    Amazon vende más ‘e-books’ que libros en papel en Navidad

    La librería atribuye el fenómeno al éxito de Kindle

    Son únicamente los datos de un día, el 25 de diciembre, pero Amazon ha anunciado
    que en esta fecha ha vendido, por primera vez, más libros electrónicos que editados
    en papel. La librería virtual atribuye este fenómeno al éxito de su libro electrónico
    Kindle que se ha visto beneficiado por los retrasos en la comercialización de otras
    ofertas rivales, como la de la librería Barners. El catálogo de títulos para Kindle
    supera los 390.000, la gran mayoría en inglés.
    Amazon asegura que este mes ha vendido más Kindles que, por ejemplo, iPods.
    Con un grosor de poco menos de un centímetro y un peso de 289 gramos, Kindle es
    una biblioteca en sí misma. Permite almacenar en sus dos gigas de memoria interna
    hasta 1.500 libros.
    La compañía no ha suministrado datos más precisos sobre el número de libros
    vendidos en Navidad.

    Suiza demanda a Google Street View

    Las autoridades sostienen que algunas de sus imágenes vulneran la privacidad

    La comisión suiza que vigila la protección de datos en la Red ha denunciado
    ante la Justicia al servicio de Google Street View alegando que ha hecho caso
    omiso a sus recomendaciones para tratar determinadas imágenes callejeras.
    Street View permite navegar virtualmente por determinadas ciudades gracias a
    una recogida de imágenes reales que hacen sus vehículos. Desde la introducción
    de este servicio en Suiza este año, la citada comisión ha criticado que pudieran
    verse matrículas de coches y rostros de peatones, particularmente en las imágenes
    que se ofrecen cerca de centros educativos, sanitarios o penitenciarios. También
    preocupó la altura de las cámaras que tomaban imágenes por encima de muros.
    La comisión solicitó a Google que retirara el servicio hasta no haber cumplido con
    sus recomendaciones. Google se negó, alegando la legalidad del servicio y la
    eficacia de su política de pixelización para evitar el reconocimiento de matrículas
    y coches.

    The 10 best educational websites

    Online information has come on leaps and bounds since the days of the CD-ROM encyclopedia. We bring you the top education sites

    If you bought a computer a few years ago, it would invariably come with a free CD-Rom encyclopedia. At the time it seemed like a life-changer, but after an hour or two spent looking at ancient wildlife clips and a timeline about the Romans, the excitement wore off. Today’s internet equivalents are bigger, faster and more interactive, whether you’re helping youngsters with their homework or cramming for the pub quiz.

    The American magazine covers a huge range of subjects, from space and the environment to animals and even world music (where you can listen to thousands of artists). What’s shared is a passion for the living world. Inspiring stuff, brilliantly presented.

    Videos, podcasts, a vast photo archive, 3-D image files and pages for missions where you can view raw data as they stream in, make this a must for anyone with even a fleeting interest in space.

    Expertly written articles explaining everything under the sun, from how a Taser is put together to the history of the jeep. Hundreds of videos add to the experience.

    It might be a giant plug for the Discovery Channel’s roster of shows, but the dozens of microsites here are uniformly excellent. Links to the websites of sister channels (Military, Science and more) drive an even bigger wedge between you and any work you might have been thinking of doing.

    The Smithsonian Institution in Washington is the world’s largest museum complex, and its magazine is a rival to National Geographic. The associated website is a rich source of eye-opening good reads.

    Possibly the best BBC microsite — a simple collection of video clips. Choose from 370 animals to see related footage, and scare your friends when they walk in by playing the “what they sound like” widget. (Works better with tigers than rabbits.)

    TED is an organisation that invites inspirational people to an annual conference to share their thoughts on the world, technology, design and more. It videos the results and archives them here. Will keep you hooked for days.

    Videos and photos that live up to the simple tagline “images of life on earth”. Endangered species are a speciality; the promise is they will live on here if nowhere else.

    Once registered for free, you can browse through hundreds of articles culled from the popular magazine. They are sorted into categories and, despite the lofty academic credentials of the authors, are easily readable.

    PBS is a publicly funded American TV channel with an emphasis on science, the arts and history. Watch entire shows or browse their excellent, richly detailed sites.

    Note: Effective with June 2009 data reporting, Nielsen has made several enhancements to the VideoCensus service, including a panel that is 8 times larger, more granular reporting and improved accuracy and representativeness. These enhancements provide the highest quality data to our clients and the marketplace. For some sites, trending of previously-reported data with current results may show percentage differences attributable to these product enhancements and should only be compared directionally.

    VideoCensus Methodology and Metrics:
    Nielsen Online’s VideoCensus combines patented panel and census research methodologies to provide an accurate count of viewing activity and engagement along with in-depth demographic reporting. Online video viewing is tracked according to video player, which can be used on site or embedded elsewhere on the Web. For example, if a “Saturday Night Live” clip from is embedded on a personal blog, that video would be attributed to NBC because of the NBC video player.

    A unique viewer is anyone who viewed a full episode, part of an episode or a program clip during the month. A stream is a program segment. VideoCensus measurement does not include video advertising.

    From Vitrimedia

    Daqui a dez anos não há canais de televisão

    Daqui a dez anos os canais generalistas de tv não vão existir. Há três factores que contribuem para isto: a evolução técnica vai melhorar de modo dramático a experiência de consumo de vídeo online, disponibilizando mais conteúdos de alta definição prontos a consumir quando se desejar. Este facto vai provocar a derradeira crise do modelo de negócio, visto que os custos estruturais dos canais de tv deixarão de ser comportáveis com menos espectadores e com menos receitas publicitárias. Tudo isto ao mesmo tempo que ocorre a mudança de paradigma do consumo vídeo, que até agora era feito de modo passivo e vai passar a ser activo – o espectador escolhe o programa que quer ver à hora que lhe apetece, o intervalo com anúncios desaparece e o negócio da plataforma de distribuição deixa de fazer sentido.
    Neste novo modelo algumas coisas se irão manter tal como estão, ou quase. Vão continuar a existir canais temáticos, porque há muito dinheiro para os programadores ganharem nos canais de desporto, sexo, música, informação, etc. Os anunciantes vão continuar a fazer parte do negócio de fornecer conteúdos a quem os quer. E claro que não vão deixar de existir programas, antes pelo contrário, a qualidade de produção será um bem cada vez mais estimado.
    A questão é que os produtores de conteúdos se irão disseminar, os fornecedores de conteúdos migram para a net e os consumidores passam a ser os decisores. Tudo boas notícias. Mas alguém em Portugal se está a preparar para isto?

    Citizen Journalism?
    Um, How About Crowdsourcing Journalism With Actual Journalists?
    Dumenco’s Media People: A Q&A With Mother Jones Co-editor Clara Jeffery

    Simon Dumenco
    Mother Jones, the nonprofit magazine of investigative reporting, has been around since 1976, but lately it’s been getting plenty of fresh attention. Partly because it’s a proven model for nonprofit journalism (the magazine gets support from subscribers, donors, advertisers and foundations) in a moment when old monopoly-driven for-profit business models for journalism, particularly at newspapers, are crumbling. But also because editorially, the magazine has been on a hot streak.
