Truth in numbers?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After viewing this provocative documentary, you will never look at Wikipedia the same way. Filmmakers Scott Glosserman and Nic Hill engagingly explore the history and cultural implications of one of the most traveled and referenced sites on the Internet. A whole range of opinion is expressed about the impact of Wikipedia on the archiving of learning, from interviews with founder Jimmy Wales to commentators suspicious of the site's supposed neutrality. The documentary delves into the EssJay controversy in which a Wikipedian made false claims about his academic credentials and the battle over journalist John Seigenthaler's inaccurate entry. Evenhandedly weaving multiple perspectives about the impact of Wikipedia, the film provokes a deeper conversation on how knowledge is formed and what future generations will learn about history and the world."--Container

"We live in a world where an epidemic in Mexico affects lives in Europe, air pollution in China disturbs crops in Bangladesh, and financial disaster in the U.S. impacts economic growth everywhere. Given this high level of interdependence, isn't it more important than ever to be aware of the effect of our actions on the rest of the planet? Filmmaker Jian Yi and his team discussed this question with people from a variety of backgrounds on five different continents. The respondents' thoughts, offered in this documentary, represent the views of businesspeople and artists, students and theologians, as well as a Nobel laureate, a UN economist, and an Internet guru. Inspired by the work of Hakan Altinay (Global Civics: Responsibilities and Rights in an Interdependent World), the film calls for an increased sense of social responsibility.

Who is Who? by Niklaus Spoerri( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

I leave it up to the subjects themselves and their look-alike figure and observe how they project themselves in front of the camera, how few or how many signs they make to reveal 'their own' original person within", says Niklaus Spoerri.

WEB: Connecting is just the Beginning( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In remote villages in the Amazon Jungle and Andes Mountains, a group of children are about to gain access to computers and the internet for the first time. WEB documents their experience with the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program, and ponders both the benefits and complications that are arising from our increasing digital interconnectivity. Alongside the poignant and sometimes humorous local stories, WEB includes interviews with leading thinkers on the internet including Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley, Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales, and OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte. The students loved the documentary. I thought the film was very balanced and nuanced in presenting the impact of globalization in rural areas of Latin America. It lined up an impressive array of experts to weigh in on the topic, but the Peruvians featured in the film were unforgettable and contributed the ideas that I think will stay with the students. - Camilla Stevens, Department of Latino and Hispanic Carribean Studies, Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences WEB raises serious and intriguing questions about the benefits - and drawbacks - that technologically-based interconnectivity will bring to heretofore comparatively isolated tribal cultures. Recommended. - Video Librarian A fascinating global odyssey ... WEB is both a paean to and critique of burgeoning global media, and extremely entertaining. - The Village Voice
