'Social Reading' Projects Bring Commentary Into the Text - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Work by Stephen Duncombe. "The result of his sabbatical labors has just gone live. Called Open Utopia, it's a free, online version of Thomas More's Utopia that anyone can browse—and annotate. An example of what's sometimes called social reading, Open Utopia builds on the idea that a book doesn't have to be a static text. Online, a book can be a gathering place, a shared space where readers record their reactions and conversations. Those interactions ultimately become part of the book too, a kind of amplified marginalia."

Week 39: On space as a service | Urbanscale
"Broadly speaking, we’ve been considering a set of clearly related, and in some ways overlapping, concerns about the technologically mediated, temporary use of shared spatial resources. And while it’s not at all clear yet if there’s a rocky core at the center of this ideacloud, or, if we found one, how we’d go about developing it into a shipping product or service, it’s our sense that there’s something terrifically exciting and productive waiting to be articulated in here."

Facebook: The Privatization of our Privates and Life in the Company Town | technosociology
What is currently happening is the privatization of our privates, not just our publics. And this is not a mere question of legality but a lack of legal protections being carried over to a new medium. In some sense, this parallels the lack of carrying of wiretap protections on the phone to the Internet – the social relations did not change but the medium changed allowing for a gap in legal protections.

The correct analogy to the current situation would be if tenants had no rights to privacy in their homes because they happen to be renting the walls and doors. This week, you are allowed to close the door but, oops, we changed the terms-of-service. No more closed doors! You had locks last week but we don’t allow them as of this week. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

apophenia » Blog Archive » Facebook is a utility; utilities get regulated
Facebook speaks of itself as a utility while also telling people they have a choice. But there’s a conflict here.
