“[Social media used during popular TV shows like] “Scandal has brought back the lost art of must-see TV,” said Janet Sternberg, assistant professor of communication and media studies at Fordham University. “Since the days of the VCR, we’ve had less and less reason to watch the same things at the same time.””

Misbehavior in Cyber Places: The Regulation of Online Conduct in Virtual Communities on the Internet


Sep 19
My book is coming out soon! Summary: Misbehavior in Cyber Places studies computer-mediated, interpersonal communication on the Internet up to the turn of the century, portraying a technological universe that existed before social media, smartphones, and commercialism began to dominate cyberspace in the new millennium. Here, with amateurs prevailing over professionals, digital immigrants explored online frontiers and founded virtual communities. Based on early stages of Internet research, this book examines misbehavior across a wide range of online environments. Sternberg distinguishes misbehavior and rule-breaking from crime and law-breaking, and discusses cybercrime, cyberlaw, and the differences between local and global regulation. This book lays out the theoretical framework and fundamental ideas of media ecology, a branch of communication scholarship. Sternberg highlights pioneering media ecology perspectives on space, place, situations, rules, and behavior in public. These subjects are highly relevant for understanding digital media, mediated interpersonal communication, and behavior in online environments. 2012 University Press of America, Inc.ISBN 9780761860112

Leitura da tradução em português por Janet Sternberg do ensaio “Curiosidade” escrito por Clara T. Ma, vencedora do concurso de nomeação do Mars Science Laboratory da NASA.

Reading of Portuguese translation by Janet Sternberg of the “Curiority” essay written by Clara T. Ma, winner of the NASA Mars Science Laboratory naming contest.

Curiosidade

O seguinte é o ensaio escrito por Clara Ma, vencedora do concurso de nomeação do Mars Science Laboratory. Doze anos de idade, Ma apresentou a proposta vencedora, “Curiosidade.”

A curiosidade é uma chama eterna que arde na mente de todos. Me faz levantar da cama de manhã e me perguntar quais surpresas a vida vai me trazer neste dia. A curiosidade é uma força tão poderosa. Sem ela, não seríamos quem somos hoje. Quando era mais nova, eu me perguntava: ‘Por que o céu é azul?’, ‘Por que as estrelas cintilam?’, ‘Por que eu sou eu?’, e ainda continuo assim. Eu tinha tantas perguntas, e América é o lugar onde quero achar minhas respostas. A curiosidade é a paixão que nos dirige pelas nossas vidas cotidianas. Nos tornamos investigadores e cientistas com nossa necessidade de fazer perguntas e de querer saber. Com certeza, há muitos riscos e perigos, mas apesar disso, ainda continuamos a querer saber e sonhar e criar e ter esperança. Já descobrimos tanto sobre o mundo, mas ainda tão pouco. Nunca vamos saber tudo que há para saber, mas com a nossa curiosidade ardente, já aprendemos muito.
