Bridging the new digital divide: Open records in the age of digital reproduction | History@Work | Information, memories and tecnopolitics | Scoop.it

Public historians and professionals require unfettered access to public records. These information consumers must have an economical means to collect data in ways that ensure the conservation and preservation of irreplaceable primary materials. Advances in digital technology have streamlined research and made it more economical and sustainable (e.g., digital images require no paper, chemicals, or AC power). Digital reproduction also reduces the number of times documents are handled and manipulated over copiers. What are your thoughts and experiences in the field? Let us know in the comments.

luiy's curator insight, December 3, 2013 9:43 AM

Forget the roachbots and the swarm of MIT humanoid robots dancing in sync, as well as "disposable" quarter-sized kilobots which are "cheap enough to swarm in the thousands," and think instead of DARPA-like tiny insect cyborg drones that are "designed to go places that soldiers cannot" to work as spies or as swarm weapons. Is this a mosquito micro air vehicle (MAV)?


Alan Lovejoy wrote, "Such a device could be controlled from a great distance and is equipped with a camera, microphone. It could land on you and then use its needle to take a DNA sample with the pain of a mosquito bite. Or it could inject a micro RFID tracking device under your skin." While DNA-sucking, RFID-chip-injecting mosquito drones are currently a bunch of bunk, a Bing image search shows a multitude of MAVs that aren't simply CGI mockups.

En quoi l’histoire nous aide-t-elle à circonscrire la révolution technologique ? « InternetActu.net

En quoi l’histoire nous aide-t-elle à circonscrire la révolution technologique ? « InternetActu.net | Information, memories and tecnopolitics | Scoop.it

Recourir à l’histoire pour montrer à quel point ce que nous vivons est historique. C’est me semble-t-il, le recours le plus ancien, et le plus courant. Il consiste à faire comprendre l’importance de la révolution numérique en utilisant l’analogie de révolutions technologiques précédentes. A commencer évidemment par l’imprimerie. Ce que nous vivons est donc aussi important que l’invention de l’imprimerie (le discours sur la manière dont une technologie modifie, le rapport au savoir, sa diffusion, comment elle change la manière de communiquer, les rapports sociaux, comment elle reconfigure les rapports de pouvoir, comment elle provoque un schisme religieux, etc.). C’est un usage de l’histoire qui a pour lui d’être frappant. Sauf qu’on s’aperçoit que l’on peut multiplier les analogies. Par exemple, on peut dir! e : le numérique, c’est comme la deuxième Révolution industrielle (et d’invoquer de la même manière comment des technologies, à commencer par l’électricité, sont entrées dans nos vies, de manière parfois très intime, en modifiant le rapport au savoir, sa diffusion, comment elle a changé la manière de communiquer, les rapports sociaux, comment elle a reconfiguré les rapports de pouvoir, etc.). Mais on peut même aller au-delà, être encore plus précis, et dire : mais le numérique, c’est comme l’arrivée des chemins de fer aux Etats-Unis, ou encore de l’automobile partout dans le monde. Et même, pourrait-on dire, regardez comme ces révolutions technologiques (celle de la voiture) ont modifié non seulement nos pratiques les plus quotidiennes, mais nos paysages et nos villes, alors que le nu! mérique ne modifie pas nos villes ou alors très ! marginalement.

Networking Peripheries Technological Futures and the Myth of Digital Universalism | The MIT Press

Networking Peripheries Technological Futures and the Myth of Digital Universalism | The MIT Press | Information, memories and tecnopolitics | Scoop.it

In Networking Peripheries, Anita Chan shows how digital cultures flourish beyond Silicon Valley and other celebrated centers of technological innovation and entrepreneurship. The evolving digital cultures in the Global South vividly demonstrate that there are more ways than one to imagine what digital practice and global connection could look like. To explore these alternative developments, Chan investigates the diverse initiatives being undertaken to “network” the nation in contemporary Peru, from attempts to promote the intellectual property of indigenous artisans to the national distribution of digital education technologies to open technology activism in rural and urban zones.

Drawing on ethnographic accounts from government planners, regional free-software advocates, traditional artisans, rural educators, and others, Chan demonstrates how such developments unsettle dominant conceptions of information classes and innovations zones. Government efforts to turn rural artisans into a new creative class progress alongside technology activists’ efforts to promote indigenous rights through information tactics; plans pressing for the state wide adoption of open source–based technologies advance while the One Laptop Per Child initiative aims to network rural classrooms by distributing laptops. As these cases show, the digital cultures and network politics emerging on the periphery do more than replicate the technological future imagined as universal from the center.

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."

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, December 9, 2013 11:19 PM

"On-line, nearly everything we do influences the structure of the network (through stigmergy). This calls for responsibility with regard to our role in shaping mankind’s collective memory. As we become simultaneously readers, authors, critics, editors, curators, librarians… we must come to integrate the notion of citizenship of the knowledge society. In ethical terms, this entails that we help others orient themselves in the collective memory."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, December 4, 2013 11:33 PM

"Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are the latest effort to harness information technology for higher education. While they are still in a nascent stage of development, many in academe are enthusiastic about their potential to be an inexpensive way of delivering an education to vast audiences.

 

 

 

Yet one aspect of the MOOC movement has not been fully analyzed: who controls the knowledge. MOOCs are largely an American-led effort, and the majority of the courses available so far come from universities in the United States or other Western countries. Universities and educators in less-developed regions of the world are climbing onto the MOOC bandwagon, but it is likely that they will be using the technology, pedagogical ideas, and probably significant parts of the content developed elsewhere. In this way, the online courses threaten to exacerbate the worldwide influence of Western academe, bolstering its higher-education hegemony."

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:30 PM

"Neither knowledge nor pedagogy is neutral ... Those responsible for creating, designing, and delivering MOOC courses do not seek to impose their values or methodologies on others; influence happens organically and without conspiracies. A combination of powerful academic cultures, the location of the main creators and disseminators of MOOCs, and the orientation of most of those creating and teaching MOOCs ensures the domination of the largely English-speaking academic systems."

Alex Giordano e Marc Augè introducono alle Smart Cities, città intelligenti dove la tecnologia prenderà il posto dell'Agorà. Valorizzazione delle relazioni grazie alla rete dove la sfera pubblica e quella privata si incontrano. 


La città intelligente, secondo la teorizzazione di Augè, è quella in cui le tecnologie e i nuovi mezzi di comunicazione facilitano e fluidificano le relazioni, che tornano ad essere centrale nella vita della società.
Una Smart City attraverso questi strumenti mette insieme tutte le istanze dei cittadini, delle amministrazioni, del mercato, per realizzare soluzioni che rispondano ai desiderata, i bisogni e i valori dei cittadini. 


Lo studio delle conversazioni online è la netnografia, o etnografia digitale, catturate attraverso software di crawling e analizzate da antropoligi esperti che analizzano ciò che si dice in rete su una particolare città, quartiere, argomento e fatto d'attualità. Le interpretazioni dei risultati emersi dall'analisi delle conversazioni da vita a soluzioni in diversi campi: antropologico, culturale, economico e politico.
