Big data is our generation’s civil rights issue, and we don’t know it | O'Reilly Radar

Big data is our generation’s civil rights issue, and we don’t know it | O'Reilly Radar | Educommunication | Scoop.it

Data doesn’t invade people’s lives. Lack of control over how it’s used does.

What’s really driving so-called big data isn’t the volume of information. It turns out big data doesn’t have to be all that big. Rather, it’s about a reconsideration of the fundamental economics of analyzing data.

For decades, there’s been a fundamental tension between three attributes of databases. You can have the data fast; you can have it big; or you can have it varied. The catch is, you can’t have all three at once.

With the new, data-is-abundant model, we collect first and ask questions later. The schema comes after the collection. Indeed, big data success stories like Splunk, Palantir, and others are prized because of their ability to make sense of content well after it’s been collected — sometimes called a schema-less query. This means we collect information long before we decide what it’s for.

And this is a dangerous thing.

Theodor Adorno e a frieza burguesa em tempos de tecnologias digitais

Theodor Adorno e a frieza burguesa em tempos de tecnologias digitais | Educommunication | Scoop.it

Neste texto, Bruno Pucci, professor titular da Universidade Metodista de Piracicaba (Unimep), a partir de estudo do pensamento de Theodor Adorno, propõe a reflexão dos seguintes questionamentos: “Se no tempo das tecnologias mecânicas do início da segunda metade do século passado a indiferença, na análise de Theodor Adorno, era como que ‘o princípio fundamental da subjetividade burguesa’, a direção para onde caminhava toda a história, hoje, com o mundo globalizado no interior de nossos lares, com as tecnologias de informação e comunicação que nos coloca, em tempo real, em contato imediato com os acontecimentos do planeta, o prognóstico do frankfurtiano continua correto? A indiferença burguesa persiste em dirigir a história dos homens da era digital?”

Personal News Curation: A Reference Guide To The Present, That's What Journalism Could Be

Personal News Curation: A Reference Guide To The Present, That's What Journalism Could Be | Educommunication | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you want to question your well-established assumptions about how we may want to satisfy our insatiable craving for news in the age of filters, algorithms and personalization, this is an article I highly recommend you to read.

 

Jonathan Stray, on NiemanLab, looks into a tough question: assuming we really need to keep ourselves updated via the news, in this age of superabundance of information, "who should see, what, when?".

 

In his effort, he does an excellent job of clarifying two very critical points, that both journalists and media tend to easily overlook when they try to look at the future of news journalism and its business models:

 

1) There is more than one audience.
The internet is not about broadcasting to a mass audience, but rather a medium to precisely intercept a group of people characterized by a common interest or by an issue that affects them.

 

2) The news isn't just what's new.

"...journalism came to believe that only new events deserved attention, and that consuming small, daily, incremental updates is the best way to stay informed about the world.

It’s not. Piecemeal updates don’t work for complex stories.

Ofcom publishes report on measuring media plurality

Ofcom has today published its report on measuring media plurality.

(...) has concluded that an effective framework for measuring media plurality is likely to be based, to a significant extent, on data and analysis. However, there are also areas where an important degree of judgement is required. The appropriate approach to exercising such judgement is ultimately a matter for Parliament.

Uma escola que respeita o tempo de ser criança | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"A alimentação é biológica e a hora da refeição é um momento tranquilo. Os brinquedos são feitos pelas mãos das crianças com produtos naturais e com a ajuda dos adultos. O algodão, a casca de uma árvore, as pedrinhas apanhadas na praia, tecidos, folhas, lã, madeira. Tudo serve para brincar e ser matéria-prima dos objetos de brincadeira. Há canções e cantigas de roda dos contos de fadas. Não há imagens estereotipadas nas paredes. Não há livros com letras e números ou manuais com guias de instruções. No Lugar dos Gnomos privilegia-se o pensar, o sentir e querer de crianças dos 2 aos 6 anos (...)".

Crossing the newspaper chasm: Is it better to be funded by readers? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

The Financial Times and New York Times are at or close to the point where subscription revenue exceeds advertising revenue. This means their paywalls are working, but it also means advertisers are fleeing — and the implications of that for journalism could be significant.
