In the current landscape of media and communication, our world is undergoing immense and rapid transformations in the breadth, and format of how we interconnect. At the same time, it is difficult for even the most technically adept to fully comprehend the scope of these projects. This talk is a musing on the ideas behind online identity and mass communication in the 21st century. It intends to partially unravel the mystery behind networked social identity, as well as provide the tools for even the technically-disinclined to understand the possibilities for control, surveillance, freedom, and liberated identity within this new topology.
Some included topics:
- Online surveillance, and how deleting your Facebook isn’t enough
- Big Data analytics: why your data is worth money, and the (im)possibility of privacy
- Theories and Paradoxes in a hyper-connected future
- Alternative internets, (or darkness) and what they represent.
