Vamos publicar conteúdo aberto - Reinaldo Ferraz (W3C Escritório Brasil)
"A Web vai mudar muito nos próximos 80 anos e por isso mesmo temos que lutar para que ela continue aberta. Publicar conteúdos em formato livre, que seja possível de ser localizado não só por ferramentas de busca, mas por pessoas nos mais diversos dispositivos. Temos que considerar que as tecnologias vão evoluir, mas o material que eu publiquei em formato aberto há anos não será perdido por causa de uma tecnologia que foi descontinuada." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#Porn filters? 'Move to North Korea and be done with it,' blasts #UK ISP - Chris Smith (TechRadar) #Censorship
"British Internet Service Provider Andrews & Arnold Ltd has told potential customers to 'move to North Korea' or pick a different ISP if they want online content to be filtered by the government. The company said it will reject David Cameron's plans to require internet users to actively opt-in if they wish to view adult content over their home broadband connection." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

Feds put heat on Web firms for master encryption keys - Declan McCullagh (CNET News) - http://news.cnet.com/8301-13...
Feds put heat on Web firms for master encryption keys - Declan McCullagh (CNET News)
"The U.S. government has attempted to obtain the master encryption keys that Internet companies use to shield millions of users' private Web communications from eavesdropping. These demands for master encryption keys, which have not been disclosed previously, represent a technological escalation in the clandestine methods that the FBI and the National Security Agency employ when conducting electronic surveillance against Internet users. If the government obtains a company's master encryption key, agents could decrypt the contents of communications intercepted through a wiretap or by invoking the potent surveillance authorities of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Web encryption -- which often appears in a browser with a HTTPS lock icon when enabled -- uses a technique called SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

Internet Archives & Documentary Analysis by James Allen-Robertson :: SSRN
"Abstract: This paper presents the method used to write a detailed history of the digital distribution of media. Working from a timeframe of a decade of internet time, the research sought to understand and describe the individuals, structures and events that brought about a fundamental shift in the way media is distributed and sold today. The research required the development of documentary analysis to draw upon the internet as an archive of archives, tracing the histories across a wide variety of unconventional sources. This flexible method of documentary analysis allowed for the production of a highly detailed intricate history of digital distribution. However this method also illuminated the challenges that utilizing internet based information brings to historiography and wider research practices. Traditionally relied upon concepts of authority, authenticity, validity and proof are undermined by the volatile nature of the internet document and bring challenges to the historian that... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#P2P #FileSharing #Cinema: Online Freedom? Film Consumption in the Digital Age - Luane Sandrin Gauer (MSc Media and Communications, LSE) http://www.lse.ac.uk/media@l...
"This study finds support for the view that unpaid forms of film consumption do not necessarily displace paid consumption forms, i.e. they do not always act as a substitute. It questions strict copyright enforcement policies by investigating possible associations between the frequency of film consumption online for free, legal concerns and the willingness to pay to watch films online. A set of hypotheses regarding film consumption in the cinema, on DVD and online for free were tested using Chi Square tests. The data was gathered from 307 Higher Education students from 19 London universities, who self-selected into an online survey. In order to make sure that not only people interested in the survey topic completed the questionnaire, an incentive – in the form of a prize draw – was offered to respondents. The study finds that film consumption online for free differs from consumption in the cinema and on DVD in its motivations, as well as its levels of spontaneity, discontinuation and... more... - Miguel Caetano

#Music #Marketing #Digital: Letter From The Editor: What Jay-Z's 'Magna Carta' Means For The Billboard 200 Chart - Bill Werde (Billboard) [June 21, 2013] - http://www.billboard.com/biz...
#Music #Marketing #Digital: Letter From The Editor: What Jay-Z's 'Magna Carta' Means For The Billboard 200 Chart - Bill Werde (Billboard) [June 21, 2013]
""I don't follow any guidelines," Jay-Z says in "22 Twos," one of the standout tracks on his 1996 debut, "Reasonable Doubt." And there's no reasonable doubt that Jay's instincts to blaze trails have served him well. In particular, Jay has been one of the leaders of the revolution that has been unfolding for years between music and brands. Jay's deals -- from his hands and distinct voice telling the world about HP computers to his getting Budweiser to pay for a party in Philadelphia for 80,000 of his closest (and paying) friends -- haven't just put a lot of coin in Jay's Roc-a-Wear jeans pockets. They've helped build Jay's brand and paved a path for the business and brands to think even bigger about partnerships." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

Peter Suber on the state of Open Access: Where are we, what still needs to be done? - Richard Poynder (Open and Shut?) #OA #OpenAccess
"I’m disappointed by the cancerous growth of scam or predatory OA journals, by the assumption in some quarters that all or most OA journals are predatory, and by the spectacle of predatory OA getting more press attention than honest OA. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised. Outside the subculture of sports fans, dishonest athletes get more attention than honest athletes. But at least we can say plainly that this kind of coverage is unfair to the honest majority, and we can’t excuse the unfairness on the ground that the distinction between honest and dishonest athletes — or honest and dishonest bankers, politicians, and journalists — is somehow difficult to grasp." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

7 Myths of the Digital Divide - Jen Schradie (Cyborgology) #DigitalDivide [April 26, 2013]
"Simply, there are people who are not consistently online creating content whenever they want. The digital elite Twitter-sphere often forgets this. Huh, you say? Isn’t it classist to assume that production somehow privileges consumption? Cyborgology blogger Nathan Jurgenson makes this type of argument. By pointing out these inequalities, I am not arguing that one is better than the other. Instead, whose voices are heard in the digital public forum matters – online content is critical for journalists and policy makers. But why am I even using the term “divide” myself, then, if there is not one type of gap? Especially when it’s too retro to say it’s an either/or binary divide? Jurgenson contends that offline versus online differentiation is “digital dualist.” Certainly, as PJ Rey pointed out, those not online are still affected by the digital. Dualism is very real for those without regular access to online spaces. While inequalities is an apt description for a range of skills,... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#Facebook Is Being Redefined by Its Developing World Users - Tom Simonite (MIT Technology Review) - http://www.technologyreview.com/view...
"Millions of people in developing markets like India, Indonesia, and the Philippines are relying on this technology to connect with Facebook, without having to purchase a smartphone,” says the official announcement, which says that the basic mobile app can be run on phones that cost as little as $20. Little research has been done on Facebook’s growth in developing countries (and a lot would be needed to capture even some of the diversity included under the blanket term “developing world”). Two small, recent studies of Kenyan Facebook users in poor areas by Susan Wyche of Michigan State University are among the first to be published, and they provide some interesting insights." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

New Publication: "Social Mobilization and the Networked Public Sphere: Mapping the SOPA-PIPA Debate" | Berkman Center
"The Berkman Center for Internet & Society is pleased to announce the release of a new publication from the Media Cloud project, Social Mobilization and the Networked Public Sphere: Mapping the SOPA-PIPA Debate, authored by Yochai Benkler, Hal Roberts, Rob Faris, Alicia Solow-Niederman, and Bruce Etling.  In this paper, we use a new set of online research tools to develop a detailed study of the public debate over proposed legislation in the United States that was designed to give prosecutors and copyright holders new tools to pursue suspected online copyright violations. Our study applies a mixed-methods approach by combining text and link analysis with human coding and informal interviews to map the evolution of the controversy over time and to analyze the mobilization, roles, and interactions of various actors." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

"O Facebook parece estar no caminho para resolver o que tem sido uma fonte de preocupação para investidores. Na apresentação trimestral de resultados, na quarta-feira ao final do dia, comunicou que 41% das receitas publicitárias são obtidas em dispositivos móveis. Ao todo, o Facebook fez cerca de 1600 milhões de dólares (1200 milhões de euros) com anúncios, o que representa 88% das receitas. O restante é conseguido essencialmente com as taxas cobradas pelo processamento de pagamentos para empresas que distribuem jogos dentro do Facebook e nos quais os jogadores podem fazer compras.

Adventures of a Gringa: Brazil's Mídia Ninja and the Rise of Citizen Journalism - Rachel #Brasil #Ninja #jornalismo #MidiaNinja
"One of the most interesting elements of Brazil's protests, which continue to simmer across the country in smaller numbers, is the use of new media to plan, broadcast, and report on the demonstrations. Mídia Ninja is perhaps the best known group to emerge, and has used social media and webcasting as tools to cover the protests. Given its role, Mídia Ninja could have simply been evidence of a rise in citizen journalism, but it has also gained a role as a protagonist in the protests. On July 22, during a Rio protest on day one of the Pope's visit to Brazil, two Mídia Ninja reporters were arrested (and subsequently released) after police claimed they were trying to "incite violence" by broadcasting the event. A total of seven people were arrested, and one of the protesters was initially denied bail. He spoke to ninja reporters with the hope that someone would find a video to prove his innocence and through social media, Mídia Ninja advocated for his release. The coverage worked, and he... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

The Internet, deliberative democracy, and power: Radicalizing the public sphere | Lincoln Dahlberg - Academia.edu - http://www.academia.edu/1412440...
"Deliberative democratic public sphere theory has become increasingly popular inInternet-democracy research and commentary. In terms of informal civic prac-tices, advocates of this theory see the Internet as a means for the expansion of citizen deliberation leading to the formation of rational public opinion throughwhich official decision makers can be held accountable. In this paper I questionthis public sphere conception as a democratic norm of Internet practice given thatthere have been sustained critiques of the deliberative conception for failing toaccount fully for power, and thus for supporting status quo social and politicalsystems. I examine these claims and argue that while the deliberative conceptionactually pays more attention to power than some critics argue, it fails to ade-quately theorize the power relations involved in defining what counts as legiti-mate deliberation. Drawing upon post-Marxist discourse theory, I highlight twointer-related factors that are largely... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

How Bottom-up Broadband will overcome the ‘last mile’ problem - Sepp Hasslberger (P2P Foundation) - http://blog.p2pfoundation.net/how-bot...
"Jaume Barcelo is a Spanish post-doctoral researcher who co-founded the bottom-up broadband project in Barcelona. He works on spreading the concept of user-owned bottom-up networks that will eventually overcome the bottleneck of the “last mile”, an economic hurdle that has kept telecom operators from providing decent internet access to many potential users. Telecom operators cite the “last mile” as a problem, because according to the logic of the current business model it is not profitable to connect people if there aren’t enough of them living within a certain radius, roughly a mile, of a broadband distribution point. Jaume, wrote a paper describing the philosophy behind bottom-up networks and giving examples of some such networks that already exist. The paper promotes the concept and gives some examples, rather than providing a complete listing of current initiatives, showing how eventually the telecoms’ last mile may be taken out of the equation, as there is an already connected... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

"Desde que foi criado em 1970, o International Standard Book Number, tem sido reconhecido internacionalmente, como sistema de identificação, quer ao nível do sector editorial, quer ao nível do comércio de livros. O ISBN acompanha uma publicação de cariz monográfico, desde o momento da produção e ao longo de todo o processo de distribuição. Em 1988, a APEL torna-se a responsável pela introdução do sistema em Portugal e pela sua gestão, atribuindo aos editores os seus prefixos, bem como os números para as suas publicações. Já profundamente enraizado no processo editorial, o sistema de ISBN, tem cada vez mais editores registados e o número de publicações com este identificador tem vindo a aumentar consideravelmente. O quadro abaixo reflecte os números atribuídos nos últimos cinco anos." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

"As the world grapples with revelations about the NSA spying scandals—which PEN fought for three years in the courts—we have also seen renewed interest in the role literature can play in understanding surveillance. Does George Orwell's 1984 really hold all the answers? Or are there other works that have more to offer? We connected with David Rosen and Aaron Santesso, authors of a sweeping new review of literature and surveillance entitled The Watchman in Pieces: Surveillance, Literature, and Liberal Personhood (Yale University Press) to find out more." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

CfP: Philosophers of the World Unite! Theorizing Digital Labour and Virtual Work: Definitions, Forms and Transformations
CfP: Philosophers of the World Unite! Theorizing Digital Labour and Virtual Work: Definitions, Forms and Transformations
"In 1845, Karl Marx (1845, 571) formulated in the 11th Feuerbach Thesis: “The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it”. Today, interpretation of the world has become an important form of labour that is expressed on and with the help of digital media. It has therefore become common to talk about digital labour and virtual work. Yet the changes that digital, social and mobile media bring about in the world of labour and work have thus far only been little theorized and theoretically interpreted. In order to change the information society to the better, we first have to interpret digital labour with the help of critical theories. Theorists of the world from different fields, backgrounds, interdisciplines, transdisciplines and disciplines have to unite for this collective philosophical task. The overall task of this special issue of tripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique is to gather contributions that help to an understanding of how... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

The new report released Thursday by Citizen Lab, based at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, finds that Pakistan is actively filtering content, with Netsweeper filtering devices actively used to censor content on an ISP-wide level in Pakistan. The Canadian company has supplied its filtering products to the Pakistan Telecommunication Company, which is Pakistan’s largest telecommunications company and also operates the Pakistan Internet Exchange Point.
