The Cult of the Amateur

Digital utopians have heralded the dawn of an era in which Web 2.0 — distinguished by a new generation of participatory sites like and, which emphasize user-generated content, social networking and interactive sharing — ushers in the democratization of the world: more information, more perspectives, more opinions, more everything, and most of it without filters or fees. Yet as the Silicon Valley entrepreneur Andrew Keen points out in his provocative new book, “The Cult of the Amateur,” Web 2.0 has a dark side as well.

Texts Without Context

In his deliberately provocative — and deeply nihilistic — new book, “Reality Hunger,” the onetime novelist David Shields asserts that fiction “has never seemed less central to the culture’s sense of itself.” He says he’s “bored by out-and-out fabrication, by myself and others; bored by invented plots and invented characters” and much more interested in confession and “reality-based art.” His own book can be taken as Exhibit A in what he calls “recombinant” or appropriation art.

Mr. Shields’s book consists of 618 fragments, including hundreds of quotations taken from other writers like Philip Roth, Joan Didion and Saul Bellow — quotations that Mr. Shields, 53, has taken out of context and in some cases, he says, “also revised, at least a little — for the sake of compression, consistency or whim.” He only acknowledges the source of these quotations in an appendix, which he says his publishers’ lawyers insisted he add.

“Who owns the words?” Mr. Shields asks in a passage that is itself an unacknowledged reworking of remarks by the cyberpunk author William Gibson. “Who owns the music and the rest of our culture? We do — all of us — though not all of us know it yet. Reality cannot be copyrighted.”

War Memorials With Neatly Made Beds

Karina Lau’s bedroom has not changed. A stuffed teddy bear and floppy-eared rabbit sit on top of her floral bedspread. Angel figurines and framed family photos line her bookshelf and dresser.

The only thing missing is her. Private Lau was killed seven years ago when insurgents shot down her helicopter in Falluja, Iraq. She was 20 years old.
The Shrine Down the Hall

Her mother, Ruth, usually keeps the bedroom door closed and the window shades drawn, but when the photographer Ashley Gilbertson came to her home in Livingston, Calif., she opened them up.

Since 2007, Mr. Gilbertson has been recording the bedrooms to which young American service members will never return. “You walk into these rooms,” he said, “and you feel like these are the kids you used to hang out with.”

“I’ve been covering conflict and war for more than 10 years, but this is the first time that I’ve really felt like a war photographer,” said Mr. Gilbertson, who is based in New York.

Although his coverage of Iraq has won awards, including the Robert Capa Gold Medal from the Overseas Press Club of America in 2004, Mr. Gilbertson, 32, said he has stopped photographing combat zones because the American public isn’t responding anymore.

WASHINGTON — Researchers, political satirists and partisan mudslingers, take note: C-Span has uploaded virtually every minute of its video archives to the Internet.

The archives, at, cover 23 years of history and five presidential administrations and are sure to provide new fodder for pundits and politicians alike. The network will formally announce the completion of the C-Span Video Library on Wednesday.

Having free online access to the more than 160,000 hours of C-Span footage is “like being able to Google political history using the ‘I Feel Lucky’ button every time,” said Rachel Maddow, the liberal MSNBC host.

Playing with Pictures: The Art of Victorian Photocollage
February 2, 2010–May 9, 2010
The Howard Gilman Gallery

Sixty years before the embrace of collage techniques by avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century, aristocratic Victorian women were already experimenting with photocollage. The compositions they made with photographs and watercolors are whimsical and fantastical, combining human heads and animal bodies, placing people into imaginary landscapes, and morphing faces into common household objects. Such images, often made for albums, reveal the educated minds as well as the accomplished hands of their makers. With sharp wit and dramatic shifts of scale akin to those Alice experienced in Wonderland, these images stand the rather serious conventions of early photography on their heads. The exhibition features forty-eight works from the 1860s and 1870s, from public and private collections.
Accompanied by a catalogue.

The exhibition was organized by The Art Institute of Chicago.

The exhibition in New York is made possible by The Hite Foundation in memory of Sybil E. Hite.

Redes sociales al descubierto
'Babelia' avanza una investigación que revela el poder de páginas como Facebook o MySpace, en 'Conectados' (Taurus).

WINSTON MANRIQUE SABOGAL - Madrid - 22/02/2010

¿Somos realmente libres? ¿Nuestras decisiones dependen exclusivamente de nosotros o de los demás? ¿Cuál es el verdadero poder del ciberespacio como moldeador de vidas? Son tres de las preguntas que palpitan en las páginas de Conectados. El sorprendente poder de las redes sociales y cómo nos afectan, que Taurus publicará este miércoles en España. Una pista: La felicidad, la obesidad o la riqueza se contagian a través de las redes sociales que tienden a cambiar hábitos o conductas de manera consciente o inconsciente. Un tramado de influencias que hoy adelanta Babelia en ELPAÍ, a través de un pasaje del libro.

Nicholas A. Christakis, sociólogo y médico, y James H. Fowler, profesor de Ciencias Políticas, son los dos estudiosos de las redes sociales que firman este ensayo. Partiendo de la base de que en la naturaleza humana anida la naturaleza social, los dos científicos estadounidenses reconstruyen gran parte de la historia y evolución de los comportamientos en grupo. Estudios, análisis, ejemplos y reflexiones que dejan al descubierto el poder de los demás, conocidos o desconocidos, sobre el destino de cada individuo. Estas páginas desvelan esta asombrosa ascendencia. Y confirman que los estándares con que se medía el comportamiento humano ya no sirven y que los avances tecnológicos han cambiado el mundo y han transformado los mecanismos de estudio.

Denuncia / Report: Apple's Ban on Sexy Apps is Selective
Enviado por editor en Martes, 23 Febrero, 2010 - 04:35 (8286 lecturas)
Tema Noticias/News

Sarah Jacobsson, PC World

Apple has banned sexy apps from its app store -- but the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit app, the Playboy app, and the FHM app (which features sexy "girl of the week" photos) are still hanging around.

Last Thursday, Apple revealed a new policy for its app store: applications with "overtly sexual content" are no longer allowed. The policy was not officially announced, but rather relayed through an e-mail to app developer Jon Atherton, who sent it along to TechCrunch.

Atherton is the developer of Wobble iBoobs, an application that lets you add "wobble zones" to photos of bikini models (the zones then move when you shake your iPhone). This functionality was classified as "overtly sexual" by Apple (hate to say it, but I can see why), and thus the app was removed from the app store.

Atherton has since spoken with Apple about the exact details of the ban, and has posted a list of the new rules on his blog:

1. No images of women in bikinis (Ice skating tights are not OK either)

2. No images of men in bikinis! (I didn't ask about Ice Skating tights for men)

3. No skin (he seriously said this) (I asked if a Burqa was OK, and the Apple guy got angry)

4. No silhouettes that indicate that Wobble can be used for wobbling boobs (yes -- I am serious, we have to remove the silhouette in this pic)

5. No sexual connotations or innuendo: boobs, babes, booty, sex -- all banned

6. Nothing that can be sexually arousing!! (I doubt many people could get aroused with the pic above but those puritanical guys at Apple must get off on pretty mundane things to find Wobble "overtly sexual!)

7. No apps will be approved that in any way imply sexual content (not sure how Playboy is still in the store, but . . . )

Google pide "excepciones" en derechos de autor

R. M. - Madrid - 03/02/2010

Google considera que España necesita una Ley de Propiedad Intelectual "consistente, fuerte y con visión de futuro", que proteja los derechos de autor, pero que a la vez permita el desarrollo de nuevos modelos de negocio en Internet.

La directora de Relaciones Institucionales de Google España, Bárbara Navarro, pidió ayer ante la Subcomisión de Propiedad Intelectual del Congreso que la nueva LPI incluya más "excepciones" sobre los derechos de autor, como "la cita, la parodia o la posibilidad de incluir digitalización de contenidos con fines divulgativos".

En la misma comparecencia, desde las patronales tecnológicas AETIC y ASIMELEC se reclamó que se rebaje y se limite el canon digital por copia privada. Por su parte, la Confederación Española de Consumidores y Usuarios (CECU) pidió una mayor transparencia por parte de las entidades de gestión colectiva de derechos de autor.

Rua Poço dos Negros nº55

“There is a house halfway along the road with its door locked. Not much can be seen from outside because the windowpanes are painted black. From inside comes a strange muffled sound. I stopped by the door for a few minutes without moving. From inside appeared a sheet of white paper. I looked at it for a while and, suddenly remembering I had a black pen in my pocket, wrote: Hello, I’d like to come in. I folded the paper and passed it under the door. From beneath another piece of paper emerged containing the following words:

Learn by heart. Don’t say what you’re thinking because the effort of not doing so intensifies the wish to create another text. Learn by heart. Crumble this bit of paper. Do something without need to learn how to do it. Destroy a set of words. Follow the movement of a sentence from one side to another without any danger. Learn by heart. Learn with your heart. Don’t speak with your heart in your mouth at a place that seems to not contain any measure or degree of intensity. Learn by heart like the poem that remains written in your head and on your body, the story, the song, and the prayer.

I read those sentences once, twice, three times. I sat down. I remained quiet for a while. After 10 or 15 minutes, I turned the sheet of paper over and began to write…”(Extract from a text in the video To Learn by Heart.)

Archivo Comentado FORA DE CAMPO - sobre o arquivo de cinema de moçambique, de catarina simão, 28 de novembro, 18h00

Entrada livre, lotação limitada.

com a participação de Jorge Blasco Gallardo ( Proyecto Culturas de Archivo, Barcelona), Alex Arteaga (Universidade Humboldt, Berlim) e Ros Gray (Goldsmith College, Londres)

A arquivística colonial passou de assunto histórico a tema da actualidade em 2008, quando um acordo entre os Governos de Portugal e Moçambique permitiu pôr em marcha um processo de recuperação do arquivo de cinema de Moçambique.

"Fora de Campo - sobre o arquivo de cinema de Moçambique" é um projecto de investigação artística sobre os actos de transformação politica e em especial as que constituem o arquivo de cinema Moçambicano. Organizar, preservar, indexar, classificar um acervo de imagens, são actos que operam de acordo com um propósito, uma tendência, um pensamento, num contexto tecnológico e intelectual. Como tal, todas estas acções actuam sobre as imagens induzindo um reconhecimento subjectivo e nesse processo adquirem a capacidade de as transformar.

"Fora de campo" é uma expressão tirada do vocabulário técnico do cinema e que serve de marco para traduzir simultaneamente um método e um território de pesquisa. Trata-se de olhar essas imagens através dos vários dispositivos (técnicos, administrativos e políticos) que as organizam e as exibem, as construções subjacentes e colaterais que, não estando no centro da imagem, nelas influem ao mesmo nível que a cena ou a acção. >> mais infos

The new operating system is more consumer friendly and includes several upgrades, including a lightning-fast search function.

October 4, 2009

icrosoft Corp.'s new Windows 7 computer operating system hopes to pull off a major trick with memory.

Not computer memory, but ours.

It's supposed to make us forget Vista.

The Vista operating system, which Windows 7 will officially replace later this month, had a terrible reputation almost from the time it debuted in 2007.

Because of Vista's technical foibles, sluggish operation and inability to play nicely with some other programs, consumers and professionals shunned it in droves, refusing to update from Microsoft's old, reliable XP operating system.
