How We Get To Next - 0 views

    Hi there! We're Ian, Elizabeth, Duncan, Anjali, hugh, Darren and Matt, and we're the editorial team of How We Get To Next - a non-profit project funded by the Gates Foundation. We're interested in exploring the intersections between science, technology and culture, and how those things are changing the future.

    New ideas come from unexpected places - we're interested in the people doing important, fascinating work outside of the tiny part of the technology world on the west coast of the United States of America. Here's how we tell their stories:

    We explore topics from Health to Identity, from Play to Afrofuturism.
    We publish more than just non-fiction articles - you should check out the Wonderland podcast, for example, or our data visualisations about how we live and die, or our infogifs about the future of money, or our comic about how biological machines will help us live on Mars.
    At the start of a new topic, we like to publish resources that help you get up to speed, so you can participate in the conversations even if you're not an expert. We've got everything you need to dive right in.
    As of June 2017, we've begun to experiment with episodic storytelling formats. That means we're trying out new ways of telling stories over a longer period of time, building a narrative over a number of articles, podcast episodes, or other discrete chunks of content.

    Here are some articles we've done that we think are particularly good at showing what we're interested in exploring:

Our own devices. Does technology drive history? / Jill Lepore (2008) - 1 views

    Artículo periodístico "Our own devices. Does technology drive history?" de Jill Lepore en The New Yorker, mayo 12, 2008. 8pp

    Partiendo de la reseña de un libro sobre el poder -en la historia y en lo que hoy somos- de la venta de fuentes energéticas (vapor, electricidad), y luego de otros libros de tónica similar Jill Lepore aborda en este artículo un tema importante: el determinismo tecnológico. Ella encuentra repetidamente textos y citas del tipo "we have become what hour technolgies made us", en donde la visión es que las personas y la sociedad, están determinadas por la tecnología. En las dos últimas páginas (que será clave leer) aborda lo reductiva que es esta visión, y nos recuerda que el rol de la historia, en donde "algo" no fue en un inicio lo que es ahora, que todo se va co-construyendo a lo largo del tiempo, a partir de un tejido de significados que se van otorgando por las necesidades concretas de los sujetos-sociedad y que no pueden preverse.

    El texto es interesante porque en sus reseñas de libros aborda muchas historias tecnológicas. Pero fundamentalmente se recomienda por su reflexión en torno a la relación entre tecnología y sociedad (¿alguna determina a la otra?) vista desde la comprensión de la historia y sus procesos de significación. Esta discusión es central para nuestro curso.
