Un locale dove tutto é gratis tranne il tempo: ha aperto a Londra Ziferblat, un caffé con un’idea nuova. Chi entra prende una delle tante sveglie sullo scaffale all’ingresso e prende nota dell’orario. Poi resta quanto vuole, consumando quanti caffé …
“L’intelligenza è veramente una questione di gusto: gusto nelle idee.”. Così scriveva Susan Sontag, celebre scrittrice statunitense. E forse non aveva tutti i torti. Ogni anno milioni di brevetti vengono
In the U.S., ads about weight usually come in the form of relatively thin women eating light yogurt. Awareness of obesity, especially in children, hasn't really taken off. But in France, this ad has taken off—and it wasn't even approved to run.
I primi esperimenti di tv e giornalismo in #crowdsourcing hanno anche un altro nome: MakadamTv, di Michele Neri
In 2002, cameraphones given to everybody the possibility to become photographers, videomakers, authors of contents. So, with Michele Neri and with technician support of Cristian Pozzer, I create a project for the camera phone users.
We discovered rapidly a new continent of amateur photographic contents, straight, spontaneous and that refer to a familiar though unexplored world: daily life, common feelings, habits and gestures, suprises and instincts of everyday people and actions. It is a new language that is appearing. In the following years, we developed technologies, legal and practical experiences to explore and give value to this new secret world of images, with the trust and intuition that these images (and videos) are the best and most contemporary tool to describe our world.
The Project Makadam has meanwhile succeded in these ventures:
-creating a community of thousands of new photographers -being the place for the culture, the technique, the artistic and legal issues and questions of this new community of photographers
Our society is increasingly relying on the digitized, aggregated opinions of others to make decisions. We therefore designed and analyzed a large-scale randomized experiment on a social news aggregation Web site to investigate whether knowledge of such aggregates distorts decision-making. Prior ratings created significant bias in individual rating behavior, and positive and negative social influences created asymmetric herding effects. Whereas negative social influence inspired users to correct manipulated ratings, positive social influence increased the likelihood of positive ratings by 32% and created accumulating positive herding that increased final ratings by 25% on average. This positive herding was topic-dependent and affected by whether individuals were viewing the opinions of friends or enemies. A mixture of changing opinion and greater turnout under both manipulations together with a natural tendency to up-vote on the site combined to create the herding effects. Such findings will help interpret collective judgment accurately and avoid social influence bias in collective intelligence in the future.
Even in this era of multibillion-dollar valuations for tech startups that have barely moved out of the founders' parents' basement, the $19 billion Facebook is paying for the mobile messaging service WhatsApp seems simply insane. But that's what Facebook likely will be spending to acquire the latest--well, not even actually the [...]
