Five Basic Misconceptions About The Copyright Monopoly And Sharing Of Culture - Rick Falkvinge on Infopolicy
"Five erroneous assertions have kept appearing in the public debate since 1990 about file-sharing vs. the copyright monopoly. These assertions have persisted for 25 years, despite being obviously false. This is a reference article to link to and point at whenever one of them pops up the next time." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

Serviço de música #Spotify chega a #Portugal - João Pedro Pereira (PÚBLICO)
"Esta terça-feira, o popular serviço de música Spotify passará a estar disponível para utilizadores em Portugal. O serviço permite ouvir música em streaming, através de um pagamento mensal, ou numa modalidade gratuita, que inclui anúncios publicitários. As assinaturas podem ser de 3,49 euros mensais, para ouvir apenas em streaming, ou de 6,99 euros por mês, para quem também queira descarregar os ficheiros. A empresa, que tem sede no Reino Unido, nasceu na Suécia e estava já presente em muitos países europeus, bem como nos EUA, Austrália e Nova Zelândia. As operações em Portugal são geridas a partir da subsidiária espanhola e já tinha sido noticiado que o serviço estaria disponível a partir deste mês." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

Aberto até de Madrugada: Spotify já Disponível em Portugal
"Fica assim explicado porque motivo na semana passada o serviço nacional Music Box da PT baixou a mensalidade de 9.99€ para... adivinhem só.. 6.99€! Isto é que são coincidências, não? Claro que a parte do tráfego mobile não ser contabilizado no caso do Music Box (para os clientes TMN) será um factor decisivo caso pretendam fazer streaming nos smartphones ou tablets... mas isso é uma questão que também deveria levantar preocupações na Anacom, pois seria bem mais saudável que não se fizesse diferenciação de tráfego... pois senão estaremos perante uma situação de concorrência desleal - já que nenhum outro serviço de streaming poderá competir com um no qual o tráfego não conte." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

World Maps of Language Families « Cartography « GeoCurrents
Show all
"For teaching a class on the history and geography of the world’s major language families, good linguistic maps are essential. Unfortunately, serviceable maps that depict only language families are difficult to find. Most images available online show a combination of families and sub-families, splitting Indo-European, for example, into its main divisions. Such a portrayal is of little use for demonstrating the significance of the Indo-European family, which encompasses languages spoken by almost half the people of the world." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"The best map of language families per se that I have found is a Wikipedia product, found here and posted above. I do have a few quibbles with the map. It portrays “Caucasian,” for example, as a single family, whereas in actuality at least three languages families are found in the Caucasus Mountains and nowhere else. Like most other family-level linguistic maps, it exaggerates the... more... - Maitani
"But as good as it may be, this map is of limited utility in the classroom. When I lecture on a specific language family, I want it to stand out on the map, rather than hide among a dozen other pastel-colored groupings. I have therefore used this map as a model for creating a series of family-specific depictions. A few of these are posted here, and the others will appear over the next... more... - Maitani

CIRCULATIONS OF CULTURE. On Social Distribution of Content - http://obiegikultury.centrumcyfrowe.pl/en...
CIRCULATIONS OF CULTURE. On Social Distribution of Content
"The “pirate” category, formerly used to describe those selling unauthorized copies of content, is misleading when it comes to analyzing content sharing on the Internet. Most of all, however the category itself hampers any dialogue related to attempts at regulating that sphere. Of course, the issue of potential law-breaking on the part of the respondents must be mentioned due to the potential impact on the results of our research. We assume that due to the social stigma of illegal downloads our respondents might hide the fact that they engage in such practices. It is worth pointing out that the results presented in this report are likely conservative estimates of the size of that sphere. While it is hard to believe that someone without access to file-sharing networks would claim to use them, the reverse situation is also possible. Though this reasoning can be reversed, our research demonstrates that a large part of Poles are willing to admit that they participate in informal... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

SPA: “salta” Gov: “quão alto?” » FU-BAR - http://blog.1407.org/2013...
"O Governo prepara-se para lançar medidas extremas contra os cidadãos sob o pretexto de ter que fazer alguma coisa para proteger a indústria dos extremistas do Copyright, e o recente momento de comédia circense lançado pela SPA, logo acalmado por uma resposta a seu gosto pelo Governo, não passou de um fait divers para distrair do facto que estes têm sempre operado em conluio, no mínimo nos últimos anos, sendo que certamente apenas o receio da resposta da verdadeira Sociedade Civil tem refreado medidas mais extremas desde então." - Marcos Marado from Bookmarklet

#OpenSource: #GitHub Has Big Dreams for Open-Source Software, and More - Quentin Hardy (NYTimes) - http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012...
"As complex as an open-source project may be, it is also based on a single, well-defined outcome, and an engineering task that is generally free of concepts like fairness and justice, about which people can debate endlessly. Even on a less lofty plane, companies like GitHub and Asana will ultimately test themselves against complex corporate processes lasting years, and involving skills in both science and the humanities. Google once prided itself on few managers and fast action, but has found that getting big can also involve lots more meetings. Still, these fast-rising successes may be on to something more than simply universalizing the means of their own good fortune. An early guru of the Information Age, Peter Drucker, wrote often in the latter part of his career of the need for managers to define tasks, and for workers to seek fulfillment before profits." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#eBooks #Publishing: The #music industry dropped #DRM years ago. So why does it persist on e-books? - Cyrus Farivar (Ars Technica)
"One of the major elements that drove the death of DRM was the ability to put music tracks in any format, in any device. Similarly, some speculate that it will take more time for enough e-book owners who want to share their favorite reads and be frustrated at that experience. Currently, Amazon only allows lending of e-books of certain titles, and that can only be done once. The Barnes & Noble Nook has a similar lending policy—iBooks is even worse, as it doesn't have a lending feature to speak of." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

O fim do ciclo de redução das desigualdades económicas em Portugal. Entrevista a Carlos Farinha Rodrigues (Observatório das Desigualdades)
"O que acontece em Portugal, e o estudo analisa isso com bastante detalhe, é que o conjunto da intervenção do Estado quer através do sistema fiscal quer através das prestações sociais tem um claro efeito equalizador. Se nós olharmos para o IRS, nomeadamente para os dados de 2009 que nós analisámos, conclui-se que quando se passa do rendimento bruto para o rendimento líquido existe uma diminuição de 11 pontos percentuais do índice de Gini. Não há dúvidas nenhumas que a intervenção do Estado tem um papel redistributivo, só que esse papel redistributivo é menor, é menos eficaz do que na maior parte dos países da União Europeia. Por outro lado, e esta é uma conclusão muito importante do estudo, nós não temos tido em Portugal políticas efectivas de combate às desigualdades. Nos últimos anos são raras as políticas que tenham sido concebidas e aplicadas para reduzir as desigualdades. Há como que um alheamento político face a este problema. O que aconteceu em Portugal, e que é muito... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#OpenGovernment: Towards a public digital infrastructure: why do governments have a responsibility to go open? - Guillermo Moncecchi (Open Knowledge Foundation Blog) #OpenData
"When you see open data in this light, several decisions become easier. Should we ask people for identification to give them our data? Answer: do you ask them for an identification to use the street? No, you don’t – then no, you shouldn’t. Why should we use open, non proprietary standards for publishing data? For the same reason you do not build a street where only certain car brands can pass. What happens if there are problems with my data, which causes problems for the users? Well, you will be liable, if the law decides that … but, would you avoid demands for accidents caused by pavement problems by not building streets? Of course you are responsible for your data: you are paid to create it, as you are paid for building bridges. Every question about open data we can imagine has already been answered for traditional infrastructure." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

"Music industry group the BPI is sending its lawyers after the UK Pirate Party after they refused to take their Pirate Bay proxy offline. Last week the BPI kindly asked the Pirates to shut down the website, but quickly turned to threats when they didn’t get their way. Pirate Party leader Loz Kaye tells TorrentFreak that they are determined to stand behind their principles, even if that means getting involved in an expensive legal battle." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

Parliament 2012: How to hack the House of Commons without anyone even trying to stop you - Steve Anderson (The Independent) #Hackathon #UK
"It may, then, seem a little strange, if not entirely irresponsible, for Parliament to unleash a trough of its own data to a bunch of coding wizards and ask them to hack away at it over a weekend. After all, if there were another gunpowder plot today, you can bet it would come wearing an Anonymous badge, use virtual gunpowder and blow up the information structures and data sets that keep Parliament running daily, rather than the bricks and mortar of the Houses themselves. But this isn’t real hacking. Or, rather, it is real hacking, I’m told, by Emma Mulqueeny, the chief executive and founder of Rewired State, the organisation behind Parliament Hack 2012, a two-day “hackathon” that brings  developers and designers together to exploit parliamentary data, creating websites, apps and games in order to create a better understanding of the parliamentary system." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet
