The People's Platform (eBook, ePUB)

From a cutting-edge cultural commentator, a bold and brilliant challenge to cherished notions of the Internet as the great leveler of our ageThe Internet has been hailed as an unprecedented democratizing force, a place where everyone can be heard and all can participate equally. But how true is this claim? In a seminal dismantling of techno-utopian visions, The People’s Platform argues that for all that we “tweet” and “like” and “share,” the Internet in fact reflects and amplifies real-world inequities at least as much as it ameliorates them. Online, just as off-line, attention and influence largely accrue to those who already have plenty of both.What we have seen so far, Astra Taylor says, has been not a revolution but a rearrangement. Although Silicon Valley tycoons have eclipsed Hollywood moguls, a handful of giants like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook remain the gatekeepers. And the worst habits of the old media model—the pressure to seek easy celebrity, to be quick and sensational above all—have proliferated online, where “aggregating” the work of others is the surest way to attract eyeballs and ad revenue. When culture is “free,” creative work has diminishing value and advertising fuels the system. The new order looks suspiciously like the old one.We can do better, Taylor insists. The online world does offer a unique opportunity, but a democratic culture that supports diverse voices and work of lasting value will not spring up from technology alone. If we want the Internet to truly be a people’s platform, we will have to make it so.

To the Best of Our Knowledge: Atheists, Believe...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this hour, do atheists have any use for religion? Philosopher Alain de Botton thinks so. He says atheists should think about ways to borrow and steal the best that religion has to offer. Next, Adam Frank is an atheist with a spiritual bent. As an astrophysicist, his yearning for the sacred is rooted in science. He thinks many atheists are too quick to dismiss spirituality. And he's tired of the way the science vs. religion debate is usually framed, with hardcore atheists like Richard Dawkins squaring off against fundamentalist Christians. Then, in 2010 Anne Rice announced on her Facebook page, "Today I quit being a Christian." She went on to say that she refused to be anti-birth control, anti-Demcorat, and anti-science. And she concluded, "In the name of Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian." Anne Strainchamps talks with Anne Rice about her complicated history with Catholicism and why she no longer wants to be part of any church. After that, Diana Butler Bass says we're now living in a post-religious age. What's surprising is how many people are abandoning organized religion, but not God. She talks about the people who identify as "spiritual but not religious," and describes her own journey through several Christian denominations. And finally, the celebrated Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor says we're now living in "a secular age," but we're still trying to figure out what a post-religious world looks like - and how we can find meaning in a culture without any over-arching purpose. In this conversation with Steve Paulson, Taylor talks about Nietzsche's "death of God," the importance of mystery and the "disenchantment" of the modern world. [Broadcast Date: March 21, 2012] 1.

The Upside of Inequality: How Good Intentions U...
9,95 € *

From the New York Times best-selling author of Unintended Consequences comes another bold and contrarian book by the man who famously defended capitalism and the 1 percent at the height of the Occupy movement. Conventional wisdom says income inequality is rising and harmful to nearly everyone, and the rich are to blame. But as Ed Conard shows, anyone who can produce a product valued by the entire economy will find his or her income growing faster than those who are limited by the number of customers they can serve, such as schoolteachers, plumbers, doctors, and lawyers. Consider Taylor Swift, the current queen of pop, who made $64 million in 2014. She earns more because her audience is huge, not because she takes anything away from the tens of millions of fans who happily pay for all those concert tickets, iTunes downloads, and souvenir T-shirts. Her ability to generate value can scale with the economy. The same is true for others who improve the lives of millions, like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Apple CEO Tim Cook. The growing success of innovators doesn't hurt the rest of the workforce. In fact the opposite is true: Their success increases the demand for our middle- and working-class labor. Challenging the arguments of liberal economists like Paul Krugman and Joseph Stiglitz, Conard reveals the truth about the income inequality panic. And by drawing on a historical study of the ebbs and flows of our economy, he proposes ways to grow the economy faster, which will benefit everyone on the income spectrum. 1. Language: English.
