Scuttlebutt: Introduction · GitBook
“a decent(ralised) secure gossip platform
sea-slang for gossip - a scuttlebutt is basically a watercooler on a ship”

[See also: https://verse.app/

"Wouldn’t you rather have a social network that respected your privacy, resisted abuse and harassment, rewarded content creators and was open by default?

We would too. That’s why we’re building the world’s first mainstream client for a truly distributed social network."]

The FNF – Free Information, Free Culture, Free Society | The Free Network Foundation
"Who We Are

We are an organization committed to the tenets of free information, free culture, and free society.
We hold that advances in information technology provide humanity with the ability to effectively face global challenges.
We contend that our very ability to mobilize, organize, and bring about change depends on our ability to communicate.
We see that our ability to communicate is purchased from a handful of powerful entities.
We know that we cannot depend on these entities to support movement away from a status quo from which they are the beneficiaries.
We believe that access to a free network is a human right, and a necessary tool for environmental and social justice.

What We’re Doing

We envision communications infrastructure that is owned and operated cooperatively, by the whole of humanity, rather than by corporations and states.
We are using the power of peer-to-peer technologies to create a global network which is resistant to censorship and breakdown.

Geography of Twitter networks 10.1016 | ScienceDirect.com
"Based on a large sample of publicly available Twitter data, our study shows that a substantial share of ties lies within the same metropolitan region, and that between regional clusters, distance, national borders and language differences all predict Twitter ties. We find that the frequency of airline flights between the two parties is the best predictor of Twitter ties. This highlights the importance of looking at pre-existing ties between places and people."

"Vivimos momentos en los que los territorios se desdibujan, la frontera entre lo tangible y lo intangible es cada vez más difusa y las relaciones que se crean a través de la red toman cada vez más y más importancia en la definición de un nuevo espacio. ¿Cómo podemos entender estos nuevos territorios? ¿Cómo podemos asumir estas nuevas configuraciones espaciales?"

Network Realism: William Gibson and new forms of Fiction | booktwo.org
"the world becomes increasingly Gibsonian—Bigendian—when you’re reading the books. [examples]…

So, if Gibson was originally writing “on top of Firefox”, he’s now writing on top of Twitter…

Gibson’s been talking a lot lately about atemporality, this idea that we live in a sort of endless digital now. In “Zero History” we have an echo of “No Future”: everything compressed into the present…

Network Realism is writing that is of and about the network. It’s realism because it’s so close to our present reality. A realism that posits an increasingly 1:1 relationship between Fiction and the World. A realtime link. And it’s networked because it lives in a place that’s that’s enabled by, and only recently made possible by, our technological connectedness. …

Future scholars of Network Realism will have to decide if information visualisation and in particular projects like We Feel Fine fit into this definition. I suspect not, because I want to keep this to literature, and capital-A Authors, but I suspect there’s a connection. Perhaps in data griotism or whatever we end up calling that."

FAQ on Delicious
"A Network Bundle is simply a way to organize the people in your network into groups. For example, you might want to view all your friends bookmarks separately from your coworkers' bookmarks. To do this, you can create network bundles for your friends and coworkers seperately. Then clicking one of these bundles will filter your Network list to only the bookmarks saved by the people in that bundle.

cnewmark: Trust and reputation systems: redistributing power and influence
"In real life, personal networks are pretty small, maybe in the hundreds. Mass media plays a role in shaping reputation for a small number of people, including celebrities and politicians. A very small number of people have influence in this environment.

* people tend to work with each other
* people are normally trustworthy
* despite their large media footprint, there aren't many bad guys out there
* message spreads quickly
* message is persistent, it's there forever
* connectivity is increasingly pervasive
* people are finding that reputation and recommendation systems can be used to drive a lot of profit.

Okay, so we want to be able to see who we might be able to trust, maybe by seeing some explicit measurement, or maybe something implicit, like seeing their history, and who trusts them."

Natural Fuse : home / map
"Natural Fuse creates a city-wide network of electronically-assisted plants that act both as energy providers and as circuit breakers.

Every seemingly helpful device that a human being uses has its own carbon “footprint” which, in excess, can harm other living beings. “Natural fuse” is a micro scale CO2 monitoring & overload protection framework that works locally and globally, harnessing the carbon-sinking capabilities of plants.

Natural fuses allow only a limited amount of energy to be expended in the system; that amount is balanced by the amount of CO2 that can be absorbed by the plants that are growing in the system.

In the same way that circuit-breakers are useful for preventing excessive current use, so too can the Natural Fuse plants break the CO2 footprint “circuit”.

What would you do? Use less energy?Or supersize the fuse?"

The City Is Here: Table of contents « Adam Greenfield’s Speedbird
"Only by reckoning w/ these constraints & limitations will we formulate robust urbanist practice for 21st century, Newer Urbanism capable of fully embracing potential of networked informatic technologies while turning them to our own various ends...will require a new way of conceiving of public objects as informational utilities…new agreements regarding use of public space…& perhaps even new conception of practice of citizenship. None of these strategies will be sufficient on its own...list is far from comprehensive...successfully managing challenges of networked city will mean understanding it not just as an ecosystem but as single conjoined process unfolding in time...deeply seamful process, presenting all who encounter it with million gleaming hinges: apertures allowing you to reach in, withdraw useful intelligence, tweak its performance to your own...necessities, or plug its outputs as inputs into yet other running processes. Now, as never before, the city is here for you to use."

Network Culture | varnelis.net - "In this book I will argue that many of the key tenets of culture since the Enlightenment: the subject, the novel, the public sphere, are being radically reshaped."
From the introduction: "What unites these machines is their mobility and their interconnectivity, necessary to make them more ubiquitous companions in our lives and key interfaces to global telecommunications networks. In a prosaic sense, the Turing machine is already a reality, but it doesn’t take the form of one machine, it takes the form of many. With minor exceptions, the laptop, smart phone, cable TV set top box, game console, wireless router, iPod, iPhone, and Mars rover are the same device, but they become specific in their interfaces, their mechanisms for input and output, for sensing and acting upon the world. Instead of a universal machine, network culture seeks a universal, converged network, capable of distributing audio, video, Internet, voice, text chat, and any other conceivable networking task efficiently."

Inflection Points | the human network
"Make no mistake, this inflection point in education is going inevitably going to cross the gap between tertiary and secondary school and students. Students will be able to do for themselves in ways that were never possible before. None of this means that the teacher or even the administrator has necessarily become obsolete. But the secondary school of the mid-21st century may look a lot more like a website than campus. The classroom will have a fluid look, driven by the teacher, the students and the subject material.

Who Stole My Volcano? Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dematerialisation of Supervillain Architecture. « Magical Nihilism
"But then in an almost throw-away aside to Adam, he reflected that the modern Bond villain (and he might have added, villains in pop culture in general) is placeless, ubiquitous, mobile. His hidden fortress is in the network, represented only by a briefcase, or perhaps even just a mobile phone. Where’s the fun in that for a production designer? Maybe it’s in the objects. It’s not the pictures that got small, but the places our villains draw they powers from." ... "So - for a “4th generation warfare” supervillain there aren’t even objects for the production designer to create and imbue with personality. The effects and the consequences can be illustrated by the storytelling, but the network and the intent can’t be foreshadowed by environments and objects in the impressionist way that Adam employed to support character and storytelling. But - what about materialising, visualising these invisible networks in order to do so?"
