This is the introduction to the panel I moderated at transmediale 2015, Capture all. It is followed by presentations of Matteo Pasquinelli, Antoinette Rouvroy, and Evgeny Mozorow, followed by a general discussion. Well worth watching the whole thing!
My talk at the "Eindruck der Dunkelheit" conference in Berlin, Jan 25/26.2014.
In the talk, I focussed on different types of power and how they relate to transparency. Put simply, transprancy (visibility + accountability) is great to put a check on "institutional power", but not very helpful to regulate "network power. On the contrary, it helps to increase such power. The discussion, which starts after 30 min, mainly dealt with questions of regulation and what to do to counter "network power".
