Arduino / Raspberry Pi Internet Radio

Arduino / Raspberry Pi Internet Radio | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

This is a project for Arduino and Raspberry Pi to make an Internet Radio, aimed at intermediate skill level. Some familiarity with Linux usage will be beneficial (or access to someone who can help out if required).

Raspberry Pi runs mpd music player daemon to receive and decode the internet radio stream.
ALSA running on the Raspberry Pi provides the sound through either the Jack Socket or the HDMI output.

Arduino runs a nanpy interface code to interface with Python, providing Text output of the Radio Station playing and Button inputs to control Playback.

Objectives:
* Learn how to use the mpd/mpc on the Raspberry Pi
* Learn how to use the nanpy library for Python to interface the Pi to the Arduino
* Make a Cool Internet Radio

Local radios in Africa will receive a tech-savvy upgrade from UNESCO | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

Innovative communication and information technologies are no longer luxuries for big radio stations,” says Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO. Through a UNESCO project, staff at modest radio stations like Iso-Community Radio in a remote Northern province of Zambia will be trained to use new media and mobile phones to improve their broadcasts.

Want to Build Engagement? Be Inclusive

Want to Build Engagement? Be Inclusive | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it
Crowd-sourcing. Co-creation. User-generated content. No matter which of those buzzwords you prefer, the underlying idea is essentially the same: In the world of commercial media, more and more companies are inviting users to help produce the content that they use. What is Facebook, after all, but an immense platform that allows users to operate simultaneously as generators and consumers of information? Or think of the way that most mainstream media outlets now encourage their readers and viewers to submit news tips, video clips, and the like. In short, the line between professional producers and amateur consumers has blurred considerably in recent years.

A Framework and Case Example for Evaluating Cost-Effectiveness of Information Services Across Technologies

This paper introduces a framework to examine the relative effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of different information and communications technologies to deliver a range of social services, using a case example of rural Bangladesh.

It focuses particularly on major sectors such as agriculture, education, disaster response and healthcare.

 

An expert elicitation (using both local and international experts) on ICT effectiveness by service domains shows localization as the key determining factor for any technological intervention. Community based radio broadcasting (CR) appears as the dominant option among the
considered ICTs.

 

...We conclude with a proposed set of policy and operating recommendations to enable effective technology-based information
services for rural Bangladeshi development.

Community radio and local radio | ICT Regulation Toolkit

Community radio and local radio | ICT Regulation Toolkit | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

Local rural radio, which has Internet access, is emerging as one such successful intermediary because it is accessible, affordable and cheap to produce. Further, radio is a mass and an oral medium that promotes community interaction and social communication processes. Radio and Internet can benefit from each other in the following ways:

- Internet resources for radios to exchange information and programming, such as InterWorld Radio, providing access to a huge range of journalists’ reports on a variety of topics;

- Radios using the Internet to provide a variety of information to their listeners; a well-known example is the UNESCO-supported Kothmale Internet Project in Sri Lanka.

Development and Human Rights – What Can the Media Do? | Start | DW.DE | | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

Jānis Kārkliņs, Assistant Director General of Communication and Information of UNESCO, explained how his and other organizations can support both mainstream and social media.
• Create an environment allowing media to be free and editorially independent.
• Ensure that journalists, bloggers and citizens using social media networks can exercise their right to free speech safely and without hindrance.
• Training journalists but also government officials, law enforcement agents and militaries on issues related to freedom of expression and freedom of media.
• Training users in media literacy to enable them to navigate the deluge of information so that they “can distill what is right, what is wrong, which is correct and which is false”.
“We’re developing a theory of media and information literacy. This issue should be in the curriculum of every school. People must be able to assess good from bad information. People tend to rely on whatever source of information they have.”

...

“There’s lots the media can do to promote human rights without being political.”

Exploring how to strengthen tools to engage citizens | SocialBrite | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

Called the Tech for Engagement Summit, the invitation-only gathering brings together 70 leaders and innovators in new technologies for a collaborative working session. The overall goal, we’ve been told, is to explore and to buttress technologies that can be used “to inspire and facilitate on-the-ground action” at the community level. That requires strengthening the network of practitioners working in the space, reviewing the state of tech for engagement and coming up with opportunities to collaborate and work together in the months ahead.

Les usages ne sont plus ce qu'ils étaient. C'est une banalité de le dire, c'est aussi une constatation ordinaire : ils changent tout le temps. Le numérique (au sens large) a engendré tout un tas de basculements/bousculements dans notre façon de vivre et de partager de l'information, de comprendre les dynamiques de territoires, et de s'approprier des outils de publication pour ne pas s'en remettre à des tiers - experts, journalistes, institutionnels de tout poil - pour essayer de saisir ce qui se trame ici ou là.

Quelques jours avant le lancement du système solaire d'alimentation de la radio, la cité d'Oshwe était en ébullition. Les gens marchaient, avec leur radio collée à l'oreille, essayant de trouver la fréquence que les ingénieurs réglaient encore. Ils étaient si passionnés d'obtenir le nouveau signal ; finalement quand ils l'obtenaient, enthousiasmés, ils criaient l'un à l'autre "je l'ai eu ! je l'ai eu! "Les commerçants locaux étaient aussi très enthousiasmés ; se frottant les mains, ils pensaient à toutes les ventes qu'ils feraient.

Communication at the heart of change

Communication at the heart of change explains the essential role that information and communication plays in development. Sustainable development demands that people participate in the debates and decisions that affect their lives. They need to be able to receive information, but also to make their voices heard. But the poor are often excluded from these processes by geography and lack of resources or skills. The video explores what can happen when poor and marginalised people are listened to, and given access to the information they need.

How campaigning NGOs have joined the foreign-reporting business | Ian Burrell

How campaigning NGOs have joined the foreign-reporting business | Ian Burrell | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it
The relationship between the news business and the charity sector has been drastically changed by internet technology. As traditional media has seen its business model undermined and been forced to close international bureaux, NGOs have realised the opportunities to become broadcasters themselves, publishing their material online and diffusing it through social media. Suddenly it is the NGOs, rather than the news media, which have the money to fly photojournalists on foreign assignments in search of images that will support an important campaign.
