Minha esposa é #professora da #redepublica de #ensino, seu dia-a-dia abarca isso e muito mais. Mas a resposta do #poderpublico é sempre a mesma: no #Brasil, #educação não é solução, é problema.

Acuados por confrontos e ameaças do tráfico, docentes abandonam as salas de aula

Para el tecnocapitalismo el #espionaje es consecuencia de la democratización de los medios de producción e información

... y como dice Isaac Hacksimov, "Algo se hizo mal (como sociedad),(...) No sólo Microsoft, en general la avaricia de compatir versus colaborar impidió tener sistemas fiables en un mundo conectado, es desastroso."

Hace un tiempo publiqué una lista con los 10 bugs más bizarros de systemd. Ha pasado algo de tiempo y han surgido nuevos bugs, algunos peligrosos, y otros un tanto delirantes. A la luz de los acontecimientos, creo que esta lista merece una actualización.

Lila Downs : Some people call me Mexican, but I consider myself Native American, Oaxacan, Mexican American, Chicana and a citizen of the world

-> via : Conversation & Performance on Democracy Now!

There’s a blue-eyed devil man, / Thinks he’s king of the world / He’s a bully, a salesman
Selling fear and hate // Who do you think you are? / He plays us with his hate / Turns man against man / But it’s really not a game

How did the world ever work without Facebook? (https://danielpocock...

How did the world ever work without Facebook?

Debian Developer and FSFE Fellow Daniel Pocock rejects any Facebook or Twitter usage, but takes a rather critical stance toward Diaspora and other free networks, too. Worth a read!

Almost every day, somebody tells me there is no way they can survive without some social media like Facebook or Twitter. Otherwise mature adults fearful that without these dubious services, they would have no human contact ever again, they would die of hunger and the sky would come crashing down too.

It is particularly disturbing for me to hear this attitude from community activists and campaigners. These are people who aspire to change the world, but can you really change the system using the tools the system gives you?

Kettling has never been easier

When street protests erupt in major cities such as London, the police build fences around the protesters, cutting them off from the rest of the world. They become an island in the middle of the city, like a construction site or broken down bus that everybody else goes around. The police then set about arresting one person at a time, taking their name and photograph and then slowly letting them leave in different directions. This strategy is called kettling.

Facebook helps kettle activists in their arm chair. The police state can gather far more data about them, while their impact is even more muted than if they ventured out of their home.

[...]

The news media deliberately over-rates social media

News media outlets, including TV, radio and print, gain a significant benefit crowd-sourcing live information, free of charge, from the public on social media. It is only logical that they will cheer on social media sites and give them regular attention. Have you noticed that whenever Facebook's publicity department makes an announcement, the media are quick to publish it ahead of more significant stories about social or economic issues that impact our lives? Why do you think the media puts Facebook up on a podium like this, ahead of all other industries, if the media aren't getting something out of it too?

The tail doesn't wag the dog

One particular example is the news media's fascination with Donald Trump's Twitter account. Some people have gone as far as suggesting that this billionaire could have simply parked his jet and spent the whole of 2016 at one of his golf courses sending tweets and he would have won the presidency anyway. Suggesting that Trump's campaign revolved entirely around Twitter is like suggesting the tail wags the dog.

The reality is different: Trump has been a prominent public figure for decades, both in the business and entertainment world. During his presidential campaign, he had at least 220 major campaign rallies attended by over 1.2 million people in the real world. Without this real-world organization and history, the Twitter account would have been largely ignored like the majority of Twitter accounts.

[...]

Facebook alternatives: the ultimate trap?

Numerous free, open source projects have tried to offer an equivalent to Facebook and Twitter. GNU social, Diaspora and identi.ca are some of the more well known examples.

Trying to persuade people to move from Facebook to one of these platforms rarely works. In most cases, Metcalfe's law suggests the size of Facebook will suck them back in like the gravity of a black hole.

To help people really beat these monstrosities, the most effective strategy is to help them live without social media, whether it is proprietary or not. The best way to convince them may be to give it up yourself and let them see how much you enjoy life without it.

¿Te plagian, y qué?

¿Te plagian, y qué?

Crea, sin apropiarte de tu obra

¿Cómo vivir en esta dictadura? Arrodíllate de pie, grita sin voz, danza inmóvil, sé un preso libre

Hay un sábado de común denominadores (https://sursiendo.com/blog/20...

Hay un sábado de común denominadores

-Esta semana se publicó en México que el #GobiernoEspía. Sin embargo, Con sus declaraciones, EPN condena al fracaso la investigación por #GobiernoEspía y amenaza a quienes han denunciado. Ha tenido mucha repercusión, pero no hay que quedarse con los brazos cruzados, El gobierno mexicano ha sistematizado el espionaje de sus ciudadanos. Acá: Dibujos e ilustraciones sobre #GobiernoEspía. Conocimos un poco más el programa espía que ha utilizado, Pegasus.

-Cada vez más gobiernos se apuntan al control de los redes y la tecnologías, cada nos acercamos más a las formas de Corea del Norte: Tablets sin internet: cómo es el sistema operativo de Kim para los norcoreanos. Y aprovechamos para recomendar la lectura de “El imaginario del Estado-nación no es un imaginario alternativo al neoliberalismo”, entrevista a Christian Laval y Pierre Dardot sobre su último libro: El neoliberalismo contra la democracia.

-Por ello, pongámonos manos a la obra, a ver otras posibilidades: ¿Fatalista? Ciberseguridad: la soberanía y nuestras vidas están en riesgo. Y usemos otras herramientas digitales, más libres y seguras: ¿Qué frena el uso del Software libre en las computadoras personales?

-Ejemplos hay muchos, como en Guatemala. Software libre para una educación liberadora (Audios). O como Tejiendo ciberfeminismo desde Nicaragua. También nos llegó la edición 128 de Caribe Nuestro: una experiencia de ciberfeminismo afrocubano, con la entrevista a Sandra Abd’Allah-Alvarez Ramírez, autora del blog “Negra cubana tenía que ser”. Porque como dice Lili_Anaz, “O que se tornou a internet é tudo, menos um território livre” (portugués).

-Más sobre estos temas: Usos creativos feministas de las redes sociales, un amplio documento de mucho interés. O «La chispa de los movimientos»: El estado de nuestros movimientos feministas, con animaciones que “exploran los temas principales que enfrentan en la actualidad nuestros movimientos”.

-Para terminar, una recomendación: escuchen el programa de radio Mar de fueguitos, en el último capítulo tratan sobre Violencias y discriminaciones contra la comunidad LGTBI de El Salvador, y también sobre cibermovimientos.

Salud!

Sci-Fi #Radio at Internet #Archive

Sci-Fi #Radio at Internet #Archive

Sci-Fi Radio was an anthology of #magazine short story adaptations, with a pretty good choice of the stories.

https://archive.org/details/Sci-fiRadio


via Open Culture :

if you're wondering what the 1980s delivered, then tune into #Sci-Fi Radio, a series of 26 half-hour shows which aired on NPR Playhouse, starting in 1989. Some of the adapted stories include: "Sales Pitch" and "Imposter" by Philip K. Dick, "Diary of the Rose" and "Field of Vision" by Ursula K. LeGuin, "Wall of Darkness" by Arthur C. Clarke, and "Frost and Fire" by Ray Bradbury.
