Antidisciplinary - Joi Ito's Web. One of the first words that I learned when I joined the Media Lab was "antidisciplinary. " It was listed an a requirement in an ad seeking applicants for a new faculty position. Interdisciplinary work is when people from different disciplines work together. An antidisciplinary project isn't a sum of a bunch of disciplines but something entirely new - the word defies easy definition. But what it means to me is someone or something that doesn't fit within traditional academic discipline­­­-a field of study with its own particular words, frameworks, and methods. The Media Lab focuses on "uniqueness, impact and magic. " The kind of scholars we are looking for at the Media Lab are people who don't fit in any existing discipline either because they are between--or simply beyond--disciplines.

When I think about the "space" that we've created, I like to think about a huge piece of paper that represents "all science. " Building a Civic Tech Sector to Last — Positive Returns. Building a Civic Tech Sector to Last Design Principles to Generate a Civic Tech Movement Over the last few years we have seen growing recognition of the potential of “civic tech,” or the use of technology that “empowers citizens to make government more accessible, efficient and effective (definition provided in “Engines of Change”)”. One commentator recently described “civic tech as the next big thing.”

At the same time, we are yet to witness a true tech-enabled transformation of how government works and how citizens engage with institutions and with each other to solve societal problems. In many ways, civic tech still operates under the radar screen and often lacks broad acceptance. So how do we accelerate and expand the civic tech sector? The “Engines of Change” report written for Omidyar Network by Purpose seeks to provide an answer to these questions in the context of the United States. Given the new insights gained from the report, how to move forward? Civic Graph. Disobedience VS Transgression – Salvatore Iaconesi – Medium. A few days ago, the Disobedience Award was launched by MIT’s Media Lab. The prize will collect people’s submissions about exemplary acts of civil disobedience which have brought benefit to society by supporting the principles of non-violence, creativity, courage and responsibility, and will award 250 thousand dollars to the one which is deemed to be the most significant, according to the opinion of a jury.

It is only apparently peculiar for an institution such as MIT to deal with the topic of Disobedience. If we look closely, we will find many hints of why MIT would deal with such a theme. In this sense, Joichi “Joi” Ito’s approach is exemplary. Joi Ito is the director of the MIT Media Lab, and has been the Chairman of Creative Commons and a serial entrepreneur and activist who has been part of some of the Web’s most interesting operations. Joi Ito is not new to the theme.

In 2016 this approach has led to the creation of JoDS, the Journal of Design and Sciences. Let’s analyze it. To Obey.

Journal of Design and Science. La tecnología si importa … o sobre Slack y la cultura de equipo | Juan Freire. Slack es una herramienta aparentemente simple: un sistema de chat pensado para equipos que permite múltiples canales, compartir documentos y conectarse con otras aplicaciones. Pero a la vez es la startup más excitante para los insiders de Silicon Valley según esta encuesta de The Atlantic, e incluso se especula con que podría acabar matando a Facebook (aunque también es cierto que The Atlantic, una revista que no se ocupa especialmente por la tecnología, parece haber encontrado en Slack su tema techie favorito). Hace unos días Nature explicaba como usan Slack los científicos prestando especial atención a un equipo de genetistas que han dejado prácticamente de usar el correo electrónico para intercambiar unos 500 mensajes en Slack por día … con un aumento drástico en la eficiencia de la comunicación.
