Fantastic summary here Cathy!
Great to see you referencing specific lifestream items, and reflecting so interestingly on your EDC explorations in week 2.
The whole earth catalogue is a great link for our discussions of ‘cybercultures’: technology framed directly as an alternative space. You rightly identify the critical angle here around utopian thinking, and the tendencies that have masked much of Silicon Valley’s alignment with questionable social practices.
Can we make a link here with calls for ‘learning cultures’ that call for personalised technology, or social networks that challenge the hierarchy of the institution?
‘Fake news’ is a nice link here, and highly relevant to our third block on algorithmic cultures. Look forward to surfacing more of this discussion then. It is certainly topical!
