The Digital Revolution Licence

VON Dr. Wolf SiegertZUM Mittwoch Letzte Bearbeitung: 24. Februar 2010 um 15 Uhr 15 Minuten

 

Unter dem Titel THE VIRTUAL REVOLUTION hat BBC TWO eine eigne Lizenz kreiert, die es dem Nutzer erlaubt, Programme und Materialien aus dem Umfeld dieser Sendung legal aus dem Netz herunterzuladen und für bestimmte eigene nichtkommerzielle Zwecke zu nutzen. [1]

Diese Nutzung beinhaltet nicht nur das wieder-sehen dieses Programms, sondern auch die Möglichkeit, aus diesem Fundus Quellen zu schöpfen, um ein eigenes Programm zu machen.

Unter der Titel: "Make your own documetary" [2] wird ein ganzes Bündel an Angeboten - von Blogbeiträgen über Interviews bis zu Programmthemen - zu insgesamt vier Sende-Blöcken angeboten:

Programme 1: The great levelling?

The wonder and walls of Wikipedia; the blogger media revolution; the price of peer-to-peer piracy... who really has power on the web? Is it the online crowd or the ’gatekeepers’? Is the web a platform for sharing or is it inequality writ large?

Programme 2: Enemy of the state?

Is the web indestructable or can censorship, cybercrime or infrastructure attack bring it down? As the web trancends the barriers of the physical world the orthodox view is that the nation state will inevitably wither as the porous web of hyperlinks conquers the globe. But some states are fighting back.

Programme 3: The cost of free

Free services, limitless information, endless opportunities for the user... the web seems to defy all the laws of economics. But are we trading our privacy for a ’free’ web?

Programme 4: Homo Interneticus?

Are we empowered, connected and enlightened with the world’s knowledge at our fingertips? Or distracted and addicted with shorter attention spans> Are our skittering brains bombarded and stupified by the ’yuck and wow’ of the web? Is the web really changing us - the way we think, the way we behave, the way relate to each other? And is it for better or for worse?


Während hier in Deutschland über die Möglichkeiten und Unmöglichkeiten solcher Themen und solchen Tuns oft nur diskutiert wird, werden in anderen Ländern Fakten geschaffen, sodann zusammengetragen, in Wort, Ton und Bild dokumentiert und arrangiert - um sodann sowohl als Sendung als auch für die eigene Beschäftigung mit diesem Thema freizugeben.

Uns Europäern "on the continent" wird im Vereinigten Königreich unter dem Label der BBC thematisch wie praktisch vorgeführt, was sich in den 20 Jahren seit der "Erfindung" des world-wide-webs, seit "HTML" und "Mosaik" und "Napster", in unserem Leben verändert hat - und wie wir heute in unserem eigenen Arbeits-Leben auf diese Veränderungen re-agieren können.


Der ursprünglich an dieser Stelle geschriebene Satz: "Wie gut nur, dass dieses Material nicht schon sieben Tage nach der Erstausstrahlung des Programms wieder aus den Netz genommen werden muss..." kann allerdings so nicht stehenbleiben.

- der BBC iPlayer kann war auch ausserhalb der UK heruntergeladen, aber nur auf der Insel bzw. über eine dort generierte IP-Adresse zum Einsatz gebracht werden.

- alle vier hier zitierten Programme sind auch nur einen beschränkten Zeitraum einsehbar [3]

Aber, die BBC wäre nicht die BBC, würde man uns nicht eine Alternative anbieten:

- den 3D Documentary Explorer

- die Web-Site der Open University

www.open2.net/digitalrevolution/index.html

- den BBC iPlayer für Radio-Programme, in dem die Folgen Zug um Zug ab dem 22. Februar angeboten werden unter der URL:

oder:

www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p0067vwv/The_Monday_Documentary_The_Virtual_Revolution_Episode_1/

In der ersten Folge geht es darum, wie "das Web" entstanden ist, wie es heute neue Formen der Nutzung - und des Missbrauchs - ermöglicht. Und welche Zukunft es hat.

Exemplarisch dafür sind die beiden folgenden Zitate:

Arianna Huffington ("a revolutionary interesting lady or a new model of a gatekeeper in these modern times"?)

I’m a huge optimist about the web. [...] I see that we are moving towards a hybrid future where we combine the best of traditional media - accuracy, fairness - and the best of new media - transparency, immediacy, accountability. The hybrid future that I’m envisaging clines to indlude millions of voices but is not going to eliminate editors. Editors will be more important than ever.


Aus aktuellem Anlass hier eine Link-Liste zu einer Reihe von englischsprachigen Blog-Beiträgen, die im Rahmen dieser Serie das Thema "Piracy" nochmals zusammengestellt worden waren:

The Pirate’s Dilemma | Matt Mason | 10:40 UK time, Tuesday, 28 July 2009

Piracy - what’s your line? | Aleks Krotoski | 09:50 UK time, Monday, 27 July 2009

It’s a question of creator’s choice | Feargal Sharkey | 11:43 UK time, Thursday, 30 July 2009

The Pros and Cons of Free | Jon Webster | 12:33 UK time, Tuesday, 1 September 2009

Als besonderes "goodie" sei an dieser Stelle der ungeschnittene Mitschnitt des Interviews mit Steve Wozniak "You have to pay for what you use" anempfohlen. Er geht zurück bis auf den ersten Konflikt zwischen dem Homebrew Computer Club und dem jungen Bill Gates, der sich in einem Brief über das Kopieren "seines" Programms durch die junger Nutzergemeinde beschwerte. [4]

[4Steve: Sure our computer club got very interested in these up coming computers and then it became aware that there was a basic language a computer language that would run on these small low cost computers that you can build yourself and then you have to spend a lot of money to buy enough memory to run a programming language and to buy a teletype to type your stuff on yet you have to spend several times the cost of a car but then you could run Bill Gates and Paul Allen had written a basic came on a big paper tape reel and it, you read it in on a teletype machine it would get into the memory of the computer and then it could run programmes. You could type in a game out of a book of games written in the basic language, type in the game and play it on the computer. This was a whole, goal that probably every one of the 500 of us in the Home Brew Computer club was to get to the point that we could play games on our own computer. And Bill Gates became a little bit famous and well known for this software going around. well we had a con, one copy of the tape that our club library had bought, to purpose and one member of the club, the Dan ........ took that tape and borrowed it for two weeks and when he came back he brought back like four copies, he just copied the, he copied the paper tape at his company AMI and he brought them back and he said the new rule is anytime you take something from the club library you have to return at least that many copies. That’s kind of funny and we got a letter from Bill Gates all upset you know copyright you know you’re copying software and you shouldn’t. you know and I agree, I agree with that."
