'Wikivism': From communicative capitalism to organized networks Paul Stacey Cultural Poltics English 2008 This article examines two different approaches to the political significance of networked technologies like the Internet. It considers Richard Kahn and Douglas Kellner’s “critical/reconstructive” methodology and Jodi Dean’s account of “communicative capitalism,” and shows how the respective approaches are insufficient to elucidate the genuinely radical possibilities we may harbor for the Internet. The case study of “hypertextual databases” or “wikis” is used, both to contextualize the limitations of the above arguments and to present a more radical overture for thinking about network politics. I also utilize Ned Rossiter’s concept of “organized networks” and show how these social-technical forms can provide a more radical proposition for thinking about the political possibilities of wikis. I proceed to translate wikis as specific kinds of organized networks that take us beyond a purely perfunctory language – whether as “information-rich data banks” or else animating the “fantasy of abundance” – and allow us to see them in a decidedly “political” way, as necessarily “incomplete” and thus eminently “rewritable” formations. This essay then concludes by examining the wider implications this “political” reading has for the way in which we understand the multiple situations of nascent forms of democratic politics. 2 1
A participação do público no Wikinews e no Kuro5hin Marcelo Ruschel Träsel E-Compós Portuguese August 2007 This paper presents the results of a mastership research focused on the interventions of collaborators over journalistic material published in the grassroots news sites Wikinews and Kuro5hin. A sample of ten texts was collected over seven weeks, in order to form a corpus of interventions. This corpus was later submitted to a content analysis, aimed in verifying if the interventions had a predominant pluralizing character. The results show that indeed the interventions are for the most part pluralizing, suggesting that grassroots journalism may bring important contributions to a democratic society. 2 1
