    Findery UI Overview[08:45–15:50]

    John leads us through the Findery UI, which has been carefully laid out to aid in sharing and discovery.

    Travelling and capturing memories and stories[15:50–17:20]

    John recalls travels of his and how he was able to record audio soundscapes, and how we all have iOS devices now that are capable of gathering photos, videos, and recordings of everywhere we go. He also talks about tweeting experiences versus capturing them and being able to share them more richly later.

    Users and content are what make discovery services compelling[17:20–18:47]

  3. BBC Forum: Counterfeiting

    How do you spot a forgery in the art market? How can you tell if a medicine is a useless or even harmful fake which might make your illness even worse? Bridget Kendall is joined by Ghanaian anti-counterfeiting entrepreneur Bright Simons; art auctioneer and author of Breakfast at Sotheby’s – An A-Z of the Art World Philip Hook; and art historian Winnie Wong whose new book Van Gogh on Demand takes us on a trip to China, to a village where every year millions of copies of well-known oil paintings are churned out to be distributed for sale in around the world.

    With Ales Kot & Morgan Jeske …

    a bit late this time around, but it’s not entirely hopeless as Taylor and I take a deeper look at Dennis Hopeless’ two contributions to Marvel Now! Avengers Arena #1 and Cable & X-Force #1.

     

    Taylor also chats with Ales Kot (Wild Children) and Morgan Jeske (Disappearing Town) about working together on their new mini-series Change from Image Comics. Plus we continue to enjoy our BrewDog Craft Beers with the rather potent Dogma.

  8. Culturesmonde / La diversité culturelle à l’épreuve d’internet / SELECTION FRANCE CULTURE

    L’anglais est la langue d’Internet. C’est une évidence. Une évidence tellement évidente qu’elle est assez loin de la réalité. La plus grande majorité des contenus en ligne serait anglophone. Internet ne serait qu’un autre moyen pour les Etats-Unis d’assurer leur Soft Power, de diffuser leur culture et leur langue. Car c’est bien de géopolitique et de rapports de forces internationaux dont nous allons parler aujourd’hui. Une langue est vecteur d’identité bien sûr, mais aussi de valeurs. C’est une grille de lecture du monde. Et donc sur Internet, le monde se lirait à l’anglo-saxonne. Mais comme souvent quand on parle d’internet, les préjugés sont grands.

  10. Rebecca MacKinnon: Let’s take back the Internet!

    In this powerful talk from TEDGlobal, Rebecca MacKinnon describes the expanding struggle for freedom and control in cyberspace, and asks: How do we design the next phase of the Internet with accountability and freedom at its core, rather than control? She believes the internet is headed for a "Magna Carta" moment when citizens around the world demand that their governments protect free speech and their right to connection.
