[The Delugde of Spurious Correlations in Big Data] (Calude & Longo, 2016)
: A 2016 mathematical proof that demonstrates the fallacy of the market-driven,
anti-scientific Big Data ideology, that “computer-discovered correlations
should replace understanding and guide prediction and action.” In fact,
“[t]oo much information tends to behave like very little information. The
scientific method can be enriched by computer mining in immense databases, but
not replaced by it.” The aim of the authors is “to document the danger of
allowing the search of correlations in big data to subsume and replace the

: Xerox PARC has been one of the epicenters of theoretical and practical
computer development in the Silicon Valley. This article predicts the
disappearance of computers in our Century by ubiquity. “There is more
information available at our fingertips during a walk in the woods than in any
computer system, yet people find a walk among trees relaxing and computers
frustrating. Machines that fit the human environment instead of forcing humans
to enter theirs will make using a computer as refreshing as taking a walk in

[Collaboratively mapping alternative economies Co-producing transformative knowledge] (Labaeye, 2017)
: > One of the critical factors of digital knowledge is the ‘hyperchange’ of
technologies and social networks that affects every aspect of how knowledge is
managed and governed, including how it is generated, stored, and preserved.
(Hess and Ostrom, 2007, p. 9).
Hess and Ostrom (2007), argued that digital technologies redefine knowledge as
a commons, meaning, as a resource shared by a group of people that is
vulnerable to social dilemmas (Hess and Ostrom, 2007, p. 3).
Understanding knowledge as a commons offers a new lens for considering the
question of ownership in the process of knowledge production and its
[…] This leads to the formulation of the hypothesis that licenses and
infrastructure provision do play a central role in defining how mappings of
alternative economies unfold.
