The Real Revolution Is Openness, Clay Shirky Tells Tech Leadersl

The Real Revolution Is Openness, Clay Shirky Tells Tech Leadersl | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it

Mr. Shirky took that message to a group of higher-education-technology leaders who have been buffeted by a rapidly evolving ed-tech landscape. Mr. Shirky, in a keynote speech kicking off this year’s Educause conference, explored how technology was changing everything, from research to publishing to studying.

How we educate everyone, from kids to adults, is going to change.  I think Mr. Shirky nailed it that openess is the revolutionary part of that change.

lowering friction reduces costs, creates more opportunity. apply this to social good as a horizontal methodology, applied to the sharing economy. creates resilience, abundance of flexible resources in reserve for transitions and shocks.

Politics Transformed: The High Tech Battle for Your Vote | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it

"Technology and digital media have changed how we do virtually everything, including how we choose our leaders. In 2008, then Senator Barack Obama's innovative use of the Internet for organizing gave us a glimpse at how social media could revolutionize modern campaigning. A lot has changed in the past four years, and social media is now front and center -- an irresistible force in our everyday lives.
Politics Transformed: The High Tech Battle for Your Vote is an in-depth look at how digital media is affecting elections. From online ad targeting to Internet voting, from political crowdfunding to massive data mining, Mashable pulls back the curtain to reveal the trends changing politics in 2012 and beyond."

New Left Review - Rob Lucas: The Critical Net Critic

"Today, amid increasing media noise about such things as Facebook addiction and Twitter trolling, the sceptical literature has taken on a new prominence, with books pouring from the trade presses and a steady stream of articles fretting about the deleterious effects of technology. If we are to attempt a disillusioned, materialist critique of current technology, an interrogation of such existing negative literature may be a useful step, helping us at least to deflate the grander claims of Silicon Valley’s chief boosters. Within this huge literature, the work of Nicholas Carr stands out for the clarity and breadth of historical vision he has brought to bear. With its expansive interdisciplinary scope, weaving economic and technological history, neuroscience and McLuhanist media theory, Carr’s project offers a particularly fertile basis for reflection."

CLEAN IT: the secret EU surveillance plan that wasn’t | openDemocracy

"There was a lot of interest among EU policy wonks and digital rights people last week about an initiative called CLEAN IT, following the leak of its “confidential” draft recommendations. “Police to 'patrol' Facebook and Twitter for terrorists under EU plan” announced the UK’s Daily Telegraph. Cory Doctorow blogged about how an “EU working group” had produced the “stupidest set of proposed Internet rules in the history of the human race”. The blogosphere was soon awash with reports of the new ACTA. There was only one problem: CLEAN IT is not an EU working group, and its proposals are not an EU plan. (...)

What we’re really talking about then is a few meetings around Europe where representatives of law enforcement agencies, industry and government come together to discuss “terrorist use of the internet”. To most of the participants, it was probably a bit of a ‘jolly’; to the project leaders it was probably the cutting edge of cyber-terror policy. For what it’s worth, “terrorist use of the internet” is being discussed all over the place, including at the United Nations and Council of Europe, though these initiatives have apparently attracted much less critical attention."
