About Aphelis.net ☛ About This website is a research blog about the loose ends of the ideals of community. It also acts as an archive of items related to communication, technology and art. It provides adequate source attribution for each and every one of its entries. “Ideals of community” refer to the various beliefs either that human beings once have live together harmoniously (nostalgia for a lost community) or that it is their upcoming destiny (hope in the coming community). The need to research the “loose ends” of those ideals stems from the experience of actual conditions of coexistence. In order to be able to think through this deadlock, ideals of community must be turned upside down. Aphelis is maintained by Philippe Theophanidis. ☛ Adequate source attribution The attribution method I’m using is quite simple. I don’t think of this structure as a model everyone should adopt. ☛ Technical aspects This site was hand-coded using Coda, Text Wrangler and Transmit. ☛ Credits ☛ Rights

Valmiina valloitukseen - Hitlantis tuo yhtyeet maailmankartalle ”Täällä ne pörrää”, sanoo Hitlantis-musiikkipalvelun toimitusjohtaja Marcus Tilgmann. iPad-taulutietokoneen ruudulla lentää käyttäjiä kuin mehiläisiä, artistipallosta toiseen. Suosittujen ympärille muodostuu kuhinaa. Pallot kasvavat ja siirtyvät kohti kolmiulotteisen maailman keskustaa. ”Käyttäjäpallojen myötä palvelusta tulee aidosti sosiaalinen”, kertoo Suomen yhteisövastaava, Wallu Valpio. ”Facebookissa tiedät mitä kaverisi tekevät, mutta et näe missä loput 500 miljoonaa liikkuvat.” Uusi versio lanseerataan alkuvuodesta. Markkinoita ainakin riittää: yhteisön ensisijainen kohderyhmä ovat aloittelevat artistit, jotka haluavat saada musiikkiaan esille. ”Itseäni kiehtoo erityisesti Aasia”, sanoo Tilgmann. ”Siellä ihmiset ovat todella verkottuneita.” Lumipalloefektiä lähdetään luomaan Ruotsista, joka on maailman viidenneksi suurin musiikin vientimaa. iPhone-sovelluksen myötä avainasemassa ovat mobiilioperaattorit, ja sosiaalinen media. ”Se joko ottaa siivet alleen tai sitten ei.

the founding story — 100CAMERAS. 100cameras was co-founded by four women in 2008 on the premise that a child sees the world differently than adults.They believed a child could take a camera into their own community and capture stories of the world around them in ways an older or outside photographer could not. And they were confident these stories could change lives, both within the community and around the world. In late 2008, the concept was first tested when one of the friends went to South Sudan and gave cameras to kids at an orphanage. The photos that returned were remarkable. In a hard place that most would call hopeless, these images told a different story: one full of life, hope, and joy. Our four friends wanted to share the stories of these kids with their friends. With the success of these events and encouragement from family and friends, 100cameras officially incorporated in Spring 2009. Four years, 36 students and $36,000 later, the 100cameras team has proven their concepts works.

Gittip : Plateforme de micro-don pensée comme la (presque) première entreprise ouverte A propos du projet Éditer Gittip est un système de micro-don régulier (par semaine) auprès de personnes et de projets. De par sa facilité d'usage et la possibilité de donner dès que l'on possède un compte twitter ou github, cet outil permet de rapidement initier un financement participatif. La description du profil permet de spécifier nos actions pour "améliorer le monde" et l'objectif de financement visé. Lancé il y a un peu plus d'un an, le site permet déjà à des personnes de ne vivre que de ça avec des financements autour de 2000$ par mois pour certains.En novembre 2013, Ashe Dryden ( reçoit par exemple 350$ par semaine et s'implique dans l'animation et l'écriture autour des sujets de diversité en entreprise. Mais Gittip n'est pas seulement une plateforme libre de don. En quoi ce projet est-il singulier et créatif ? Ce projet est créatif sur de nombreux aspects. Les autres aspects innovants sont expliqués ci dessous : - Une logique durable.

Rdio Raises $17.5 Million in Cash Money ... But Why? Social media music service Rdio recently landed $17.5 million in funding from Mangrove Capital Partners and Zennstrom's fund Atomico, as well as adding Warner Bros Records Chairman Rob Cavallo to their board. As interesting as a big number like $17.5 million sounds, you have to ask -- is this for major Rdio expansion, or just investment because Rdio can't cover their operating costs? Investment rounds happen largely because of one or the other, and the reasons leading up to each are wholly different in the vitality of a company. It's worth asking why Rdio doesn't have the capacity to cover the expansion themselves, and finds it necessary to raise cash money from the venture capitalist scene. “We are changing the way we find and listen to music. Rdio was developed by the creators of Kazaa and Skype, which are Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström. Rdio runs at a cost of $9.99 for mobile and Web access, while Web access only will cost $4.99 per month.
