Reblogged Post #HASTAC2011 Reflections…

So What Again Is HASTAC? Post #HASTAC2011 Reflections on a Network Founded on a Theory That’s a Practice by Cathy Davidson, originally posted on HASTAC:

We have just finished two and a half glorious days at the University of Michigan. Soon we at HASTAC Central will write a formal thank you blog to all the incredible planners, organizers, and participants of our fifth HASTAC Conference, Digital Scholarly Communications, sponsored by the University of Michigan Institute for the Humanities, the Mellon Foundation, and the Kidder Residency in the Arts, and led by two of our HASTAC Steering Committee members, Danny Herwitz and Julie Thompson Klein. And many others. Incredible event.Incredible people.

Now some overview thinking, not just about the #hastac2011 but about what it all means at this point in HASTAC’s history: Continue reading

Database of Virtual Art: Collective Tool for the Field

As pioneer in the field, the Database of Virtual Art (DVA) has been documenting the rapidly evolving digital installation art for more than a decade. Cooperating with known media artists, researchers and institutions as members allows the DVA to develop into the collective project in the field. There have been a number of online archives supported over the years, but almost all no longer have funding and have either disappeared or exist in a frozen condition.

The DVA is beginning a renewed phase of further development with existing and new members. Based on the concept of expanded documentation it epitomizes a collective, project dedicated to media art. 500 artists selected from over 5,000 applicants offer the best selection of thousands of high quality artworks. Besides the artists, more than 300 theorists and media art historians are contributors. The DVA is a scholarly project and from the beginning a university-based endeavor. Continue reading

Turkopticon: Watching out for the Crowd in Crowdsourcing

Turkopticon — a Firefox 3.0 extension — adds functionality to Amazon Mechanical Turk as you browse for HITs and review status of work you’ve done. As you browse HITs, Turkopticon places a button next to each requester and highlights requesters for whom there are reviews from other workers. Bad reviews let you avoid shady employers and good reviews help you find fair ones. You can view reports made against requesters with a quick click. As you review HITs you’ve completed, are there HITs you weren’t fairly paid for? Turkopticon adds a button that lets you review requesters from your “Status Detail” page.

Mechanical Turk is a site where requesters can put up tasks with a set price — usually pennies to a dollar — and find workers who will do those tasks. Some do AMT for fun and many enjoy it as work. However, many use it to make ends meet when they have few other choices.
