Read CiteULike is closing down by fergus (citeulike.org)

After nearly 15 years operating CiteULike, we’ve made the difficult decision to close the site. Unfortunately, the costs associated with providing it and the fact that none of us really has any time to put into the maintenance and development of the site mean that we have to call it a day.

We know there are still a number of you out there who use the site regularly and we’re sure you’ll be disappointed but hope you’ll understand.

You will be able to download your library until 30th March 2019 but after that it is likely that CiteULike will no longer be accessible. We will be refunding any Gold subscriptions pro rata that extend beyond that date.

We wish you all success in your research and happiness in your life.

The CiteULike team.

I’m glad I’ve been owning my bookmarks and references on my own site for years, knowing that sooner or later just this day would come.

CiteULike was an interesting service and had a useful bookmarklet and some social features, but had quite a janky looking UI. For those looking for alternates, I recommend not looking at other siloed services, but making an attempt to own your own bookmark posts on your own website. I’m happy to help if you have questions or need pointers.

Ron Stallworth, an African American police officer from Colorado Springs, CO, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan branch with the help of a Jewish surrogate who eventually becomes its leader.

👓 Amy Collier on Wakefulness, Agency, Ownership, and Trust | Lauren Brumfield

Read Amy Collier on Wakefulness, Agency, Ownership, and Trust by Lauren Brumfield (labrumfield.com)

I now have the pleasure of introducing our fifth and final presenter, Amy Collier, Associate Provost for Digital Learning at Middlebury College, who will take on the pedagogical piece of the future of technology as it relates to Surveillance, Ownership, and Accessibility in the classroom. Collier leads Middlebury’s strategic vision for digital learning and oversees a group (DLINQ) that works with faculty, staff, and students to explore and question the roles digital technologies play in education. Her work surrounding Digital Detox and After Surveillance is inspiring, and we’re excited to see what she’ll bring to the table in June. Here’s an abstract for her upcoming talk,Wakefulness, Agency, Ownership, and Trust:

What does teaching and learning look like when we take seriously our students’ privacy and agency? This is a question we wrestle with in my group at Middlebury, Digital Learning and Inquiry, and I imagine this will feel like a familiar or even front-and-center concern for others at Domains. Surveillance and other troubling practices enter our teaching in seemingly benign ways, with mostly good intentions. This presentation will ask us to reconsider those practices and explore how pedagogy is transformed when we center the ideas of wakefulness, agency, ownership, and trust (ooh and freedom, and possibility, and love, and…and…and…). There will be a lot of expertise in the room and I hope to draw that expertise out with opportunities for us to move between examples of work that is currently happening and speculative futures for education.

Stay tuned for more announcements about Domains 19 (the schedule is coming next!) and go ahead and get to registering! Those early bird prices won’t last forever!
