yes good morning ladies and gentlemen money and loving and that's enough so that they were having the Institute of Network Cultures which formulation of Dutch the plant and scope this info below the invasion from this study questions on of your on the top of the of acknowledgment
of Pentecost partitions shared finish out of it as if a guy's so we would do this talk in English because approximately 25 per cent of the the current this on on German speakers so that I would like to welcome everyone here and I'm going to lead you through some of the recent projects also instituted the culture before it comes to today's topic and kind I removed from Australia to the Netherlands back to and in 2004 where I is a unique opportunity to me I had my own little research institute the bigger than it really is we only have 2 permanent staff but uh and and that includes me this should have nonetheless coming from the squatters movement in the eighties that do-it-yourself culture I do exactly that you you know what I can do a lot with a little bit of money if you don't have any money it's really really
hard to do little but if you have little money you can
do an awful lot with so this is this is the name our recipe and I work well with a let's say that the European tradition of the critique as you can see with this you'll tonight fire here but then we started the initiative which still is dedicated to and for the development of what we call Internet criticism some have noticed that internet criticism has has gone mainstream lately at least in this country but it's certainly not in case of worldwide that was OK we are developing a methodology and that's the entails that the development of the let's say the How can I can say our
institute wants to spur early research into the emerging topics that means that we bring together researchers artists and writers around these issues with the idea and that's um the you think that we do kind of creative small critical mass of people that work in the same field they get to know each other and they start collaborate and so on and the rest the rest we know so what what we are doing is with the little financial means that we have here is a B B also the topic various uh and uh so that our specific methodology as a set of European and that we believe that radical criticism is 1 of the major forces innovation of course in the American Silicon Valley model of innovation has to be positive new age you have to bring good messages a few good message we think that the unique your European quality would be radical critique we this is our background intellectual background my name is of is that the doing the theory that something else and so it is true that the experience that we believe that we can develop critical concepts that they do wrong can also be you know
developed in a variety of practices the terms this is the website you can see a few of few of the of the projects so that and 1 of the most successful ones recently has in your projects project which deals with the hottest responses
to mutually to we've had already 5 the offences reader without using a 2nd publication this is a very very active mostly European network and so we hope to bring it to the well so that this is something
recent that we find the subset of the interventional view of all the things we do about this circuit this that 1 off in in in a in November but it goes back to its master organized by Florian Cramer and and in general that's the physics dollar from the vector this is kind of the loose European network of people that tried to to deal with know this search engines and search from let's say the arts and humanities perspective and so it's not purely purely technical of course that it is a technical topic that there are lots of work to what we are starting to is to bring together sort of people who work in this field from a critical perspective and that's quite important because if you know you know it's very it's quite difficult to critique it's very easy to to praise it and it's very hard to critique it that's from a sophisticated intellectual and what is the point of view if you don't want to end up in some kind of resentment or cultural pessimism or their warning warning kids not to use a computer and so on until there if you don't want to go there then then what and if you if you don't want to preach to Newton's burger uh and to help them in their pretty painful process of of of change and if you see that you know there are more than a bigger political projects then then you'll have to come up with something it's 1 thing to propose the nationalization of Google or a straight out the bank and but I think this better this is something that we can better deal with with the new European back perspective and do that in Brussels we think that that is also very interesting to look to look at alternatives for you to discuss them to promote them and also to see where where from goal and these are some of the questions that these projects in this network which is now a network of events are is posing we are looking at alternative browsers we're looking at the next generation of search engines and think that you know for instance from a technical point of view too long especially by journalists we've been focused on the the the algorithm kinds of fetishism of the of the Google algorithms by now we know that this algorithm was indeed important at the very beginning 10 12 years ago but the rule for instance now is to use this national enterprise and the the role in particular the over the inference that might be a little bit of a state in east there are a lot of different ways to search and will this think about 2 and the ways to do that and yeah so this is looks at this project looks into the the history as this book that kind of came out which out of in Indiana Indiana produced so this is the 1st comprehensive publication coming from Europe with the critical perspective that this in English and and in German so to separate the text books if you're interested this is probably the most sophisticated publication about this topic at at the moment if you read it you can also say well it's still a bit it's early days here and this is the problem that we have that in all these fields if you if you start to critical work you you really have the idea OK a lot happening but it's still we're still very much behind and this feeling that the critique is kind of running behind the the facts this is the structural problem that we we have to face on the 1 hand you could say OK if we're behind you have to speed up we have to do all we have to slow down even further that's something or you know we have to question the very very paradigm's that we are confronted with these projects really ask these questions
and the next word event is seen as Indiana so if you're interested we are and we are
continuing to to get up and to see you know how we can know do with critical interventions in that in that large field of of search and and who
will have to I have to say it's about it's not and that's also about this 1 and this is the project that we're doing this year articles critical point of view and is a so the PDF research news we have started this 1 together with the the Center for Internet and Society and the John as is speaking in in another room here and senior but he's around so to speak about the other project that is in battle that is doing the in the digital natives research initiatives and this is something that I that we're very proud of to have a lot it's a real Indian collaboration will also with people from the University of Siegen in Germany with also members in Melbourne Australia and the next meeting is now planned for this In in Leipzig so
there will be a German meeting of this initiative probably on the 20 2nd and 23rd of September there will be a meeting in German face of focusing on the of the research is the research that is happening within this this a cultural context that and then the next 1 of the big 1 is planned for the Taipei in January so we're really putting a lot of effort into pulling off independent
because the reasons why independent I think I don't know if you know ingredients that you quite quite soon into a fight with them has about about their project so that was the our idea that you know they're not so that it's not forbidden for them to participate but this is not a collaboration with the media and the media Foundation and we're quite explicit about what we want to have a free space to talk about all the all the different aspects of the of the VB approach in order to critically supported and said this is this is really comes from people own more than half of them are in fact of course Wikipedians that's the prior that but uh because you need to know something about it if you if you wanna do research about the debt ceiling the topics that we are trying to deal with this with
this network still still an emerging as we as we speak we emphasis a lot on the on the interface design via itself is working on that we've got more academic section on the history of encyclopedias and you know the place of the bee and its relation to ask that because Wikipedia is going multiculti media and that's a very interesting development in relation to the Creative Commons my field and so on so that's a big statistics as well because the it's the 2nd biggest work website in the world it generates an enormous amount of data on different datasets that researchers can use and again and of course the most central debates there is designed based it's about knowledge issue of moderation and what we all know about and also the German case there's very interesting this means the basis that recent approach based about possible for walking and because it is a thing that the global initiative and the media itself as emphasize this slightly more and more that because most of the country we know that are somehow white male age you know that some of from the from the guys over there this is known the statistics about that are available and can show it to you if you like the 1 that is the challenge will be to here is of course to be moved to the non-Western world to really worked on Spanish our and a lot of other languages all these be out there are no divisions are not available they have started but it's not really about bringing them up to a critical mass and the differences the German and the media really have achieved in the German Wikipedia and that very very good example of of how to do that because Spanish and English that somehow world languages things get a little bit less so the postcolonial critique of the the BDI is a very very important style now I come to the topic myself as I already said when I ask myself what is Web 2 . 0 this is usually my hands and this is what has happened since the dot-com crash things
that the 2nd incarnation of the Internet culture like and that is in the significant moves of the internet users and Internet cultures away from from the way you've heard China becoming bigger than the US was used last year while ago that we can go into all the statistics this 1 is maybe also quite
significant English still is the number 1 language but in 1 between 1 and 2 years there will be no longer the case overall English will somehow stabilize around a comfortable minority position of 20 25 per cent of of the content and so this is particularly Spanish you want to use that will of will grow significantly over the next few years I don't think German can grow larger than the Japanese comics really GroEL Korean can't really call but others that have the effect in really interesting you know
growth spurt ahead of this is what I have been emphasizing a lot in my own of blog research maybe you you you know that was Kimberly from years ago or years and the impulse and that is in fact based on this very very diverse of pictures that you get when when we talk about in a lot of people blow when when the block but what what I talked and usually the emphasis in the media is usually around on this so when we're talking about bloggers and that's particularly the case in Germany and I think that's very unfortunate it is always about how the problem is related to social media pose millions of what can do that and I think that is there from the from just purely from the perspective of the statistics this is slightly irrelevant question for because if you look at the overall slow landscape people blog about anything about anything you and there's some much going on and the question whether you know someone was to become journalists or not only is this I mean it for for me is completely over rated and it's really also a pity because what we do not get to see if there is a rich variety in block of culture that if we only emphasized in small groups of of 1 of the journalists were not then the whole thing is going in circles and what happens when it's going in circles a high and then you're out you forgotten and we don't we know all the cycles and I think you know we can learn from them
yeah what has happened over the last few years is is this this kind of obsession almost with uh the quantities that there is this whole feeling that we are overwhelmed and and in in the academic essays so we we would call this the quantitative data on the internet has gone from let's say a pioneering culture subcultures agriculture to work the mainstream mainstream that is not that is maybe not so different from society but it may be quite different from the media landscape that we have not over the past few benefits and so as to what's what we we are up the particularly dealing with is this the issue of was so
that OK well here you can see other of statistics and it just doesn't stop I'm
fact million tweets a day and a million 900 thousand the new articles that the ball is and so on
now and and so here again there are there are more and more issues and see what what this has meant to be particularly in the for the for the leaders in the West Germany's fold In the kind of the of opinionated press is this that that nation is the sticker kind of as a crying for guidance and there this this fear of information and that people can't manage it any more than have stopped reading their e-mails that they have to somehow deal with with but they can't they're not fitting into their busy everyday life and so on and so know and so we have been dealing
with this issue of already for for for a while a not institute in in 2006 we started this this initiative called my productivity and it deals with the issue of the years specially in Berlin of course has been discussed widely and that's the whole issue but also you know how do you manage how do you make a living how do you divide time all these questions that you might consider as a as private or personal but we we know very well that they're completely defined by the rules in society for for many professions to deal with the Internet is becoming an inevitable that mainly I have noticed for instance in the Netherlands that because of the rising and rising unemployment the all the architecture firms have not so suddenly of woken up so all the on the architects there's fired about 20 % of the work force and they discovered that they have not had now have to deal with when the students 0 of course in the building boom they couldn't care less they have clients anyway that it didn't really matter so uh what they thought what they did with the Internet and they doing very well anyway but just very recently so it's kind of goes in waves and every that profession has to do with it but this
is this is the research that has recently we have permission to do but who worked along the School of Economics and you ask the question you know how what did you working circumstances whatever working conditions in Our industry another branch and this is really important that to us because we know for instance in the case of weapons design process of being fully that's still a lot of people at the end of the fuel and that she had a very interesting outcome is saying that people accept lower in God's because they engage in in freedom they don't have to work for a boss and this is so so that a lack of income is compensated in that's the lifestyle choices which is interesting because it doesn't really good fits to pure letters and marxist kind of analysis of infant and so on so this is kind this this is similar to similar those assigned to some guy use of saint of the precarious workers this is really need get done invention and what I like about it this is that it it's kind of tries to emphasized this double aspects of the situation that they needed we to get the that we can proud the over all the freedoms that we have games but of course we are very concerned about the conditions and the ego so so and I think this is this is kind of the strategy that that that we should follow and I find this very
interesting article follow-up German example of that that I need to know which is about the interns and the way the resistive force in particularly cultural sector is is using terms of this is of course also the case with the which of the new media and design come from companies who were employed lot of these so and and I think just from the perspective of of organizing people and you know race social issues this this is really an interesting
study again by now come to the the topic of the what's of my title and that is the free culture and that that's what we have led the scene is quite interesting the last class of cultures but it's also very interesting and inspiring the vector this is what the Ox causes the they were held for the 2nd time in in in Barcelona in 19 of Talbot and it's usually that especially in the Spanish speaking world in the Spanish context maybe it's a little bit comparison even to this event here and we had for the 1st time in in the preparation with the last number of people in a big debate with the organizers about why they emphasize free culture free culture is clearly an and you know right wing concepts of of US think tanks that kind of wants to know will have along with the intellectual property rights regimes is is related to creative commons and Lawrence Lessig it's a very very you know kind of liberal approach and from that's political perspective test you have to be said that the celebration of free culture is not really in the interests of the the the creative work that of course we cannot go back to the old regime of intellectual property rights but at least we have to put it on the agenda how to make a living this is at the time of economic crisis and you had these is very
hot in particular young people and what we cannot walk away from this and just celebrate free culture to everybody has to give its work away for free and and be happy with Creative Commons and so on and and so that there was a really lively debate there about this and and it
is this kind of coalition that I think is is kind of pointing in the future when we attract tried to that maintains some of the values of priests free software open source of free culture Creative Commons ends at the same time focused on how we can you know give creative workers intellectual work as a public intellectuals and so on and so on and in the and this
is the charter that was produced at the at the event uh know Barcelona it's it's very interesting document because it you can see that the people who are who have made these are clearly is starting to have doubts internally and have a lot of debates about about this issue how to how to reconcile these 2 these 2 different that's same amount and that is of course the groups in German politics has has worked on this for a for a long time that and their emphasis on on peer-to-peer production so that that is something somehow a threat that we should also and insert uh in this debate but this is kind of my opinion where we are at the moment yes well we need to do to defend a free culture but we also need to put
the economic things on that argument economic demands on the agenda of this is of course part and you can see can see you can download for free if both free markers and and he's a very hypocritical person is the that is there are editor-in-chief of wired magazine and he has always refused to to put his book online for free many people have have have done it for him and this kind of points and because of the internal hypocrisy of all the Silicon Valley uh agenda and free is always free of others in other people's content that needs to to be free of my own and the other side of this was from of the book were is now 2 years old but it is still but the it's kind of you know incorporates the dominant let's say in the internet ideology 1 you also of year yeah what you know about you and I'm talking about the book itself so mean and not make available but that also in distributed yeah now I wanna go through all of this the full so that's Internet critics in that year animal kind of looking at that I wanna relate to a lot of things I I think that's interesting but this really is certainly the most prominent 1 from each at least that Nicholas call that used to be editor-in-chief of The Harvard Business Review in the nineties and then it became an independent writer and his latest book this is going to be out there in a few months is called what the Internet is doing to our the shell this is blog and the idea is probably the most spheres kind of critical of the free of Wikipedia also of the economic model that underpins Google and so you can hide the recommend you to kind of look at work and follow that he
became and a the the famous in July 2008 when the Atlantic Monthly published that this article it's a school making us stupid and the yeah the piece that you ask the question of whether are searching is kind of creating a new culture of what I told you know model no neurosurgeon because that's the term of course Freud used a hundred years ago but this is kind of thing want to what he you as described in this uh this nervousness this relentless looking going back to the different uh different windows different sites updating we all know what that means is conference the website is dedicated to the real-time Internet and I think that is a sign of the times Internet is that it's very structured and culture moving away from the archives approach and moving slowly but but it's too the flow to the real time the internet this this conference is a good example that we have a lot strange and it's not archived there and this is kind of what what people expect the states and also what what what is called but what you need to do cost you streaming has been around for the last 10 thousand years or so but finally it's working and also the computers at the very end of the of the line but at the end of the users are now ready to receive a lot of a lot of data so this this real-time Internet is kind of ready to to take off and because God is In this essay ask you know what what the long-term implications are the of of this culture and of course there is a big debate amongst the teachers and you know in the building service sector also about this and should should we start teaching children who cannot find but that's in fact children are already doing so maybe we have another philosophy uh in in the in the in this in the school in the classroom and that the children are themselves are already uh area just doing this this way of None of whether it's a form of learning or not this is exactly the base and this article maybe looks more into their what I call in of the neurological term the next criticism which means that there is a growing amount of opinion leaders and researchers that looking into the long-term effects on the human brain also all these numbers of this constant searching and switching mountains being available pleasure he is 1 of the players in the field and I I find this that this approach quite interesting is 1 hand is an intellectual but he's also a kind of a very pragmatic almost intrapreneurial lack of research and so he she kind of shied away a little bit from all these big cultural debates as a source for him this is the problem is quite simple it's fulfilled failure not information alone and I think that's that's interesting and this this this problem with Proposition so makes will be with us for quite some time and work of course here you mean with the Philly he doesn't mean of course the filters that are now under debate everywhere that will filter Internet content for censorship and you here you have to think of filters probably more in in the sense of the so called dashboards that people installed on the on the desktop and where where you decide which information arrives to you where you are again being in control because you have to have
a defined in terms of the filter and this is in the middle here said much about this guy and his book playback has been widely and discussed the main here and the the German speaking world not have been tested yet you certainly part of that that's a scene what I call the neurological terms this in his book The is paying a lot of attention to this question of information overload on how to do with it and the question of the of the brain 1st of all yeah the book was I think quite hastily written and you need to deliver rewrite think for a 2nd edition and do that but they are overall I mean coming from the very pragmatic cultures it's quite astonished at least for me that I got chance major newspaper is able to write such a book in the Netherlands and would be completely in conceivable that just don't have the intellectual capacity to do that and that is this is and the in the in the in the in the game of go off to selling that we quick-and-dirty news so in that sense I had a really nice that there is still the collateral culture in this country at
least you can't say many other countries where known and anti-intellectualism is very strong but not this is of course the idea of the the 1 that that I read with the most pleasure and it's a very very problematic book I hope it's good will come out in in in German as soon as it arrives from really from the inside of the of the from the fact that it means that there is a really Silicon Valley that kind of thing you heard of him he's the benefit to the RR that it's very much also into playing alternative instruments and into you know the the music industry he has a very rich and uh you know different diverse licensees operating in India and a lot of different fields and this book is there is there really is a radical critique of of free culture of the mid younger culture of the media and it's a very strong to go back to some kind of humanistic radical individualism this is what the things that will ultimately saves the internet not the crowdsourcing not so that you know not the kind of the collaborative uh projects but that the the individual voices that and this is kind of this sums up this is the arguments in this book have to follow the money and if the money is going to advertisers read yet again say will of course have because he's Silicon Valley inside is not allowed to greedy Google's so you cannot write cool that of course being equal to that of silicon valley readers like and the readers we can read their will instead of musicians then societies Mortensen with manipulation the 2 of you it's kind of like that it's a bit naive but but he is the 1st real inside the in that culture that stands up and says this is we should start this we cannot we should start celebrating the so-called user-generated content to do yourself culture is leading nowhere it's Domingos down it's not being as foot and he goes against the very nature of some of the internet uh uh itself which In this view should know that enable by the emancipation that the the individual
in my head only work maybe you have full this over a little bit that I'm now primarily focusing on on the surface From these trends I think as I said the colonization of of real time I think is is a really interesting 1 that uh you know it's going to stay with us maybe you know think of Twitter or a wave because but but also of course the the fact that people carry the incident with them all the way go on their libraries rifles and so on at that that all creating this this what political colonization of real a summary of this
so you can read in-depth uh on the website site called euros whereas recently posted and as I said on these issues and I'm currently writing a book about the about the issues and how to finish later on this year uh particularly in on focused on a common culture and but it's a bit ironic because my last book was called 0 comments and was that I was referring to the long and then I and now I'm not focusing so much on long-tail but looking at the you know order the really popular websites where each falsely you would have liked to to have responses and this is the big way websites in the Netherlands 1 of them is for instance is called Morocco but now where the where the user hangs out in fights over the all the issues of of Islam and its ability to hold the hobbyhorse of my country at the moment and this website tremendously popular amongst the really young people teenagers that same and and uh they dealing with 50 thousand comments every day 50 doubts and and is the data because they are operating in this very delicate reviewed and also offered a critique of some of these lines of Islamic fundamentalists that I'm trying to you know raises support there this side this is heavily policed in and the there's a lot of concern about the size however the question really is there and this is the 1st of more and more websites how do you deal with 50 thousand comments you can't read them all you can all you can outsource them little bit box and can we see that in the in the PPI increasingly the editing and the control of new entries in the media is done by box so the involvement of what is growing and we can also see that in fact the management of all of this common culture and the rise of extreme opinions of course that's related that because there are a lot of people that have very frustrated this this is the times of economic crisis of right-wing populism leads to a growing and just so you know what happens in in in hundreds of Sunday and this and this is really this is now going hand in hand with the Internet being the mainstream of voice and the theory wouldn't breast no longer really catching up so this is kind of the new cultural background and its related to what kind of what I call the emergence of national labs and because the more and more what we see is that there is a decline over all the decline of the so-called global Internet and ideology 2 words nationally confined spaces and it's very ironic here that China's leading the way here with his great chance viable and they are now exporting that's technology to a lot of different countries of course with the help of a lot of western companies that install this filtering software and that are actively involved in sensory the so this is a real debate and of course another presentation and all you know there's there's a lot of them are more that said about these trends like a close here with saying that we are with the coalition of people enough so that have
actually together as a big event only on the economy of open content it's a follower of the
underlying event that the body organized in April 2008 which was called economies of the comments and we will see this event is particularly look at the question you know against that would would have raised the
understanding of freedom but also the question of you know how helping out not just make a living in this space but are we going to how we're going to deal with the cultural heritage and a lot of kind of issues that the border as a political issues cultural legal issues and that the economy and we think that it's really time to come together and have a lot of brain brainstorms in an open session that you
know how what would be the press and the and the thank you it's time for questions so if you if you have to and talk about them when yeah much of the summary of all solutions this a certain kind of lecture that connect you with a while that the do-it-yourself culture is something you that against them in the novel that what led to general knowledge what is he talking to like make about do you know who the instructor bolstered itself culture or non this main example is we can be yeah about uh uh the the other example that he is using his book it's not so much related to the Internet but to the spreading of digital technologies in the in the in the music industry and what he's saying is that he sees a direct connection between the rise of as it using the editing software the digital production conditional distribution as the decline what he calls pop music that there are easy according to him I don't agree with over there has not been any new kind of style you create a new style coming out of the music branch of for the last 20 years and the blames that to this spreading of the initial and he says that these things technologies and dumping people down there they're pointing people only at that mashups that's and they are not stimulating people who to create new original music and music styles thank you and so on whether or not you know giving you mentioned so because you a ridiculous series and of the sort of very sort of rainfall was and you will to the local and vision of what the title on hold on Mars so I don't have a set of policies that OK yeah yeah that's a good question because finally phrases have must said something about it in his in his present speech in 2006 and also in relation to the use features in the and uh which he describes the internet as a secondary culture as cat kind of as a comment culture that's also I think it is also a normative statement that he makes clear that should stay secondary because the other 1 the primary culture which is the print media and the media have to remain the dominant position in the creation of culture and the kind of filtering and production of of that set collected all the union yes he doesn't believe that the that the internet which is fragmenting the whole landscape is able to really uh you know uh synthesizer public opinion and so yeah that's where we are actually you know talking about the effect of the Frankfurt School and yeah it's quite unfortunate that there isn't very much uh happening the only person that I find really inspiring is an Israeli woman and anybody lose a book has been recently translated during the uh she's been heavily into being influenced by the school and she writes about the emotional capitalism she also had the case study about speeding these websites and she's she's really up to up to the top so if you're interested in that I can highly recommend to what the emotional emotional that's that's the title of 1 of the books even the order are well no you that thank you I would like to to share questions and instead of is making us stupid I don't think that with little with making us stupid but I think something else that we have active on with 2 0 and social media and we think we have been busy doing things and but I think we see everything they behind the scenes glasses so everything is fine we're are doing the activity and what is your opinion about the quality of the others Google making us stupid is really looking at it from the perspective of mainstream of culture of the culture of academia and all of that said the prime science western sides of knowledge production and we could say that yes indeed I think these tools work against you know the very for is the very principle of reflection if there is that this is the whole the really argument if there is no in the fall that is there is no time to think and if we have to think real time you can't time that's not possible yet thinking requires time and for instance that these are kind of the kind of you know cultural critiques happening if you look at it from a perspective and I'm going to talk about that tomorrow and account China at the center of the world give us a 2nd thought on and looking at this from an activist that perspective where these things are more like for tools of or whether that 0 2 2 0 can become the tools you if we must adhere to I don't think we have yet to master these 2 very well at the moment he's ever done in my view mostly US American and corporate platforms or environment they have yet to be developed in Tool and once they will become tools we get more get more of a great honor as speaking from the perspective of artists active so on but that's not summarizing tomorrow's talk that took please come here 1 immoral 1 more question because we're questioning 1 OK but the use of the minimum of what we always use more open to conclude fj but the fact fact that
