The argument runs that trying to look cool may actually end up rubbing off. Keeping a copy of Baudelaire's poems may eventually tempt you to read them. I love the defense of high culture here and the acceptance of everyday culture too. A thought provoking article.

“We’re a public institution, and so the art and objects we have are, in a way, everyone’s property,”

German Parliament Says No More Software Patents

German Parliament Says No More Software Patents | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it
The German Parliament recently took a huge step that would eliminate software patents (PDF) when it issued a joint motion requiring the German government to ensure that computer programs are only covered by copyright.

 

The Parliament's motion follows a similar announcement made by New Zealand's government last month (PDF), in which it determined that computer programs were not inventions or a manner of manufacture and, thus, cannot be patented.

This is a welcome trend. Though there have been many proposals to limit the harmful effects of patent trolls in the United States, the discussion has stayed away from addressing a larger, root issue: the flood of software patents. While many in the U.S. are bogged down in discussions of demarcation between what is software and what is not, the rest of the world is taking bold action.

I can totally relate to this essay! Being validated and valued for your work should equate with being compensated for the time spent and the inherent value of the outcome. This is especially true when attempting to achieve simplicity, soemthing that we all know takes a lot of hard work and [complexity].

The Changing Face of Children’s Books – New Challenges, New Opportunities | The Digital Media Diet

The Changing Face of Children’s Books – New Challenges, New Opportunities | The Digital Media Diet | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

I think the iPad is just the right device at the right time, bringing a book-sized intuitive interface to millions of households with kids overnight. Within just months of getting an iPad, my child & I began reading nearly 50% of all our kid’s books in the form of iPad apps.

This revolution is also fueled by the unique quality of ‘apps’ themselves. These small, discrete bits of software can be downloaded from anywhere in the world, then deleted and ‘stored’ in the ‘cloud’ for re-downloading anytime, like a library at your fingertips. They even ‘update’ for free most of the time, staying compatible with the latest OS. It also doesn’t hurt that ‘apps’ are hip. And the prices are remarkable, compared to new print picture books, making them extremely accessible (although the price-point of the device itself will likely remain a barrier to true accessibility for some time).

How to Become an Art Brand - The ArtReview Power 100

Milos Crafts's insight:

You want to be an artist? Don’t be ridiculous! Everyone is an artist these days! That’s because everyone listened to Joseph Beuys, who said that everyone was an artist. So you’re probably just an artist who hasn’t realised it yet. For sure, you’re probably going to be an out-of-work artist fairly shortly, but don’t be so negative! Being an artist isn’t something that you do, it’s something that you are. Except when it’s something that you do. To guarantee that you’ll stay ahead of the artist pack, or at least head-above the sea of shit your peers will soon be swimming in, you need to become more than an artist; you need to become an art brand.

Denis Lundie's curator insight, July 8, 2013 5:23 AM

Social media, as expected, are proliferating and also being embedded in collaboration applications. They can be public or private. Different social media appeal to different segments of the population for different reasons. Individuals can, and do, join different social networks for different interests or relationships in their lives. Finally, they are quite simply applications, with different functionality, will behave differently.

 

Much has been made in media and education circles of Facebook and Twitter, ranging from the inherent dangers to teaching by means of these, and how to integrate them into education. Policies have been developed around them. This picture should dispel the hype surrounding the most obvious social networks, as unique threats or opportunities, for learning.

 

IT strategies and policies should not developed around individual applications, especially not social networks. e-Safety education especially, should focus on responsible management of privacy, irrespective the medium. Teaching & learning opportunities should be sought in social media that are built for learning, or embedded in rapidly evolving learning applications.
