apophenia: I want my cyborg life

My colleagues aren't that much older than me but they come from a different set of traditions. They aren't used to speaking to a room full of blue-glow faces. And they think it's utterly fascinating that I poll my twitterverse about constructs of fairness while hearing a speaker talk about game theory. Am I learning what the speaker wants me to learn? Perhaps not. But I am learning and thinking and engaging. I'm 31 years old. I've been online since I was a teen. I've grown up with this medium and I embrace each new device that brings me closer to being a cyborg. I want information at my fingertips now and always. There's no doubt that I'm not mainstream. But I also feel really badly for the info-driven teens and college students out there being told that learning can only happen when they pay attention to an audio-driven lecture in a classroom setting. I read books during my classroom (blatantly not paying attention).

TP: Sicherheit statt Freiheit

Der Index in seinen verschiedenen Ausprägungen war schon immer sehr eng mit dem Zugang zu Information sowie mit deren Zerstörung und der Kontrolle verbunden. Im Folgenden soll versucht werden, die historischen Kontinuitäten in der Debatte um den freien Zugang zu Information und die Informationshoheit aufzuzeigen. Dazu wird neben den klassischen Werkzeugen der Wissenschaft auch das Stilmittel der Satire eingesetzt, um Sachverhalte besonders deutlich herauszuarbeiten. Ich bitte den geneigten Leser, mir dies zu verzeihen.
