“History shows a typical progression of information technologies, from somebody’s hobby to somebody’s industry; from jury-rigged contraption to slick production marvel; from a freely accessible channel to one strictly controlled by a single corporation or cartel — from open to closed system.” — Tim Wu

Monitoramento de Facebook: o que muda e como se preparar

Neste primeiro de maio, ironicamente, o Facebook passou a “dificultar” o trabalho dos profissionais da querida área de monitoramento de mídias sociais. Nesta data passaram a valer as novas regras das APIs do Facebook. O principal impacto para o mercado de monitoramento de mídias sociais é que nenhuma ferramenta, nem usuário, poderá fazer coleta de dados brutos a partir de pesquisa de termos. Isto significa que não teremos mais acesso ao texto bruto ou ao perfil dos usuários (nem sequer  nome e avatar!) de quem mencionar

Mediengruppe Bitnik_Robô é preso na Suíça por comprar ecstasy na deep web | Complexidade | Scoop.it

" Um robô de compras aleatórias na DarkNet" foi programado em outubro de 2014 pelo grupo de arte suíço !Mediengruppe Bitnik. Ele recebeu semanalmente a quantidade de 100 dólares em bitcoins para explorar a deep web — a parte não indexada da internet, acessível apenas por navegadores especiais, como o Tor. Ele adquiriu todos os produtos no Agora, um mercado negro online onde é possível comprar itens ilegais. As compras aleatórias foram depois enviadas para a galeria Kunst Halle St Gallen" e alguns itens (também aleatórios) como o ecstasy foram apreendidos pela polícia suiça" XD

10 stunning images show the beauty hidden in pi | Ana Swanson | WashPost.com

10 stunning images show the beauty hidden in pi | Ana Swanson | WashPost.com | Complexidade | Scoop.it

Saturday -- March 14, 2015, or 3/14/15 -- marks an extremely nerdy holiday. It is the official celebration of π, the magical, mathematical and infinite constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

For any circle you can imagine, if you divide the distance around the circle by the distance across it, you will get pi, or 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679821480865132823066470938446095505822317253594081284811174502841027019385…

We could keep going, but you get the picture.

Some people will celebrate the holiday by making and eating pies (Washington restaurants are offering specials on everything from pizza to banana cream). Others will run a Pi-K race of 3.14 kilometers. And some data tinkerers are making art that visualize pi’s infinite and random digits.

One of the best known of these data tinkerers is Martin Krzywinski, a scientist who specializes in bioinformatics, or using computer science and statistics to understand biological data. Krzywinski started publishing his pi art in 2013, beginning with this visualization:

Para descifrar la alta estabilidad del sistema de dominación liberal hay que entender cómo funcionan los actuales mecanismos de poder. El comunismo como mercancía es el fin de la revolución
Luciana Santos's insight:

¿Por qué el régimen de dominación neoliberal es tan estable? ¿Por qué hay tan poca resistencia? ¿Por qué toda resistencia se desvanece tan rápido? ¿Por qué ya no es posible la revolución a pesar del creciente abismo entre ricos y pobres? Para explicar esto es necesario una comprensión adecuada de cómo funcionan hoy el poder y la dominación.

Engineering an Anthropocene Citizenship Framework

This article presents an Anthropocene citizen-cantered framework by incorporating the neuroscience of sustainability related stressors, the biology of collaboration in multi-agent ecosystems such as urban systems, and by emphasising on the importance of harnessing the collective intelligence of the crowd in addressing wicked challenges of sustainable development. The Anthropocene citizenship framework aims to transcend the cognitive model of global citizenship and sustainability to a dynamic, resilient and thriving mental model of collective cooperation.

How the web lost its way – and its founding principles

How the web lost its way – and its founding principles | Complexidade | Scoop.it

"The web evolved into a powerful, ubiquitous tool because it was built on egalitarian principles and because thousands of individuals, universities and companies have worked, both independently and together as part of the World Wide Web Consortium [established by Berners-Lee so that stakeholders could work together in open groups to build a better web than any company could build by itself], to expand its capabilities based on those principles."

But, in spreading from the grassroots up, his invention has arguably lost many of the egalitarian principles Berners-Lee hoped for. It has become less straightforwardly a force for good. Earlier this month, Charles Leadbeater, former policy adviser to the Labour government and a champion of the web's potential to give power to hitherto deprived groups, published a report called A Better Web for the Nominet Trust pointing to the pervasive misogyny of the web as an example of how the democratising potential of the internet has not been fulfilled (...)"

CyberACTIVISM Within the Global Digital Divide: a Case Study of Peru

The following thesis wants to explore if and to what extent cyber-activism is possible in a developing country such as Peru, in the context of the global digital divide. In order to do that, it
will investigate Peruvians‟ perception of online activism; it will take into account recent cases of online activism from Peru; and it will put into discussion several concepts such as alternative media,
the democratic divide and the global digital divide.
The interest for this subject has emerged from my contact with news regarding the social movements taking place in Peru, in order to protect indigenous communities against resource depletion and exploitation.
In order to conduct the research, I have used qualitative unobtrusive research methods such as media content analysis and netnography.
