Six or Seven Things Social Media Can Do For Democracy 

Six or Seven Things Social Media Can Do For Democracy  | Conetica | Scoop.it

Social media doesn’t work the way we think it should. That’s the conclusion many people have come to in the wake of revelations about Cambridge Analytica’s mining of Facebook data to build political profiles and sway elections. Perhaps the concerns go further back, to the election of a US president in 2016 who seems fueled by social media, the more polarizing and divisive the better. Or perhaps it was Brexit that broke you. Or a gunman “self-investigating” the Comet Ping Pong pizza parlor, spurious accusations of crisis actors at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas and the amazingly inventive web of conspiracies the internet seems to engender. The cyberutopians have retreated, the creators of the modern internet are doing penance and we’re all social media critics now.

La rivoluzione delle imprese recuperate. Una rete innovativa

La rivoluzione delle imprese recuperate. Una rete innovativa | Conetica | Scoop.it
Per anni abbiamo raccontato le loro storie preferendo lo spagnolo. La crisi finanziaria del 2001 aveva messo in ginocchio l’economia argentina, i fallimenti aziendali era consuetudine nelle cronache dei quotidiani. Lì iniziò a fare notizia il fenomeno delle empresas recuperadas, ovvero lavoratori che dinanzi alla chiusura della propria fabbrica occupano gli stabilimenti e ricominciano a produrre organizzandosi in cooperativa. Successivamente, in ossequio allo spirito dei tempi, ci siamo fatti guidare dalla lingua franca e nel racconto si è fatto simbolo un nuovo acronimo: WBO (Workers Buy Out). Cambia l’idioma ma non la sostanza.

Blockchain for education in South Africa: Q&A with Joyce Zhang from ixo and Amply | Conetica | Scoop.it
Blockchain has become one of those buzzwords that commands attention and carries a powerful social glow, yet in the likes of similar buzzwords that have attained such a prized status, it has lost much of its meaning. Blockchain has become a catchall term for just about any digital ledger system regardless of crucial variations in its design. With so many blockchain projects ranging from social impact initiatives to opportunistic marketing ploys, it can be difficult to discern which projects hold real potential.

Crowdsourcing as a Platform for Digital Labor Unions | Arora | International Journal of Communication

Crowdsourcing as a Platform for Digital Labor Unions | Arora | International Journal of Communication | Conetica | Scoop.it

Global complex supply chains have made it difficult to know the realities in factories. This structure obfuscates the networks, channels, and flows of communication between employers, workers, nongovernmental organizations and other vested intermediaries, creating a lack of transparency. Factories operate far from the brands themselves, often in developing countries where labor is cheap and regulations are weak. However, the emergence of social media and mobile technology has drawn the world closer together. Specifically, crowdsourcing is being used in an innovative way to gather feedback from outsourced laborers with access to digital platforms. This article examines how crowdsourcing platforms are used for both gathering and sharing information to foster accountability. We critically assess how these tools enable dialogue between brands and factory workers, making workers part of the greater conversation. We argue that although there are challenges in designing and implementing these new monitoring systems, these platforms can pave the path for new forms of unionization and corporate social responsibility beyond just rebranding.

Last month, leaders in public sector innovation gathered to discuss ways of crowdsourcing new solutions to longstanding problems at IdeaScale’s Open Nation DC.
