Sex, monsters and outrage » Public Address
Joshua Drummond on the outrage (overhyped) about students in a sex education class being handed literature that, um, outraged some people:
By analogy, it’s a lot like students studying World War Two. Some knowledge of the Nazis' peculiar, perverted ideology and the conditions in which it flourished is necessary to understand how the war got going. But no-one’s being taught that Nazis are rad, any more than they’re being taught that unmarried women are sluts in this particular case. The lesson was – and why not have some fun with paraphrasing – intended to point out the unfortunate truth that there are a lot of dicks in the world and some of them try to force their dickery on others. I’d have thought this was a pretty important lesson, especially when it comes to sexual health, and where better to experience it than in the (relatively) safe space of a health education class?

No! said Labour education spokesperson Chris Hipkins, who thundered mildly: “It’s fine for schools to be using stuff to provoke kids into thinking but there’s a fine line between provoking critical thought and something that’s offensive. That, I think, crosses the line.”

Well, I suppose that’s up for debate. Should students be privy to the extremist views of nutcases?

What's most worrying is that, as always happens, the initial distortion gets far more broadly distributed than the correction.

Think about that: <em>the wrong stuff always gets the broader distribution.</em>

The digital knowledge gap | Alexis Rossi
Regardless of access levels, this library of 4 million books is missing a lot of content from the 20th century.  Most of these books are not in print any longer, and the publishers (if they still exist) have little incentive to make digital copies available.  And according to Heald’s small study, they may not be easy to buy – at least from Amazon.

These physical books do still exist in libraries around the country, but will those libraries make digital copies and make them available to the general public — not just their own students and patrons?

If we don’t address this digital knowledge gap, we may lose access to a century of information.

The Listener - Data Whispers on Vimeo
The Listener creates a physical space which makes tangible, and sometimes cacophonous, the discrete and near-constant data broadcast from devices such as smartphones. It exposes how this data can be used to identify and track individuals, and reveal personal information about their movements.
