Thanks!
 
Fantastic piece by my colleague +Zeynep Tufekci. In it she states "texting, Facebook-status updates, and Twitter conversations are not displacing face-to-face socializing -- on average, they are making them stronger" - exactly what my research has found.

Social network overload -- but here's my post on Twitter's new country-by-country censorship capability.

Makalede " bu sansürün Arapça, Farsça İbranice ve Urduca konuşulan ülkelerde geçerli olacağını söylediğinde yayınladı" demiyor. Bu aciklama Twitter'in bu dillerde uygulamasinin olacaginin aciklandiginin ertesi gunu yapildi diyor. Very different meaning...

China's Weibos Censor Searches About Donations to Help Fund Ai Weiwei's Tax Bill

These screenshots, taken on November 7, 2011, show that searches on Sina's Weibo microblogging service for "Ai Weiwei," (艾未未) "Ai borrow funds," (艾 借款), "Ai donate funds," (艾 捐款) and "fakesheji@gmail.com"(the email address people can use to make donations) return no results, just a notice saying "In accordance with relevant law, regulations, and policies, search results for "ai XX" have not been displayed." (根据相关法律法规和政策,“艾 捐款”搜索结果未予显示)

The Shanghaiist blog reports:

On Tuesday, dissident-artist Ai Weiwei (艾未未) who was freed not too long ago from an 81-day detention, was slapped with a RMB15 million fine for tax evasion, a princely sum he has been given 15 days to cough up. The very next day, his mother Ai Ying (高瑛) and brother Ai Dan (艾丹) announced that they were mortgaging the former residence of his father, the poet Ai Qing (艾青). Following calls on Twitter by Shanghai human rights lawyer Li Tiantian (李天天) and feminist scholar Ai Xiaoming (艾晓明, no relation) to send money, his supporters also swung into action, setting up Alipay and Paypal accounts to collect donations.

Within just twelve hours, 5,232 donors had wired Ai Weiwei a grand total of RMB1.1 million. The bulk of these donations came from 4,596 Alipay users who sent him RMB862,331, and the rest of the money came via Paypal, bank transfer and postal order, says @duyanpili, a trusted volunteer who is helping to manage the donations. If donations continue to come in at this rate, Ai should be able to raise his RMB15 million within just a week.

+Zeynep Tufekci writes a magnificent post killing off the idea of "slacktivism" and arguing that what we see in #kony2012 is ""unraveling the professionalism of human rights & cause advocacy." Highly recommended.

My latest bit about "Digital Dualism" - - and how the online and offline integrate and change the world (rather than stand in separate planets). Inspired by +david carr talking about +Clay Shirky's bread recipes... But it's stuff I've been thinking about for a while:-) http://technosociology.org/?p=747

Hey, folks! Do you have cold weather gear for toddlers/babies/kids you'd like to donate to the survivors of the Van earthquake in Turkey's very cold Eastern region? I'm taking donations to Turkey (leaving Thursday afternoon) and can check in an extra suitcase for free--which I plan to stuff with whatever I collect!

I learned from aid workers in the region that keeping kids/toddlers was an extra challenge as many donations are for adults clothes. I'm looking for cold weather gear --snowsuits and such--not sweaters which they have. Email me at socnetres at gmail.com or contact me here or through Twitter @techsoc if you can get cold weather clothes for kids to North Carolina by Thursday--or hand them to me in person this Tuesday (10/25) in Boston or Cambridge (giving a talk at Shorenstein Center at noon at Harvard). Please share as appropriate.

I'm in Tunis, Tunisia, attending the 3rd Arab Bloggers Conference... It's been pretty amazing so far. Here's a write-up of the first day: http://english.aljazeera.net/news/africa/2011/10/201110322155284271.html
