The Documented Life

The Documented Life | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
We constantly interrupt our experiences to make a record of them.
BeerBergman's insight:

"We interrupt conversations for documentation all the time", claims Sherry Turkle. But we might consider that documentation has become part of the conversation, a sort of augmented conversation. 

I do not agree with Sherry Turkle on a whole lot of things, and again, I feel this article expresses more an ideology (like the paragraph about Obama taking a selfie at the Mandela memorial service) than a serious neutral request for what digital lives are about. 

"A selfie, like any other photograph, interrupts experience to mark the moment", she says. But I consider the taking or the photograph, including the selfie, like part of the experience. A must read though. Excerpt.

***

"A selfie, like any photograph, interrupts experience to mark the moment. In this, it shares something with all the other ways we break up our day, when we text during class, in meetings, at the theater, at dinners with friends. And yes, at funerals, but also more regularly at church and synagogue services. We text when we are in bed with our partners and spouses. We watch our political representatives text during sessions.

***

Technology doesn’t just do things for us. It does things to us, changing not just what we do but who we are. The selfie makes us accustomed to putting ourselves and those around us “on pause” in order to document our lives. It is an extension of how we have learned to put our conversations “on pause” when we send or receive a text, an image, an email, a call. When you get accustomed to a life of stops and starts, you get less accustomed to reflecting on where you are and what you are thinking.

We don’t experience interruptions as disruptions anymore."

This 

BeerBergman's insight:

Not recent, but it seems an interesting book, on an ever important subject: the relationship between design, practice and ethics. 

Excerpt.

***

"Approaches to design recognise design as a practice that can transform human experience and understanding, expanding its role beyond stylistic enhancement. The traditional roles of design, designer and designed object are therefore redefined through new understanding of the relationship between the material and immaterial aspects of design where the design product and the design process are embodiments of ideas, values and beliefs."
