden text for artificially increasing your search engine rankings, you will be penalized.

The New Shape of Knowledge: From Trees to Piles of Leaves

“The digital revolution is enabling knowledge to slip the bonds of the physical which had, silently, shaped it. Now we get to see its “natural” shape. What does it look like? How big are topics when they aren’t determined by the economics of paper? Who gets to organize it? What are the new principles we’re using to organize it? David Weinberger proposes that in the digital world, the most “natural,” efficient and responsive way to manage knowledge is to create huge, distributed piles of leaves, each tagged with as much metadata as possible – including treating the content as metadata – and postponing until the last minute the taxonomizing of the information. What will be the social effects as we move from trees to piles of leaves?”
