18:00 mspro: Von der Polis zum Anderen. Die Genese der neuen Öffentlichkeit
Der Grundsatz “öffentliche Daten nützen, private Daten schützen” stößt an die Grenzen seiner Tragfähigkeit. Er stößt, um genau zu sein, an eben die Grenze, auf der diese Unterscheidung beruht. Und das nicht nur, weil Daten sich nicht so sehr dafür zu interessieren scheinen, auf welcher der beiden Seiten wir sie zuordnen. Auch uns fehlen immer öfter die Kriterien, um zu beurteilen, was “Öffentlichkeit” im Internet überhaupt bedeutet. Ein Umstand, den man anhand der Sprachlosigkeit des CCC während der Street-View-Debatte gut beobachten konnte. (…) Öffentlichkeit im Internet muss vom Anderen ausgehend gedacht werden.

19:15 classless Kulla: It’s leaking everywhere! Buckets and diapers for the incontinent system? Why Transparency and The Truth™ won’t make you free
The truth about domination and exploitation has not been popularized by Wikileaks and other campaigns for transparency: that they need to be abolished in order for humans to be free. The comparably petty truths about this crime or that corruption won’t help with that, even more, focusing on these “well d’uh”s as unraveled secrets is maintaining the top secret status of the obvious: for millions of people, “Access All Areas” is about the food section of the nearest supermarket.

21:00 Ellen Dudley: Designing electronics as social objects
Social objects are an important trigger for conversation and human connection in physical and virtual worlds. In the physical world, they are books, newspapers, mobile phones and stickers on laptops. Online, they are photographs on flickr, tweets, avatars, weapons, or designs on dribbble.com.
They have, over history, influenced our interactions, as their abundance increases the social potential of a space, triggering curiosity and questions and conversations; and their scarcity brings anonymity, and silence.
As builders and hackers, by creating technology fueled social objects, we can tap into the wealth of social objects online that fuel online conversations, and control and decorate the spaces around us, in order to better demonstrate to each other, our personalities, and therefore have more information fed to us in our physical world. The person sitting next to you on the bus, reading a book about golf, may also love arduinos, and processing, but you won’t know that unless you start talking to him – and if you aren’t interested in golf, you may never bother. But if this person wants people to know about his interests, he can “show” this personality trait, using a screen that is attached to his shirt, that sends out “talk to me about” messages depending on his mood, or through a bracelet that has up to date info on his last tweet.
So we can fill our physical spaces with more rich contextual social objects. We can tap into our personalities online, and bring them into our public spaces, where they can be a source for more relevant human-to-human interactions, based on the mutual interests that we choose to divulge to the people around us.
21:45 Jeff Man: How Does Technology Feel?
That means, how does technology make us feel, what kind of psychological dimensions and implications does it have, and also looking at humans and technology as a kind of complex living system that may have emergent “feelings” and “desires” that can’t be derived directly from its constituent parts (humans and machines).

Techno Phantasms and Changing the Operating System: We’ve been swimming or drowning in a Spectacle 2.0 for some time now. XLterrestrials investigate new directions for extricating ourselves from the occupied and highly mediated territories. To change The Operating System in these dangerous times, requires a hybrid of 3 (at least) methodologies: technological, political, and behavioral. The 3rd, as a movement, has been given scant attention, and hasn’t been sufficiently reframed, upgraded and/or hacked since the “techno phantasms” began to colonize the social ecology.
