Qwerty e il modo con cui viene denominata la tastiera europea. Si tratta delle prime sei lettere della riga piu in alto della tastiera e quest’ordine e stato introdotto perche quando si cominciarono ad usare le macchine da scrivere con le tastiere rispettose dell’ordine alfabetico la gente andava troppo veloce e i tasti si aggrovigliavano. Allora, furono mescolate le lettere in modo da rallentare la scrittura, ma successivamente, nonostante questo problema sia stato completamente superato, la tastiera e sempre rimasta cosi. Noi crediamo che questa sia una buona metafora dell’intreccio tra cultura e strumenti tecnologici. Infatti, le tecnologie basate sul computer costituiscono degli artefatti culturali presenti con diversi gradi di profondita nelle attivita quotidiane di studio e di lavoro degli individui, dei gruppi sociali e delle istituzioni. Diversi sono i modelli che guidano il loro uso e gli ambienti on line che mediano l’interazione tra le persone. In ogni caso l’intreccio tra cultura e artefatti tecnologici risulta sempre piu complesso e capace di determinare nuovi modelli d’interazione cognitivi, psicologici e sociali. La rivista costituisce un organo dell’Associazione CKBG che vanta gia una notevole attivita nel territorio nazionale oltre che una stretta collaborazione con il gruppo di ricerca diretto da Marlene Scardamalia e Carl Bereiter (Universita di Toronto). Qwerty nasce dalla consapevolezza della necessita di sviluppare la ricerca e la riflessione in questo settore e si rivolge a quanti si interessano dell’uso di tali tecnologie in contesti scolastici, formativi, sociali e di ricerca universitaria. Si propone come un forum di discussione circa l’uso delle tecnologie in contesti educativi e di formazione, considerando gli aspetti culturali, sociali, pedagogici, psicologici, economici, professionali.

In this case, engaging in this opposing frames of mind actually turned out to be very beneficial in both worlds. We wanted to play a new song in Japan that was different from what we have done in the past that had a lot of energy live. We had a very specific idea of the kind of song we wanted to play but we didn't have that type of song yet. Being able to rehearse and record at the same time enabled us to create the song Qwerty, which is the song that we ended up playing. After trying to mold a song we had already written into the right one for the show (which didn't work) we decided to write a brand new song 3 days before leaving. An hour before one of the last rehearsals we stopped working on a song named Grecian and decided to start a new song based on an idea that Phoenix had brought in. The song Qwerty came together in an hour and then it was rearranged over the next three days in the rehearsal room and the studio. The lyrics were actually finished on the flight to Japan.

Overall, I think Qwerty got a great response live. I thought it was incredible that the fans actually recorded the song on thier cell phones and then posted it online. Despite the audio being barely audible it was really cool to see all of the file trading and posts of the song. Since the live performances went well we decided to track it with our producer Rick, who had some great suggestions to make the song even better. Qwerty will always remind me of that quick trip to Japan, and you can look out for it perhaps as an Underground exclusive in LPU6...

For two weeks prior to leaving we were running back and forth from the recording studio and rehearsal spot, creating new songs and relearning the older songs. At some points it got really hectic. After playing Qwerty on the last day of rehearsals, we knew that it was going to be a great live song. It's a little nerve-wracking to write a song and then play it in front of thousands of fans a few days latter, but it was also very exciting to be able to play a song that was still in the works and see how the fans reacted to it before finishing it.
