Ivan Sigal on Caring for Audiences: Building Communities, Design, and Social Movements

0

The world is now saturated with media content, and attention is scarce almost everywhere. The fact of saturation and the ease of production does not mean equitable access to attention, even for important and worthwhile content. What we call the caring problem for audiences is not a determined fact, but also of building communities, language choices, design, and social media tactics.

In this talk Ivan Sigal — photographer, Berkman Fellow, and Executive Director of Global Voices — explores the effects of citizen media and social movements, within the lens of Global Voices coverage and activism, with an eye toward developing future editorial practices.

Book Talk: Judith Donath on The Social Machine

Online, interface designs fashion people’s appearance, shape their communication and influence their behavior. Can we see another’s face or do we know each other only by name? Do our words disappear forever once they leave the screen or are they permanently archived, amassing a history of our views and reactions? Are we aware of how public or private our surroundings are?

In this talk Judith Donath — Berkman Faculty Fellow and former director of the MIT Media Lab’s Sociable Media Group — discusses some of these questions and more from her new book “The Social Machine.”
