  3. Jenny Odell - KIKK Festival 2018

    Designing for the In-Between

    In her talk, Jenny Odell will draw on a set of disparate elements – her Filipino-American background, an interest in biological phenomena such as hybridization and symbiosis, and Eastern spiritual conceptions of the self – to highlight injustices and misunderstandings wrought by artificial and often colonial sets of boundaries. Addressing subjects from the evolution of mitochondria to the Philippine archipelago to 1990s net art, Odell lays out several prompts for designers and technologists. In a time of filter bubbles and personal brands, what does anti-essentialist design look like?

    Jenny Odell

    Jenny Odell is an Oakland-based writer, visual artist, and involuntary birdwatcher whose work often involves the rewards of close observation. In 2015, she was an artist in residence at Recology SF (the San Francisco dump), where she created the Bureau of Suspended Objects, an obsessively-researched archive of 200 discarded objects. Odell has also been an artist in residence at the Internet Archive, Facebook, and the San Francisco Planning Department. In 2016, she created a mural for the side of a Google data center in rural Oklahoma, using satellite imagery from Google Maps. Odell has written for SFMOMA’s Open Space, Topic, and the Creative Independent, and is currently work…

  4. Spotify presents Discover Weekly & Taste Profiles

    Allegedly, four million songs on Spotify have never been played once, thus it is understandable to feel overwhelmed by the perspective of having instant access to music catalogue virtually infinite. Searching for music in a streaming service is not like crate digging at record shops: the physical nature of the format needs to be replaced by new incentives that help the user discover his or her next favourite artist.

    Recommendation algorithms are getting increasingly more sophisticated and individualisation can achieve an unexpected level of accuracy, leaving behind restrictive tags and obvious relationships between genres and artists.

    Spotify presents in its system two functionalities aimed to discover music and understand our tastes better. Discover Weekly is a personalised playlist generated by an algorithm that compares the listening habits of the users with similar tastes to make high-precision recommendations, even unearthing the most hidden gems from the depths of Spotify. For its part, Spotify Taste Profiles is a collection of the music we listen to classified by genres and subgenres.

    Matthew Ogle and Ajay Kalia, in charge of Discover Weekly and Spotify Taste Profiles, respectively, will give a keynote on the latest innovations in recommendation algorithms.

  5. Sarah Bakewell: At the Existentialist Café: Freedom, Being, and Apricot Cocktails


    Rhodes College is a national, four-year, private, coeducational, residential college committed to the liberal arts and sciences that is consistently recognized by Forbes, the Princeton Review, and US News.

    WEBSITE: https://www.rhodes.edu RHODES NEWS: http://www.rhodes.edu/stories FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/rhodescollege TWITTER: https://twitter.com/rhodescollege INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/rhodescollege LINKEDIN: https://www.linkedin.com/school/20720/

    Existentialism was one of the most exciting movements of the twentieth century, inspiring several generations with its philosophy of liberation, authenticity, and political activism. Its concerns are remarkably close to those argued over today, from questions about freedom and purpose to the difficulties of living authentically in a technologically networked world. Sarah Bakewell, author of At the Existentialist Café, will explore the lives of the best-known existentialists, especially Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, and ask what they still have to offer in the 21st century.

  6. Sarah Bakewell @ 5x15 - Montaigne

    June 20th 2011, The Tabernacle

    Sarah Bakewell was born in Bournemouth on the English south coast in 1963, but spent most of her childhood in Sydney, Australia, after several years travelling the hippy trail through Asia with her parents. Returning to Britain, she studied philosophy at the University of Essex and worked as a curator of early printed books at London’s Wellcome Library for ten years before devoting herself to full-time writing in 2002. After a few years living in the Italian countryside, she has returned to urban life in London, where she teaches creative writing at City University, London, and for the Open University. Her three books are all biographies, but the latest, How to Live: a life of Montaigne, is also an exploration of philosophical questions, not least the one posed by its title: How does one live well?

  7. Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592) Sarah Bakewell interview

    http://www.philosophybites.com/ Montaigne cultivates his liberty by not adhering exclusively to any one idea, while at the same time exploring them all. In exercising his judgment on various topics, he trains himself to go off on fresh tracks, starting from something he read or experienced. For Montaigne this also means calling into question the convictions of his time, reflecting upon his beliefs and education, and cultivating his own personal thoughts. His language can be said to obey only one rule, that is, to be "an effect of sincerity," which is the very one that he demands from the pupil. His language bears an unmistakable tone but contradicts itself sometimes from one place to another, perhaps for the very reason that it follows so closely the movements of thought.

    If being a philosopher means being insensitive to human frailties and to the evils or to the pleasures which befall us, then Montaigne is not a philosopher. If it means using a "jargon", and being able to enter the world of scholars, then Montaigne is not one either. Yet, if being a philosopher is being able to judge properly in any circumstances of life, then the Essays are the exemplary testimony of an author who wanted to be a philosopher for good. Montaigne is putting his judgment to trial on whatever subject, in order not only…

  9. City Arts & Lectures presents Namwali Serpell & Carmen Maria Machado

    City Arts & Lectures presents Namwali Serpell & Carmen Maria Machado Thursday, April 9, 2020 Webcast from San Francisco

    Namwali Serpell is a Zambian writer who teaches at the University of California, Berkeley. She won the 2015 Caine Prize for African Writing, and her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The New York Review of Books, and The Best American Short Stories. Her first novel, The Old Drift, which Salman Rushdie calls a “dazzling debut,” tells the stories of three Zambian families across three generations, from the precolonial past into the near future. It was listed as one of The New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2019.

    In 2018, the New York Times named Carmen Maria Machado’s Her Body and Other Parties one of “15 remarkable books by women that are shaping the way we read and write fiction in the 21st century.” Machado’s most recent publication, the memoir of trauma and abuse, In The Dream House, has garnered further acclaim. “Machado has already dazzled us with her brilliant fiction writing and she exceeds all expectations as she breaks new ground in what memoir can do.” — Roxanne Gay.
