PINGO: NETmundial Adopts Principles on INternet GOvernance

PINGO: NETmundial Adopts Principles on INternet GOvernance | Regulating the web | Scoop.it
The Internet Governance Roadmap, which was adopted recently in Sao Paulo by the Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of the Internet Governance Ecosystem (NETmundial) includes a lot of controversial issues -- from net neutrality to mass surveillance -- and it is unclear how this will be translated into reality. However, the Internet Governance Principles, also adopted by NETmundial, were less controversial, but will have probably a sustainable and deep effect for the future of the Internet.

Oh dear, how is NSA going to tap into all those tweets if they under EU privacy laws and not in the US. I suppose they will have to be satisfied with only scraping up all US tweets.

Risquons-nous de perdre notre mémoire numérique ? | Regulating the web | Scoop.it

Avec le temps, une part importante de la production numérique actuelle pourrait devenir inaccessible. Des institutions aussi prestigieuses que la Nasa sont déjà confrontées à ce problème. Ainsi, les données datant de la construction des sondes Pionner lancées dans les années 1970 sont devenus illisibles par les équipes du Jet Propulsion Laboratory qui les ont exhumées pour résoudre un problème technique rencontrées par les sondes.

Why it's down to this generation to begin preserving video game history

Why it's down to this generation to begin preserving video game history | Regulating the web | Scoop.it

Fans are recognising that not only are things going to get lost but the only people who care enough to preserve games are, well, us. Older generations have different priorities and their own things to look after, mostly themselves at this point in time. The preservation of video game history falls to those of us in the here and now, the ones playing them.

Dans de nombreux cas, Google s'adapte au contexte politique, et donne au lecteur ce qui est conforme à la vision de son pays.Sur cet exemple repéré par l'excellent compte Twitter @Amazing_Maps, le résultat d'une recherche de cartes n'est pas le même selon que l'on se connecte à Google d'Allemagne, d'Inde ou de Chine.Les conflits frontaliers sont ainsi gommés pour se mettre en conformité avec l'opinion

Truth crushed to earth doesn’t magically rise again. And the information that does percolate to the top isn’t necessarily more accurate than the conventional wisdom of eras past.

Technology Is Short, But Story Is Long

Technology Is Short, But Story Is Long | Regulating the web | Scoop.it
I have two questions for you:

What comes to mind when I say "Shakespeare?"

What comes to mind when I mention the "water wheel?"

Both were born in the 16th century. Both advanced Elizabethan culture in profound ways. One wrote "Romeo & Juliet."

That's the difference between platform and art.

Technology and story.

Technology can bring you stuff (like water and Facebook posts). Story can change your idea of the stuff you want brought to you.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 14, 8:50 AM

(From the article): In fact, most of us (as marketers and as consumers) judge a platform by how well it performs 3 key functions: delivering stories we desire; when and where we desire them; in the form that's easiest to enjoy and share.

 

As Shakespeare liked to say, "The play's the thing!"

 

He never said, "The stage (or the platform) is the thing!"

 

That's why today's major technology and social media enterprises – Apple and Amazon and Facebook and Google – are in the throes of a hiring frenzy. Not just for developers and coders, but for art directors and writers and strategists and storytellers.

 

That's why Facebook, the behemoth that once cajoled marketers into adopting "more useful metrics" such as "likes" and "engagement," has unapologetically tossed its old playbook.

Patricia Stitson's curator insight, April 14, 12:37 PM

I agree but:

 

Will there come an age where a technology will become so integrated into the fabric of our collective story that it DOES not fade away... but rather like cultural stories or some religions, learns how to adapt to the changing framework of its own self?

 

The authors overall point is indisputable, story is at the heart of literally everything today, but I would counter that his argument about the fading of past technologies as the reason why we should focus on story is, well, itself archaic.  

 

The integration of story and technology is creating an online culture where one is indistinguishable from the other.  Not so with Beta Tapes of old.  That is HARD ware not SOFT ware.  The story was separate from the hardware that delivered it. 100%.  Not so with Facebook etc. I do not suppose to predict that FB will not be usurped by another platform as Friendster did. 

 

I am simply asking another question.  How is the presence of technology change the manner in which we view how we tell our story?  When will how we tell our stories become so dependent on technology that the latter itself become a part of the story.  Or has it already?

79 Theses on Technology. For Disputation.

79 Theses on Technology. For Disputation. | Regulating the web | Scoop.it

Alan Jacobs has written seventy-nine theses on technology for disputation. A disputation is an old technology, a formal technique of debate and argument that took shape in medieval universities in Paris, Bologna, and Oxford in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. In its most general form, a disputation consisted of a thesis, a counter-thesis, and a string of arguments, usually buttressed by citations of Aristotle, Augustine, or the Bible. But disputations were not just formal arguments. They were public performances that trained university students in how to seek and argue for the truth. They made demands on students and masters alike. Truth was hard won; it was to be found in multiple, sometimes conflicting traditions; it required one to give and recognize arguments; and, perhaps above all, it demanded an epistemic humility, an acknowledgment that truth was something sought, not something produced.
