  • Autonomy In Your Work - Steffan Antonas
    Special thanks to Daniel Pink for inspiring me to doodle this in my moleskin this morning I m half way through his new book Drive The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us and the 4 T s he discusses in the context of autonomy has got my brain buzzing I thought the sketch I did was worth translating to powerpoint for a discssion this morning This makes me wonder if the desire to get to that red dot sweet spot is the very essence of what drives people to become entrepreneurs What do you think Published February 19 2010 Author Steffan Antonas Category Psychology Philosophy The Future Of Work Top Posts Tags Happiness Motivation Psychology The Future Of Work Comments 6 Comments Post navigation Previous Post Maps Meta data and Augmented Reality Next Post It s Not Who You Know 6 Comments beaulebens February 19 2010 at 5 29 pm This is so so true Even having some semblance of control over just one of these factors can make a huge difference in your happiness motivation etc If you re lucky enough to either control or be happy with your situation on 2 or more then I think life is pretty peachy I actually personally enjoy some restrictions on some of these occasionally because improvising and coming up with alternate solutions is something I enjoy but it definitely has its limits I wonder if this actually points to some core selfishness of people and desire for control and if so is that a necessarily good bad thing PS Had to reload re post this because it didn t go through for some reason Steffan Antonas February 19 2010 at 5 30 pm Re Your PS maybe I should start using Intense Debate Steffan Antonas February 19 2010 at 5 32

  • Everything Is A Remix - Steffan Antonas
    part soon to be 4 part video short on remix culture by Kirby Ferguson With some smart creative editing he explores remix techniques involved in producing films we all know and love The message is that we all stand on the shoulders of giants even giants themselves The second video s star wars montage that picks the movie s sources apart is particularly interesting because so many people consider it ground breaking but that s just one of the many great examples I ve included Kirby s videos below along with a TED video of Lawrence Lessig who is a champion of the movement for protecting remix culture Lessig s video is one of the best easily digestible talks on the web that provides good arguments for why in the age of YouTube we need to recognize that even the greats borrow remix and re purpose to produce great works and that the right to do so should be protected by law Cheers to you anonymous Vimeo curators Everything Is A Remix Part I Everything Is A Remix Part II Lawrence Lessig Re examining the remix Published February 11 2011 Author Steffan Antonas Category Cyberculture Tags Lawrence Lessig Remix Culture

  • How YouTube Handles Copyright, and Some Thoughts On Remix Culture - Steffan Antonas
    now we re still figuring out how to handle platforms like YouTube and how to deal with copyright because it s all so new These nascent values like fair use etc are still up for debate so we ve got to work hard to understand what they mean for the ecosystem and how choices one way or the other might affect behaviors and outcomes in the future Now I do realize that I m asking you to spend 30 minutes here which in the world of the web is an eternity but here s the thing in my opinion if you want to wrap your noodle around these issues these two videos do a great job of getting you informed quickly In the context of all the content that s out there on this stuff and the density of a lot of the text you re likely to come across 30 minutes of video is pretty quick Agreed Ok here we go This first video is quick just 5 minutes Margaret Gould Stewart YouTube s head of user experience talks about how YouTube s technology works and polices the massive number of videos uploaded to its site every day as well as how they work with copyright holders and creators to foster creativity and mutual benefit in the ecosystem It gives you a glimpse into how YouTube is thinking about remix culture and how to facilitate a system that seeks to reconcile creative freedom with marketplace competition The scale of the technology is staggering This gives you a nice macro view of the volume of content that YouTube s trying to deal with In this second video Harvard professor Larry Lessig an authority on copyright issues takes a look at remix culture from the point of creators society and community
