Many Internets, many lives - Future Tense - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

How is the vision we have of our digital lives matching the reality? In a digital age who are we connected to and who are we not connected to? Should we re-think how evenly distributed access to the Internet really is? Two leading Internet scholars talk about the ways in which people are engaging with the digital world — from Australia and Africa to the suburbs of Boston and Shanghai and all points in between.

Guests:
Ethan Zuckerman, Director of MIT’s Centre for Civic Media and co-founder of Global Voices.

Dr Genevieve Bell, Intel Fellow, Intel Labs Director, Interaction and Experience Research

  1. I’m a cyber utopian and I’m proud of it! - Future Tense - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Call someone a ‘cyber utopian’ and it’s likely to be taken as an insult, according to leading media theorist Ethan Zuckerman. But we’ll meet some self-confessed utopians (of the digital variety) who are out of the closet and proud! While they concede cyber utopianism can get a little disconnected from reality, that’s what they like about it. It’s a testing ground for future opportunities they say — a way of encouraging us to think big and make the most of the Internet and new technologies.

  2. What does our technology future look like? - Big Ideas - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    When it comes to information technology the only constant is change. In 1998 70% of the world’s internet users were from the United States but by 2010 it was only 17% and falling. Genevieve Bell follows technology trends closely and says the world is being fundamentally remapped and that women between 40 and 60 years are the crucial group that help shape the future. Rather than tech obsessed teenagers it’s this group of women who are not only the lead adopters and users of new technology but they’re also doing most of the surfing, texting, skyping and social networking.
