Everyday life, i.e. proprietary ecologies

What makes proprietary ecologies important? ✦ Proprietary ecologies - the increasingly privatized environments our data flow and lives exist within ! ✦ Accumulation by dispossession - enclosure of the commons to consolidate class power ! ✦ Cyborg - being psychologically and socially configured within information systems

The Deep Web & Tor ✦ Deep Web - the web that cannot be indexed by search engines like Google, Yahoo, or DuckDuckGo ! ✦ Tor - layers of encryption that are used to anonymize communication

Representing Representation ✦ 2-3 minutes: present you peer’s research based on her or his representation post ✦ 1 minute rebuttal: add anything else you want to ! When you are all complete, discuss: ✦ What surprised (or not) you about what you heard? ✦ What trends do you see developing across your hashtag theme? What is specific to you? ✦ What trends do you think could be explored further in your peers’ hashtag analysis in the future? And in your own future analysis?

So! What is public? ! And what is private? ! The debate rages on!
