The Pointlessness of Unplugging

The Pointlessness of Unplugging | Literacy in the algorithmic medium | Scoop.it

If it takes unplugging to learn how better to live plugged in, so be it. But let’s not mistake such experiments in asceticism for a sustainable way of life. For most of us, the modern world is full of gadgets and electronics, and we’d do better to reflect on how we can live there than to pretend we can live elsewhere.

Nice article which underlines how technology is now integrated with our lives.

RossanaPiccini's curator insight, March 24, 2014 2:04 PM

It's more often than not that I come across someone who shuns modern technology for a day or two in pursuit of some sort of "purification". What are they really talking about and why? This article begins to explore some of the issues underlying our reborn fear of technology.

DIGITAL LITERACY USED TO DEFEAT SLAVERY WORLDWIDE

DIGITAL LITERACY USED TO DEFEAT SLAVERY WORLDWIDE | Literacy in the algorithmic medium | Scoop.it

Forced marriages are slavery. In several countries - including India, Pakistan and Afghanistan - some parents give their daughters away to settle family debts. This basically enslaves these young women for life, because even though divorce is legally possible, very few decide to go down that road, fearing the cultural and social stigma that comes with divorced women. For the same reason, some fall victims of debt bondage, offering their services to people they owe money. It's a vicious condition, because the terms of this "relationship" are often not specified, and sometimes entire generations find themselves trapped in this system without the chance to escape. Child labor is slavery. The exploitation of children still goes on in several countries in the world, with Eritrea, Somalia and the DR Congo leading this shameful list. Some children do escape this vicious cycle, but lack of education slows down their development, and very few end up having a normal life.

Human trafficking, forced labour and sexual slavery go hand in hand. With the promise of a legit job, young individuals embark themselves in journeys that turn up being nightmares. Many are sold pretty much in the same way African slaves were for centuries. Good part of these people - most of whom children - are kidnapped and shipped to other countries. There they find themselves trapped by criminal organizations that, should they try to escape, wouldn't think twice before eliminating them. Eastern Europe, Central Asia, India, Brazil and Thailand's go-go bars provide us with just a few examples of locations infected by these prostitution rings. Unfortunately, these places are notorious to sex tourists, who choose them to do what it would be hard in their own countries because of stricter regulations. Because of this, some governments close an eye on prostitution and sex trafficking, as these deviated tourists represent a huge financial boost to their economies.

Web Design: The Battle for the Body Field

Web Design: The Battle for the Body Field | Literacy in the algorithmic medium | Scoop.it
As we attempt to combine multi-device design requirements with complex, media-rich narratives, we’ve hit the wall. The chunky, fields-and-templates approach we’ve developed can’t save us from the mismatch between our content and HTML’s descriptive tools. The good news is we don’t have to convert all our projects to XML to learn from the XML community’s wisdom. By using custom elements and properties to represent content’s meaning, transforming it into HTML on output, and ensuring that editing tools share the same vocabulary, we can publish structured content that supports the needs of today’s editors and art directors while also making our content safe for future generations.
