We all know monopolies are bad. We even have laws against them that sometimes get enforced. However, today we have new kinds of monopolies that affect us without us even noticing them for what they truly are. And technology plays a central role. When we look at social networks we see them usually as a single market, maybe divided between full-blown ones and microblogs. Thus we see Facebook and Google+ competing on a single market that seems to be divided between many players, including a small slice for Diaspora, for example. Competition only works where there is a real possibility to choose a product or service. For example, competition between family car makers works, because customers can actually choose different family cars and yet be able to travel to the same places on the same roads, and using the same kinds of fuels. Similarly, competition in areas of web browsers and e-mail providers works because regardless of which web browser you choose or with which e-mail provider you set-up your account, you will be able to access the whole web and to contact users of all other providers. This, however, is not the case with closed social networks. Facebook users cannot contact Google+ users and vice-versa. Technically, from users' perspective, Facebook and Google+ are actually separate markets, each of those with a single monopolist provider (Facebook and Google, respectively). Once we start seeing technomonopolies for what they are, we can start exploring their consequences, in the same terms we consider consequences of any other kind of monopoly on any other market. http://events.ccc.de/congress/2013/Fahrplan/events/5319.html Day: 2013-12-28 Start time: 23:30 Duration: 00:30 Room: Saal G Track: Ethics, Society & Politics Language: en

David Carr On 2013 In Media | On Point with Tom Ashbrook

Press freedom, Edward Snowden, and the Pope as Person of the Year. We’ll look back at a year in media with New York Times columnist David Carr. The biggest media stories in 2013 included Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos buying The Washington Post, NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s surveillance revelations and the rise of viral positive media sites like Upworthy. (AP) It’s the information age, and a big year for media – news media.  Silicon Valley moving into the biz.  Amazon’s Jeff Bezos buying the Washington Post.  Twitter and Facebook and Buzzfeed becoming a generation’s grazing ground for news.  New York Times media and culture critic David Carr has as big and knowing an eye on the realm as anyone out there.  He’s watching Time magazine name the pope “Person of the Year.”  NSA leaker Edward Snowden break spying revelations.  ”60 Minutes” apologize.  China squeeze reporters.  This hour On Point:  The year in media, with hot thinker, observer, David Carr.  – Tom Ashbrook Guest David Carr, media and culture critic for the New York Times, where he writes the Media Equation column. (@carr2n) From Tom’s Reading List New York Times: Where Freedom of the Press Is Muffled –”As Mr. Biden — and Thomas Jefferson before him — pointed out, a free press is essential to a functioning democracy. Whether it’s Beijing or Britain, it might be a good time for governments to stop trying to prevent the news media from doing its job and address what that work has revealed.” The Atlantic: I Thought I Knew How Big Upworthy Was on Facebook: Then I Saw This – “The most impressive thing about Upworthy is that it publishes just 225 articles a month, according to this data. That’s one for every 508 articles on Yahoo! The site is so much more dominant than other news sites on Facebook that when you graph its Facebook-shares-per-article, it looks like a skyscraper dropped into a desert. Upworthy averages about 75,000 Facebook likes per article, 12x more than BuzzFeed.” The New Yorker: The President And the Press — “It has been apparent for several years that the Obama Administration has departed from the First Amendment norms established during the seven Presidencies since Branzburg. Holder has overseen six prosecutions of government officials for aiding the press, more than were brought by all previous Administrations combined. Even after the A.P. controversy erupted, Obama said that he would make ‘no apologies’ for zealous press-leak investigations, since unauthorized disclosures of secrets jeopardized the lives of the soldiers and the spies he sent in danger’s way.” close http://onpoint.wbur.org/2013/12/12/david-carr-new-york-times-media

Cyber-Bullying Takes A Very Real Toll

12-year old Rebecca Ann Sedwick committed suicide. Her young tormentors arrested. We’ll look at cyberbullying and the law.

Co-author of “School Climate 2.0: Preventing Cyberbullying and Sexting One Classroom at a Time” and “Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying.” (@JustinPatchin)

Sue Shellenbarger, columnist for The Wall Street Journal.

From Tom’s Reading List

Wall Street Journal: The Teen Empathy Gap – ”‘Cognitive empathy,’ or the mental ability to take others’ perspective, begins rising steadily in girls at age 13, according to a six-year study published recently in Developmental Psychology. But boys don’t begin until age 15 to show gains in perspective-taking, which helps in problem-solving and avoiding conflict. Adolescent males actually show a temporary decline, between ages 13 and 16, in a related skill—affective empathy, or the ability to recognize and respond to others’ feelings, according to the study, co-authored by Jolien van der Graaff, a doctoral candidate in the Research Centre Adolescent Development at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. Fortunately, the boys’ sensitivity recovers in the late teens. Girls’ affective empathy remains relatively high and stable through adolescence.”

Slate: Two Girls Charged With Felony Stalking in Rebecca Sedwick Suicide Case. That’s Not the Answer — “While I know that it’s very hard to try to feel compassion rather than loathing for the 12 and the 14 year old in this case right now—and that asking for it will be scorned as making excuses for them—I do think we have to try to understand what was going on behind those loathsome posts.”

Orlando Sentinel: Sheriff in Rebecca Sedwick suicide: Cut cyberbullying cord — “A day after Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced the arrest of two girls in the Rebecca Ann Sedwick suicide he appeared on the national television morning shows warning parents of the dangers of cyberbulling. He also vowed to prosecute anyone – children or adults – who commits such crimes. ‘People deserve to live a healthy, normal life,’ Judd told Robin Roberts on ’Good Morning America’. ‘We will prosecute anyone we can prove has bullied or stalked someone.’”

Facebook May Not Be So Friendly For Those With Low Self-Esteem : Shots - Health Blog : NPR

They complain a bit more than everyone else, and they often share their negative views and feelings when face to face with friends and acquaintances. Researchers wondered whether those behavior patterns would hold true online. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2012/03/26/149237888/facebook-may-not-be-so-friendly-for-those-with-low-self-esteem

Breaking Down Walls, a Decentralised Social Web?

The web is founded on open, decentralised principles. This means anyone can build a site that can link to any other, without any need for proprietary technology. No one owns e-mail, usenet or http, but social services like Facebook and Twitter are—for the most part—silo'd businesses with their own networks and proprietary APIs. You can join them together in code, but they're not in any way 'interoperable'. This panel will explore why large and centralized seems to dominate, whether it's a bug or a feature. We'll take a critical eye at new attempts at building distributed social web products like Diaspora. We won't be focusing on the technical specifications as much as the end user experience and the business models that could support them. If a distributed service wouldn't be fun, easy to use or profitable, then is there really any point in building one...? Evan Prodromou, CTO, StatusNet Inc Founder and creator of the StatusNet open source social platform, Evan is the co-chair of the W3C's working group on federated social web technologies. http://schedule.sxsw.com/2012/events/event_IAP11746
