How Teens Do Research in the Digital World | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project | New media environment | Scoop.it
A survey of Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers finds that teens’ research habits are changing in the digital age...

Some 77% of advanced placement (AP) and National Writing Project (NWP) teachers surveyed say that the internet and digital search tools have had a “mostly positive” impact on their students’ research work. But 87% say these technologies are creating an “easily distracted generation with short attention spans” and 64% say today’s digital technologies “do more to distract students than to help them academically.”

From Mass Media to the Digital Revolution: An Interview with Fred (...) - Books & ideas

From Mass Media to the Digital Revolution: An Interview with Fred (...) - Books & ideas | New media environment | Scoop.it
In this new interview, Fred Turner addresses the historical links between American democratic propaganda in the Cold War era, the counterculture (...)
Andrey Miroshnichenko's insight:

... If you wanted to make a democratic society you had to make a democratic personality type.
Many thought that there was something about the one-to-many transmission model that caused people to stop to be able to reason, to stop being individuals and to become massified.
...Later, Mead and Bateson particularly brought those views into early meetings with the information technologists who created cybernetics. These cybernetics scholars, Norbert Wiener especially, had a vision of communication, which is not top-down, but is instead a matter of individuals seeking feedbacks from each other.
... if one-to-many media produced authoritarians, as the German example seemed to show, then Americans would need many-to-many media, multimedia, to become a unified nation of individualists.
Очень хорошо о концепции мягкой силы, как она недостаточно внимания уделяет чувствам людей (а именно ресентимент сейчас управляет мировой реакцией и, по факту, побеждает консьюмеризм): "The concept of soft power is important, but scholars have not paid enough attention to the management of attention and the senses. The notion of soft power says a lot about consumption, the export of goods, opportunities and culture, but I think it misses the management of the senses. And this management is even more common now in the digital world. The concept of soft power does not quite get at that."
Хорошо про устойчивость сетевых сообществ: только те устойчивы, которые вырабатывают внутренние институты:
Between 1960 and 1973, Americans saw the largest wave of commune-building in their history. More than a million Americans went to live in communes... They did not have bureaucracy, hierarchy, or clear rules about how to divide up resources. Instead of rules, they had norms, charisma, cool. But only those that had strong authoritarian leadership or religious structures survived more than just a little while. In any kind of community, you need explicit principles to negotiate resources and organize recognition of talents and values.
...no, we need to build a conversation system, not a catalog.

Communicative capitalism and class conflict

Communicative capitalism refers to the form of late capitalism in which  values heralded as central to democracy materialize in networked communications technologies. Ideals of access, inclusion, discussion and participation are realized through expansions, intensifications and interconnections of global telecommunications. In communicative capitalism, capitalist productivity derives from its expropriation and exploitation of communicative processes. This does not mean that information technologies have replaced manufacturing; in fact, they drive a wide variety of mining, chemical, and biotechnological industries. Nor does it mean that networked computing has enhanced productivity outside the production of networked computing itself. Rather, it means that capitalism has subsumed communication such that communication does not provide a critical outside. Communication serves capital, whether in affective forms of care for producers and consumers, the mobilization of sharing and expression as instruments for “human relations” in the workplace, or contributions to ubiquitous media circuits.
Other names for communicative capitalism are knowledge economy, information society, and cognitive capitalism.

Andrey Miroshnichenko's insight:

As humankind plays with all its media, so does Andrew McLuhan; and not only with discARTed books. Half of his day time, Andrew works with his father to maintain and develop the legacy of Marshall McLuhan. The rest of time he runs his small furniture business, upholstering old furniture. Things are going pretty well; in the age of Ikea, people value old memorable things more and more. But none of his clients knows the secret of his that I discovered by accident while discussing the fate of printed text. On the underside of the upholstery, he sometimes writes some of his poetry.

They see me, therefore I am. Selfies and the media ecosystem of lazy authorship

Andrey Miroshnichenko's insight:

Lazy authorship is about mouse activity, plus weak keyboard activity limited to interjections. Lazy authorship is always reactive – it can only react to hard content that already exists. Whereas hard authors create some original hard content (including videos and graphics) in an effort to express some original ideas. Hard authorship can be both proactive (raising an issue) and reactive (comments).

Censorship is always bad, right? Not to many people around our connected globe, and there is sometimes validity to their views. Unfortunately the tension between those views places a profound and perhaps dangerous dilemma at the heart of the internet.

Andrey Miroshnichenko's insight:

The problem is that the intermediary – the media – is still required to accommodate the despicable biological body to the digital environment. In its essence, the evolution of media must lead to the ultimate elimination of media. A human and an environment have to merge entirely and without any intermediary. Back to nature, this time digital nature, being digitally naked.
