Think Commons | Alberto Corsin

Hoy hemos estado con Alberto Corsín Jiménez (@acorsin), Investigador Científico en el Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales (CCHS) del CSIC en Madrid.

Alberto es doctor en antropología social por la Universidad de Oxford (2001) y Máster en antropología económica por la London School of Economics (1996), ha sido profesor titular de antropología en la Universidad de Manchester (2003-2009) y en la Universidad de Oxford (2001-2003). Es autor de los libros An anthropological trompe l’oeil for a common world (Berghahn 2013), Culture and well-being (Pluto 2008) y The anthropology of organisations (Ashgate 2007).

Con Alberto hemos estado hablando de antropología del conocimiento, formas de organización de los regímenes epistémicos llamados públicos/abiertos/comunes además de culturas de la experimentación, prototipos políticos y proyectos ciudadanos de transformación del espacio público.

más allá del vocabulario geométrico | Blog CBA | OPEN ACCESSIBILITY | Scoop.it

Parece que la gestión cultural estuviese, por definición, anclada en el océano del mainstream, los modelos centralizados y el fluir unidireccional. Pero si ampliamos un poco el foco que define nuestro entorno, descubrimos que otros patrones se asoman en la Red que poco tienen que ver con las formas tradicionales de gestión: espacios horizontales y participativos que permiten la creación de herramientas democráticas no controladas y autogestionadas.

¿Esclavitud del diseño? | Diseño Social

¿Esclavitud del diseño? | Diseño Social | OPEN ACCESSIBILITY | Scoop.it

Después de años de ver cómo los mercados iban imponiendo una esclavitud cada vez más ferrea al diseño, el valor social que puede tener esta disciplina ha vuelto a suscitar el interés de profesionales y teóricos.

El debate ha pasado de ser una cuestión de identidad a una cuestión de responsabilidad en un momento en que el diseñador se ve acorralado por una corriente hegemónica que le obliga a elegir entre sumisión, rebeldía o autonomía.

CRESC | Urban Experiments

CRESC | Urban Experiments | OPEN ACCESSIBILITY | Scoop.it

Cities are now where more than half of humanity live and urban processes affect the whole globe. The pace of change and the complexity of urban lives is breathtaking. As such cities represent a crucial site to explore social and cultural change, and offer a powerful lens through which to explore questions which are central to the research agenda of CRESC. Cities concentrate difference, diversity and inequality where differences and divisions are manifest in material, social and symbolic ways. Urban politics and urban governance provide a window onto understanding wider national and international political and policy making processes. The uneven effects of capitalist processes are graphically visible in the sites and spaces of the city, while the unsustainability of growth poses testing questions to urban policy makers and political actors.

Rights of Passage: Sidewalks and the Regulation of Public Flow

In his presentation, Nicholas Blomley will draw from his recently published book, Rights of Passage, to illustrate and explore the nature of a powerful and under-researched form of urban governance that shapes the production and regulation of public space, particularly the sidewalk. This logic, which Blomley terms 'pedestrianism', values public space not in terms of its aesthetic merits, or its success in promoting public citizenship and democracy. Rather, the function of the sidewalk is understood to be the promotion and facilitation of pedestrian flow and circulation, predicated on the appropriate arrangement of people and objects. This remarkably pervasive yet overlooked logic shapes the ways in which public space is regulated, conceived of, and argued about. Complicating the prevailing tendency to focus on the socially directive nature of public space regulation, Blomley reveals the particular ways in which pedestrianism deactivates rights-based claims to public space.

Nicholas Blomley is a legal geographer at Simon Fraser University, with a particular interest in property and its relationship to the politics of urban space. He has written on topics such as gentrification, homelessness, First Nations dispossession, public gardening, and the regulation of public space. He is the author of several works on legal geographies and the politics of urban space, including Law, Space, and the Geographies of Power (1994) and Unsettling the City: Urban Land and the Politics of Property (2004). He is also the co-editor of The Legal Geographies Reader: Law, Power, and Space (2001) and has recently completed a study on the politics of the sidewalk as a public space entitled, Rights of Passage: Sidewalks and the Regulation of Public Flow (2010).

The Role of Information Diffusion in the Evolution of Social Networks

The Role of Information Diffusion in the Evolution of Social Networks | OPEN ACCESSIBILITY | Scoop.it

Every day millions of users are connected through online social networks, generating a rich trove of data that allows us to study the mechanisms behind human interactions. Triadic closure has been treated as the major mechanism for creating social links: if Alice follows Bob and Bob follows Charlie, Alice will follow Charlie. Here we present an analysis of longitudinal micro-blogging data, revealing a more nuanced view of the strategies employed by users when expanding their social circles. While the network structure affects the spread of information among users, the network is in turn shaped by this communication activity. This suggests a link creation mechanism whereby Alice is more likely to follow Charlie after seeing many messages by Charlie. We characterize users with a set of parameters associated with different link creation strategies, estimated by a Maximum-Likelihood approach. Triadic closure does have a strong effect on link formation, but shortcuts based on traffic are another key factor in interpreting network evolution. However, individual strategies for following other users are highly heterogeneous. Link creation behaviors can be summarized by classifying users in different categories with distinct structural and behavioral characteristics. Users who are popular, active, and influential tend to create traffic-based shortcuts, making the information diffusion process more efficient in the network.
