Fórum ktorého cieľom je agregácia správ a vedeckých článkov o neduhoch digitálneho veku ako napr.

- kyberšikana (cyber-bullying)
- závislosť na počítačoch, smartphonoch, sociálnych sieťach atď.
- digitálna demencia, digitálna anorexia atď.
- vplyv používania digitálnych technológií na fyzické (napr. deformacia muskulatúry, poškodenie zraku atď.) či psychické (depresie, štiepenie osobnosti, samovražedné sklony) zdravie jednotlivca
- call-out culture v digitalnom priestore a jej vplyv na koheziu spolocnosti

Mnohé z informácií z tohto fóra pravdepodobne využijem pri mojej profesúre v oblasti Digitálneho Vzdelávania. Z tohto dôvodu sú obzvlášť vítané príspevky tématizujúce vyššie vymenované neduhy vo vzťahu k deťom, adolescentom resp. študentom.

Vďaka za pomoc

Facebook čelí kritice za to, že zatajil zjištění své interní studie o psychických problémech, které způsobuje používání Instagramu. Aplikace na sdílení fotek, která mu patří, má toxický vliv zejména na dospívající dívky, u nichž vyvolává úzkostné stavy a deprese. Drasticky jim totiž snižuje sebevědomí.

Rovnaká pretvárka funguje v oblasti rodín, pracovného trhu a podobne. To nie je nič čo by nejako "soc. siete" priniesli. Vždy malo všetko svoj "reprezentačný" a potom svoj "niečo ako vnútorný" pohľad.

Ak je niekto otrokom soc sietí, je možo problém toto, teda depresie spôsobuje v podstate to že tomu človeku chýba "realita" viac žije tam vo virtuále v tom reprezentačnom svete. Takže ja by som povedal, že to je kombinácia závislosti a popri tom orientácia čito na tú "reprezentačnú stránku". Rovnako stretneš nešťastníkov z radov ... víletík, kávička, pivečko dobrá debátka a nakoniec doma a v rodine veci ležia ako pred X rokmi, aj z toho ide ľuďom ujebať dekel, nepotrebujú net. Nerovnováha a podvedomie si proste nájde cestu.

nikdy predtym v historii si nemal moznost okamzite sa "porovnovat" s takym mnozstvom ludi, ako dnes. instagram, facebook, tinder... to je to, co vychadza z tych studii, ze kdekolvek sa pozries, vidis, ako sa ostatnym ludom dari viac, su krajsi a maju sa lepsie. to, ze to nie je real ti mozog (a hlavne podvedomie) neumoznuje pochopit, aj ked racionalne tomu rozumies. evolucia s niecim takymto pri ladeni nasho mozgu s takymto niecim proste nepocitala.

takze ano, je to nieco, co socialne siete priniesli.

Ja prave naopak - clovek zisti, ze kopec problemov a pocitov ktore ma su relativne bezne aj u inych. V niektorych pripadoch dokonca znamenaju problem, ktory sa da riesit s odbornikom.

Ono velmi zalezi ako co clovek pouziva…

prakticky kazdy, koho poznam, co sleduje tieto naaranzovane dokonale profily, ma z toho nejaku formu depresie. ci uz problemy vo vztahoch (ked partner nie je taky dokonaly ako cely ostatny internet), nespokojnost a neustale menenie byvania (3x rocne zmeneny nabytok v byte), navaly hnevu, atd.

nikto nevie pochopit, ze ta fotka naozaj nie je momentka, a ti ludia na nej naozaj nie su stastni. sice ked im to vysvetlim, tak racionalne chapu. ale aj tak sa nechaju dobrovolne klamat dalej, nieco ako reklama v telke.

ono, na druhu stranu, tazko povedat, ci ti ludia su jebnuti kvoli tymto platformam, alebo boli na hlavu odjakziva, len tu sa to viac prejavuje.

ja tvrdim jedno - tak ako internet amplifikoval dobre veci (ako digitalizacia privatneho, public aj bussiness zivota) tak amplifikoval aj zle veci (hoaxy, dezinfo, to co pises), cize ano, ti ludia boli slahnuti aj pred tym, akurat nemali moznost to naplno rozvinut

a akakolvek snaha regulovat zle veci bude mat negativny efekt na amplifikaciu dobrych veci

anyway - cumim v akych bublinach to zijete, ja nikoho takeho nepoznam :)

My daughter Alexa is nine now. The whole thing is a step beyond 'normal' teasing and bullying. It's identity erasure. The word Alexa has become synonymous with servant or slave. It gives people a licence to treat people with the name Alexa in a subservient manner."

Lauren added that for older children, a lot of the Alexa jokes can be sexual in nature.

The issue also affects adults. Alexa lives in Hamburg, Germany, and suffers jokes both in her private and professional lives.

"If I do a presentation at work, as soon as I say my name someone always makes a comment," she told the BBC.

"I think it's ethically unacceptable that a brand can hijack a human name and totally change its meaning. My name is my identity.

"I would encourage everyone who is called Alexa to fight for their name. It is Amazon who has to step back."

Since Amazon's Alexa devices were introduced in the UK in 2016, the popularity of the name has dramatically fallen. Then it was the 167th most popular baby name in England and Wales, but by 2019 it was 920th.

s tou rekurziou a interaktivitou to myslim vo velmi sirokom zmysle zakladnych principov vnimania (teda nie len predavanie infomacii v spolocnostiach).

Ak prijmeme premisu, ze cielom nervoveho systemu je zabezpecit prezitie a rozmonzenie organizmu prostrednictvom intrakcie s prostredim, vyplyva z toho, ze vnimanie nemoze byt izolovania funkcia, ale musi sluzit funkciam relevantnym pre prezitie organizmu. Od toho mame mechanizmus pozornosti, ktora prideluje kognitivne zroje do spracovania infomacii relevatnych k aktualnych cielom - ci uz zdola (zrak ti pritiahne obrazok ceckov) alebo top-down(musim teraz docitat toto strasne nudne interview, aby som sa k nemu mohla vyjadrit).

Vnimanie tiez nemoze ist jednym smerom, pretoze by to strasne vypocetne narocne, ale zaklada sa na existujucich konceptoch, pamati, predpokladoch, vnimanych tvaroch, etc. Dokladaju to neurovedne vyzkumy, kde aktivita v oblastiach, ktore su vyssie po kognitivnom streame dokaze predikovat aktivitu v zakladnejsich oblastiach. Mozme si to predstavit na zrakovom kortexe - oblasti, ktore rozlisuju vysokourovnove chrakteritiky (napr. tvare) ovplyvnuju aktivitu v oblastiach, ktore rozlisuju nizkourovnove charakteristiky (napr. izoluju jednotli linie utvaru).

(ale tym som len chcela dolozit, ze vnimanie je interaktivne a rekurzivne - preto je preskakovanie na relevantne informacie prirodzenejsie ako linearne skenovanie prudu informacii)


Co sa tyka argumentu z autority, chlapik je e:popredny neurolog, ale nieje predny kognitivny vedec - a to je tema, ku ktorej sa v tomto pripade vyjadruje. Neurologia je aplikovany obor mediciny zamerany na liecbu poruch nervoveho systemu. Kognitivne vedy su oblast zakladneho vyzkume medzi biologiou, psychologiou, medicinou a informatikou. Je to ako keby sa predny raketovy inzinier vyjadroval k fyzike. Informativne urcite, ale nie smerodajne.


edit: medzitym som si ho vygooglila a nenasla som od neho ani jeden peer-review clanok a nieje ani primar neurologie na Yale.

V ceskom CV ma "Primář neurologie, Yale New Haven Medical Center a přidělené nemocnice", ale na strankach nemocnice je ako neurologist-in-chief uvedeny niekto iny https://medicine.yale.edu/neurology/people/. Na stranach skoly/nemocnice existuje iba ako assistant professor (to je ucitelska funcia, to som v podstate aj ja) a attending physician (tj. radovy neurolog), podla titulov teda neni profesor, dokonca nema ani PhD - je len doktor mediciny. Ma to tak aj vo svojom CVcku na strankach skoly, kde sa ziadna funkcia primara nezmienuje: https://medicine.yale.edu/profile/martin_stransky/

Teda sa neda usudzovat, ze je popredny neurolog a odbornik, pravdu ma pht dole, ktory vravi, ze je to politik s lekarskym bcgroundom. ale je velmi dobry v sebaprezentaci hraniciacej s ojebavanim, pretoze spravne ocakava, ze si ani taky inteligentny a rozhladeny clovek ako ty jeho CVcko neoveri.

Vyřazení sociální sítě Parler z provozu, které bylo de facto realizováno rozhodnutím jen tří firem (Apple, Google a Amazon), přivedlo hodně lidí k otázce, co se stalo s původním decentralizovaným charakterem internetu. Celosvětová informační síť byla původně založena právě na tom, že nemá žádný „centrální bod“, který by se dal vyřadit. Je potomkem ARPANETu, vojenského projektu ze 70. let 20. století, který měl být rezistentní i v případě jaderného úderu na území Spojených států.

A psychoanalytic reading of social media and the death drive
MAX READ
https://www.bookforum.com/print/2703/a-psychoanalytic-reading-of-social-media-and-the-death-drive-24171

The writing and thinking emerging from the anti-social-media “techlash” of the past few years has tended to focus on malevolent design choices and business models that supposedly keep users hooked on the big platforms. “The problem,” ex-Google “design ethicist” Tristan Harris told Wired in 2017, “is the hijacking of the human mind.” According to tech critics and industry apostates like Harris and former Facebookers Sean Parker and Chamath Palihapitiya, the brains of users are overtaken by “dopamine feedback loops” “exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology” to reap profits from an attention-driven business model. But as radical (and conspiratorial) as such explanations of social media’s power might sound, they rely on the same techno-determinism that Silicon Valley’s boosters have been pushing for decades: just as networks would inevitably turn everyone into a liberal democratic subject, they now inevitably turn us into slavering zombies. Fundamentally conservative, this school of thought finds its solutions in narrow technical reformism: tweak this algorithm, move these numbers, ban these users, and everything will be fixed.

It’s not that the accounts of people like Harris are illegitimate—the social industry was designed as a behavioralist casino; it relates to us, even constitutes us, as addicts, “users” whose natural state is devoted attention to the object of our addiction. But such techno-determinism renders all of us passive objects, our very brain chemistry at the mercy of a small handful of Harvard dorks with admin privileges. Are we really captive to our devices in quite so direct or helpless away? Seymour doesn’t buy it, and worries that just-so stories about addiction are disempowering and limiting. “To reduce experience to chemistry”—those dreaded dopamine feedback loops—“is to bypass what is essential to it: its meaning,” he writes. His rejection of determinism isn’t a recourse to personal responsibility, but a warning: regulation will not cure us, and reform won’t save us. If we live in a “horror story, the horror must partly lie in the user.”

...

The social industry doesn’t just eat our time with endless stimulus and algorithmic scrolling; it eats our time by creating and promoting people who exist only to be explained to, people to whom the world has been created anew every morning, people for whom every settled sociological, scientific, and political argument of modernity must be rehashed, rewritten, and re-accounted, this time with their participation.

These people, with their just-asking questions and vapid open letters, are dullards and bores, pettifoggers and casuists, cowards and dissemblers, time-wasters of the worst sort. But Seymour’s book suggests something worse about us, their Twitter and Facebook interlocutors: That we want to waste our time. That, however much we might complain, we find satisfaction in endless, circular argument. That we get some kind of fulfillment from tedious debates about “free speech” and “cancel culture.” That we seek oblivion in discourse. In the machine-flow atemporality of social media, this seems like no great crime. If time is an infinite resource, why not spend a few decades of it with a couple New York Times op-ed columnists, rebuilding all of Western thought from first principles? But political and economic and immunological crises pile on one another in succession, over the background roar of ecological collapse. Time is not infinite. None of us can afford to spend what is left of it dallying with the stupid and bland.ew decades of it with a couple New York Times op-ed columnists, rebuilding all of Western thought from first principles?

There is no power on this earth that is capable of holding Facebook to account. No legislature, no law enforcement agency, no regulator. Congress has failed. The EU has failed. When the Federal Trade Commission fined it a record $5bn for its role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, its stock price actually went up.

Factors related to parent ratings of young children’s (mean age = 3.72, range = 3–6) fidgeting and reports of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) were examined in a nationally representative sample of US families via the National Household Education Surveys. In structural equation models, the number of television hours viewed daily was associated with more fidgeting (a sign of hyperactivity), which, in turn, was related to ADHD, when controlling for race/ethnicity, SES, family structure, autism, emotional disturbance and gender. The home literacy environment (shared reading, children’s books and library visits) was negatively associated with both fidgeting and hours of television. Home literacy was indirectly negatively related with ADHD via fidgeting. Boys and children with autism fidgeted more frequently, where as children from two-parent families were less likely to have ADHD. Overworked parents allowed more television viewing than other parents. The implications for future studies involving television viewing, home literacy, attention and hyperactivity are discussed.

Keywords: parent involvement, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, home literacy, television, ADHD, children

Oh toto presne. Sledujem to realtime na kolegyni. Jej dcera nastupila minuly september na skolu, ktora ma surveillance system ako vaznica. Vsetko co, kedy a kde dieta pocas pobytu v skole robi (vratane toho ci, kedy a co obedovalo) sa zaznamenava do aplikacie, do ktorej ma rodic pristup a je o vsetkom notifikovany.
Spociatku tvrdila, ako jej to pride strasne a odmietala aplikaciu pouzivat, notifikacie mala vypnute a tak. Koncom roka uz mala notifikacie zapnute, ze pre istotu, ak by sa nieco stalo. Teraz checkuje kazde pipnutie a pridala tracking appku aj na cas mimo skoly. Pre istotu...

One of my fondest memories from late elementary school is walking a mile home with a pack of friends. It’s a composite of many days when we’d stop at a park next to the train station on our way home and play tag or swing, our legs pumping in the cool fall air. Our parents didn’t know our exact coordinates, and they didn’t seem to care that we didn’t come home at the same time every day. I recall feeling high on that freedom — it’s a feeling I want my kids to have, too.

This vision of childhood seems harder and harder to realize today.

GPS tracking of such young children is so new, there isn’t reliable research on it — most of the research about children and smartwatches is about weight loss using the pedometer function. With that caveat in mind, the child development experts I spoke to were concerned that tracking young children may get in the way of their developing autonomy and responsibility, and it may also make them more anxious. After all, adults feel completely freaked out when they discover their location is being tracked without their active consent — why wouldn’t kids?

During the elementary school years, children should become more and more responsible and independent, and we need to give them appropriate boundaries. If you tell them that they’re not allowed to leave the neighborhood, and they need to be home at a certain time but you’re still monitoring their movements, that’s a problem.

“You’re trusting a device instead of trusting your child,” said Sally Beville Hunter, assistant clinical professor in child and family studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

They might not be learning critical skills like knowing where they are and keeping track of time, if they know their parents will be yelling at them through a smartwatch to come home for dinner, Dr. Hunter said. Children’s brains are still developing. If you don’t let them develop these skills, she said, “The part of their brain that’s supposed to be maturing in a more responsible way has shifted.”

British Grading Debacle Shows Pitfalls of Automating Government
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/20/world/europe/uk-england-grading-algorithm.html

LONDON — Even after a final term with schools closed for the pandemic, Sam Sharpe-Roe was optimistic about the coming school year. Teachers from his West London school had given him grades — three A’s and one B — that were strong enough to secure him a spot at his first choice of university next month.

But after the British government used a computer-generated score to replace exams that were canceled because of the coronavirus, all his grades fell and the college revoked his admission.

Mr. Sharpe-Roe, along with thousands of other students and parents, had received a crude lesson in what can go wrong when a government relies on an algorithm to make important decisions affecting the public.

Experts said the grading scandal was a sign of debates to come as Britain and other countries increasingly use technology to automate public services, arguing that it can make government more efficient and remove human prejudices.

But critics say the opaque systems often amplify biases that already exist in society and are typically adopted without sufficient debate, faults that were put on clear display in the grading disaster.

Nearly 40 percent of students in England saw their grades reduced after the government re-evaluated the exams, known as A-levels, with the software model. It included in its calculations a school’s past performance on the tests and a student’s earlier results on “mock” exams.

Government officials said the model was meant to make the system more fair, balancing out potentially inflated scores given by some teachers. But students and their parents, particularly those from lower-income areas with struggling schools, were outraged that their futures had been turned over to lines of code that favored students from private schools and wealthy areas.

https://www.studyfinds.org/digital-overload-average-adult-will-spend-34-years-of-their-life-staring-at-screens/

A poll of 2,000 British adults, commissioned by Vision Direct, found that the typical person will spend a staggering 34 years looking at phones, computers, or televisions. During the typical adult lifespan, from ages 18-81, researchers say a person will be glued to their screens for over 13 hours a day.

That adds up to 4,866 hours each year and a stunning 301,733 hours throughout those 62 adult years. Those figures have seen a big spike during the coronavirus pandemic, with the poll finding that video calls have doubled during the quarantine.

demokratizacia pravdy - https://aeon.co/ideas/say-goodbye-to-the-information-age-its-all-about-reputation-now

My reasons for believing that the Moon landing took place go far beyond the evidence I can gather and double-check about the event itself. In those years, we trusted a democracy such as the US to have a justified reputation for sincerity. Without an evaluative judgment about the reliability of a certain source of information, that information is, for all practical purposes, useless.
