Is it Written in the Stars?

Matteo Pasquinelli … suggests that the form of our cities, the organization of our labor, the content of our entertainment and, I would add, the rules of our lawbooks and the teleological principles of our arts and sciences are all dependent on the greed, fear and irrational exuberance that drive the denizens of the electronic markets. – Brian Holmes

“[…] Imagine the night sky as an overarching dome, filled with thousands of shimmering points of light. Like celestial messengers they glitter and gleam as they drift across the face of the heavens. Each of these bright stars represents the stock of a publicly traded corporation. The intensity of their luminous presence varies in real time according to the frequency of trading. If one star co-varies with others – that is, if a pattern emerges between the rates at which certain stocks are bought and sold – then the flickering points of light draw slowly together, forming unstable constellations.

Reblogged User Labor Markup Language (ULML)

ULML capture / Burak Arikan & Engin ErodganUser Labor Markup Language (ULML) posted on Serial Consign by Greg J. Smith:

The … screen capture is pulled from the explanation for Burak Arikan and Engin Erdogan’s exciting new User Labor project. With this venture, Burak and Engin have developed User Labor Markup Language (ULML), an XML format for determining the value of online activity, interaction and connectivity. The project neatly dovetails with other web initiatives like Data Portability and OpenSocial but moves beyond discussions about online identity and data ownership into the realm of quantifying the value of user contributions to web services. The User Labor statement contextualizes the project in light of a Web 2.0 business model we have all become rather accustomed to: Continue reading

Live Stage: Crowdsourcing Labor [us Brooklyn]

Upgrade! New York: Crowdsourcing Labor – Distributed Democracy or Centralized Sweatshop? :: November 11, 2009; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: The Change You Want To See, 84 Havemeyer Street, Brooklyn, NY.

Upgrade! NY continues its series on open source as it relates to activism and creative practice. Within activist and creative practice there is a range of models for mobilizing the labor and creativity of the crowd (aka “crowdsourcing”). Both practices experiment with a spectrum of autonomy and control within those models. From distributed design to distributed fundraising, MoveOn to Mechanical Turk, a crowdsourcer issues a call and creates structure for participation. Continue reading

Reblogged Urgent Aphorisms … Lovink + Rossiter

Urgent Aphorisms: Notes on Organized Networks for the Connected Multitudes by Geert Lovink and Ned Rossiter (The OrgMen) [posted on Net Critique] [Forthcoming in Mark Deuze (ed.) Managing Media Work, Sage, 2010]

Four Stages of Web 2.0 Culture: Use. Modify. Distribute. Ignore. – Johan Sjerpstra

In between the blog posting and the tweet there is the aphorism, a centuries old literary form that should do well amongst creative media workers. Zipped knowledge of the 21st century.

Already for 18th century German experimental physicist and man of letters, Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, there was an impossibility for knowledge to capture the totality of things. ‘It is a question in arts and sciences whether a best is possible beyond which our understanding cannot go’ (Lichtenberg). The answer to Twittermania is not the thousand page magnum opus. Today, in a techno-culture where the link never ends, there is a need to give pause to thought. Continue reading

[iDC] MTurk project – introduction

Francesco Gagliardi wrote:

I’ve been on the list for a while, but I don’t think I ever introduced myself. I work in performance and occasionally film and video, and write about performance history. Trebor asked me to introduce to the list the work I will be presenting at the Digital Labor conference in November. I can’t say too much about it yet since it is still developing, but here are the basics.

The piece will be based on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. I was struck in learning – through this list I believe – that, according to a recent survey, a good number of (western) MTurk workers engage with the tasks crowdsourced through the service in order to kill time and have fun, rather than simply to earn money.

[iDC] Recursive Publics and Forking

[Image: Garden of Forking Paths by wasabicube] Nate Tkacz wrote: Hi all,

I would like to add to the discussion about recursive publics*, consensus and forking. Anna briefly mentioned Christoph Spehr’s discussion of “withdrawal” in Free Cooperation. Her point, as I understand it, was to emphasise dissensus rather than consensus as the aspect of recursive publics that makes it significant as a political structure. Chris Kelty (from now on CK to avoid confusion) pointed to the practice of forking as an instance of productive dissensus. Through the practice of forking people can leave a project, taking the (non-exclusive) source code or whatever other materials that constitute the public with them and continue in a different direction. The fact that forking is a possibility, writes CK, keeps contributors responsive to each other and this presumably also works to legitimize the recursive public: Continue reading

[iDC] Labor in Second Life

No MatterScott Kildall wrote: […] On the topic of immaterial labor, Trebor has prodded me to discuss a specific work called No Matter, which is a collaboration between myself and Victoria Scott and was part of the Mixed Realities commission by Turbulence.org in 2007.

The No Matter project looks at the concept of the “imaginary object” — these are shared objects of the mind, which appear in myth, fiction, impossible objects, thought experiments and more. Popular examples include the Trojan Horse, the Holy Grail, Schrodinger’s Cat, the Yellow Submarine, the Time Machine and many more.

We constructed these in Second Life, a space of pure imagination, and extracted these as “digital plunder” (Second Life being a proprietary environment) and then reconstructed them as high-quality paper sculptures. Continue reading
