Social Media and Value Dilemmas of Digital Culture:
Future Trends for the New Generation

For the purpose of the “Connect-Universum 2012” conference presentation I would like to structure my talk with several points or theses, hoping that this bullet style logic will help to make my ideas clear. This paper is based on my ongoing research in the field of culture and technology, which I prefer to conceptualize as Digital Culture studies (works of C.Gere and D.Trend must be referred here as an important contribution to the field). Thus whenever we ask about different digital technology phenomenon in the context of social, cultural or psychological agenda, digital culture is the framework for shaping discussion. That’s why the first point is the following.

Influence of New Media on Human Brain

Connect-universum 2012
Author: Greenfield S.A.

Topic of report: Influence of New Media on Human Brain

What we care to look at in this talk is an exiting question that not just interest scientists but also interest parents, employers, and indeed, and the citizens of the 21st century. And the reason is that concerns the brain. I like this picture of the brain where you can see someone actually holding a human brain because it brings home to you just how special you are and yet how mysterious the brain is. It reminds me of when I was student in Oxford and we had to dissect a human brain and these brains are wheeled in and in pots on trolleys, and you are wearing cloves because the brain is in a fixative that preserves it so you wouldn’t cut it up. But I do remember, on this very special day, when I was holding the brain, thinking, if I was not wearing gloves and I got a little nit of brain tissue under my fingernail – would that be a bit somebody loved with? Would that be a memory? Would that be a hope? How could you have a hope under your fingernail? And it was this idea of this very boring, sludgy, very uninteresting object that you could hold in one hand and how that translated into all the things we feel special about ourselves, and about our emotions, and about humanity generally. How the one linked to the other.

Mind and media

Connect-universum 2012
Author: Negri Marco

Annotation:

What experiences do we have of the relationship between mind and media? In the first part of these notes, I try to describe the relationships between mind and media (in particular certain essential points of connection or disconnection between a person’s mind and Twenty First Century media of mass communication). In the second part of the writing, I try to evaluate the relationship between mind and media — I try to observe the marriage or divorce between mind and media from a normative point of view: from a perspective based on some shared values, such as freedom, truth, health and friendship. I focus in the end on the importance of taking both interpreted facts and ethical judgments about the relationship between mind and media as something complex — something to be understood by being aware of the multifaceted nature of human beings and reality.
