'They vindicate John Berger's oft-quoted remark, that the compulsion to art is born in human beings "like a foal that can walk straight away". We cannot escape it, and never have.'

Libraries of the future are going to change in some unexpected ways

Libraries of the future are going to change in some unexpected ways | Research_topic | Scoop.it
Some libraries have 3D printers and other cutting-edge tools that makes them not just places of learning, but creation. "I think the library as a place of access to materials, physical and virtual, becomes increasingly important," Pescovitz says. People will come to see libraries as places to create the future, not just learn about the present.

At 25, the World Wide Web Is Still a Long Way From Reality

At 25, the World Wide Web Is Still a Long Way From Reality | Research_topic | Scoop.it
The web's not dead. But the dream of truly democratized media is still a dream.
Artur Coelho's insight:
“Sure, you can upload your own videos to YouTube, which is owned by Google. But will they show up in anyone’s search results? You can publish your manifesto, but will anyone see the links to it you post on Facebook? It’s as though everyone now has a printing press, but there are only two stores in town that sell newspapers. If you want to find an audience, you have to go through them.”

Squirrel Girl Shows Us Computer Science Can Be Extremely Metal

Squirrel Girl Shows Us Computer Science Can Be Extremely Metal | Research_topic | Scoop.it
In a quest to continue being the go-to comic for creating the most nonsensical blogs, this week’s issue of Squirrel Girl uses basic computer science and counting in binary to deliver a splash page so fundamentally rad it should probably grace the cover of a mid-’80s metal album. Suffice to say, it’s rather brilliant.

Does it matter if Google is rewiring our minds? Ask Plato | Steven Poole

Does it matter if Google is rewiring our minds? Ask Plato | Steven Poole | Research_topic | Scoop.it
For “writing” read “Google” and you have much of the burden of current worries about how use of the internet may be degrading our minds. Writing itself is just as much an external prosthetic technology (“characters which are no part of themselves,” as the Egyptian king complains) as the internet is. Writing is also a tool of extended cognition. The difference is that we have had thousands of years to get used to it. The truth about the question of whether our reliance on modern electronic prostheses is better or worse for us is that it’s simply too early to tell.

Are Replicas Changing the Way We Experience Art? - Nexus - Zócalo Public Square

Are Replicas Changing the Way We Experience Art? - Nexus - Zócalo Public Square | Research_topic | Scoop.it
You are in the Chauvet cave, 35,000 years old. As you enter, the walkway you traverse winds around spot-lit, saber-toothed stalactites and stalagmites. The rough-skin texture of the stone walls is slick in the perpetually damp dark. Your flashlight picks out first one, then more, prehistoric paintings on the wall. A deer, bison, a rhinoceros, all painted in charcoal black by Paleolithic hands. Or were they? Something is missing, even a blind person could tell that. The scent is all wrong. Instead of damp mustiness, it smells of, well, tourists. You are not in the real Chauvet cave, which is closed to the public, as the atmospheric conditions which preserve its fragile paintings must be maintained. Instead, you are in the Caverne du Pont d’Arc, a recently opened replica of the Chauvet cave. It’s accurate down to the last undulation of the stone wall—to the last stalactite—but patently false. Now, you travel blindfolded to some anonymous, freshly built art museum. …
