Network Literacy: Practices, Definitions, Implications

Recent scholarship on new media literacy has continued to nuance its definitions for the practices of producing and understanding the texts of computer-mediated communication. Stuart Selber’s Multiliteracies for a Digial Age and Gregory Ulmer’s Internet Invention: From Literacy to Electracy each provided substantial discussion of what it means (and what it takes) for writers to be “new media literate.” While the two texts were wholly different in method and approach, each offered important and useful ways of thinking about the “literacy” part of network literacy. Each argued that we cannot underestimate the extent to which context and culture inform digital writing, and that digital writing environments and practices present us with a unique opportunity to examine the social and cultural materialities of writing..

Collective Intelligence as Community Discourse and Action

"11th February 2012 – Seattle, Washington
Humanity now finds itself faced with a range of highly complex problems – such as climate change, the spread of disease, international security, scientific collaborations, product development, and so on – that call upon us to harvest the collective intelligence of large numbers of globally distributed experts and stakeholders.
Collective Intelligence (CI) research investigates the design of infrastructures to enable collectives to think and act intelligently, and intriguingly, more intelligently than individuals. Technologies such as idea management or argumentation tools, blogs, wikis, chats, forums, Q&A sites, and social networks provide unprecedented opportunities for entire communities or organizations to express a discourse and act at a massive scale, but very little is known on:

When does effective discourse help a collective outperform individuals?
What functions should the next generation of social platforms support?
How can we allow communities to efficiently manage many diverse ideas, argument, and deliberate?
What patterns in discourse and action can be modelled computationally?"

An online Magna Carta: Berners-Lee calls for bill of rights for web

An online Magna Carta: Berners-Lee calls for bill of rights for web | technoculture | Scoop.it

The inventor of the world wide web believes an online "Magna Carta" is needed to protect and enshrine the independence of the medium he created and the rights of its users worldwide.
Sir Tim Berners-Lee told the Guardian the web had come under increasing attack from governments and corporate influence and that new rules were needed to protect the "open, neutral" system.
Speaking exactly 25 years after he wrote the first draft of the first proposal for what would become the world wide web, the computer scientist said: "We need a global constitution – a bill of rights."
Berners-Lee's Magna Carta plan is to be taken up as part of an initiative called "the web we want", which calls on people to generate a digital bill of rights in each country – a statement of principles he hopes will be supported by public institutions, government officials and corporations.

Doug Engelbart created much of what we know today as personal digital media -- word processing, hypertext, multimedia, the mouse, the point and click interface -- in order to help human teams solve complex problems. A completely separate effort by Minsky, McCarthy, et. al. focused on machine intelligence. Today, we're seeing these efforts coming together.

The Future of Wearable Technology

The Future of Wearable Technology | technoculture | Scoop.it

You probably thought your Uncle Henry was a little weird (and annoying) when he kept showing you how many more Nike FuelBand calories he needed to burn/earn to reach his preset daily goal. But what’s amazing is how that little wrist band with its tight feedback loop displaying points can actually motivate people to improve their lifestyle. Oh, it also makes a nice watch.

 

We’re at the dawn of a new industry loosely called "wearable technology" that may have reached $4.6 billion in sales around the world already this year.And Google Glass isn’t even for sale yet. Many geeks already are on board. The April Modis Geek Pride Survey of people aged 18 or over found that "61 percent of self-described geeks said they would buy and wear a smart watch," and "56 percent would do the same with smart glasses." Perhaps even more interesting, 37 percent of non-geeks were also interested in smart watches, and 35 percent were interested in smart glasses....But where is the trend going?

40 years of icons: the evolution of the modern computer interface

40 years of icons: the evolution of the modern computer interface | technoculture | Scoop.it

Fifty years ago, the word 'computer' had a very different meaning. Prior to World War II, the word referred not to machines, but to people (mostly women in order to save costs) hired as human calculators. But by the late-1960’s that began to change. What happened was not simply the advance of technology (though that helped), but a change in philosophy: a revolution in thinking.

NET LANGUAGE: Prosodic Features in Facebook Communication

Rapid evolution of communication technologies has changed language use, enabling new forms of discourse, new forms of authorship, and new ways to create and participate in communities. Therefore, this paper examines how the prosodic features of spoken language such as intonation, rhythm, and stress are communicated in Facebook via unique strategies to convey nuances such as emphasis, sarcasm and loudness. The data for this paper is collected from Facebook walls posted by Maseno university students to their friends. Facebook walls are platform for the interlocutors to communicate with their Facebook friends. The study indicates that students use prosodic features such as emoticons, laughter, phoneticons (capital, exclamations, full stops) and multiple vowels when communicating with their friends. The findings reveal that users adapt language to Facebook communication to form unique constructions of prosodic features. This paper hopes to enrich the knowledge on the study of computer-mediated communication and to motivate other researchers to conduct further studies in this area.

"Our Final Invention" --Will Artificial Intelligence End the Human Epoch?

"Our Final Invention" --Will Artificial Intelligence End the Human Epoch? | technoculture | Scoop.it

It has been claimed that Mankind's last great invention will be the first self-replicating intelligent machine. The Hollywood cliché that artificial intelligence will take over the world could soon become scientific reality as AI matches then surpasses human intelligence. Each year AI’s cognitive speed and power doubles — ours does not. Corporations and government agencies are pouring billions into achieving AI’s Holy Grail — human-level intelligence. Scientists argue that AI that advanced will have survival drives much like our own. Can we share the planet with it and survive?

Our Final Invention, a brilliant new summary of the last 15 years of academic research on risks from advanced AI by James Barrat, explores how the pursuit of Artificial Intelligence challenges our existence with machines that won’t love us or hate us, but whose indifference could spell our doom. Until now, intelligence has been constrained by the physical limits of its human hosts. What will happen when the brakes come off the most powerful force in the universe?

Mapping The Internet: 12 Infographic Maps | technoculture | Scoop.it

The internet is a worldwide network of computers, but it seems very intangible to most of us. In a general sense, the internet is made up of a lot of different components: Websites, users, servers, browsers, networking cables, and more. Some of these things have a physical component, and some of them do not, but even the ones that do have a physical component can be hard to conceptualize spatially. These maps help to lend that spatial component to the Internet.
