Hyperlinking Hyper-Public #3

July 12, 2011

This week, we offer two more featured videos from the Hyper-Public symposium, which took place in early June at the Berkman Center. In addition, the Youth and Media summer team has assembled 12 interviews with Hyper-Public participants and attendees, delving deeper into many of the questions and hard problems raised by the discussions throughout the day.

First, Berkmaniac Ethan Zuckerman elaborates on his Cute Cat theory, in the session on "Experience and Recreation."

Second, Beatriz Colomina, Director, Program in Media and Modernity and Professor at Princeton University, also presented on her work with Ethan and danah:

Andres Lombana Bermudez, Youth and Media summer intern, introduced the video interviews he and other summer interns help to record and produce:

Today, I have the pleasure to announce the release of the first batch of short video clips about Hyperpublic (12 short video interviews) that we have produced in the YAM lab. These videos are based on personal interviews we conducted with several speakers and attendees. We invited them to share with us, during the short coffee breaks and in the private location of an empty classroom in the Maxwell Building, their impressions from the symposium and their insights on the themes of privacy and public space. They answered open ended questions such as,  How do they see the boundaries between the private and the public?, How does the symposium changed the ways in which they think about private/public?, What is the biggest insight they have had during the sessions?, and How do they imagine the future of private and public?
