Data sweat

Posted on | August 30, 2013 | 1 Comment

A link to more work in progress. This paper is my first effort to bring cultural studies in to the world of high tech. It starts with some ground clearing etymology before introducing three new concepts: data agents, data sweat, and data exhaust. All three are efforts to expand the critical and ethical vocabulary for the emerging data economy.

I am especially keen to hear feedback on the idea of ‘data sweat’ from those of you working on corporeality and bodies… and also whether ‘data agents’ fits the claim for a new kind of ‘below the line’ work. This material is a gender- media- cultural studies bonanza!

    I like that conversations and other excretions are your data here 😉
