Festival passions, recorded and hidden in your cell phones

July 29th, 2012 by Graham Attwell

This is a Bing generated translation from an entry on the SMIAF festival page on Facebook by Lorenzo Bugli.

But it is not bad and gives an idea of what Dirk and I are doing next weekend. I really like the idea of “passions, recorded and hidden in your cell phones”. Details to follow in next 48 hours 🙂

“WEB RADIO: SMIAF presentation during the days of the festival (3-4-5 August), Graham Attwell (Wales) and Dirk Stieglitz (Germany), employees of the University of Bremen, will take care of the post-broadcasting, at European level, of the bands and groups of the Festival through 2012 SMIAF web radio: an attempt of digitalize San Marino and its services.

From Friday, August 19, 3 hours by visiting, you can watch live concerts of the evening, then continue during Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 (from 17 onwards) with a respectable schedule: interviews with the artists, staff and visitors of the 5th Edition, chats, posts of guests and participants in workshops, the whole interspersed by good music programme directly from the Workstation 6 (Bruno Reffi).

The invitation is also to come forward, tell her why not, share their music and their passions, recorded and hidden in your cell phones, iPhones and other devices. In programming, a special moment will be dedicated to the theme “a digital agenda for San Marino ( to begin to collect and share cutting-edge ideas to make our Republic about the digitalization of services and possibilities offered by” digital society “. Graham and Dirk, now European fans of SMIAF, founded in 1999 the Pontydysgu Ltd., which deals with new technologies, education and sharing of knowledge. Present in San Marino at the festival for the second year in a row, along with the organisers, European friends and young staff will create the SMIAF WEB RADIO!.”

In (probably rather better) Italian:

“Durante i giorni del festival (3-4-5 agosto), Graham Attwell (Galles) e Dirk Stieglitz (Germania), collaboratori dell’UniversitĂ  di Brema, si occuperanno del post-broadcasting, a livello EUROPEO, delle band e dei gruppi del Festival 2012 tramite la SMIAF web radio: un tentativo di digitalizzare San Marino e i suoi servizi. Da venerdì 3 Agosto ore 19, visitando il sito, si potranno seguire in diretta i concerti della serata, per poi proseguire durante sabato 4 e domenica 5 (dalle 17 in poi) con un palinsesto di tutto rispetto: interviste agli artisti, allo staff e ai visitatori della V edizione, chiacchierate di passaggio, interventi di ospiti e partecipanti ai workshop, il tutto intervallato dalla buona musica in programma, direttamente dalla postazione 6 (Campo Bruno Reffi). L’invito è anche quello di farsi avanti, dire la propria e perchĂ© no, condividere la propria musica e le proprie passioni, registrate e nascoste nei vostri cellulari, iphone e altri dispositivi. All’interno della programmazione, un momento particolare verrĂ  dedicato al tema “Un’agenda digitale per San Marino” ( per iniziare a raccogliere e condividere idee per rendere all’avanguardia la nostra Repubblica circa la digitalizzazione dei servizi e le possibilitĂ  offerte dalla “digital society”. Graham e Dirk, ormai fans europei dello SMIAF, hanno fondato nel 1999 la Pontydysgu Ltd, che si occupa di nuove tecnologie, pedagogia e condivisione dei saperi. Presenti a San Marino al festival per il secondo anno consecutivo, insieme agli organizzatori, amici europei e giovani dello staff, daranno vita alla SMIAF WEB RADIO!”

    Racial bias in algorithms

    From the UK Open Data Institute’s Week in Data newsletter

    This week, Twitter apologised for racial bias within its image-cropping algorithm. The feature is designed to automatically crop images to highlight focal points – including faces. But, Twitter users discovered that, in practice, white faces were focused on, and black faces were cropped out. And, Twitter isn’t the only platform struggling with its algorithm – YouTube has also announced plans to bring back higher levels of human moderation for removing content, after its AI-centred approach resulted in over-censorship, with videos being removed at far higher rates than with human moderators.

    Gap between rich and poor university students widest for 12 years

    Via The Canary.

    The gap between poor students and their more affluent peers attending university has widened to its largest point for 12 years, according to data published by the Department for Education (DfE).

    Better-off pupils are significantly more likely to go to university than their more disadvantaged peers. And the gap between the two groups – 18.8 percentage points – is the widest it’s been since 2006/07.

    The latest statistics show that 26.3% of pupils eligible for FSMs went on to university in 2018/19, compared with 45.1% of those who did not receive free meals. Only 12.7% of white British males who were eligible for FSMs went to university by the age of 19. The progression rate has fallen slightly for the first time since 2011/12, according to the DfE analysis.
