#LowTechLabLondon2016

#LowTechLabLondon2016 is a project developed by Raúl Marroquín and coordinated by Daniela Medina Poch for the Educational Program of the Saatchi Gallery that will take place on January 15th, 16th and 17th of 2016.

“‘LowTech means technology that is cheap or free.”
James Wallback, LowTech Manifest for The Next 5 Minutes conference in Amsterdam, March 1999.

This experiment is inspired in the role artists have had in the development of technologies and innovation from very early stages. To mention a few, alchemy in the Middle Ages, multidisciplinary advancements throughout the Renaissance and more recently during the second half of the XXth Century and the first decade of this millennium: Video of the 1960’s and 1970’s, cable television of the 1980’s and 1990’s (USA & Canada and later in the Netherlands and Continental Europe) digital communications of the first decade of the 2000’s up to the present with user information and communication platforms, internet, streaming mobile, social media, augmented reality, etc.

As Klaus Fruchtnis mentions: “LowTech applied to communications has given the possibility of having a more exhaustive control in the management of information.”

Today artists continue to play a crucial role in the development of hardware, software and applications. The last four decades are full of examples; to mention a few: “Music Video” is based in the progress and achievements of video artists in the 1960 – 1980’s, video and media art have also influenced audio visuals in education, news gathering and journalism, activism and, last but not least, the advertisement industry.

#LowTechLabLondon2016 is a three day lab that makes use of LowTech, user and discarded technologies coupled with the repurposing of existing hardware and other facilities. It involves those present at the Educational Space of the Saatchi Gallery taking part from tabletop stations devised to interact in one-to-one and one-to-few engagements, as well as remote contributors from abroad, via social media: WhatsApp, Illustrated Twitter, SnapChat, video conferencing and live streams.

The aim of #LowTechLabLondon2016 is to generate a brief, concise and powerful event, that will include artists, students (PCA, Paris and Universidad Nacional, Bogotá, and others) musicians, writers, stage actors and directors, academics, researchers, journalists, politicians and designers realising artworks, workshops, tutorials, experiments: successes and failures, processes, interviews and discussions, presentations, discussions, performances and recitals, as well as urban bootcamps, klutges, scale models and prototypes either live or transmitted from other locations in London, the continent and the Americas.

One of the goals of the lab is to monitor the developments of LowTech throughout the last 50 years and how it has been redefined through the beginning of the second half of the XXth century. From low quality and low resolution, evolving into current user technologies were, for instance, average phone cameras are better than a betacam of 30 years ago, the LowTech have expanded and transformed into user technology.

Additional to the activities taking place at the Educational Space and taking into account the historical past of the area: Kings Road, the Punk Movement, etc, the lab includes works realised outdoors on locations such as streets, parks, shops, bars and terraces near the location of the gallery.

Social Media plays an important role in the daily coverage of the experiment: Everything will be streamed via Periscope, LiveStream, YouTube Live and ephemeral platforms like SnapChat.
A final publication will round up the event.

This event is produced in collaboration with PCA Master’s students in Transdisicplinary New Media.

French Competition Authority to market test Canalsat-TPS merger

The investigation services of the French Competition Authority have begun a market test to gain stakeholder views on possible solutions that could address the effects of the TPS-Canalsat merger.

The market test will focus on whether any anti-competitive effects have resulted from the merger and will include some measures that were suggested by market players. It will, says the Authority, provide, in a transparent way, “the opportunity for interested stakeholders to share their analysis on remedies that could be deemed necessary at the end of the procedure.”

Interested stakeholders can submit their comments by Wednesday 6 June 2012.

Following the 2007 merger and acquisition by Canal+ group of TPS activities, 59 commitments had been implemented by the parties. On 20 September 2011, the Competition Authority established that 10 of these commitments were breached by the parties and decided to withdraw its decision to authorise the merger.

As a consequence, on 24 October 2011 the Vivendi and Canal Plus groups, which simultaneously filed an appeal against the Authority’s withdrawal decision before French Administrative Supreme Court, Conseil d’Etat, changed the terms of their acquisition of sole control of TPS and CanalSatellite. The application was then completed by the parties at the request of the investigation services. On 28 March 2012, an in-depth examination of the merger was opened.

Google Joins Global Innovators at CommunicAsia2012

SINGAPORE, 29 MAY 2012 – Industry giant Google, is set to join a host of industry experts and thought leaders at the Marina Bay Sands next month for the leading global event in converging broadcast and telecommunications. CommunicAsia2012 organisers have announced that Ms. Aliza Knox, Managing Director of Commerce for Google Asia Pacific, will deliver the Visionary Address on Wednesday 20 June, at the CommunicAsia2012 Summit, focusing on how ‘Asia defines the Internet’ by following the trajectory of the smartphone across Asia and how it can lead to a better understanding of the region’s current and future growth.

Until recently mobile-internet innovations in one Asian country had little impact on its immediate neighbours, which effectively meant the region was growing apart. Now that’s changing and Asia is growing together. Ms. Knox, who joined Google in 2007, has been responsible for creating a major brand presence in Singapore and for driving the company’s strategy and growth across APAC.
Ms. Knox comments, “CommunicAsia2012 Summit is an exciting space to discuss the latest technological developments taking place in the Asia Pacific region. It is my great pleasure to present the Visionary Address at this international platform. I am excited to share my views on these developments, especially of the smartphone, with fellow colleagues from the industry, and how technology has changed and enabled businesses in Asia to grow.”
Delegates at the CommunicAsia2012 Summit can look forward to over 170 conference sessions, workshops, and panel discussions that will foster dialogue among industry and government leaders, and provide executive insights and analysis on the exciting ICT developments across the globe.
A wide range of topics from cloud computing to mobile marketing will be presented by prominent speakers such as Mr. Simone Brunozzi, Technology Evangelist, Asia Pacific, Amazon Web Services; Mr. Dan Scoffer, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, VeriFone; Mr. Vivek Jhamb, Senior Vice-President, Vodafone Global Enterprise, India; Mr. Christian Geissendoerfer, CEO of Yoose; Mr. Wayne Purboo, President, CEO & Co-Founder, QuickPlay Media; Mr. Rodrigo Donazzolo, Head of IP Interoperability, BT Global Telecom Markets Asia Pacific, and many more.
 
Mobile technology will be a key focus at the CommunicAsia2012 Summit and will feature dedicated workshops on mobile marketing strategies and mobile security. Other tracks include next-generation broadband, satellite communications, cloud computing, over the top technologies (OTT), customer experience management and augmented reality strategies.
“As mobile technologies transform the ICT landscape and revolutionise business models and marketing approaches, understanding this small but powerful device is vital to manoeuvring through the future ICT landscape. CommunicAsia2012 Summit brings together industry thought leaders, government ministries and international industry associations to generate in-depth discussion and knowledge sharing of strategies and solutions,” says Ms. Lindy Wee, Director of PR and Conferences from event organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services (SES).
Delegates at the Summit can also experience these technologies first hand at the exhibition hall, where more than 200 debut exhibitors will be located. These exhibitors will be sharing their expertise and showcasing their newest and latest products and solutions at CommunicAsia2012.

In online video, minorities find an audience – By Hayley Tsukayama

A disproportionate share of YouTube’s top personalities are minorities, a striking contrast to the most popular shows on mainstream television, where the stars are largely white. These minority-produced, home-grown shows are drawing massive audiences — the top one has 5.2 million subscribers — enough to attract the attention of major advertisers.

On Wu’s videos, ads for Mazda and Toyota pop up. Michelle Phan, a Vietnamese American beauty guru, who ranks 20th among YouTube’s most popular channels, has become a spokeswoman for Lancome. YouTube declined to reveal how much such producers earn, but it says hundreds of them make at least six figures annually.

“A lot of U.S. marketers are leaving minority audiences on the table,” said Seneca Mudd, the director of industry initiatives at the Interactive Advertising Bureau. “Advertisers would ignore that trend at their own peril.”

Among the 20 most-subscribed-to channels on YouTube, eight feature minorities. Most are Asian American. Many more black and Latino shows populate the top 50. These producers are also finding an audience that has been largely neglected by Hollywood. Nearly 80 percent of minorities regularly watch online videos, compared with less than 70 percent of whites, the Pew Internet & American Life Project says.

Wu, who ranks 11th among YouTube channels, said he does not intentionally target Asian American issues. But those viewers more easily understand his jokes on dating, stereotypes and the generational clash between parents and kids, he said. “I just tell my stories honestly, and usually Asian Americans will relate to me because they say, ‘That’s how I am and with my parents,’ ” he said.

Added Phan: “If you look at mainstream media, there aren’t many Asian Americans. But it’s also shown non-Asians that they’re not that different from a girl with a different skin tone and a different background.”

Analysts say the trend of minority content on YouTube makes sense. Networks feel pressure to appeal to a broader audience, but Internet video can thrive by just targeting niches because the cost of producing a show is so low, said David Bushman, television curator for the Paley Center for Media.

But the audience for shows like those of Wu and Phan extends beyond their niche. The viewership numbers are eye-popping. Ryan Higa, a Japanese American comedian, has 5.2 million subscribers, second among all YouTube channels, according to the company. In total, his videos have been viewed 1.1 billion times.

Wu has 2.3 million subscribers, but often many more than that watch individual shows. While precise numbers are not available, a large majority of his users live in the United States, YouTube says. The same is true of other minority content producers.

Other analysts note that these figures cannot be neatly compared with Nielsen television ratings, which measure the U.S. audience tuning in to programs on the day they air, both live and on DVR.

Still, the growing popularity of online video — and the time it is taking away from other types of media — is turning heads in traditional studios, experts say.

For minorities, the medium offers a way to push back against stereotypes on network television, said Maureen Guthman, the head of brand strategy and acquisitions for the African American-focused channel TV One. Blacks can present themselves “completely unfiltered and without [someone] telling us, ‘You’ve got to be more this’ or ‘You’ve got to be more that,’ ” she said.

Although much of what’s on YouTube is raw, the production behind some of the shows is growing more sophisticated. Tutele, a popular Hispanic American channel, was launched by Maker Studios, a company with 70 million subscribers over 400 YouTube channels. Maker, which is also behind YouTube’s biggest hit, Ray William Johnson, also recently snagged former Disney vice president Chris Williams to be its chief programming officer.

“The Internet is moving so quickly in many directions that it’s hard to predict,” Guthman said. “I see some sort of merging” between online video and traditional television, she said.

It’s too early to say how this will play out, but a shift is coming, said Forrester analyst James McQuivey. Future content producers might choose to bypass the networks altogether, for instance, because they can go to advertisers directly with proof that there’s a demand for their content, he said.

“That may not be the case when you’re Joss Whedon or J.J. Abrams, but what about the next J.J. Abrams?” he said. “Will that person ever do a network television deal? I don’t think so.”

Regardless of the future of television, McQuivey said, the trend of minorities on online video is welcome.

“There’s a thriving opportunity for any of these groups to see a rise of content targeted at them from their own people,” he said, “and that will be a great thing.”
