  2. “Die digitale Viertelstunde” mit Martin Fuchs

    ​Gehen oder bleiben? Der Grünen-Politiker Robert Habeck hat mit seinem öffentlichkeitswirksam inszenierten Ausstieg bei Twitter und Facebook für Diskussionsstoff gesorgt. In der neuen Ausgabe der "Digitalen Viertelstunde" erklärt Politikberater Martin Fuchs, warum er Habeck zwar verstehen kann, dennoch aber zu einer anderen Entscheidung gekommen wäre.

    Grünen-Chef Robert Habeck ist mit seiner Entscheidung, sich aus einigen sozialen Netzwerken zurückzuziehen, in den Nachrichten gelandet: Habeck hatte verkündet, dass ihn das Klima in den sozialen Netzwerken störe, zumal er sich dabei ertappt hat, auch selbst nicht immer einen angemessenen Ton zu treffen.

    Aber wie funktioniert Politik im digitalen Zeitalter, wenn man als Politiker nicht in den sozialen Netzwerken vertreten ist? Und welche Rolle bleibt klassischen Medien noch, wenn alle nur noch twittern?

    Darüber spricht Martin Fuchs in der "digitalen Viertelstunde". Er berät Regierungen, Parlamente, Parteien und Verwaltungen in digitaler Kommunikation. Zuvor war er Politik- und Strategieberater in Brüssel und Berlin. Zudem ist er Gründer der Social-Media-Analyse-Plattform Pluragraph und bloggt über Social Media in der Politik.

  3. 35C3 - Freude ist nur ein Mangel an Information

    https://media.ccc.de/v/35c3-9506-freude_ist_nur_ein_mangel_an_information

    Ein Demotivationsworkshop zur politischen Lage.

    Nico Semsrott hat in Zeiten des globalen Rechtsrucks den überflüssigsten Job der Welt: Er ist Demotivationstrainer. Mit Powerpointpräsentationen und viel Pessimismus schafft er es, komplexe Themen zu vereinfachen, ohne dabei auf alternative Fakten zurückgreifen zu müssen.

    Politisch gesehen ist zwar alles aussichtslos. Aber wenn man schon aufgibt, kann man man genauso gut auch das Resignieren aufgeben. Deswegen kandidiert Nico auf Platz 2 der Europaliste der Partei Die PARTEI. Um dann in Brüssel als Kommissionspräsident die Demokratie in Europa einzuführen. Notfalls gegen den Willen der Bürgerinnen und Bürger.

  5. Why do you send voice messages?

    The people who love voice messages love voice messages. Vox.com’s Kaitlyn Tiffany and The Verge’s Ashley Carman aren’t those people. On this week’s Why’d You Push That Button, they discuss voice messages and why people send them. They also try to figure out why people like them in the first place.Ashley talks to her best friend, Casey, about her habit of sending voice messages, and Kaitlyn interviews The Verge’s very own AI reporter James Vincent and his mom, Bridget, about their family texting dynamics. It’s heartwarming. Then, Ashley and Kaitlyn take all that they’ve learned to Djamel Agaoua, the CEO of messaging app Viber, to learn more about why people use voice messages and how they’ve become more popular around the world. Agaoua posits a few theories on why they’ve bloomed in popularity and previews how voice messages will evolve in the future.

  8. George H. W. Bush, American War Criminal

    The national religion of the United States is American exceptionalism. And we are now in the midst of a grotesque canonization of one of its imperial saints, George Herbert Walker Bush. Every media outlet in this country, every politician, Democrat and Republican, engaged in collective eulogy based on lies — lies about who Bush was, lies about his policies, lies about the mass-killing he oversaw during his life at the highest levels of power in the United States government.

    George H.W. Bush was an unrepentant war criminal who spent the overwhelming majority of his life making the world a worse place — a more dangerous place — and he leaves behind a global trail of tears, of bloodshed, of death and destruction.

    This is the eulogy that George H.W. Bush should be receiving. But instead, the U.S. and international news media are engaging in sick propaganda. Leave the stories about how classy he supposedly was, how cool his marriage was, how he built a father-son relationship with Bill Clinton, how much he liked Barack Obama, how he always wore those funny socks — leave all of that to the family in their private memorials.

    But for the rest of us, for the rest of the world, we must remember that his incalculable crimes were committed in public, from the highest chambers of power in …
