  10. not allowed to cite the wiki. university prefers academic journal references

  11. i guess it depends whether you're talking about a personal set of tools or an education system set of tools. ie if you are a university student.

  12. I use Wikipedia quite a bit and often link to it in my posts (especially when I'm using abbreviations like ACTA (as I did today) which people might not know)) but it isn't top five.

    Universities have a very narrow view of citations. There are various reasons to link to a resource:
    1. to indicate who originally discovered or came up with a concept (the only true 'citation' but now seldom used, though often abused with inaccurate or pseudo-originations (like crediting Yoda with "there is no try")) especially if that source was outside academia
    2. the original experimental source of data (see previous)
    3. to indicate some prior statement expressing the idea, fact or concept being discussed
    4. to indicate where the author first learned of the concept or idea (starts in grad school as references to the prof; now widespread though academia, as references to journal authors or editors)
    5. to provide background or reference material (a perfectly acceptable cite, could include Wikipedia, frowned upon by academics, because they assume all the background will be in the lit review (see 4, above))

  13. i think mutability is the main challenge.
    i cited a website article linked from the semantic web wikipedia article
    i went to grab the link again and it was no longer in the article
    the whole tone of the article had changed.
    when I first looked it did contain issues around agency and human v corporate rights with objects and data with agency.
    the next time it was very vanilla with no reference to contention between different kinds of agency.
    i did find the link to the web site article through google
    but websites are also mutable sources so the reference has a shelf life.

  14. If this is the concern, then link to a specific article date in the history - Wikipedia articles don't 'change', they just accumulate new versions over time.

Hey Kevin- sorry you cannot make it to ISTAS13.

Hey Kevin- sorry you cannot make it to ISTAS13. You were the first person I thought of when planning for keynotes after Marvin Minsky- you really were instrumental in pushing veillance as a domain, as soon as you embraced uberveillance...  http://www.kevinwarwick.com/   http://www.kevinwarwick.com/
