  • The View Up Here talks Canada's Digital Future with OpenMedia.ca

    in Politics

    October 19, 2015. General election day in Canada. Perhaps the last chance to prevent the irreversible changes to the country that Harper and his machine want to execute. The number of issues caused by CPC malfeasance to this point is never ending. They have had a decade to pervert this once respected nation into insignificance. Internationally and domestically.


    Since 2008, OpenMedia.ca has been a leading voice in keeping Canadians aware, informed and able to counteract the measures taken against digital rights. The Declaration of Internet Freedom has five fundamental principles. Expression. Access. Openness. Innovation. Privacy.


    Shaped by more than 250,000 people and launched last week, "Canada's Digital Future" is a crowd-sourced election platform packed with ideas from everyday citizens. This initiative of digital rights is urging people to consider Canada's digital future when casting their vote this election. While OpenMedia won’t be endorsing any political party, it does plan to meet the main parties and report back as to which are most committed to implementing its platform. Thousands of people have already pledged to vote for the future of the Internet in the upcoming election.


    “Whether it’s telecom price-gouging, reckless spying legislation, or abusive copyright notices, failed digital policies are hurting Canadians,” said OpenMedia’s communications manager David Christopher. “Young people in particular are speaking up for a better way forward, because Canada can’t afford to keep falling behind our international counterparts. That’s why this election will be the most important Canadian Internet users have ever faced.” David joins us to tell us about how your digital rights are under attack. And what OpenMedia.ca is doing on our behalf.


    Join us. Know your enemies.

    Book 'em Danno: Digital Publishing and eBook Readers

    in Education

    An ‘e’ in front of any word changes our expectation of that item. eBooks exemplify that point… what makes an eBook a book and what makes it ‘e’lectronic? In pK-12 most learners have expectations of how they interact with these digital assets based on their home life and their familiarity with the Internet, browsers, and dynamically generated content. Here two cultures collide… the organized structure of school and the dynamic nature and expectations of digital assets. In this show we will discuss the tug-of-war between the the market requirements and the user expectations, the changing nature of those expectations, and the evolving technical and business challenges. The discussion should elucidate some of the key issues so you know what you’re getting into when you say “eBook ’em Danno!”


    Guests at the table:



    Tzviya Siegman, Digital Book Standards & Capabilities Lead at
    Wiley
    Michael Ross, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Education at Encyclopaedia Britannica

    Finding love in the digital age

    in Relationships

     


     


    Finding "the one" is a centuries-old quest; but neither Adam nor Eve had to log in to an app to make a love connection, and Tarzan found Jane without ever having to swipe left. And though Romeo and Juliet certainly had their share of obstacles, losing a WiFi connection was never one of them.


    If you’re looking for love, you have probably heard that many people are using Facebook, Skype, IM, Chat, Second Life, Tinder and other on-line dating apps/sites to connect with a current or hopefully new love!  So, this begs to ask, is love in the digital age as fun, flirty and exciting as traditional friendships and relationships? Can finding love on-line lead to a long lasting and committed relationship or is it just a recipe for disaster.


    Tune in to our inaugural episode, Friday, June 12, 2015 @ 9pm where we will explore these questions and talk to people who have managed to find love online.
