Abstract

""Links"" are among the most basic—and most unexamined—features of online life. Bringing together a prominent array of thinkers from industry and the academy, The Hyperlinked Society addresses a provocative series of questions about the ways in which hyperlinks organize behavior online. How do media producers' considerations of links change the way they approach their work, and how do these considerations in turn affect the ways that audiences consume news and entertainment? What role do economic and political considerations play in information producers' creation of links? How do links shape the size and scope of the public sphere in the digital age? Are hyperlinks ""bridging"" mechanisms that encourage people to see beyond their personal beliefs to a broader and more diverse world? Or do they simply reinforce existing bonds by encouraging people to ignore social and political perspectives that conflict with their existing interests and beliefs? This pathbreaking collection of essays will be valuable to anyone interested in the now taken for granted connections that structure communication, commerce, and civic discourse in the world of digital media.

Abstract

Digitale Doppelgänger und animierte Hollywoodstars, Fahrten durch Nervenbahnen und Hautporen, unmögliche Kameraperspektiven und Bildräume, die sich unendlich fortsetzen - in aktuellen Spielfilmen sind gefilmte Bildanteile und Computeranimationen oft ununterscheidbar miteinander verschmolzen. Eine neue Kategorie von »hybriden Bewegungsbildern« ist entstanden, die eine Bildästhetik jenseits des Effekt-Kinos hervorgebracht hat. Ihre Inszenierungsstrategien unterwandern unsere Vorstellung realistischer Darstellungen - sie beeinflussen unsere Wahrnehmung nachhaltig und prägen unsere Sicht auf die Welt mit. Das Buch verbindet die Darstellung der technischen Voraussetzungen dieser neuen Bildwelten mit einer eingehenden Untersuchung ihrer ästhetischen Implikationen. Es schließt damit eine Lücke in der wissenschaftlichen Auseinandersetzung mit der Digitalisierung der Bildproduktion.

Abstract

Current findings from anthropology, genetics, prehistory, cognitive and neuroscience indicate that human nature is grounded in a co-evolution of tool use, symbolic communication, social interaction and cultural transmission. Digital information technology has recently entered as a new tool in this co-evolution, and will probably have the strongest impact on shaping the human mind in the near future. A common effort from the humanities, the sciences, art and technology is necessary to understand this ongoing co- evolutionary process. Interactivity is a key for understanding the new relationships formed by humans with social robots as well as interactive environments and wearables underlying this process. Of special importance for understanding interactivity are human-computer and human-robot interaction, as well as media theory and New Media Art. »Paradoxes of Interactivity« brings together reflections on »interactivity« from different theoretical perspectives, the interplay of science and art, and recent technological developments for artistic applications, especially in the realm of sound.

Abstract

Die gegenwärtige Interface-Krise bei digitalen Medien nehmen Informatiker und Informatikhistoriker in diesem Band zum Anlass für eine Langzeitbilanz der Mensch-Computer-Interaktion. Sie legen sowohl Gesamtüberblicke der Entwicklung aus technik- und geistesgeschichtlicher Sicht vor als auch spezielle Studien zur Bedienproblematik einzelner Epochen. Dadurch entsteht ein großer Bogen von den Bedienschnittstellen der frühen Mainframe-Welt über die interaktiven PC-Interfaces bis zu den neuesten Entwicklungen des Wearable Computing und der proaktiven Ambient Intelligence. Die historisch-genetischen Analysen münden in theoretische Betrachtungen und kritische Rückblicke auf die Forschung zu Mensch-Computer-Interfaces sowie Ausblicke auf die Zukunft.
