Crap Detection 101 | City Brights: Howard Rheingold

Crap Detection 101 | City Brights: Howard Rheingold | NOMOBIZAU | Scoop.it

Self described as Online Instigator. Header quote: “Every man should have a built-in automatic crap detector operating inside him.” Ernest Hemingway, 1954

 

Rheingold writes, "crap [is] a technical term I use for information tainted by ignorance, inept communication, or deliberate deception."

 

Although this article, assigned for Change11 MOOC, is about detecting crap online, adjuncts shovel it regularly in form of insincereand consequently broken promises, runarounds, raw deals, offers that never materialize. It starts in graduate school. Crap detection is a survival skill. Until someone writes the adjunct guide to academic crap detection, apply the basic principles herein.

So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern. We have no clear understanding of what bullshit is

Wikinomics and its discontents: a critical analysis of Web 2.0 business manifestos

'Collaborative culture', 'mass creativity' and 'co-creation' appear to be contagious buzzwords that are rapidly infecting economic and cultural discourse on Web 2.0. Allegedly, peer production models will replace opaque, top-down business models, yielding to transparent, democratic structures where power is in the shared hands of responsible companies and skilled, qualified users. Manifestos such as Wikinomics(Tapscott and Williams, 2006) and 'We-Think' (Leadbeater, 2007) argue collective culture to be the basis for digital commerce. This article analyzes the assumptions behind this Web 2.0 newspeak and unravels how business gurus try to argue the universal benefits of a democratized and collectivist digital space. They implicitly endorse a notion of public collectivism that functions entirely inside commodity culture. The logic of Wikinomics and 'We-Think' urgently begs for deconstruction, especially since it is increasingly steering mainstream cultural theory on digital culture.
