At the forum, danah boyd, founder and president of Data & Society, dug into the case of YouTube, the platform where most young people get the majority of their news, and yet is also a breeding ground for misinformation masquerading as truthful content.

YouTube recommends videos to viewers; however, in many instances, like breaking news, there aren’t often good, contextual, informational videos on the topic. Conspiracy theorists seize on this — by being among the first to upload videos on the issue, and shaping the national conversation on what is happening on the ground. (Think about videos on “crisis actors” during mass shootings, as an example.)

“You go to YouTube for… information and in a few paces you are exposed to extremist content,” boyd said.

While YouTube does try to clean up its site, more work needs to be done by the platform, by news outlets that can better tag their videos on YouTube so that they are more easily surfaced, and in communities so that people of different views and backgrounds can come together around important issues.

The Fragmentation of Truth
YouTube's "significant role in rearranging the information landscape [...] The vulnerabilities of YouTube’s architecture allow media manipulators to shape public knowledge in ways that are profound. [...] it’s a search engine. It’s also a recommendation engine. And it’s a social media site. [...]

refrr:
structural value of local news never of interest to financial

1:01:00
short: https://livestream.com/accounts/1408609/events/8472105/videos/187992236
tech industry affected the industry. but it was set up to fail
tech was built in response to the takeove
tech fundamentally focuses on the abstraction, it focuses on generalization, on scale and above all on growth. When you think about Abstraction you lose all the local value, all of the structure there. so when an abstracted entity tries to produce local information it will fail because it is not actually rooted within community. Tech knows how to universalize and it knows how to scale scale. It does not know how to bring it down to the root of the local communities, that is one of the reasons why we're seeing the fragmentation of epistemologies
.

Apply the same kind of scriptural sense making to the news.
scriptural inference to google searches

instead of using a search engine to research the topic.
Go to google to get "affirmation of something".
Listening to Talk radio and other media this community was consuming: they were being told how to search the process is to find the right search query before you even begin.
52:10
Process and project of going to a search engine is to find the right query. We're back to the manipulation part.

headlines mattered more than anything
54:41 – title text that surround it is the end of the story than the beginning of it.
This was not how google was designed. It is designed to be data driven. it has an epispimongy that knowledge is within the data and that people will click the headlines.

55:30
Those in People in journalisms know there is a constrant struggle about what the headlines do: are they trying to get people in to read or do they do the work on their own.
Exploiters know how to exploit the surround information.

Misinformation is not a new problem
exploitation of media game. personal profit ideological organization gain.
leverage vulternativlies to achieve specific goals.
engineers design for how the tool might be used
journalists write for how they hope the information might be consumed.
policy makers create laws how they hope it will make certain types of change.
most people who like to build, like to create, inform, like to imagine all the awesome ways their creations might be used. they don't like to think about how they might be exploited.

We all hope for what will happen so we can justify the actions we've taken, rather than struggle with all the things that might happen as a byproduct of our very very good intentions.
needless to say, I'd love structures and processes to proactively think about what might go wrong.
security community exploited, build resilience. mindset critical for community and for news.
but it is a particular kind of mindset for certain people and not for other.
building the right structures to allow people to imagine a future that is amazing, and imagine all the things that can go wrong is a really hard organizational challenge.
But I also want to point out this is a point of Institutional friction: putting that in is hard.
the cultural wars as we look at them, we don't like to find the hard ways through, we like to find all the things we can blame the things we can fixed. Technology.
57:16
I argue this is rooted in epistmeoligcal fragmentation.
Differences between how people build knowledge is fragmenting the social fabric of this country.
most visible right now about political debates about access to information.

They no longer know each other, no bridges to realize they're different.
some people focus on substitute .
I focus on the structure of local news.
local news contextualized international news. conceptual connection.
anchored epistopmoisgal difference. allowed ways to see the world differently. [BOSTON!]
ethnic, tremendous community service.
59:00


tech know

==
epistomiy is societal project
Countries have continually struggled over
humanizing and building those connection in local fabric to build it up as a whole.
military is a social project itself.

not just building networks of the same kind
resilience is having networks of people you can turn too. knit people together.
commitment to national service: stragecially built to build network.
not just militaristic project, build people difference put them together.
that's what it means to think about diversity.

“Media Manipulation, Strategic Amplification, and Responsible Journalism”
This misinterpretation of the First Amendment becomes unoperationalizeable fast. A conference like this one only has so many speaking slots. Not every voice — or every perspective — can possibly be represented. The same is true for the front page of a newspaper. Editors must make curatorial decisions. Choosing what to amplify is not the same as curtailing someone’s ability to speak.

Panicked about Kids’ Addiction to Tech? – NewCo Shift
So, here’s what I recommend to parents of small people: Verbalize what you’re doing with your phone. Whenever you pick up your phone (or other technologies) in front of your kids, say what you’re doing. And involve them in the process if they’d like.

Did Media Literacy Backfire? – Data & Society: Points
2017 (guter rundschlag)

leute glauben, was ihre annahmen bestätigt.
im netz werden sie ermächtigt,
von der pädagogik abstrakt bestärkt.

sie misstrauen wikipedia (doktoren und medien),
sie glauben ihren eigenen "recherchen".

How “Demo-or-Die” Helped My Career
danah boyd: "When I left the Media Lab, I was ecstatic to never have to do another demo in my life. Except, that’s the funny thing about learning something important… you realize that you are forever changed by the experience."
