The Library Paradox: Collections and Connections
With instant access to online information, our generation does not need as many printed resources as we once did. Yet research shows that students identify libraries as critical to their academic success. What are the ingredients of a successful academic library? What do students want to do there, and what spaces support these activities? Is there alignment between the needs of students and administrators? We will explore the future of the academic library and ask: how will the library evolve?

Digital Divide or Sinkhole? Tech Famines in the US
What does it mean when low literacy communities are overrepresented on Twitter? When their residents own more cell phones than computers? When their shopping districts have liquor stores and wig shops but no libraries or Wifi? This interactive session will explore the illusion of technology access in poor communities, how it is eroding the intellectual infrastructure of the nation, the consequences for our standing in the global community if we do nothing about it and what policy makers and social entrepreneurs can do to correct course. Two social entrepreneurs will present a spirited debate on these issues and discuss projects in existence or being launched by them and others in cities across the country that represent possible solutions.

Why Reading Is a Flawed, Dying Technology
I'm not a reader. I somehow made it through school (including time in a philosophy PhD program) without being a reader. This fact has made me apologetic, embarrassed, and above all thankful for the explosive growth of online video.

Recently, I used a blog's embedded sound-file function. As I listened to the author express the subtleties of his argument with painstaking vocal inflection it hit me: Reading is over.

It, like handwriting, is a dying technology (and for good reason).

If the intention of writing, speaking, and gesturing is to communicate specific meanings, then writing just isn't as good at doing this as sounds, visuals, and gestures are.

Even when specificity isn't goal - as when we subjectively fill out an allusion - reading STILL gets crushed by sound, visuals, and gestures (think Hitchcock movies).

This has clear consequences for anyone who communicates for a living (and bodes well for the future of digital technologies in advertising, education, etc.).

AFTER SNOWDEN: PRIVACY, SURVEILLANCE, & THE NSA

SXSW Presentation Link Edward Snowden’s dramatic revelations of classified information in 2013 set off a massive public debate concerning the intersection of technological change, national security, and privacy. Alas, that debate is not always sufficiently well informed when it comes to its legal, policy, and technical aspects. This 2.5-hour workshop is meant not to evangelize in favor of any one particular solution, but rather to provide attendees with a sophisticated-but-accessible foundation for sharpening (or perhaps changing) their own views. It brings together dynamic, nationally known experts in technology, privacy policy, civil liberties, law, and U.S. government intelligence policy. The workshop will delve into the technical and policy aspects of national security surveillance, the evolution of the legal architecture governing the NSA, and how policy may develop in the years ahead. We’ll also use various participatory measures to directly engage attendees.

Key Takeaways: 1. What exactly is the current state of the law when it comes to NSA surveillance? 2. What do we know about what the NSA is and is not doing? 3. What do privacy theorists have to say about the impact of technological change on our privacy? 4. How do national security officials think about these issues? 5. What is likely to happen going forward?

Prerequisites:

  • There is no prerequisite for attendance. Anyone with an interest in the legal and policy implications that arise from issues involving privacy, technology, and security is encouraged to register.

What to Bring:

  • Nothing specific.

Everyone's a Curator: Do Museums Still Matter?

In the age of social media, everyone is a curator (or at least they think they are). Media-rich networks have empowered anyone with an interest in art to both disseminate and publish their own creative images and groupings of artworks—essentially, creative Internet users have the ability to assume the roles of curator, artist, and critic, all at the same time. Where do museums fit into this picture, and how can traditional museum curators align their practice with social media users to create meaningful cultural experiences with a public hungry for new ideas and personal resonance?

This panel will discuss the ways in which technology can enhance or strain against museum conventions, with a focus on digital projects that have fostered engaging art experiences. We will also examine how these projects point the way towards new methods of fulfilling the ultimate museum mission of being a place of insight and inspiration.

Library Machines: A Lo-Fi Design Workshop

The future of libraries is here for the making.

Library Machines workshop is the time and space to get folks together to imagine, design and market new Library Machines.

What’s a Library Machine? They follow a little formula, “mad libs”-style:

“It's a special kind of _______ (SITE) _______ (THING) that when you ________ (ACTION) it __________ (REACTION)! It's cool because ____________________ (TELL US WHY IT'S COOL).”

E.g.

It’s a special kind of (READING ROOM) (ENVIRONMENT) that when you (WALK INSIDE) it (DISRUPTS WIFI AND CELLULAR CONNECTIVITY). It’s cool because (CROSSING THE THRESHOLD ALTERS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH TECHNOLOGY).

Successor to last year's “Libraries: The Ultimate Playground,” we’ll begin with some brief inspiration, jump right into a no-skills-required design sprint and finish up with show and tell.

Facilitators, props and architecture-student designed Library Machines will be on hand to spark ideas and keep the energy high.

The World's Strongest Librarian: Blog to Book
Nobody was ever supposed to read my goofy little blog about strongman training and Tourette Syndrome. But then Seth Godin found it, and by this point the blog has become a book.

The book The World's Strongest Librarian has received rave reviews in The New Yorker, O Magazine, People, Wired, The Boston Globe, and many more. It is currently being translated into Korean, Chinese, and more languages are in the works. It's incredibly surreal, particularly since I still work at the library in Salt Lake City and have no plans on leaving.

I've been invited to play a show with the all-author band The Rock Bottom Remainders, which features Stephen King, Dave Barry, Amy Tan, Maya Angelou, Barbara Kingsolver, Matt Groening, and more.

Oh, the book also led to an opportunity to arm wrestle Stephen King when we were each speaking at the Mark Twain House in Hartford. I let him win, but he knows the score.

Cloud Robotics: Instant Scalability & Capability
What if you could instantly download a new set of skills simply by plugging your brain directly into the Internet? This “Matrix-like” capability will soon be a reality for robots, creating scalable machines without the limitations of onboard memory and software. In the cloud-based future, robots will take advantage of the Internet as a resource for massively parallel computation and real-time sharing of resources. Aided by “The Internet of Things,” “Networked robots” will leverage the broad availability of networking and incorporation of open-source, open-access, and crowdsourcing to extend previous concepts and capabilities through access to a global library of images, maps, and object data -- while performing analysis and learning. As a result, cloud robots have the potential to become aware than oblivious, more social than solitary, and more like companions than tools. Part of the IEEE Technology for Humanity Series.

Don't Be Ned Stark: Change Your Institution & Live

Clay Shirky has said that the only institutions that will thrive in the Internet age are those born of the Internet. We have built an ecosystem to advance digital startups: accelerators and incubators, mentors, curriculum and academic courses. In our rush to embrace startup culture, we risk ignoring the importance of institutions, public and private. US colleges and universities alone control over $350 billion. A handful of leaders and internal change agents are trying to apply startups’ culture of experimentation, appetite for risk and acceptance of failure to government, educational and corporate institutions. Disruption is lonely work; when they’re not successful internal change agents can find themselves isolated and out of a job. The panel will include two digital entrepreneurs with recent experience in institutions and someone with experience driving change within government.

Molly Steenson will come to the house to talk about iconoclastic British architect Cedric Price (1934–2003), who designed building-sized computers and learning systems. Information and its transmission was central to how he designed, and he used technology as a provocation and thinking tool that was intended to alter how people thought about learning and architecture. In particular, I'll talk about a set of projects he designed in the 60s and 70s.

The Fragile Law that Protects Online Speech

Section 230 of the federal Communications Decency Act is responsible for the shape of the Internet as we know it today, by freeing website operators from needing to conduct a legal review of each and every user communication that crosses their systems.

And yet, the protection granted by Section 230 is both controversial and fragile. Judges are uncomfortable with the idea that websites can publish revenge porn, pay-to-remove mugshot galleries, and prostitution ads with impunity. State attorney generals have demanded that Congress amend Section 230 to give them broad new powers to bring criminal charges against social media sites, to use them as a choke point to cut off illegal content involving child trafficking. But what would limiting Section 230 mean for the future of peer-to-peer communication?

This panel will explore the controversy over Section 230, including the voices demanding its repeal or change and the consequences to online speech of yielding to such demands.

We Will Not Be Shushed: Guerilla Library Advocacy
Urban Librarians Unite has been able to have a wide ranging and financially huge impact despite having barely any resources. These knife in the teeth librarians have applied social media and tech to traditional activist tactics to get back hundreds of millions of budget dollars in New York City for the last four years.

Through disaster response, street librarianship, and front line advocacy they work to bring libraries out into the community and make the direct impact that the library makes a great part of their community’s lives.

ULU is effective because it uses strategy, intent, and creative design to weave advocacy narratives that tell a story and make people want to make a difference. Despite having no money and very little staff they managed to make real and meaningful impact.

They can show you how you can do it too. Through the tactical application of virtual communities and traditional sweat equity you can achieve incredible results in your community and with as well.

xHumed: Bring Back the Dead, with Mary Shelley

Making their first appearance at SXSWi, internationally renowned and long dead authors, H.G. Wells and Mary Shelley, lead us through the incredible journey of being xHumed.

Brought back to life for unique events in London and Birmingham, England, the xHumed are a collective of Speakers-in-a-Box who imparted Dead Good Thinking at NESTA’s FutureFest and the Library of Birmingham.

The process of bringing back the dead was sometimes painful, but made possible through partnership with cultural and media archive organisations including the Library of Birmingham, Oxford University, BBC and others.

If we can archive and store our personal data, media, DNA and brain patterns, the question of whether we can bring back the dead is almost redundant. The right question is should we?

Project producers Samara and Jason Jones-Hall will join Wells, Shelley and other xHumed guests to reveal both the contemporary relevance of these Dead Good Thinkers and the ripple effect of resurrection.

Policymakers in Washington – Congress, the Administration, and the FCC – have begun to recognize the critical importance of supporting the growth of Wi-Fi.

Reducing Isolation in LGBT Communities

Reducing Social Isolation of LGBT Seniors and Youth Through Technology, Centers and Libraries

From homeless LGBT youth to LGBT seniors who have been rejected by their families, this panel will explore the range of issues the youngest and oldest members of the LGBT communities face and how technology, centers and libraries may serve as the best partners to reduce isolation and homelessness. 

In some of the most rural portions of the US, libraries have served as neutral information hubs for LGBT seniors and youth where other community resources fall short or are censored such as schools or free wifi hotspots. The rise of the Internet and social media have only accelerated the decrease in the isolation that has long been a part of the LGBT experience but many LGBT communities are still suffering.

The Future of Direct Activism in the Digital Age

Climbing a smokestack or chaining yourself to a tree is so 20th century (though still awesome!). What can civil disobedience and non-violent direct action look like online?

With examples from Aaron Swartz's freeing of information to a whistleblower like Edward Snowden to Anonymous-style hacking, we'll examine the following questions:

-- How does civil disobedience translate online?
-- What are current examples of civil disobedience and non-violent direct action happening online?
-- Molly Sauter (a panelist), has classified online civil disobedience into three categories: disruption, information distribution, and infrastructure. Are there tactics that exist outside of those categories?
-- How can we plan and organize civil disobedience online, given what we know about government and corporate monitoring of our communications?
-- How are our targets different for online direct action than offline direct action?

Libraries Engage Youth and Privacy
Do youth care about privacy? Social media researchers and librarians say “yes,” and can show how young people take positive steps to protect personal privacy. Open Society Foundations funded an ALA project for librarians to work with high school students on privacy issues. One project focused on problems faced by immigrants to the U.S. This SXSW panel includes three librarians who worked with students on these OSF grant projects. An Austin area student will join the discussion. - See more at: http://schedule.sxswedu.com/events/event_EDUP23302#sthash.MdM18lGb.dpuf

Turn your space into a peer-learning hub!

Renting a stranger’s house on the other side of the world, sharing an office space with fellow self-employed creatives, finding out about breaking news before the journalists themselves: often without knowing it, many 21st century citizens now lead a life that has been deeply impacted by the open web and its values of collaboration. A new awareness of our interdependence transforms the way we consume, work, and travel.

Learning is also profoundly transformed by this novel global proximity. As the CEO of E-180, a Montreal-based social entreprise which creates matchmaking tools connecting like-minded people interested in sharing knowledge over a coffee, Christine aims to turn everyone into a lifelong teacher. In order to do so, she is working on turning spaces into peer-learning hubs, just like this: https://vimeo.com/69124866.

We Know What You Did Last Summer; Location Data
Soon we will have the ability to know where everyone is all the time. We will have some fun seeing how people are dealing with that today, and think practically how we use that opportunity for good in the future.

Our phones, apps, shared photos, tweets, and messages all give us opportunities to share our location constantly, which many of us do without thinking. The companies that provide our interactive experiences and devices have a lot of location data about us. This creates great opportunities and requires us to think about the right way to use people’s location data.

Think Small About Big Civic Engagement Data
Research shows that engaging citizens – collaborating with them on common interest topics, issues and problems – builds the strongest communities, fortified against the larger challenges of the country. As a result, many community leaders have adopted open systems that bring in feedback directly from citizens. However, these institutions are finding that the resulting big civic engagement data isn’t always immediately actionable. In our instant gratification world, that doesn’t cut it; people expect to see relevant, informed action result from their efforts or they’ll tune out. To create a truly engaged community, governments need to think small about their big civic engagement data. By leveraging tools like GIS software, spatial analytics and mapping visualization products, leaders can hyperlocalize feedback into actionable insights that facilitate meaningful change, effectively bridging the gap between an open government and community activation.

Museums & Mothballs: Reinventing the Experience

ATTENTION: You must signup in advance to attend this workshop. You will need to have a valid SXSW badge, and an activated SXsocial account. To reserve your seat, please go here: https://sup.sxsw.com/schedule/IAP21180

Each year, there are nearly 1 billion visits to museums in the US alone, and museum professionals are facing one common challenge: how to provide these visitors with a more engaging, meaningful experience?

On-demand access to information is fundamentally changing the way we seek and internalize knowledge, creating a great opportunity for museums and similar cultural institutions to rethink themselves.

Using Stanford d.School Design Thinking process and E-180’s approach to matchmaking for knowledge-sharing, we invite participants to rethink their institution's onsite engagement strategy, focusing on content and human interactions.

This is a collaborative four hour long workshop, including a field observation at the Blanton Museum of Art, where participants will create a prototype of a new product based on a challenge proposed by the Blanton’s Education Department.

We expect you to leave the workshop having learned how to go about need finding, ideation and the prototyping of a new product, supported by a team of museum, design thinking, and education professionals. You don't want to miss this unique opportunity!

Prerequisites:
The only thing you need to attend this workshop is a passion for our cultural institutions and the willingness to get your hands dirty working on a new product prototype.

What to Bring:
Come as you are!

User-Generated Content: Who Owns What?
Ownership of user-generated online content remains a hot topic. "User" can denote anyone from an author or photographer to a teenager who creates a meme that ends up on t-shirts. How can intellectual property law cover such a wide spectrum when so many issues do not even involve copyrightable material? As the story unfolds and the law scrambles to catch up, large corporations have tried to make claims that strip users of their rights and likely have adverse consequences to Internet Law. Facebook's Instagram app tried to modify their Terms Of Use to allow the sale of users’ photos without permission. Agence France Presse argued that they can freely use photos posted to Twitter because Twitter's Terms Of Use “encourage[s] broad reuse of Content." Craigslist also claim copyright to their users' content. Most attempts to claim ownership have ended in public outcry. Yet the courts have been surprisingly sympathetic to these claims, opening the door for ownership of you and what you own.
