The Web We Have to Save

Hossein Derakhshan est une star de l’internet iranien. Ou plutôt était. « Père » de la blogosphère iranienne, son statut lui a coûté 6 ans de prison. A sa sortie, le visage d’Internet est profondément changé : les blogs ont laissé la place aux réseaux sociaux, la lecture aux likes, la diversité aux flux algorythmés.
Un portrait amer.

The Web We Have to Save — Matter — Medium

Today the Stream is digital media’s dominant form of organizing information. It’s in every social network and mobile application. Since I gained my freedom, everywhere I turn I see the Stream. I guess it won’t be too long before we see news websites organize their entire content based on the same principles. The prominence of the Stream today doesn’t just make vast chunks of the Internet biased against quality — it also means a deep betrayal to the diversity that the world wide web had originally envisioned.

Terminator est kawaï

Nao est le visage plus sexy d’un skynet prenant conscience :

3 robots Nao participent à une expérience. 2 sont rendus muets. On leur demande lequel des 3 robots est encore capable de parole : le robot encore loquace répond qu’il ne sait pas avant de prendre consience de sa propre parole et donc de se corriger et d’indiquer qu’il est le robot pouvant

The robots were programed to think that two of them had been given a “dumbing pill” that would make them unable to speak (actually just a button that silenced them). However, they didn’t know exactly which two of them had been silenced. When the robots were asked to answer which two had been given the pill, all of them tried to respond: “I don’t know.” Since only one was actually able to utter the words, it heard its own voice and recognized it wasn’t among the two who had been silenced. That robot then responded: “Sorry, I know now. I was able to prove that I was not given a dumbing pill.”
