My Keynote with Metahaven at Transmediale tomorrow at 1700transmediale.de/content/keynot…

Planetary computation and its geographies can be modeled as a coherent platform, a vertical software/hardware "stack". In his forthcoming book, The Stack: On Software and Sovereignty, Benjamin Bratton explores this topography as a geopolitical framework, one defined by accidents and contradictions as much as by inventions and efficiencies. The design group Metahaven's forthcoming publication, Black Transparency, focuses on the political and aesthetic regimes of contemporary transparency, and their coexistence with networks, institutions, and various (dis)organised groups. The latest in their series of ongoing collaborative discussions, Metahaven and Bratton will take turns using the stack's six layers—Earth, Cloud, City, Address, Interface, and User—offering proposals on the future of each.

UN: Palestinian children tortured, used as human shields by Israel http://t.co/SxYyAPoj4C

Most Palestinian children arrested are accused of having thrown stones, an offense which can carry a penalty of up to 20 years in prison, 

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/.premium-1.530993#.UuxdiuSiDi0.twitter


Israeli soldiers had used Palestinian children to enter potentially dangerous buildings before them and to stand in front of military vehicles to deter stone-throwing, it said.
"Almost all those using children as human shields and informants have remained unpunished and the soldiers convicted for having forced at gunpoint a nine-year-old child to search bags suspected of containing explosives only received a suspended sentence of three months and were demoted," it said.

I believe in the elimination of borders and free commerce as a route to peace.  Barriers necessarily imply violence.

California regulator seeks to shut down ‘learn to code’ bootcamps http://t.co/94D2CTidR4 via @VentureBeat > gov would better offer good edu

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/petervan/status/429626896192524288

These bootcamps have not yet been approved by the BPPE and are therefore being classified as unlicensed postsecondary educational institutions that must seek compliance or be forcibly shut down.

3 exercises for helping students improve their news literacy ('crap detection') skills:bit.ly/1gAKqWM #edchat

How can these coexist? How can students be so technologically savvy while also displaying their lack of basic skills for navigating the digital world?
because if they are in the system... they are beholden... entranced.. (whether out of good or I'll really doesn't matter to this) .. to the crap not being detected.. called out... that being... compulsory content et al...

Students today face a greater challenge in evaluating information than their parents or grandparents did at their age

true... because of all the... too big to know ... info..
but more so... because we've taught / coerced the ability to learn (part of which is crap detect) out of them..
if we hadn't taken their turtle shell in the first place.. they'd be fine. knowing what to do when they don't know what to do ness

we insist we teach them how to read a language.. at 5... that they taught themselves at 1 ish ness


And even though digital natives have grown up in the information age, many of the adults and institutions in their lives are still grappling with its implications. In other words, it's likely that the kind of credulity we see in young people reflects our own collective uncertainty about what we encounter on the digital frontier. 


exactly... but beyond likely.
moving more toward abusive and criminal..

mostly ...because the mere overwhelmingness to us is keeping us from knowing...lstening to them..
to innate curiosities... that would then teach and pd us..

we are indeed missing it.  ness

This isn't to suggest any shortcoming on the part of today's teachers. Without the classroom time, quality teaching materials and professional development opportunities in the emerging field of news literacy, teachers cannot reasonably be expected to guide their students to achieve these new skills.

ok. saying this in love.
.. crap detection..

the pd is them.. messy.. alive.. in front of us..

or better yet...
in the city.
as the day.

News literacy is a relatively new field in media studies that focuses on defining and teaching the skills that citizens need to evaluate the credibility of the information they encounter, and on examining the role that credible information plays in a representative democracy.

how about simply... re validating their gut.

talk to self daily.
listen to that.

it is legal.
our legalities are most often the criminal. aka elephant.. in the room...no...?

It's also a subject that most students find inherently engaging and relevant. In fact, a recent study found that 84 percent of young people between the ages of 15 and 25 say they would benefit from learning these skills.

and natural... perhaps...?
might that not be the intrigue...?

much needed everyday they are forced to walk into school...
no..?


ie:kid saying... when will I ever need crap detection...?  give me more algebra..

Give prizes or extra credit to those who get it right, or work collaboratively to seek answers as a clas
lovely. 
crap.

kids have been alerting us to crap for years... no..?

we've even made profit off that... when will I ever use this... et al..

perhaps we just shhhh. and learn from them... learn from ourselves (not cc, not money) for a while... no...?

we have all we need. and we're missing it..

often.. sadly/tragically.. in the name of suppose edge/provocative thinking...
