Internet Manifesto | Manifesto Internet

dd

Hey Media, what’s that sound? Every knows what’s going down…but you.

This is the feeling i get reading this Internet Manifesto, created by 15 journalists and bloggers as a reaction to the Hamburg Declaration, in which major publishers “advocate strongly urgent improvements in the protection of intellectual property on the Internet”, and “disagree with those who maintain that freedom of information is only established when everything is available at no cost”. Yes, if you want it to be free you can’t have it for free. And public domain facts go under a copyright license (i just delight on wondering the variety of consequences this might bring about). Besides, they would never take profit from free content, created by others, and never without compensating them (or giving them credit).

Though this might seem a specific discussion it is an important one, and this Manifesto comes not only as an answer to a different view on the Internet, but also as a guide to understand the basic principles of it, that media moguls have been failing to grasp for so long. And like playground bullies, they’re trying to change the rules of the game, just because they’re losing.

Mr.Media Mogul, read below the first point of the Manifesto and then go here to read  the rest. And the rest of you, what do you make of it?

Ei Media, o que se passa? Toda a gente sabe…menos vocês.

Esta é a sensação que tenho ao ler este Manifesto Internet (trazido para o Português pelo Pedro Teichgräber e Paulo Querido) criado por 15 jornalistas e bloggers como reacção à Declaração de Hamburgo, na qual os grades editores defendem “vigorosamente melhorias urgentes na protecção da propriedade intelectual na Internet”, e discordam “com aqueles que defendem que a liberdade de informaçãosó é conseguida quando tudo está disponível gratuitamente”. Sim,se querem que seja livre não pode ser grátis. E factos de domínio público ficam debaixo de direitos de autor (delicio-me a imaginar a variedade de consequências que isto podia trazer). Além disso, eles nunca lucraram com conteúdo livre criado por outros e sem lhes pagar (ou lhes dar o devido crédito).

Apesar desta discussão parecer um pouco específica, é muito importante, e este Manifesto vem não só como resposta a uma perspectiva diferente sobre a Internet, mas também coo um guia para compreender os seus princípios básicos, que os barões dos média não têm conseguido compreender. E como rufias de recreio, querem mudar as regras do jogo  apenas porque estão a perder.

Sr.Barão dos Media, leia o primeiro ponto abaixo deste Manifesto e veja o resto aqui. E vocês, o que pensam disto?

Internet Manifesto (ler versão portuguesa)

1. The Internet is different.

It produces different public spheres, different terms of trade and different cultural skills. The media must adapt their work methods to today’s technological reality instead of ignoring or challenging it.  It is their duty to develop the best possible form of journalism based on the available technology. This includes new journalistic products and methods.

i : the manifesto | o manifesto

falsa-cover-de-i

old cover project | antiga maquete da capa

The new “i” will be news caviar.

News paté.

Not news pottage.

News, stories, analysis, opinions and services will be presented in a first class graphic model, but the secret of the new formula will not be the quality of the design but the relevance of the content.

This has been a content-driven redesign.

I wants be an extremely efficient newspaper.

Offering quality and compelling information in an attractive, compact, and easy to read newspaper format.

Not zooming old formulas into fewer pages.

(…)

Our Portuguese readers will get more information than ever in print and online .

And our superb content will capture more eyeballs than ever.


This is an excerpt of the Manifesto devised by Juan Antonio Giner that is working with the team of the new portuguese newspaper coming out next Thursday, named “i”.  As we all know these are hard times for the publishing industry, so new projects will have to be different of what has been done before. So the expectations for “i” are huge. I’ll be coming  back to this launch during this week. Until then, read the whole Manifesto.

Este é um excerto do Manifesto pensado por Juan Antonio Giner que está a trabalhar com a equipa do novo jornal “i”, que é lançado já esta quinta-feira. Como todos sabemos, estes são tempos difíceis para a indústria dos jornais, por isso os novos projectos terão que ser diferentes do que se tem feito até agora. As expectativas para o “i” são, portanto, enormes. Eu vou voltar a este assunto durante a semana. Até lá leiam todo o Manifesto.

Audácia,inovação,ambição | Audacity,innovation,ambition

Manifesto de Pat Thornton | Pat Thornton’s Manifest

The audacity of ambition — and innovation

I don’t want to work for an industry that is content with the status quo.

I don’t want to work for an industry that is afraid of innovation.

I don’t want to work for an industry that blames its readers when things go bad.

I don’t want to work for an industry that is scared of risk — and success.

I don’t want to work for an industry that is scared of change.

I don’t want to work for an industry that is afraid to have a conversation with its users.

I don’t want to work for an industry that is content to die.

I want to work for an industry that believes in its audience.

I want to work for an industry that can admit it was wrong.

I want to work for an industry that has the audacity to innovate.

I want to work for an industry that always wants to improve, even when it’s on top.

I want to work for an industry that always strives to be the best.

I want to work for an industry that believes there is no such thing as good enough.

I want to work for an industry that puts innovation first.

If this is the last stand for the American Newspaper, I don’t want to go out without a fight. I want to shatter paradigms, destroy cherished icons and push the envelop of innovation. And if all those efforts fail, I want try again.

I don’t want to admit defeat without at least trying. If I lose, I want it to be because I had nothing left to give. I don’t want to lose because I decided it was too hard to win.

I want the audacity of ambition — and innovation.

What do you want?

Rádio Zero, o gosto pela diferença

web_log_inv.pngHá gente que faz coisas diferentes na rádio. Inevitavelmente, é só nas rádios universitárias que isso acontece. Mas se algumas têm espaço nas ondas hertzianas, a Rádio Zero vive no éter virtual. E não é por causa disso que se fica atrás em qualidade, atitude e originalidade na sua programação. Com o início das aulas, esta rádio movida pela Associação de Estudantes do Instituto Superior Técnico fez a sua remodelação semestral e trouxe algumas novidades. Sempre com o objectivo de ser alternativa,criativa e, principalmente, livre.

Fiz-lhes uma pequena entrevista onde nos põem a par de quem são, o que mudou, e o que se vai passar a seguir.
