INTERNET_RISING-a digi-documentary investigating the evolving relationships between the Internet and collective consciousness of humanity. | Singularity Scoops | Scoop.it

INTERNET RISING is a digi-documentary investigating the evolving relationships between the Internet and collective consciousness of humanity. It provokes many questions about ancient and modern paradoxes of life, its pleasures and pains... and the gray area contrasts in between - but most of all it is meant to be an inspiring conversation starter; a launchpad for future remixes of collective consciousness. It is also spiced with a bit of humorous satire to give our *overloaded* BIG DATA _information_ dump() brains a little break from the daily race :)

INTERNET RISING is a labor of love comprising a rapid fire mashup stream of live interviews all conducted within the web sphere. The film’s participants include many profound personalities and key internet influencers ranging from professors, corporate academics, futurists, researchers, writers, bloggers, media creators, activists, gamers, educators, scientists, artists, innovators - real humans, all of whom provide amazing insights into how our state of the world is changing and transforming via various forces of economic, social, geographic, political, philosophical development... all centered around technology’s transformative and generative power.

Real-Time News Via Twitter Combined With Curation Tools Can Produce A Powerful Form Of Journalism | GigaOM

Real-Time News Via Twitter Combined With Curation Tools Can Produce A Powerful Form Of Journalism | GigaOM | Singularity Scoops | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article:

 

When the Arab Spring demonstrations were under way in Egypt’s Tahrir Square and reports were streaming out through Twitter and Facebook and text messages and cellphone videos, it was easy to feel superior to the Egyptian government. How could they not realize that information can no longer be contained by blockades or even internet blackouts when everyone has the power to publish?

 

Jon Mitchell at Read/Write Web described in his post about the use of social media around the Occupy protests, real-time news via Twitter and Flickr and other services, when combined with curation tools can produce a powerful form of journalism that equals — or even exceeds — what traditional sources can provide.

 

One of the real threats to traditional journalism that come out of this phenomenon (if there are any) is that the ability to report and publish and broadcast the news in real time from events such as the Zucotti Park protests can turn anyone into what journalists have traditionally been: namely, a trusted filter for the news. Mitchell describes "how one college student created a summary of the event that got tens of thousands of views in a matter of hours" and was embedded by the Washington Post. Does that make him a journalist? Of course it does...

The Internet Looks Like a Fractal Dandelion | Computers | DISCOVER Magazine

The Internet Looks Like a Fractal Dandelion | Computers | DISCOVER Magazine | Singularity Scoops | Scoop.it

In 2004 Barrett Lyon’s friends bet him $50 that he couldn’t map the entire Internet in a day. Within two weeks the self-described technologist and entrepreneur had created a program that could output a detailed visualization of Internet connectivity in a few hours. Seven years and billions more Internet-connected devices later, Lyon is still at it. This cosmic-looking image, one of his newest creations, traces the millions of routes along which data can travel and pinpoints the hubs receiving the most traffic. Internet giants such as AT&T and Google manage the most heavily used networks, which appear here as glowing yellow orbs; they tend to concentrate in the center of the sphere. The less popular local networks (red) sit on the periphery. Although Lyon’s visualizations have appeared in computing textbooks and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, he says he has yet to collect on his bet.
