[nettime] …Thoughts on Publishing, Editing, Reading, Using

[Journal of Journal Performance Studies by Nicholas Knouf] [nettime] Some More Nuanced Thoughts on Publishing, Editing, Reading, Using by Gary Hall:

Keith was asking for references to research on academic journals. In addition to those already mentioned, one piece I’ve found helpful is Ted Striphas’s (2010) ‘Acknowledged Goods: Cultural Studies and the Politics of Academic Journal Publishing’, Communication and Cultural/ Critical Studies, 7 (1), 3-25. There’s an ‘open’ pre-print version here.

I’m singling this piece out in this context because it’s particularly interesting with regard to some Taylor & Francis/ Informa’s geo-political connections. For instance, writing in 2008, Striphas details how: Continue reading

The Importance of Being Earnest, or Not

The Importance of Being Earnest, or Not by Christopher Collier, Mute:

One of Guy Ernest Debord’s major achievements was to know with both admirable poise and impeccable timing, the importance of a doctrinal earnestness, but likewise the value of an a certain tactical expediency. Debord already? And its only the first paragraph. Are we not bored with Debord? As the Situationist International (SI) somewhat paradoxically maintained, boredom is counter-revolutionary, and yet it was boredom, they informed us, that was integral in the production of a contemporary revolutionary subjectivity. Boredom they said, produces a more generalised and generalisable alienation, emerging not from a proletariat alienated from the products of labour power, but from all those who would create life itself, alienated precisely by labour from their species-being, as playful, creative, collective subjectivities, as homo ludens.

“Fellow Prisoners” by John Berger

Fellow Prisoners by John Berger, Guernica, July 2011: The best way to understand the world, writes Berger, is not as a metaphorical prison but a literal one. And what better way to inspire solidarity than seeing ourselves (them) as fellow prisoners?

[…] “What is being lived today is new because of its relationship with space.

It’s here that the thinking of Zygmunt Bauman is illuminating. He points out that the corporate market forces now running the world are ex-territorial, that’s to say “free from territorial constraints — the constraints of locality.” They are perpetually remote, anonymous and thus never have to take account of the territorial, physical consequences of their actions.

“Toward a Taxonomy of Public Objects” by Adam Greenfield

[Adam Greenfield @ Systems/Layers Walkshop] Some implications of networked sensing for privacy in public space: Toward a taxonomy of public objects by Adam Greenfield:

[…] “My feeling is that the complexity of this terrain is such that abstract principles and so-called “best practices” aren’t particularly likely to be useful in guiding us toward better decisions unless they’re firmly grounded in a concrete consideration of some present-day actualities. In our attempt to think more clearly about these issues, therefore, we start by considering five real-world informatic systems, all developed and deployed in the past three years. These are arrayed along a spectrum of concern, from a sensor I think of as self-evidently non-threatening, to something I believe the privacy community particularly — and advocates of high-quality public space in general — ought to be deeply troubled by…”
