El artista Nick Briz nos cuenta por qué deberíamos dejar Facebook y cómo deberíamos hacerlo

El año pasado, The Creators Project hizo un documental con el artista de nuevos medios sobre cómo crear animaciones interactivas y generativas, y previamente habíamos escrito sobre su programa theNewAesthetic.js, un software de fácil uso para hacer composiciones de la Nueva Estética. Nick Briz es un artista de nuevos medios, profesor y organizador de Chicago. Briz da clases en la Fundación Marwen y en el Instituto de Arte de Chicago, ha presentado su trabajo por todo el mundo y es cofundador de las conferencias GLI.TC/H. Aunque por todo esto ya debería ser sin duda digno de admiración, debo decir que supe que Briz era un genio cuando vi “Apple Computers”, una efectiva afrenta contra Apple y un manifiesto para el consumidor de nuestros tiempos. Así que cuando Briz creó “How to/Why Leave Facebook” sobre cómo salir de Facebook, supe que no debía dejarlo pasar por alto.

Dotcom's Internet Party Wants to Abolish "Geo Blocking" Restrictions. Kim Dotcom's Internet Party has proposed drastic changes to New Zealand's "outdated" copyright law.

Dotcom's Internet Party Wants to Abolish "Geo Blocking" Restrictions

One of the key proposals is to legalize the circumvention of geo-blocking restrictions, so that Hollywood has an incentive to release content globally. In addition, the party also wants to get rid of Internet disconnections under the three-strikes law. Last January, exactly two years after the Megaupload raid, Kim Dotcom entered New Zealand’s political arena with the launch of his Internet Party. The party is currently preparing for the general election in September. While Dotcom will not be on the voting ballot himself, he remains one of the main influencers of the party’s policy.

As the name suggests, many of the party’s core issues revolve around the Internet, copyright included. One of the key issues the Internet Party wants to change is the liability New Zealanders face for using VPN services and other circumvention tools to access legal content. Hulu’s Geo Blocking.

Economics and the Commons Conference [knowledge stream] report – Mike Linksvayer

A report on an international conference on the future of the commons (pdf) by David Bollier. Section on the knowledge stream (which I coordinated; pre-conference post) copied below, followed by an addendum with thanks and vague promises. First, video of the stream keynote (slides) by Carolina Botero (introduced by me; archive.org copy). III. “Treating Knowledge, Culture and Science as Commons” Science, and recently, free software, are paradigmatic knowledge commons; copyright and patent paradigmatic enclosures. Copyright and patent are not the first knowledge enclosures, but only “modern” enforcement of inequalities in what may be known and communicated?

These were the general questions that the Knowledge, Culture and Science Stream addressed. Maaaaaster. What’s Interesting About Creative Communities? — Alternative Infrastructures. I had the strange experience of finding myself defending Beliebers over the weekend.

What’s Interesting About Creative Communities? — Alternative Infrastructures

Not something that happens to me ordinarily, I have to say. But in explaining what Beliebers were about, I knew I had to adopt a position of trying to understand why they exist, and what motivates them. The pressing question to me was, “why are Beliebers interesting at all?” And I believe (no pun intended here) that the answer goes beyond just the stated object of their affection. Just as with Beliebers, we’re often inclined to dismiss many of these transnational communities as byproducts of late capitalism, or from a much more judgemental point of view, to evaluate them from the perspective of cultural industries as mass deception. When examining the work of creative communities, it can be easy to dismiss this work from the point of view of products. So sure, from the point of view of outputs, Beliebers are incredibly uninteresting. In Tufekci’s view, however, this is precisely the wrong approach.
