To Know, but Not Understand: David Weinberger on Science and Big Data at Farnam Street

„Kultur ist Reichtum an Problemen“, schrieb der Historiker Egon Friedell vor fast hundert Jahren – man könnte auch sagen, dass Eli Pariser Schwierigkeiten mit der Tatsache hat, dass die Welt und damit auch die Demokratie immer komplexer wird. Das Zeitalter der Massenmedien geht zu Ende, nun beginnt die Zeit der Medienmassen. Ja, zunehmend viele unterschiedliche Zugänge und Auffassungen sind mühsam. Aber stattdessen alles wieder auf eine Mainstream-Einheitlichkeit zu reduzieren, ist auch keine Lösung.

„Für jedes Problem gibt es eine ganz einfache Lösung“, sagte Albert Einstein einmal. „Sie ist immer falsch.“

Poster for The Mother of All Demos.  

Every so often, I indulge one of my guilty pleasures (no, no that one. Ew!), that is, exploring the history of computing.

Every time we click on a link, use a mouse, cut-and-paste, create a new file, use videoconferencing, we are a) standing on the shoulders of giants and b) using technology that Douglas Engelbart and his team dreamed up in the 1960s, and demonstrated at this historic event in December 1968.  More here.
