Canada.com
In early June 2013, heavy rains flooded Alberta. Over 100,000 people were forced to evacuate, and four people were killed. A report released yesterday estimates damages will come in at about $1.7 billion. During the crisis, the Canadian Red Cross was on the ground helping victims. But on top of handling crisis relief, they dealt with an explosion of activity over social media.

Facebook will now let users edit posts on the internet and Android
Canada.com
The change will first affect the web and Android version of Facebook, with the iOS app following soon after. The feature will be rolled out gradually and to combat post baiting, will also allow users to view a history of changes. Comment editing was introduced in mid-2012 but Facebook has never let people edit actual posts. Until this feature, the only way to edit posts would be to completely delete them, removing any comments or likes.

Scientists use crowdsourcing to classify over 300,000 galaxies
The Verge
Modern telescopes have presented astronomers with a problem: there are too many images of galaxies for scientists to classify every single one. But crowdsourcing has an answer. Since 2007, some astronomers have enlisted "citizen scientists" to do the heavy lifting through a project known as Galaxy Zoo. The original project was so successful, in fact, that a follow-up — called Galaxy Zoo two — started up in 2009 and ran for 14 months.

Toronto Star

But a new survey found that some 15 per cent of Americans — about one in seven — don't use the Internet at all. Most of them prefer it that way. The study released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life Project also found that another nine per cent of U.S. adults only use the Internet when they are not at home.

Self-publishing on the Internet
Sherman Publications
In the digital age, anyone can be a published writer, with their work instantly accessible to everyone. "You don't need a big company behind you to be heard," said Dan Hutchins, a digital services librarian. "I think what is exciting to me is the medium is the message. If you were to publish something the old-fashioned way, with a print run or print on demand, it's a long process and you would spend money to get it accomplished. With self-publishing, not only does it not cost anything, but it is instantly global. Once published, people can print an infinite amount of copies and can reach anyone else instantly."

A lot of people feel, 'Oh, everything is really on my computer,' but I say the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it."
