Hypothes.is Notebook

As I use my domain here as a commonplace book of sorts, below is a list of my highlights and comments across the web using the Hypothes.is annotation tool. It’s made possible by a plugin made by Kris Shaffer and discussed at Hypothes.is Aggregator ― a WordPress plugin and Hypothes.is as a public research notebook.

Aggregating the Decentralized Social Web

There are actually three problems to solve, reading, which is relatively easy,  posting, which is harder, and social graph management, which is quite complex

I might submit that posting is possibly the easiest of the three and that the reader problem is the most difficult. This is based on the tremendous number of platforms and CMSs on which one can post, but the dearth of feed readers in existence.

Managing your social graph

Something akin to a following list could help this. Or a modified version of OPML subscription lists could work. They just need to be opened up a tad. Some are working on the idea of an open microsub spec which could be transformative as well: https://indieweb.org/Microsub-spec

Aggregating the Decentralized Social Web

How do we decentralize the web without so decentralizing our own social presence that it becomes unmanageable?

You've already got a huge headstart in doing this with your own website. Why bother to have thousands of accounts when you could have one? Then, as you suggest, password protected RSS feeds out to others could allow you to control which audiences get to see which content on your own site.

It looks as if Withknown has made some progress in this area with syndication plugins.

WordPress has **lots** of ways to syndicate content too.

Subscribing to my personal timeline(s) with my favorite RSS reader would bring everything together,

I've written some thoughts about how feed readers could continue to evolve for the open web here: http://boffosocko.com/2017/06/09/how-feed-readers-can-grow-market-share-and-take-over-social-media/

listed items chronologically independent of source

Having a variety of ways to chop and dice up content are really required. We need more means of filtering content, not less.

Good things don't scale · Woman. Legend.Blog

Then, if the forum or community is really good, something called eternal September happens. Eternal September means a lot of new people who don’t know the context and rules of the community come flooding in and overwhelm the community norms. I’ve seen this with every single good message board I’ve been part of: my pregnancy message board, Facebook when it was just for people I knew in college, and Twitter. I learned so much from these communities, but as soon as people found out they were good, and were are opened up to an intimately large amount of people, the community feel left, immediately, and got swallowed up by the noise of the internet.

I wonder if there's a multiplication factor to the Dunbar number for which, much beyond it, society begins to fall apart and become less "good". Perhaps 150x150? Iceland's 330,000 seems like a reasonable lower bound, but one could look at places like Twitter and Facebook or some of the other examples she mentions to find a better lower bound. I suspect a full network map of Twitter in early 2009 might be a good data set to study. Naturally, I suspect the upper bound will be highly dependent upon the structure of the network (and sub networks).

we can’t really stop the national news from making us freaked out about remote things that have no impact on our daily life.

Reminds me a tad of the thesis in The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Comsumption by Clay A. Johnson

homogenous

Maybe homogeneousness of a different kind is the answer? Homogeneously civil perhaps?

The Next Platform

Commonality means that people will not have to pay to get access to the new public sphere: all will be free and public property. Commonality means also transversality: de-silo and cross-pollination.

The Next Platform

Openness is on the rise because it maximizes the improvement of goods and services, foster trust and support collaborative engagement.

The Next Platform

Transparency is the very basis of trust and the precondition of authentic dialogue. Data and people (including the administrators of a platform), should be traceable and audit-able. Transparency should be reciprocal, without distinction between rulers and ruled. Such transparency will ultimately be the basis of reflexive collective intelligence, allowing teams and communities of any size to observe and compare their cognitive activity

The trouble with this is the post-truth political climate in which basic "facts" are under debate. What will the battle between these two groups look like and how can actual facts win out in the end. Will the future Eloi and Morlocks be the descendants between them?

The Next Platform

We need a new kind of public sphere: a platform in the cloud where data and metadata would be our common good, dedicated to the recording and collaborative exploitation of our memory in the service of collective intelligence. According to the current zeitgeist, the core values orienting the construction of this new public sphere should be: openness, transparency and commonality

The Next Platform

The practice of writing in ancient palace-temples gave birth to government as a separate entity. Alphabet and paper allowed the emergence of merchant city-states and the expansion of literate empires. The printing press, industrial economy, motorized transportation and electronic media sustained nation-states.

The Next Platform

The digital revolution will foster new forms of government. We discuss political problems in a global public space taking advantage of the web and social media. The majority of humans live in interconnected cities and metropoles. Each urban node wants to be an accelerator of collective intelligence, a smart city.

he needed to be careful about setting big goals because he “worked for a guy who, if you don’t meet your goals, he’ll so skewer you.”

the end of this statement being, "so why bother setting goals at all?"

I would like to see contributions for which I am really interested, which stimulate me to think, in which I can learn something.

Humanizing the Web

I want a human curated web experience. I don’t want my experience curated by mysterious algorithms.

What if we build the internet we always wanted?

Remember when the internet was going to usher in an age of peace and understanding because humans would be able to communicate with each other? It didn't happen.

What didn't happen? The age of peace and understanding, or the ability for humans to communicate with each other freely?

Bechdel test - Wikipedia

Vocativ's authors also found that the films that passed the test earned a total of $4.22 billion in the United States, while those that failed earned $2.66 billion in total, leading them to conclude that a way for Hollywood to make more money might be to "put more women onscreen."[35] A 2014 study by FiveThirtyEight based on data from about 1,615 films released from 1990 to 2013 concluded that the median budget of films that passed the test was 35% lower than that of the others. It found that the films that passed the test had about a 37% higher return on investment (ROI) in the United States, and the same ROI internationally, compared to films that did not pass the test.[37]
