Mlik Sahib's curator insight, April 1, 2014 4:28 PM

"Our work is dedicated to enacting global states of performance, in which everyone is engaged into embracing this possibility in constructive ways, using arts and creativity to interweave scientific, technical and technological possibilities with our imaginaries: a linguistic virus which shifts our perception of what is possible."

An online Magna Carta: Berners-Lee calls for bill of rights for web

An online Magna Carta: Berners-Lee calls for bill of rights for web | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
Exclusive: web's inventor warns neutrality under sustained attack from governments and corporations

luiy's curator insight, March 12, 2014 9:07 AM

Berners-Lee's Magna Carta plan is to be taken up as part of an initiative called "the web we want", which calls on people to generate a digital bill of rights in each country – a statement of principles he hopes will be supported by public institutions, government officials and corporations.

 

"Unless we have an open, neutral internet we can rely on without worrying about what's happening at the back door, we can't have open government, good democracy, good healthcare, connected communities and diversity of culture. It's not naive to think we can have that, but it is naive to think we can just sit back and get it."

Berners-Lee has been an outspoken critic of the American and British spy agencies' surveillance of citizens following the revelations by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. In the light of what has emerged, he said, people were looking for an overhaul of how the security services were managed.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 10, 2014 11:35 PM

"Gamifying an office may very well help incentivize employees to complete specific tasks. But when it's viewed in the broad context of looming technological unemployment, a much darker picture emerges. The expansion of the freelance market and the simultaneous erosion of unionized labor don't help either. To borrow a phrase from the philosopher Evgeny Morozov's scathing takedown of the "sharing economy," in this light gamification "amplifies the worst excesses of the dominant economic model: it is neoliberalism on steroids."

Rather than focus solely on how to better apply game mechanics to the allocation of human resources both personally and professionally, perhaps we should also be thinking about what it means for people to "lose" in such a world—both individually and collectively. The tech entrepreneur class loves to lionize failure as a process that abets innovation. But how many people will actually get a second life?"

Artur Alves's curator insight, March 11, 2014 5:33 AM

"Predictably, game designers have recoiled at this thought for a while. In a famous 2011 essay titled "Gamification Is Bullshit," Georgia Tech professor Ian Bogost described the concept as "marketing bullshit, invented by consultants as a means to capture the wild, coveted beast that is videogames and to domesticate it for use in the grey, hopeless wasteland of big business, where bullshit already reigns anyway."

Gamification reeks of insincerity to people who are more interested in the creative merits of games than their potential for exploitation by sales teams. That's understandable. What's more disturbing to me is the way that gamification accelerates another trend by essentially dressing Taylorism up in new app-friendly clothes."

La ciencia depende cada vez más de ricos patrones (ese 1% con la renta del 99%) con sus propias prioridades, gustos y manías, que no saben nada de ciencia.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 21, 2014 9:45 AM

This is a national and international concern.Money has a way of altering reality and truth when left unchecked for the purpose of building more billions rather than seeking truth and knowledge..  We need a strong counter balance of research to verify public interests are being protected as well as whistle blowers that often want to tell the truth of their research but are intimidated or worse into silence. Too often the research funding is not by rich concerned citizens that seek honest truth, knowledge and advancement, but from corporation that may not want full disclosure if the results do not play out in their favor.

 

The public tends to wake up angry when it has been kept in the dark, misinformed or taken advantage of or mistreated. That gets ugly and unhealthy and can be very dangerous for everyone involved even for the billionaires, rulers and officials if history ever teaches us anything we should easily see that from past events.

How the FLOK Society Brings a Commons Approach to Ecuador’s Economy

How the FLOK Society Brings a Commons Approach to Ecuador’s Economy | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
This year Rafael Vicente Correa Delgado, President of the Republic of Ecuador, addressed indigenous communities on the topic of Good Living, or Sumak Kawsay in Kichwa.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 10, 2014 12:26 AM

"That was the starting point for FLOK. We created a proposal for an investigative process that would be carried out in conversation with the Ecuadorian public and the local, regional, and international scientific communities. At the end of the process, our goal is to create ten “base” documents from which policies can be drafted to enable Ecuador’s transition to a shared and free knowledge society for industry, education, scientific research, public institutions, infrastructure, etc.

I should also note that together with the government, civil society initiatives and social movements in Ecuador have a long history of contributing to a common, open knowledge society. This aspiration positions Ecuador within a global community of Internet activists, researchers, hackers, and commoners of all kinds who have long been waiting to join a political, social, and institutional commitment to designing a new economy and society based on the principles of a free knowledge commons.

Bethany Horne: Can you tell us more about the concept of good living and how it relates to the FLOK Society?

Daniel Vazquez: The concept of good living means harmony, equality, fairness, and solidarity. It’s antithetical to the accumulation of wealth or infinite economic growth that isn't shared in common. The Plan of Good Living defines "good living" as a way of life that allows for happiness and cultural and environmental diversity. Good living is also an indigenous concept, known in Ecuador and other Andean countries as Sumak Kawsay, a Kichwa phrase. For us, Sumak Kawsay is a product of Sumak Yachay, which means good knowledge. Shared economic prosperity comes from the sharing of knowledge, effort, and technology. The Plan of Good Living establishes a clear framework for the creation of a peer-to-peer, knowledge-based economy in Ecuador."
