Bantugan Quiapo, in the Philippines, has long been associated with folk culture and much of it revolves around the Catholic Quiapo Church. The Golden Mosque of the Muslims on the other side of Quezon Boulevard, just across Quiapo Church, has also become a center of a distinct culture that is more linked to media and digital economy.
But what are those territories? This study hopes to start the navigation of this fast expanding domain. This research hopes to help redirect attention away. On the Digitisation of Historical Photographic Archives , Gail Baylis What is the relationship between online access to historical photographic archives and use: in what ways does access correspond to use and how can we understand this relationship?
This paper aims to address these issues by focusing on the digitisation of one photographic archive. Typosquatting, Transmission, and the Globalization of Error , Paul Benzon In this paper, I argue for a critical reading of typosquatting as a point of entry for mapping the politics of global data storage and transmission. Typosquatting in particular plays upon the possibility of error in the typing of Website addresses—for example, registering yuotube. In playing upon such potential errors, typosquatting sheds light on the textually grounded arbitrariness of the World Wide Web as a structure of storage and transmission.
I address the implications of typosquatting on both microscopic and macroscopic levels. Digital Editions of Literary Journals in the Austrian Academy Corpus , Hanno Biber , Evelyn Breiteneder , Anne Burdick , Karlheinz Moerth The AAC is a corpus research unit at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna concerned with establishing and exploring large electronic text corpora and with conducting scholarly research in the field of corpora and digital text collections and editions. This paper presents an innovative digital edition and the potential of word searches within this edition as well as the basic elements and features of the corpus research approach followed by the Austrian Academy Corpus AAC.
Among the sources are more than million running words of various forms. StoryTrek originated in an Australian initiative to develop digital interfaces for aboriginal songlines. The Fragmented Frame: the Poetics of the Split-Screen , Jim Bizzocchi The split-screen has a long, yet relatively under-theorized, place in the history of the moving image. The use of this technique has never disappeared, but despite a brief flowering in the late sixties and early seventies, it has generally remained a minor trope in the poetics of the moving image.
There is little theoretical work, however, on the poetics or cinematic design of the split-screen. This paper argues for a robust approach to the deconstruction and analysis of split-screen sequences. This approach examines the phenomenon at three levels: the narrative, the structural and the graphic. Most searches have to be based on titles, but the titles of individual media files are chosen by the uploader, and is thereby dependent on choice of language, spelling etc.
What happens with the idea of a media product as an object or an artistic work when it becomes so difficult to predict what the media file includes already at the outset? Interacting with personal screens during a lecture or for another live event has become commonplace and, as a result, the economy of attention that defines these situations has changed. Is it possible to pay attention when sending a text message or surfing the web?
For that matter, does distraction always detract from the learning that takes place in these environments?
Live at the Tabernacle Reviews
In this article, we ask questions concerning the texture and shape of this emerging economy of attention. It has become increasingly difficult for the music business, for example, to charge for content i. This phenomenon is not only restricted to the music business, but extend also to the on-line gaming business, where texts become a means to reach users who can then be sold to advertisers. Truth and Trust: Voice and Epistemological Crisis in Seventeenth-Century Publications , Marianne Borch The dissemination of texts in the format of printed books radically changes the epistemological premises for the authorial voice.
Strategic Agency in an Age of Limitless Information , Jonah Bossewitch , Aram Sinnreich To what extent is it possible — or desirable — to disengage from the growing cultural database? Can we disentangle the issues surrounding localized record keeping from globalized control over the archives?

Braun New media spaces and traditional journalism share far more qualities than are usually appreciated in the literature. Since the s, both scholars and practitioners examining the gatekeeper function of the news media have sought to explain why some issues and events become newsworthy while others remain obscure.
Galtung and Ruge based their twelve original news values on principles from psychology and human behavior research. The way journalists select and publish news items is not so different from the way the rest of us perceive and discuss the world. The mental processes that unfolded in the press as gatekeeping were, in some sense, just manifestations of our universal human condition. Sports Fans, Media Technology, and Participatory Texts , Mark Bresnan The promise that technological advances would put fans themselves in control of sports broadcasts remains unfulfilled.
some kind of community
I argue that the advent of a more autonomous and participatory sports fan culture has in fact occurred; however, it has not been enabled not by advances in television technology, but instead by renewed interest in a decidedly low-technology media format: the single-author text. What Not to Save: The Future of Ephemera , Alison Byerly Librarians and archivists know how valuable ephemera can be to scholars, particularly cultural historians.
By looking at changing notions of how we categorize, and ascribe value to, different forms of text, this paper will explore the increasing complexity of decisions about what is or is not worth saving. It will suggest that the social, aesthetic, cultural, and legal implications of decisions that are currently being made by default warrant a more deliberate approach to these questions. From Barbershop to BlackPlanet: The Construction of Hush Harbors in Cyberspace , John Edward Campbell This study confronts the question of whether online spaces can satisfy the political and cultural functions hush harbors have historically played in the African-American community.
To address such a question, this study draws upon data gathered during a three-year study of the largest commercial community site targeting the African-American community — BlackPlanet. The goal is to discuss to what extent the medium the technology is affecting the means of production of websites dedicated to art exhibitions. It is unquestionable that a major result has been the expansion of access free and open to information beyond the art milieu, reaching audiences across cultures, geographies and interests.
But, are these web sites giving rise to other forms of experiences? And as we wait for technology to catch up can a multi disciplinary collaborative approach between designers, artists and curators serve as a catalyst to create, mediate and disseminate in new and thoughtful ways? Where to next? Imagine biofed virtual worlds where the passive, subconscious and otherwise unpredictable embodied responses of the audience affect both the virtual world, and future players. I suggest the zenith of this development will be when we have genuine living scripts in virtual worlds: where players experience augments the [virtual] world history.
So the concept of media transmission and storage changes to media pollination. We began development of River City in with National Science Foundation funding, and for almost a decade over 15, students and teachers have used various versions. We will discuss findings about student learning, lessons learned about the use of MUVEs for education, and our plans for future research. We will also suggest design heuristics for others building virtual worlds for education. Coffey Bringing scripture into a cultural-religious formation of adolescents of a developed country quickly requires close attention to that interface between sacred texts and media.
On the other hand, their media facility would be expected to diminish that interest. As Innis so carefully showed, text favours durability while modern technological media magnify transmission. But the interest in scripture at a moment where digital media with all its speed and volume is omnipresent belies such evisceration. This first work in the series concerns John Wesley's Powell's explorations of the Colorado River Basin and subsequent representations of it.
Users join Powell on the voyage in a work blending fact, fiction, illustration and photography. The presentation about this work includes a discussion of how differing media have been used to shape popular perceptions about the environment and environmental issues.
By , that network of roads crisscrossed the entire nation and its territories and kept individuals throughout regularly connected with each other through newspapers and other correspondence. My paper explores that legacy, and the major influence of those routes when it came to boundary-spanning capabilities, the rapid sharing of information, and sustained linkages between far-flung population centers.

Youth and Media Consumption: A New Reader Arises , Magda Rodrigues da Cunha The ways youth currently relate to communication technologies may provide evidence regarding the appropriations of media among youth in the near future. In the pursuit of such evidence, we initially investigate the history of media appropriation by youth.
Furthermore, this research analyzes the use of portable technologies by some of these people for the consumption of the same contents mentioned. Digital Screens in Public Space: Advertising, Actors, and the Remaking of Place , Leif Dahlberg The paper takes looks at advertising and screen culture, focusing on the increasing display of moving images on screens all sizes in out-of-home advertising, and the implications this has both on lived, social space and on old and new media. The paper discusses the movement of advertising from media used and consumed primarily at home printed newpapers and television to media consumed in public and hybrid spaces.
Radical Potential: Social Aspects of Cinema 3. But traditional barriers to entry and hierarchies are crumbling with falling costs and a growing literacy in rich media. The ubiquity and accessibility has changed how we use moving images. From a form of ritual entertainment and art, moving images are increasingly becoming a means for interactive communication and means of negotiating power.
In this paper, I will present some examples of who is making movies, what they are making and for what purposes in order to demonstrate how the potential for moving image communication is changing.
Funded by a Ford Foundation grant, the weekly seminar was organized by the little-known English professor Marshall McLuhan, anthropologist Edmund Carpenter, political economist Tom Easterbrook, and urban planner Jaqueline Tyrwhitt. Because this is a revolution in our understanding of the nervous system and its environment, the revolution will work both ways - from the arts to science as well as from science to the arts - as we incorporate the application of these discoveries back into the creative process and the technologies that support them.
Meanwhile, private collectors have taken advantage of digital technologies to compile their own DIY television archives. Thanks to these developments, researchers now enjoy unprecedented access to the television of the past. My goals are to inaugurate a dialogue between archivists, historians, and collectors on the topic of what is archivable, and to encourage all three parties to broaden their conceptions of the objects of television history. One Code to Rule Them All? Re-Constructing Knowledge through the Digital Suzanne de Castell lead author , Jennifer Jenson , Nicholas Taylor The technological developments of the last two decades—during which time digital technologies have become increasingly ubiquitous, mundane, and intertwined into almost all aspects our daily lives—has brought about a fundamental epistemic shift, a transformation not only to our notions of what constitutes work, play, learning and sociality, and what separates these activities if they remain separate at all: see de Castell and Jenson, , but to our notions of what counts as knowledge.
Our focus is on describing and illustrating a digital research tool, MAP, which seeks to bridge qualitative and quantitative analysis. Notebooks, Videogames and Blogs as Evocative Objects: Building Digital Schools , Hector del Castillo , Pilar Lacasa , Rut Martinez , Laura Mendez According to Turkle , evocative objects place theories in a concrete spatial and temporal dimension, embodied in widely distributed institutions and socio-cultural relationships among individuals.
Acting in classrooms as ethnographers, we observed evocative objects that are rooted in specific practices and agglutinate mental representations and values. Mobile Memento's: Expanded Archives, Fragmented Access , Imar de Vries Personal wireless communication devices such as mobile telephones are regularly presented as enabling technologies with emancipating powers, giving instant and ubiquitous access to people and information resources which would not have been as easily — if at all — available previously.
The emphasis is often on reaching harmony and agreement through the exchange of knowledge, and on making progress through the fusion of ideas. What easily becomes 'depresented' in such imagery, however, is that, while an enormous amount of visual, textual and aural data is captured by millions of mobile device users every day, only a small fragment of that data is made available for query on a large scale. My aim in this paper will be to conceptualize this fragmented archive of mobile memento's as a phenomenon that prompts us to reconsider the more traditional meanings of storage and transmission, and to investigate the ways in which new forms of data disclosure such as geotagging, geocaching and mobile-augmented reality are to be understood in relation to popular ideas about omniscience and ever-present data clouds.
The Digitization of Memory: Blessing or Curse? But now there is some empirical hint that digital media is a threat to memory. Software and hardware evolve in such a fast way that incompatibility between formats seems inescapable; digital media storage media like CD, DVD or even hard drives do not last for more than 20 years and can be easily deleted; and internet and mail communication tend to be elusive as internet sites vanish without being archived.
In which ways does digital media effect cultural memory and how can these changes be explained through media theory? Historical Infrastructures for Web Archiving: Annotation of Ephemeral Collections for Research , Meghan Dougherty , Charles van den Heuvel There is a growing gulf between policies shared between global and national institutions creating web archives and the practices of researchers making use of the archives. The current search paradigm in web archiving access tools is built primarily on retrieval, not discovery.
