  36. 36. Human is essentially a hybrid. Our bodies’ boundaries have long since been enough to our personalities. According to the Techno- evolution theory, we can argue that technical artifacts and even intelligent environments are integrated into the boundaries of human corporality. What is the big difference between them?
  37. 37. Digital health The proof of this is the concept of digital health. Remember how you feel when your computer starts to play pranks, Internet falls off, or you have no access to your notes.

  47. 47. 47 47 One of the causes of the chronic stress is that there is no netiquette standards in the society. You can easily get work messages in the social nets demanding the answer and etc. 47 47
  48. 48. 48 48 Social pressure There is a socially-accepted behaviour – polite person always ready to supply an instant and detailed answer to the message. 48 Once read a message, should answer. So, if you don’t have time for an answer, just leave it unread, to do it in a more convenient time. 48
  49. 49. 49 49 There is a need for a new netiquette Brand new netiquette needs to be developed, but it is still in the grey area. 49 Once read a message, should answer. So, if you don’t have time for an answer, just leave it unread, to do it in a more convenient time. . Everybody can leave the chat at any time without notice or explanation. To start a dialogue with the single “Hello” and wait for an answer is regarded as ill- mannered, to say the least. The online status tells of the computer being on, but not of the user’s readiness to communicate. 49
  50. 50. Maybe the Net and technologies require more than they give us? Almost 20% of users of the social nets contemplate closing their accounts. About 35% of online population are trying to have the days without Facebook and Twitter at least once a month. 50
  51. 51. Maybe the Net and technologies require more than they give us? Almost 20% of users of the social nets contemplate closing their accounts. About 35% of online population are trying to have the days without Facebook and Twitter at least once a month. “Too frosty communication” “Just the waste of time” “I don’t want everybody to watch my actions” “Bad habit” 51
  52. 52. Mindfulness-practice is taking on Today mindfulness practices is actively gaining followers among IT-developers and overburdened users. A safeguard against recurrence of depression or drug addiction Recovery after the chronic fatigue Fight against obsessive compulsive disorders and anxiety Working with people (military, for instance), who came through the collapse 53
  53. 53. Offices are seized by popular meditation The seven-week class from Google teaches mindfulness to boost labour productivity and leadership skills 54
  54. 54. Eric Schmidt declared his intention to give up gadgets while having a meal. “We should draw a distinct line between the time we are online and offline” 55
  55. 55. 56 Digital detox is an attempt to change human behavior. We are strongly recommended to disconnect for an hour, a day, a week - so that we can recommence our normal activities at three times force upon returning to “the land of absent-mindedness.” Exocortex Corporality
  56. 56. In our insanely complex world where everything is moving, changing and could not be understood, the only reasonable way of existence becomes the rejection of any attempt to control what is happening and development of a relationship to the world in the manner of Zen. Take a world as it is, and just try to find some nice quiet moments in it (Evgeny Morozov). Escapism 57
  57. 57. Discussion about the distraction was based on the assumption that anxiety and personal insecurities that we experience when interacting with social media are the natural price we pay for life, described as the “economy of attention” Fatigue and absent- mindedness – price for being in the “economy of attention” 58
  58. 58. 59 Our attention becomes a scarce commodity, a matter of struggle and the desire to control for the advertising companies and the creators of social media services, which provide advertising space. The more data we need to get into, the more attractive such a service is for the advertisers Exocortex Corporality $ +
  59. 59. But what if the economy is neither autonomous nor self-regulating, as we used to believe? The business interests of the services often do not necessarily take into account the interests of people who wish to communicate calmly and simply, receive news, and exchange information. 60
  60. 60. They either pursue someone’s goals, or just do not simulate accurately the reality. If this is not acknowledged, the effects that trigger technologies will endanger and confuse us. Algorithms are not neutral. They are biased. Service interfaces are built according to the creators’ business interests . The network architecture is constantly pushing users to interact with posts, messages, other users. 61
  61. 61. The Wired correspondent Mat Honan conducted an experiment: for two days he “liked” absolutely everything he saw in Facebook, even if he really hated it. He quit it after two days. “For a remarkably short time my news feed has changed. After so many “likes” in an hour there was no living soul left in my feed. There were only brand messages” 62
  62. 62. Facebook has no option of the auto-reply to the messages, which forces you to respond to messages even on vacation. Unlike your mail. Technology develops so that the mechanisms increasingly replace human action. You can find artificial constraints in the electronic services – it plays into the creator’s hands when the users control most of their actions. 63
  63. 63. Try to imagine the interface of the Facebook, Odnoklassniki or Twitter, provided that the creators of the services are not get paid for the advertisements and clicks. What would change for users, what would they be like? Thinking experiment 64
  64. 64. Digital detox is a highly individual practice. Detox doesn’t resolve the situation. It works just as the personal diet does, it doesn’t tackle the problems of the agricultural industry. When the boots three times as small are tight, it is makes no sense to take them for a while and then put on again. The pain will pass, but come back again as soon as you put your foot into leather trap. 65
  65. 65. 66 — I need to have a rest from the Internet so that I’ll be able to connect to it later. Digital Detox presented like this risks live up to the exploitative strategies of Twitter, Facebook and other services.
  66. 66. Engineers design game machines to give rise to desire and addiction. At that are eager to instil in visitors the feeling that it is their own degradation that causes ludomania. We must subject social media to the kind of scrutiny that has been applied to the design of gambling machines in Las Vegas casinos 67

  71. 71. Criticism Internet.org 1. “Internet for everybody” actually means “Facebook for everybody”. 2. Model “pay as you use the application”, which sets the different rates for data consumed by different applications. All applications are equal, but some are more “equal” than others. 3. Интернет не вызывает экономический рост. Internet access belongs to the human rights. What Internet and what access?
  72. 72. Question: what are social networks and computer services for you? Regular users do not perceive social network as a business, so it is not possible for them to critical about it. Business The public sphere of life 74
  73. 73. An important feature of the design is consciousness control. We always approached the furniture so that it did not just complement the housekeeping but shaped it. Ingvar Feodor Kamprad , IKEA 75

  79. 79. A positive example is the campaign against noise which took place in Vienna in 1934 (Theodor Lessing, “the League against noise”): use tires and the road surface made of rubber to shut out the cacophony of movement of wheeled transport; place cargo in wagons more accurately, so that it doesn’t produce so loud noise and roaring when the train passes through the town; schools should be build in the parks and forest areas to ensure peaceful environment indispensable to learning. 81
