Networks Between Control and Autonomy

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Here's my talk at LiWoli- Art Meets Radical Openness..

Abstract: Everyday experiences of networked society oscillate between processes of intensified control (Facebook, data retention, profiling) and new niches of autonomy (Wikileaks, Anonymous, commons-based peer production). Where does this contradictoriness of the networks come from? What can we do to expand the niches of autonomy without facilitating the processes of control?
