Contesting Openness, Making Politics

  1. 1. CONTESTING OPENNESS, MAKING POLITICS MEI-CHUN LEE ANTHROPOLOGY, UC DAVIS 04.14.2018 SLIDES CC-BY 4.0 MG LEE THE UPRISING OF CIVIC HACKERS IN POST-AUTHORITARIAN TAIWAN
  2. 2. Instead of saying Audrey Tang being the minister, it is shequn [社群, community] friends who push her into this keng [坑, position] and ask her to lead them [the hackers]…...In this sense, she is actually shuwei minister(s) [數位政委]. Ben Jai “SHUWEI” MINISTER(S) “
  3. 3. Substituting the “o” with “0″ in gov, the new “g0v” not only stands for rethinking the role that the government plays from the bottom up, but also represents the world view of 0 and 1 in the digital natives generation. “ g0v (gov-zero)
  4. 4. OPENNESS THE CORE OF HACKING
  5. 5. OPENNESS AS OPEN SOURCE & OPEN DATA
  6. 6. On the grasslands, no one can give command. People come and go. You might find some familiar faces who stay here longer than others and listen to them telling g0v’s history, but you would never find a representative. When you yell ‘Who is in charge of here? I want to say something,’ you will only see confusing faces, wondering what you are talking about? walkingice “ OPENNESS AS DECENTALIZATION

  10. 10. SHUWEI MINISTER(S) 數位政委 Explaining shuwei as multiple may be attractive, but, in reality, there is only one digital minister. We will follow closely on how this minister uses limited resources to reform the government and how she builds channels for the civil society, communities and other stakeholders. If a policy evokes resonance among shequn [社群community] participants, shequn will organically become the external support. However, there is never one singular voice among the vibrant open government shequn. “
  11. 11. CONSERVATIVE ANARCHIST 持守的安那其
  12. 12. When open government becomes the Mirror of Erised*, we see differently of what we desire of an ideal government. Audrey Tang is also a Mirror of Erised. Some expect her to take bold steps, while some others prefer that she takes a step back as a prelude to advance. Jiang “ * From Harry Porter, the Mirror of Erised shows the deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.
