My Life in Circles: Why Metadata Is Incredibly Intimate

My Life in Circles: Why Metadata Is Incredibly Intimate | Digital Media as a radical tool | Scoop.it
Metadata, no matter what the detractors say, collected over time is an intimate repository of our lives.
Cole Turner's insight:

"A tool developed by MIT Media Lab proves how intrusive the collection and analysis of metadata is over time, especially for those who are overly reliant on email as their main method of communication. Dubbed "Immersion," the tool analyzes the metadata--From, To, Cc and Timestamp fields-- from a volunteer's Gmail account and visualizes it."

Now That The Intelligence Community Got Away With Lying, How Can You Trust Anything They Say? | Techdirt

Now That The Intelligence Community Got Away With Lying, How Can You Trust Anything They Say? | Techdirt | Digital Media as a radical tool | Scoop.it

We've already discussed how Director of National Intelligence James Clapper flat out lied to Congress (and the American public) and gets away with it completely. While the Obama administration and other surveillance defenders have been almost universal in support for Clapper, despite his lying to Congress and the American public, this seems like a really bad strategy. As has been discussed, at the Black Hat conference, NSA director General Keith Alexander was heckled by someone who accused him of lying to Congress as well, perhaps confusing Alexander for Clapper or perhaps assuming that Alexander told lies another time.

But here's the thing: given Clapper's admitted lying combined with the complete lack of any direct consequences for doing so, there's simply no reason at all to take anything that Clapper or Alexander says at face value. Alexander, especially, has been trying to go on a charm offensive to convince people that the press reports are exaggerated. He even "cursed" during his speech at Black Hat, and then pretended that it was by accident, and asked that it not be mentioned, trying to show how "honest" he was being. But all the charm in the world can't overcome the simple fact that everyone knows that there appear to be no direct consequences for lying. Even if we want to believe him, it's pretty difficult.

The Independent Crowdfunding Video Journalism Platform: Vourno

The Independent Crowdfunding Video Journalism Platform: Vourno | Digital Media as a radical tool | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, June 22, 2013 2:49 PM



From the official site: "Vourno.com provides journalists (Vournos) with the tools to raise capital for the creation and production of quality, newsworthy content and gives the public (Pubs) the ability to directly fund, share, watch and rate those stories."


Successfully funded projects are produced and premiered on the Vourno online network.


Here's how it works:


1. Video journalists (“vournos”) propose a video story they want to create (“Video is where everybody’s going,” Verdirame said).


2. Members of the public (“pubs”) browse the stories they want to fund and help publish it by donating. They can also pitch their own stories they want to see published for a vourno to pick up.


3. Vournos gather enough funds from pubs to pay for their salary, equipment, travel expenses and any extra team members they may need (editor, videographer, etc.)


4. The vourno gets a certain amount of time to complete the story and publish it on Vourno’s website for all to watch and share for a week before selling it elsewhere.


5. More popular, original and in-depth reporting will get more play on the website, and more sharing means more revenue through advertising — which eventually will be shared by vournos and pubs.
