Não há como fugir de si estando em rede. Ou você é ou não sabe ainda quem é; outros certamente saberão vendo seus rastros. Mas estes eventos não podem impedir que exista confiança no ato de "Narciso" ao mirar-se no espelho.

The role of Twitter in the future Hillary Clinton's campaign | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
The first presidential debate in 2012 took place between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama at the University of Denver. The second debate took place that same day on Twitter between their supporters.
The Oct. 3 debate generated a record-setting 10.3 million tweets of jokes, analysis, quotes and observations, according to Twitter. Before the event had even begun, its Twitter chatter dwarfed that of all the 2008 presidential debates combined.
After the election, Obama adviser David Axelrod reflected on

luiy's curator insight, January 28, 2014 5:44 PM

We need a concept of infopolitics precisely because we have become infopersons. What should we do about our Internet and phone patterns’ being fastidiously harvested and stored away in remote databanks where they await inspection by future algorithms developed at the National Security Agency, Facebook, credit reporting firms like Experian and other new institutions of information and control that will come into existence in future decades? What bits of the informational you will fall under scrutiny? The political you? The sexual you? What next-generation McCarthyisms await your informational self? And will those excesses of oversight be found in some Senate subcommittee against which we democratic citizens might hope to rise up in revolt — or will they lurk among algorithmic automatons that silently seal our fates in digital filing systems?

Infopolitics, infopersons, algorithms, NSA, informational self, data awareness.

 

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, January 31, 2014 12:31 AM

"As soon as we learn to see ourselves and our politics as informational, we can begin to see the importance of surveillance reforms of the sort proposed by Senator Ron Wyden, Democrat  of Oregon, as well as the wisdom implicit in the transgressions of “hacktivists” whose ethics call for anonymity and untraceability. Despite their decidedly different political sensibilities, what links together the likes of Senator Wyden and the international hacker network known as Anonymous is that they respect the severity of what is at stake in our information. They understand that information is a site for the call of justice today, alongside more quintessential battlefields like liberty of thought and equality of opportunity. Willingness to see ourselves as informational persons subject to informational powers could help us bring into view what will be required to protect the many individual rights and social ties now inhering in all those bits and bytes."

Anonymous Leaks the Accounts of Spain’s Governing Party

Anonymous Leaks the Accounts of Spain’s Governing Party | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

Global hacktivist group Anonymous has leaked the 1990-2011 financial accounts of the governing Partido Popular (PP) [People's Party] to the Internet.

Recently, the judge overseeing the Gürtel case, an ongoing political corruption scandal in Spain that implicates PP members, asked for access to the documents dated since 1990 on the suspicion of illegal financing. The PP refused, claiming that they were only obligated turn in documents from the last five years.

La cyberdémocratie en question... - ZigZag magazine | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
Internet ? Outil restructurant la sphère politique et entrainant de profondes répercussions sur la vie démocratique... Démonstration ! (...)
Pierre Levy's insight:

En 2002, dans son ouvrage intitulé Cyberdémocratie, Pierre Lévy soulevait déjà les possibilités du Web pour une participation citoyenne accrue à la vie politique. En effet, Internet ouvrirait «  un nouvel espace de communication, inclusif, transparent et universel, qui est amené à renouveler profondément les conditions de la vie publique dans le sens d’une liberté et d’une responsabilité accrue des citoyens. » Il avançait ainsi l’hypothèse que le cyberespace allait effectuer une restructuration de la sphère politique, entrainant de profondes répercussions sur la vie démocratique.

Before Big Answers, it will be usefull to have Big Questions: what do we want to know? It's The Big Question. Now, very often, we ask to Big Data the same questions that we ask before, to "small data". It coulb be usefull, and we have to do it. For now, we lack of questions, not data.
