But in south China, the absence of patent and copyright enforcement, combined with enormous manufacturing and design capacity, means that phones for the domestic market are wildly innovative -- more than just endless variations on glass-distraction-rectangles.
Artur Coelho's insight:
fabuloso, este vídeo do MIT. não sobre possibilidades que raramente se solidificam nas nossas mãos, mas opções inventivas e criativas que se afastam do paradigma rectângulo sensível ao toque + gaiola dourada da app store: "But in south China, the absence of patent and copyright enforcement, combined with enormous manufacturing and design capacity, means that phones for the domestic market are wildly innovative -- more than just endless variations on glass-distraction-rectangles.

Can’t remember the name of the two elements that scientist Marie Curie discovered? Or who won the 1945 UK general election? Or how many light years away the sun is from the earth? Ask Google.
Constant access to an abundance of online information at the click of a mouse or tap of a smartphone has radically reshaped how we socialise, inform ourselves of the world around us and organise our lives. If all facts can be summoned instantly by looking online, what’s the point of spending years learning them at school and university? In the future, it might be that once young people have mastered the basics of how to read and write, they undertake their entire education merely through accessing the internet via search engines such as Google, as and when they want to know something.
Some educational theorists have argued that you can replace teachers, classrooms, textbooks and lectures by simply leaving students to their own devices to search and collect information about a particular topic online. Such ideas have called into question the value of a traditional system of education, one in which teachers simply impart knowledge to students. Of course, others have warned against the dangers of this kind of thinking and the importance of the teacher and human contact when it comes to learning.
Such debate about the place and purpose of online searching in learning and assessments is not new. But rather than thinking of ways to prevent students from cheating or plagiarising in their assessed pieces of work, maybe our obsession with the “authenticity” of their coursework or assessment is missing another important educational point.
sempre achei este argumento uma idiotice pegada. o google não nos ensina nada que nós não saibamos já. traduzindo: para se ir pesquisar tem pelo menos que se ter a noção de que aquilo que queremos saber mais existe. um analfabeto na maior biblioteca do mundo não deixa de não conseguir perceber patavina daqueles desenhos estranhos nas folhas de papel encadernadas. e depois há a questão da sociedade de informação versus apatia. se quisermos regressar ao velho mundo de elites hiper-conhecedoras e um vasto lumpen meramente treinado a carregar nos botões certos, então este é o caminho...
The burdens placed on Facebook's users are certainly significant; they include not only cognitive labor, but also online harassment, dataveillence, and the performance of the profile–which is pulled in multiple directions, at the same time increasingly sexualized (pulled into online dating sites like Tinder) and entrepreneurialized (pulled into sites like Airbnb), even while the display of the body within the profile is regulated in punitive, sexist fashion.

convoluted, but nailing it, spot on: "The burdens placed on Facebook's users are certainly significant; they include not only cognitive labor, but also online harassment, dataveillence, and the performance of the profile–which is pulled in multiple directions, at the same time increasingly sexualized (pulled into online dating sites like Tinder) and entrepreneurialized (pulled into sites like Airbnb), even while the display of the body within the profile is regulated in punitive, sexist fashion."
If Americans truly want to reduce the amount young people use technology, we should free up more of their time.
Artur Coelho's insight:
"This is the Catch-22 that we’ve trapped today’s youth in. We’ve locked them indoors because we see the physical world as more dangerous than ever before, even though by almost every measure, we live in the safest society to date. We put unprecedented demands on our kids, maxing them out with structured activities, homework and heavy expectations. And then we’re surprised when they’re frazzled and strung out.
For many teenagers, technology is a relief valve."
E Ink displays are an attractive way of displaying information that doesn’t change by the second: they don’t use much power, are easy to read in variable lighting, and happen to be relatively affordable. Now, they’re finding use not just in handheld devices, though—but on the streets of Sydney, Australia.

Invented in 1981 by John W. Jameson, the Walking Gyro is a simple toy that relies on a spinning flywheel and centrifugal forces to take tiny, but steady, steps. Mattel patented the design, but never actually put it into production. And now that its patent has expired, there’s a free 3D-printable version that anyone can make themselves.
