The Local-global Flip, Or, "the Lanier Effect" Here's a sampling: ... "The Apple idea is that instead of the personal computer model where people own their own information, and everybody can be a creator as well as a consumer, we're moving towards this iPad, iPhone model where it's not as adequate for media creation as the real media creation tools, and even though you can become a seller over the network, you have to pass through Apple's gate to accept what you do, and your chances of doing well are very small, and it's not a person to person thing, it's a business through a hub, through Apple to others, and it doesn't create a middle class, it creates a new kind of upper class. ... Google has done something that might even be more destructive of the middle class, which is they've said, "Well, since Moore's law makes computation really cheap, let's just give away the computation, but keep the data." ... ... ... ... ... ...if you're adding to the network, do you expect anything back from it?

SOCIAL FACTORS SHAPING PERCEPTION AND DECISION-MAKING Elsewhere we examined several great tensions shaping the human condition: the role of nature versus nurture in shaping humans' social fates and the tensions between the needs of individuals' and the needs of their social systems. The relative importance of these tensions--and relative potency of one force versus the other--has produced great divides in social psychological theories. Another issue generating a major schism involves the workings of the human psyche, whether individuals' decision-makings are more-or-less rational (or, perhaps are determined by some universally uniform neural brain design) or whether they are shaped by uncontrollable sociocultural (external) or emotional (internal) forces. Here, the intent is to stress the socio-cultural component of consciousness and thought. The idea that "true" reality is never truly graspable by humans' sensory and cognitive equipment goes back at least to the works of Plato. Consider the social construction of sensory distinctions.

In Libro Veritas New Creative Commons License Chooser Creative Commons is proud to announce the launch of our new license chooser tool. The license chooser has been completely redesigned for greater clarity and ease of use. While the original license chooser was successful at simplifying the act of selecting a license and applying it to one’s work, its linear workflow resembled a registration process. Furthermore, as the tool had been extended numerous times, its interface became more and more cluttered. While the redesign is a total user interface overhaul, feature-wise there isn’t anything new that wasn’t already somewhere in the license engine. From left to right: The original chooser’s selection page, the previous chooser’s results page, and the recently redesigned interactive license chooser.CC BY First and foremost, the license chooser is not a registration tool. The license chooser does not generate licenses. Our license deed pages already contained information about whether the license was a Free Culture license or not.

Le partage est légitime Le partage de fichiers représentant des oeuvres couvertes par le droit d’auteur entre individus sans but de profit a été rendu illégal au cours des 30 dernières années dans la plupart des pays et dans la plupart des cas. Cela ne m’empêche d’affirmer haut et fort que l’acte de prendre une oeuvre numérique qu’on a acquis et de la copier, la rendre accessible à d’autres ou leur envoyer est non seulement légitime, mais une contribution essentielle à l’établissement d’une culture commune. Je propose de défendre cette position en suivant les points suivants: montrer l’utilité du partage (délimité comme ci-dessus) et sa légitimité même sans autorisation des auteurs, montrer que lorsqu’on l’interdit, les pratiques culturelles appauvrissantes chassent les pratiques enrichissantes, et finalement affirmer que la prohibition du partage sera un jour vue comme un étonnant obscurantisme. 1. Le partage est utile et légitime même lorsqu’il concerne des œuvres dont on n’est pas l’auteur 2. 3.
