Digital culture. Digital life. Let’s call it Digitopia.
Not utopia, where everything is awesome. Not dystopia, where everything is a nightmare. Digitopia. Where everything is... what?
Digitopia is whatever we make it.
So what will we make it? How should we live it?
Or should we support the RIAA and DMCA, which clamp down on anything and anyone that challenges copyright, ownership, authorship, intellectual property and other vital principles of the democratic free market? (And that includes you, mp4 and bittorrent pirate that you almost certainly are!)
Should we emphasize openness - and sharing yourself all the time on your social networks - because the more transparent we all are the more honest we'll have to be?
Or should we emphasize security - don't touch that dial! Don't share that info! Don't let anyone see! - because your data might come back to haunt you? (And sooner than you think!)
Should we look forward to open governments using open data and the rise of digitally-empowered civil society, or should we fear our governments reading all our email (they already do!) and the rise of the surveillance society?
At The Media League we're looking to you, the first fully digital generation, to map the future of our everchanging online universe and to start to answer these challenging questions. Because the rules are always changing. Hell, more and more there are no rules!
And so that is your Game Challenge: tell us about the rules as you live them. Show us where digital fun bumps up against digital scary, where digital smart bumps up against digital dumb, where digital desire bumps up against digital control. What does it mean to be a digital citizen, to live life to the fullest online, but to do so without hurting others, or yourself? Is it even possible?
Welcome to Digitopia. Tell us what you see... in images, in music, in poems, in whatever medium you call home.
Ted Talks are always a great place to start for ideas.
And on Rhizome you’ll find artists exploring all kinds of digital dreams.
And of course Wired has been exploring and documenting digital life since the beginning.
Meanwhile there are a lot of different organizations trying to make Digitopia as innovative, open and democratic as possible, like The P2P Foundation, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Kiva, Avaaz, and The Pew Research Center, to name a few. Common Sense Media has a lot of down-to-earth videos of teens talking about Cyberbullying, Sexting, Digital Footprints and more. Lastly, here's an old-but-still-provocative article by the Media League's Commissioner called Stopping The Copyright Wars of 2017. Any or all of these are good places to start. Where you end up is another story... yours.
