Due to an unfortunate run-in with some proprietary software, this week’s playlist is gone. To compensate for this injustice, I have included a fun drinking game. It’s very easy to play: just take a drink of your favorite beverage when commanded! Have a fun and safe Thanksgiving!
In On Manners (Routledge, 2011), Karen Stohr examines the morally complex world of etiquette. She maintains that rules of etiquette and manners are expressions of deeper moral principles. Considering a broad range of kinds of social contexts, Stohr develops a compelling account of the nature and philosophical significance of having good manners.
To celebrate reaching double figures, the boys play a drinking game on this episode, as a result they are more relaxed, but it would be fair to say the quality suffers. Topics discussed on this episode include; lost in translation stories (quickly turns to a brag session), underage drinking, selling out and interpreting the 10 commandments for our information age…oh and the slap is back!
The social web is now a teenager –awkward, arrogant, snarky, fearless, experimental and open. She is shaking things up and having a major impact on our culture, social dynamics and etiquette. What are the new social dynamics and cultural impacts of all these tools and technologies?
This session will explore the emerging etiquette issues of our participatory hyper-connected world. What are the new rules? How are our relationships, culture and business assumptions changing? Do we understand the impact of this new relationship persistance?
Do I have to ask before I post a photo of a friend online? Who has editorial approval?
Am I required to respond to every inbound communication I receive or is “ignoring” an accepted response?
Where is the line between encouraging participation and being just plain annoying?
What are you doing mucking up my activity stream?
What the heck is a “friend” anyway?
How do we design, build and manage these new spaces? What are the new rules of the online commons and the associated appropriate etiquette? This participatory session will ask attendees to contribute their own real world examples and will lay out a new framework for a new social contract. It’s our job to decide what we want our web teenager to be when she is all grown-up.
