Le goût du moche : c’est tendance [Ghislain Deslandes]

21 septembre 2021

Third world failed states, vassal regimes with no sovereignty, collapsing civilizations share in common an obsessive tendency towards policing voices, ideas & opinions! Intellectual boldness, freedom of conscience & cultural emancipation from the dominant narrative are the unique way of salvation for mankind! #OMNIS451

« For we are opposed around the world
By a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy
That relies primarily
On covert means for expanding
Its sphere of influence
On infiltration instead of invasion
On subversion instead of elections
On intimidation instead of free choice
On guerrillas by night
Instead of armies by day it is a system which has conscripted
Vast human and material resources
Into the building
Of a tightly-knit, highly efficient
Machine that combines military, diplomatic
Intelligence, economic, scientific
And political operations.
Its preparations are concealed
Not published.
Its mistakes are buried

Not headlined.
Its dissenters are silenced, not praised

29 visually striking martech stack illustrations from the 2021 Stackie Awards


Every year, when the entries to the Stackie Awards flow in, I feel like the kid in A Christmas Story, excitedly opening up that present he’d be dreaming of. I am always delighted and inspired by the creative ways marketing teams visually represent their stacks — and so immensely grateful that they were willing to share them with our community.

This year, we had 29 beautifully illustrated martech stacks sent in.

29 Martech Stacks from the 2021 MarTech Stackie Awards

They included several returning contributors from previous years, such as BrighttailJuniper NetworksLocalActPitchBookPhilipsProgressSargento, and SAS. These are great because they provide a glimpse into the evolution of stacks at these companies.

But we also had new contributors including AutodeskBetwayItaú UnibancoLyra HealthMerkleQuest DiagnosticsUnderworksUnited Healthcare, and Verizon. I love the diverse range of companies and industries these entries represent.

In addition to providing valuable insight to the martech community, these contributors raised $2,900 for the non-profit COOP Careers, which helps underemployed college graduates gain digital skills and experience. The MarTech Conference donated $100 on behalf of each entry to The Stackies.

You can download a free PDF of all 29 martech stacks here.

What is an epistemicide? Decolonization of knowledge

A simple example, to start with! Each time when in your bibliography or scientific work you cite 90% of the time authors from the north/west despite the fact that similar works are conducted in the south/east, you are committing an epistemicid! You are making other productions invisible and marginal by giving an exclusive legitimacy to only some circles of knowledge production.

Another example, is the Islamic tradition of the « halaqa » in producing knowledge and as a research and academic methodology revolving around debate and discussion. A form or method that existed in the Islamic era in spain, and that no longer exists today in the academic world.

A definition according to Quora: « Its a systematic destruction of any indigenous knowledge base. Any knowledge which doesn’t converge with the perpetrator’s knowledge system. It doesn’t believe in fusion or exchange of knowledge but complete disregard of the other’s knowledge. »

Systems of domination need cultural hegemony to maintain themselves! This is why the obsession with controlling the world of ideas and opinions exists whether in dictatorship or democracy (Aka: disguised dictatorship). It was the role of the priest, today it is the role of the « mercenary intellectual » and actors of the cultural industry! #MentalSlavery

AI-Human Interactions: Bridging the Gap Between Policy Makers, Academia and Business

Numerous of today’s pressing business, societal and public policy challenges are linked to the development of new technologies and their impact on us as consumers, citizens and humans. In particular, the tensions between the benefits and drawbacks of artificial intelligence (AI) create both the need for new research questions and public governance solutions. In this panel discussion we bring together academics, public policy and business representatives that will address burning questions in the area of AI-human interaction from different perspectives. The aim of the panel is to raise the issues that warrant more research attention and encourage the development of research collaborations that would promote a holistic approach to addressing the AI-human interaction challenges from all three perspectives. Responsible AI, algorithmic bias, AI governance, AI impact on consumers and citizens, AI business implementation challenges are just some of the topics we will address.
