Facts and cats. For State of the net 2016

Facts are those little nasty things that divide the way people are and the way people would like to be. At least in times of crisis, facts are unpopular. In fact, at present, we tend to complain much about facts: 1. Because they are too many (filter failures, information overload) 2. Because it is difficult to tell which facts are true or not true 3. Because they are less and less useful in a society in which people don’t see facts the same way, diminishing the value of facts. Brexit and post-truth policy in America – as elsewhere – are about the end of facts as commons. As...

Dear American People

Dear American People for more than 50 years, Italians looked up to America and believed to see their future. Italians knew that what was happening in America, was going to happen in Italy in the future. America was a leader, in terms of economy, technology and politics. But now we sort of feel the opposite. Americans risk to be choosing, for their future, something that Italians have already experienced in their past.

When… from Paris to inside us

The emotion for the massacre of Paris is seething. In Paris I studied. I found friends for life. I suffered the disappearance of the great masters. I worked. I spent some wonderful moments with my loved ones. I cry for the massacre. I listen to the real experts’ recipes and I hope they will find a sensible solution. I can only think. And here is what I think. It is not the first time that this sort of thing happens. We were not always victims. The Europeans have often done the same to other people in the past. When British politicians and soldiers fired on the crowd calling for non-violent...

Can journalism be the next big thing? Notes during #SEEMF2015

What publishers use to call “new technologies” are not new anymore. The audience lives in a digitized world using more and more the smartphone to connect, record and compute relevant information and giving to it most of its time and attention. What is less and less understandable for them is the set of activities that didn’t adapt to this environment. Examples? Public administration, politics, and often, newspapers. The infosphere is real now. And it has problems. Journalism has a future. If it doesn’t think at “digital” as “the uncertain...
