Critical Technology: Networked and Open also means Collaborative
"This is what the Networked & Open PhD (NOPhD) is all about. It is about working w/ others in an open & collaborative way so everyone deepens their knowledge on a shared subject domain. The great part would be if everyone who is in the collaborative cohort aspired to develop a PhD level of knowing w/in the subject they share a passion. Due to the networked (& collaborative) aspect of NOPhD I believe a number of people in the cohort need to make it to PhD depth of knowing, otherwise it couldn't be considered networked. So I have faith & begin to encourage (& hopefully inspire) people around me (virtually & otherwise) who are interested in this pursuit of developing a deeper knowing of Folk Music & Dance. & those interested in pedagogy, technology & life-long learning; for I will be drawing on these skills & knowledge as I build upon this anchor subject.

So what exactly does this look like?…why don't I describe my week & how certain events fit into the networked & collaborative"

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."

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."

YBox: The DIY set-top box in an altoids tin
"The YBox is a hardware and software kit to create simple, (mostly) text-based channels. Half proof of concept, half hackable platform--it gives quick snapshots of personalized info and re-imagines the intersection of TV and the internet."

Teach and Learn Online: Out from under the umbrellas
"The individual teacher would be out from under the umbrella of the organisation as a whole, and made more responsible for their own actions - or lack there of - while the organisation and its hiearchy is set up to support the development of that individu
