Will the personalised Web destroy discovery? | The Next Web

Will the personalised Web destroy discovery? | The Next Web | social music | Scoop.it

It’s been a big month for the evolution of the personalised web, led by Mark Zuckerberg and the unveiling of Graph Search. Much as the product has been lauded – it filling a gap in social search that we didn’t even really know existed – it has also been met with some criticism, not least around the fact that it limits the breadth of information you can access. The more tailored you make your search, the more limited the search results will be, with the default option of showing you Bing results really being no different to the current search experience in Facebook.

 

The biggest question that Graph Search raises – and this applies to the personalised web overall – is whether personalisation will ultimately destroy discovery. The premise behind the personalised web is clear: When our time online is at a premium, coupled with the amount of data about ourselves we are freely sharing, there is a clear opportunity for web services and social platforms to automatically personalise content and show only what’s most relevant to us. Where does this leave spontaneity, and broadening your information sources outside your immediate interests and activity?

Berlin celebrates digital culture | BBC

Berlin celebrates digital culture | BBC | social music | Scoop.it

Thanks to the brutal winds that blow in from the Russian steppes, Berlin’s winters can be notoriously chilly. Fortunately, the city’s abundant venues and expansive creative scene often combine to provide refuge against the frosty post-New Year blues.

 

Alongside such other renowned winter staples as the Berlin Berlinale and Berlin Fashion Week, one of the city’s most exciting events is the Transmediale Festival. The annual five-day event, this year running from 29 January to 3 February, was founded in 1988 and has gone on to draw from the city’s vast reserve of artists, tech-geeks and digital visionaries to become one of the city’s most cutting-edge events.

 

Built around an enlivening (and enlightening) flurry of presentations, collaborations, lectures, conferences, films and exhibitions – all of which revolve around themes of digital culture and media art – Transmediale is today big and professional enough to be globally relevant and genuinely thought-provoking, yet way more manageable than, say, Austin’s SXSW or Barcelona’s Sonar. 

 

Since 2002, aside from a brief spell at Berlin’s Akademie der Künste, Transmediale has been held at the distinctive oyster-shaped Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of World Cultures), where this year’s main action will again take place. The 2013 theme is “Back When Pluto Was A Planet” – a metaphor for the fluid, sometimes arbitrary shifts in the supposedly stable realms of knowledge and classification, and the first part of a new conceptual program called the Imaginary Museum, which aims to connect all upcoming Berlin festivals and their annual changing focuses.

Antiquity Music presents the extraordinarily beautiful Wheelharp at NAMM | Gizmag.com

Antiquity Music presents the extraordinarily beautiful Wheelharp at NAMM | Gizmag.com | social music | Scoop.it

As Jon Jones was regulating his hurdy gurdy back in 2001, he began toying with the idea of creating a mechanically-bowed instrument with a full-scale chromatic keyboard. He went on to build two working models before hooking up with Antiquity Music's founder Mitchell Manger to work on improving the design. After a few more revisions, a stunning pre-production Wheelharp was premiered at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim (CA) last week.

 

The Wheelharp is being made in two different flavors, one with a curved (radial) keyboard and the other with a flat (linear) keyboard. Each will be available in three different octave ranges – a 37-string, 3-octave version, a 4-octave unit with 49 strings (shown below), and a model that spans five octaves and has 61 strings. It has a beautiful Victorian period-look oak body with rosette appointments, a laminated maple pinblock and a cast aluminum pulley.

Connect, Create, Collaborate: Sparking the Maker Movement at your Library | Yalsa Blog | social music | Scoop.it
A makerspace (sometimes also referred to as a hackerspace, hackspace or hacklab) is a location where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, electronics, engineering, and/or digital or electronic art, can connect, create and collaborate. Makerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops, and/or studios where hackers and makers come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.

Many libraries have embraced the maker movement and have incorporated makerspaces into the services they provide as they both encourage community building, skill sharing, participatory learning and the concepts of scientific and technological savvy as 21st century literacies.
