[fr] Mes notes de la conférence Reboot9 à Copenhague.
*Here are my notes, unedited and possibly misleading, blah blah blah, of the Reboot9 conference.*
Compare the heat coming out of your laptop and the inside of your head. Laptop is hotter, even though brain power is much much greater.
Low heat: greater efficiency, because all the operations in our head are accompanied by meaning and value. Emotions are more efficient than intelligence. *steph-note: read Blink by Malcolm Gladwell*
Experiential money: people will accept to lose money to ensure fairness *steph-note: cf. Stowe’s bank system for splitting dinner costs.* The computer doesn’t understand fairness.
The gift economy is personal, whereas markets are anonymous *steph-note: Cluetrain says they are somewhat personal, though…* Gift economy has organised the scientific community. Very good at exchanging information, whereas the money/market economy is better at exchanging things. The gift economy is entirely based on relationships (relationships/emotions).
Roszak: Person/Planet — 1979 (if the planet is in crisis, the people are in crisis too). Cost-benefit vs. common sense in dealing with climate issues.
Being human means cherishing some of the irrational/intuitive/emotional stuff which machines are not capable of. Also, humans are not things. “We are like flows of water and fire.” 1.5 tons of matter goes through us every year. 98% of the atoms in our body are replaced every year. “How can the potatos I had for dinner remember my childhood?”
We are like digital media, and yet we build a world of things. *steph-note: I don’t get this “we’re like digital media” thing.* We’re misfits, we don’t look like our civilisation.
If we want to get sex, we need to save the world. A guide to saving the world and getting laid.
Civilisation 2.0 — expansion of the idea of Web 2.0. We are now at a changing point in the development of human society. Moving towards solar energy, new&old social order (P2P, bottom-up, no HQ), become nomads again.
We need to go with the flow instead of trying to stop it.
Civilisation 1.0: depots, headquarters, solid objects and things.
Civilisation 2.0: P2P, flow, links (something that started last year, 2006, when we understood the climate crisis and the importance of the internet)
Civilisation 0.5: 1.000.000 years ago (fire)
Let’s use the tools of Web 2.0 to facilitate the creation of Civilisation 2.0
This is The Link Age.
Human? Links, relations and emotions are central.
