Decentralization as a mean of empowerment

Decentralization as a mean of empowerment | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
A good thing, however, is that there are more and more actors trying to solve challenges through this process of interchange. Among them is the EU as a global player which recently brought the Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation (CAPS) call into practice. This demonstrates that also government agencies increasingly support processes to create awareness of problems and possible solutions which request collective efforts and enable new forms of social innovation. Distributed knowledge creation and data from real environments is at the center of their interest to empower people.

Also investors move empowerment and decentralization more into focus as a next macro trend. Fred Wilson from Union Square Ventures underlines for example during his talk at Le Web the need to transform bureaucratic hierarchies into technology driven networks. He clearly sees the need to “unbundle” or in other words to decentralize everything that we see tied into today’s’ platforms. The new social dynamic that will result from this process will be more then ever driven by societal empowerment and behavioural learning processes enabled through the interplay of global knowledge and local action – or in one word: decentralization.

RSLN | Rudy Ricciotti, architecte du MUCEM : « Il faut sortir de la fascination béate du numérique »

RSLN | Rudy Ricciotti, architecte du MUCEM : « Il faut sortir de la fascination béate du numérique » | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
Architecte, ingénieur, essayiste et depuis peu dramaturge : Rudy Ricciotti est aussi réputé pour le caractère prolifique de son œuvre que pour son personnage d’artiste touche-à-tout et haut en couleurs. Invité à discuter des impacts du numérique sur l’architecture et le futur de la ville, il livre aux Techdays 2015 ses impressions sans ambage sur la ville dite « intelligente » et les mirages du tout numérique qui sont finalement préjudiciables à la transformation en cours.
BeerBergman's insight:

J'sais pas quoi en penser, entre le discours utopique et dystopique de Rudy Ricciotti. Entre exemples trop faciles et non-pertinentes et archi-vérités qui ne choquent plus personne. Mais pas le moindre ombre d'une vision constructive; enfin, c'est mon impression, au premier regard.

Data REVOLUTION : le troisième acte de la révolution numérique

Data REVOLUTION : le troisième acte de la révolution numérique | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

Il y a quarante ans, le numérique, c’était l’informatique, c'était surtout de la puissance de calcul et le rêve d'approcher les fonctions cognitives supérieures de l'Homme... Ca allait déjà changer le monde : des ingénieurs aventureux, qui découvraient ce monde nouveau avec émerveillement, bricolaient des Apple, inventaient des codes courts (Microsoft), ou, en France, calculaient la voilure du Concorde ou la trajectoire de la fusée Ariane.


Via Philippe Gammaire, Didier Chauvin, CFPJ Entreprises, JP Fourcade, association concert urbain
BeerBergman's insight:

"Nous vivons désormais dans un monde où les "données" accessibles sur les réseaux dépassent l'imagination de nos prédécesseurs. Où elles sont construites par les individus et les objets eux-mêmes, où elles s'échangent de particulier à particulier, de point à point, où elles circulent avec abondance, mal structurées, en un flux qui ressemble un peu au sang de notre système, qui transporte l'information, l'énergie et l'oxygène. Nous vivons dans un monde ou par leur abondance et leur maniabilité, les données permettent de manipuler, dans leur complexité (dans leur distribution exacte), des phénomènes qui étaient jusque là approchés par des concepts approximatifs (et par des valeurs moyennes)."

How One Woman Hid Her Pregnancy From Big Data

How One Woman Hid Her Pregnancy From Big Data | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

w that A Princeton University professor tried to hide her pregnancy from targeted online advertising for the past nine months. It wasn't easy.

BeerBergman's insight:

It has become mainstream within certain communities not to deliver any personal data that can be used for commercial activities, and that alone raises important questions for me.

***

Whereas I can understand that people don't want their whole life rendered visible online, the point of not being approached for commercial benefits by a third party at all, seems to me a bit over the top.

***
That is to say: interesting exercice, but what does it say? You don't want other to propose their services to you? You don't feel comfortable or are not sure you can refuse the proposal? You are overwhelmed with everything others propose to you and zapping is not an option? If not, what else, besides the exercice? 
Also, you rarely hear these sounds from entrepreneurs, or from people gaining their money in businesses: frequently, it is the socially accepted habit of people in the service industry or of those in a scientific environment. 

*** 
Perhaps the most important question it raises is: how does the fact that other people possess information about you change the image you have of yourself, image others have of yourself and thus change you as a person?

18. Webstock 2014 Talk Notes and References - postarchitectural

BeerBergman's insight:

I discovered this extremely talented guy, called Sha through his blog. A must read. And don't forget to visit his gallery and his Pinterest boards :-). Excerpt of just one article.

***

"I prepared for this talk by collecting links, notes, and references in a flat text file, like I did for Eyeo and Visualized. These references are vaguely sorted into the structure of the talk. Roughly, I tried to talk about the future happening all around us, the startup ecosystem and the pressures for growth that got us there, and the dangerous sides of it both at an individual and a corporate level. I ended by talking about ways for us as a community to intervene in these systems of growth.

Public services are becoming increasingly algorithmic, a reality that has spawned hyperbolic comparisons to RoboCop and Minority Report, enforcement droids and pre-cogs. But the future of high-tech policymaking looks less like science fiction and more like Google’s PageRank algorithm. For example, according to the Chicago Tribune, Robert McDaniel, a 22-year-old...

Americans’ Privacy Strategies Post-Snowden | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

Nearly two years after Snowden's revelations, 87% of Americans say they have heard about U.S. surveillance programs. 

BeerBergman's insight:

For the records. And maybe to debate. Excerpt.

"Many have not considered or are not aware of some of the more commonly available tools that could make their communications and activities more private

One potential reason some have not changed their behaviors is that 54% believe it would be “somewhat” or “very” difficult to find tools and strategies that would help them be more private online and in using their cell phones. Still, notable numbers of citizens say they have not adopted or even considered some of the more commonly available tools that can be used to make online communications and activities more private:

Zombie Selfies and Data That Won't Stay Deleted

Zombie Selfies and Data That Won't Stay Deleted | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
But attention has shifted within popular news discourse to focus on the selfie, using it as a kind of modern folk-devil to symbolise a range of social problems and anxieties.
Secondly, the prospect of ‘naked selfies’ that cannot be deleted recalls other, much older forms of social stigma that cannot be removed. Rather than approach digital technologies as offering something liberatory and fun, we are encouraged instead to view every act of photography as a potential burden that can mark us forever, the shame lingering long after we had hoped to eradicate it. This is simple fear-mongering, evident in The Daily Mail‘s assertion that wiping phones does not delete your selfies. The ‘you’ referred to is both assumed to take naked selfies, and chastised for doing so, the fear of shame being used as a means for curbing behaviour.
BeerBergman's insight:

excellent analysis. Agree 100%. another excerpt.

***

"Of course this is an absurd limitation on personal freedom, and conceptualises things in simplistic terms of safe / not safe. One cannot stay indoors every day for fear of what might happen outdoors, and the same applies here. Instead of presenting selfie-taking as something to be feared, and as an uncontrollable monster, we need a reframing of the conversation, that conceptualises data breaches such as this without resorting to shaming. But that would require a shift in the perception of selfies, away from corrosive notions of embarrassment or disgrace, towards an acceptance that – gosh!- some people like to take photos of themselves. I’m not going to hold my breath, though."
