Daring Fireball: Open and Shut

Daring Fireball: Open and Shut | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Tim Wu, writing for The New Yorker “News Desk”, has done us all a grand favor by penning a sort of grand unified theory on how the “open beats closed” axiom can be true in the face of Apple’s decade-long success: “Does a Company Like Apple Need a Genius Like Steve Jobs?” Wu’s conclusion: yes, Apple is falling back to earth sans Jobs, and the normalcy of open beating closed will return any moment now. Let’s consider his argument.

The fragile beauty of peer-to-peer activism: The public campaign for the rights of media consumers in South Korea

In South Korea, the oligopoly of three conservative media conglomerates, popularly dubbed Chojoongdong, has been identified as a hindrance to the country’s democratic consolidation. This issue came to the fore during the mass candlelight protests in Seoul in 2008 against the then newly elected conservative government’s resumption of American beef imports despite public concern over the credibility of US food regulation. Born out of the beef protests was a peer-to-peer (P2P) network of individual citizens who called for media reform, condemning what they saw as Chojoongdong’s biased dominance of public discourse. Based on an ethnographic study of the inception and evolution of this digitally mediated network, Eonsoju, from 2008 to 2013, this article discusses the spatial opportunities and institutional challenges of digital activism. Eonsoju initially demonstrated a considerable potential of a P2P model for activism, but it soon had to compromise its structural and operational strengths due to legal pressures.

Reponse to Michel Bauwens

Reponse to Michel Bauwens | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

From my own view, the problem is with the conceptual limitations of the dualistic categories of dialectical mind. For 2000 years, dialectical reasoning has grown in sophistication by creating synthetic (or transcendent or meta-) narratives to reconcile contraries. Postmodernism comes along and points out that meta-narratives aren't really doing the work that we supposed them to do. They don't really solve the dichotomies, they basically take one of three ways out 1) reduce them to conceptually more foundational dichotomies -- such that, for example, you have the ultimate contrasts in Buddhism "emptiness" and "form" and two truths doctrine (relative and absolute) , Schopenhauer gives us "world" and "representation" for Derrida we have "sameness" and "difference" or the ultimate contrast in Hegel "matter" and "spirit" or in Bhaskar "absence" and "identity" …. or 2) hold paradoxes simultaneously-- as "two sides of the same coin" -- this is Wilber's tetra-emergence, or Heidegger's paradoxical thinking, and also Nishida Kitaro's answer to Hegel, or 3) establish a meta-theoretical framework upon which the endless synthetic narratives can be adjudicated -- hence Integral theory is a meta-theory which contextualizes 'green' narratives as "higher" than "blue" narratives -- the problem is, a different meta-theoretical framework such as Critical Realism can, through explanatory critique, counter the Integral meta- framework, and so one is left with the frustrating position of having to formulate a meta-meta framework to contextualize the meta-theoretical frameworks. It is easy to show that this pushes the situation of "grand narratives" up a notch in terms of conceptual sophistication, but it does not solve the problem of grand narratives and as such is still subject to the post-modern critique (IMO).
