The Public Knowledge Project

"The Public Knowledge Project is dedicated to improving the scholarly and public quality of research. It operates through a partnership among the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia, the Simon Fraser University Library, the School of Education at Stanford University, and the Canadian Centre for Studies in Publishing at Simon Fraser University. The partnership brings together faculty members, librarians, and graduate students dedicated to exploring whether and how new technologies can be used to improve the professional and public value of scholarly research. Its research program is investigating the social, economic, and technical issues entailed in the use of online infrastructure and knowledge management strategies to improve both the scholarly quality and public accessibility and coherence of this body of knowledge in a sustainable and globally accessible form. It continues to be an active player in the open access movement, as it provides the leading open source software for journal and conference management and publishing. The research and publishing activities of the project have been reviewed and cited in Inside Higher Ed, Nature, New England Journal of Medicine, Science, The Scientist and others"
Carnival and Dialogue in Bakhtin's Poetics of Folklore, by Shanti Elliot

It is not the objects of laughter, though, that
interest Bakhtin s o much a s the perspective laughter brings. L a u g h t e r
emphasizes movement and draws attention to the forms of relationship, rather
than the components within the relationship, which are often fixed in one-
sided, hierarchical meaning: "The serious aspects of class culture are official
and authoritarian; they are combined with violence, prohibitions, limitations, CARNIVAL AND DIALOGUE 131
and always contain an element of fear and of intimidation.. .Laughter, on
the other hand, overcomes fear, for it knows no inhibitions, no limitations"
(90). (130-131)

Laughter works philosophical changes upon life and society. Laughter
erupts from the collective body, but its most important function is internal;
it defends freedom of thought. Thus the life of the body and its relationship
t o the world, represented in the culture of "folk humor," intersects with the
internal processes of perception, thinking, and speaking: the fundamentals
of Bakhtin's philosophy of dialogue. (131)


"Bakhtin's interest in liberating relativity meets less opposition when
he mo v e s f r om carnival t o dialogue. His theories of discourse involve
deflating the myth of impersonal language: "there are no neutral and objective
words" (Bakhtin 1968: 160); rather words hold infinite layers of complexity.
T h e concrete identities of speaker and hearer, and their relationship, each
person's intentions in speaking and in hearing, and the contradictions within
each person, the tone and context of the words, all these elements shape an
utterance more than the literal meaning of the words" (135)

First Sounds

"First Sounds strives to make humanity's earliest sound recordings available to all people for all time.
Humanity's earliest sound recordings constitute a rich sonic heritage of inestimable value to historians of technology, media, and expressive culture. They are among the rarest and least accessible recordings in our audio legacy. When held by institutions for which they are not the primary focus, many go unrecognized by their curators as sound recordings. And even when correctly catalogued, they commonly remain unpreserved and inaccessible due to a lack of funding or expertise".

Un simple efecto óptico que se utiliza para fantasmas escenario y en los instrumentos ópticos, tales como la cámara clara para la elaboración del microscopio, y el taquistoscopio, que presenta imágenes de duración controlada en experimentos visuales. Un espejo que refleja parcial superpone una imagen (u objeto) que se refleja en otra vista a través del vidrio. Al iluminar una atenuación, mientras que el otro lo oscurecemos, uno se ve aparecer como el otro desaparece - y cuando más o menos igual de iluminados ambos son vistos, superpuestos, como fantasmas transparentes. El efecto ocurre a menudo en cristales de las ventanas, especialmente en la noche, aunque, curiosamente, rara vez se notó menos llama la atención sobre pantallas de lámparas, etc reflejadas fuera flotante. Este efecto se puede producir 'platillos voladores'.

Steal this film

Steal this film (website)

"Steal This Film is a film series documenting the movement against intellectual property produced by The League of Noble Peers and released via the BitTorrent peer-to-peer protocol.
Two parts, and one special The Pirate Bay trial edition of the first part, have been released so far, and The League of Noble Peers is working on "Steal this Film - The Movie" and a new project entitled "The Oil of the 21st Century".[2]

Steal This Film (Part 2)[9] (sometimes subtitled 'The Dissolving Fortress') was produced during 2007. It premiered (in a preliminary version) at a conference entitled "The Oil of the 21st Century - Perspectives on Intellectual Property" in Berlin, Germany, November 2007.[10]
Thematically, Part 2 "examines the technological and enforcement end of the copyright wars, and on the way that using the internet makes you a copier, and how copying puts you in legal jeopardy."[11] It discusses Mark Getty's assertion that 'intellectual property is the oil of the 21st century'. Part 2 draws parallels between the impact of the printing press and the internet in terms of making information accessible beyond a privileged group or "controllers". The argument is made that the decentralised nature of the internet makes the enforcement of conventional copyright impossible. Adding to this the internet turns consumers into producers, by way of user generated content, leading to the sharing, mashup and creation of content not motivated by financial gains. This has fundamental implications for market-based media companies. The documentary asks "How will society change" and states "This is the Future - And it has nothing to do with your bank balance".

about ebooks

Augmented reality poetry book can only be read via webcam
"An unlikely marriage of print and digital, Between Page and Screen chronicles a love affair between two characters, P and S. The book has no words, only inscrutable black and white geometric patterns that, when coupled with a webcam, conjure the written word. Reflected on screen, the reader sees him or herself with open book in hand, language springing alive and shape-shifting with each turn of the page.
The story unfolds through a playful and cryptic exchange of letters between P and S as they struggle to define their relationship. Rich with innuendo, anagrams, etymological and sonic affinities between words, Between Page and Screen revels in language and the act of reading.
Originally produced in a limited, letterpress edition of 12, Between Page and Screen is now available from Siglio Press. The first 250 copies are signed and numbered. Save 25% with the coupon code "SPINTO"."
