Everybody Knows This Isn’t Nowhere: Designing for Non-Places - Blog of FUSE Labs at Microsoft Research

Everybody Knows This Isn’t Nowhere: Designing for Non-Places - Blog of FUSE Labs at Microsoft Research | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
Everybody Knows This Isn't Nowhere: Designing for Non-Places This summer at FUSE, we’ve been thinking about the “non-places” that people spend much of their lives at every day. While this term might...
BeerBergman's insight:

Wow, interesting! A must read. Excerpts.

***

"One concern with non-places and the increasing role they play in our lives, is that they are without character, and promote feelings of detachment. Despite the large number of people constantly passing through non-places, they lack a sense of community. We’re starting to investigate what role social computing systems might play in addressing some of the shortcomings of non-places.

***

This app will help us investigate how to design systems to cultivate communities for non-places. Over the summer we’re looking to explore questions of anonymity, identity, and engagement. How do we design social computing systems that allow people to connect, but are respectful of the delicate social balance of non-places?"

David Riesman and the Lonely Crowd of Social Media

What can a more-than-60-year-old book tell us about Twitter and Facebook?
BeerBergman's insight:

An absolutely must-read. Excerpt. And don't forget to order the original book :-).

"AS RIESMAN STATES IN The Lonely Crowd, modes of conformity have always existed, and there's nothing inherently wrong with their existence. Kings have employed soldiers and parents have revoked desserts to ensure that their underlings stay in line. But young people today have tools of expression unimaginable to people a century ago. The power and responsibility held by practically anyone with an Internet connection can often be great.

What Riesman did argue for was autonomy. He urged individuals to find "the nerve to be oneself when that self is not approved of by the dominant ethic of a society." In the final pages of The Lonely Crowd, Riesman describes "the autonomous" as "those who on the whole are capable of conforming to the behavioral norms of their society … but are free to choose whether to conform or not.""
