Outsourcing memory: the internet has changed how we remember

Outsourcing memory: the internet has changed how we remember | Digital Technology and Personal Relationships | Scoop.it

When Nicholas Carr’s article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” hit newsstands in the July/August 2008 edition of The Atlantic, the reaction was predictably vociferous....

 

It has been four years since that particular tempest in a teacup, but it seems uncontentious to claim that these concerns still resonate.

 

If nothing else, there is certainly no shortage of evidence in favour of Carr’s observations that the internet is changing our relationship with information in some fairly profound ways.

 

In a study published in Science in 2011, US scientists claimed the internet has become a form of “external or transactive memory”, with information being stored outside ourselves.

 

In the face of this transition, the imperative to remember information has instead been replaced with the imperative to remember where information is located.

Coding Freedom: an anthropologist understands hacker culture

Coding Freedom: an anthropologist understands hacker culture | Digital Technology and Personal Relationships | Scoop.it

Biella Coleman is a geek anthropologist, in both senses of the epithet: an anthropologist who studies geeks, and a geek who is an anthropologist. Though she's best known today for her excellent and insightful work on the mechanism and structure underpinning Anonymous and /b/, Coleman is also an expert on the organization, structure, philosophy and struggles of the free software/open source movements. I met Biella while she was doing fieldwork as an intern at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. She's also had deep experience with the Debian project and many other hacker/FLOSS subcultures.

 

Coleman's has published her dissertation, edited and streamlined, under the title of Coding Freedom: The Ethics and Aesthetics of Hacking, which comes out today from Princeton University Press

A KONY 2012 Post-Mortem? | Anthropology Now

A KONY 2012 Post-Mortem? | Anthropology Now | Digital Technology and Personal Relationships | Scoop.it

What was your reaction to KONY 2012? Do you remember it? Did you have a reaction? Did it serve as fodder for an anthropologically grounded treatise in one of your classes or a conversation in the spring of 2012 during it’s viral time? Did it launch you into instant empathy and social action as the filmmakers intended? Or, did you create a condescending Willy Wonka or Skeptical African Kid meme to mock it?
