Perspectivas críticas sobre a Web 2.0 | Critical perspectives on Web 2.0

O António Granado recomendou e eu fui ler. A mais recente edição da First Monday traz uma série de artigos sobre a web 2.0, debruçando-se especialmente sobre as fronteiras entre “produtores e utilizadores, consumo e participação, autoridade e amadorismo, diversão e trabalho, dados e a rede, realidade e virtualidade.” Ou seja, como o que antes pertencia a uns pertence agora a todos, mas de que forma?

O artigo que me está a captar mais a atenção é o de Søren Mørk Petersen, “Loser Generated Content: From Participation to Exploitation”.

Para quem estuda e para quem se interessa.

António Granado recommended it, and i read it. The most recent edition of First Monday has a series of articles about web 2.0, that observes especially the borders between “users and producers, consumption and participation, authority and amateurism, play and work, data and the network, reality and virtuality.” Which is, what once belonged to a few, now belongs to everybody, but in which way?

The article that has really caught my eye is one by Søren Mørk Petersen, “Loser Generated Content: From Participation to Exploitation”.

For those who study and care about this.

The rhetoric surrounding Web 2.0 infrastructures presents certain cultural claims about media, identity, and technology. It suggests that everyone can and should use new Internet technologies to organize and share information, to interact within communities, and to express oneself. It promises to empower creativity, to democratize media production, and to celebrate the individual while also relishing the power of collaboration and social networks.

 

Preface: Critical Perspectives on Web 2.0

Zimmer, Michael. “Preface: Critical Perspectives on Web 2.0” First Monday [Online], Volume 13 Number 3

 

In this article, some of the critical aspects of Web 2.0 are mapped in relation to labor and the production of user generated content. For many years the Internet was considered an apt technology for subversion of capitalism by the Italian post–Marxists. What we have witnessed, however, is that the Internet functions as a double–edged sword; the infrastructure does foster democracy, participation, joy, creativity and sometimes creates zones of piracy. But, at the same time, it has become evident how this same infrastructure also enables companies easily to piggyback on user generated content. Different historical and contemporary examples are provided to map how the architecture of participation sometimes turns into an architecture of exploitation.

(Di)Video – Uma disputa | A Dispute

Uma divergência de opiniões entre Colin Mulvany e Richard Koci Hernandez sobre o futuro do vídeo nos jornais, levou à apresentação de algumas soluções práticas, por parte de Mulvany. Aqui ficam algumas das que achei mais importantes, devidamente anotadas por mim:

-aumentar o período de vida dos vídeos: tenho que concordar, ao contrário do texto noticioso, a fotografia e o video duram muito para além do acontecimento;

-propaguem o video: como blogger posso vos dizer que um video que dê para colocar num post, torna-o muito mais interessante do que se não houver imagem nenhuma, por isso deveria ser possível inseri-los fora do site de origem. Além disso é mais uma forma de ter um link externo para o jornal (publicidade de borla!?!?!)

-treinem treinem treinem: ao qual acrescento- aprendam aprendam aprendam. Vejam os outros, vejam os vossos, passem ao seguinte. Dominem as regras básicas e depois usem-nas em favor do vosso assunto, há o erro comum de se fazer trabalhos de vídeo com a nossa “visão”. Bem, ter uma marca pessoal é óptimo, mas nunca é bom quando esta impede um trabalho eficaz e uma história bem contada.

-o caminho é longo: à velocidade que o mercado e os meios se desenvolvem é fácil cair no erro de que os resultados serão rápidos. Um dia de cada vez, por favor, tirem o máximo proveito do equipamento que têm e das pessoas que o usam, ouçam os vossos colegas, especialmente se não percebem nada de vídeo – se estão num jornal percebem de notícias, e se não percebem de video são iguais ao comum dos utilizadores.

Em resumo, sejam realistas, positivos, e não se esqueçam: é trabalho.

A difference in opinions between Colin Mulvany and Richard Koci Hernandez over the future of video in newspapers, led to the presentation of some practical solutions by Mulvany. Here are some of the ones i found most important, duly noted by me:

-increase video lifespan: i have to agree on this, in opposition to the news text, pictures and video can last way beyond the natural life of the event;

-propagate video: as a blogger i can tell you that a video that can be embbedable in a post makes it far more more interesting than if it had no image at all, so it should be possible to put them outside the source site. Besides , it’s another way to have an external link to the newspaper (free advertising??!!).

-train train train: to which i add- learn learn learn. Watch the others, watch your own, then go to the next one. Rule the basic rules and then use them in favour of the subject , there’s the common mistake to make video works with our “vision”. Well, to have a personal brand is great, but it can’t be good when it gets in the way of an effective job and a story well told.

-The road is long: at the speed that the markets and the means are developing, it is easy to mistankely believe that the results will come as fast. One day at a time, please, take the most out of your gear and the people who use it, listen to your colleagues, especially if they don´t know a thing about video – if they work in a newspaper they must know about the news, and if they know nothing about video they’re just like the average user.

In short, be realistic, positive, and don’t forget : it’s a job.
