The Internet: Saviour or Foe? | danah boyd

Fica aqui uma entrevista de danah boyd | The Internet: Saviour or Foe? – 52 Insights e uma provocação da autora: “My biggest fearful outcome is that we will use technology to automate and magnify inequality. That’s the thing I am most worried about because there are so many powerful interests who, individual and corporate, really want to use it to create distance as opposed to bring people together. That’s where a lot of my peers are in for another shock because most of us also imagined a world in which technology was separate from broader geopolitics. The reality is that technology is now a part of every sector and every political agenda. It’s not just about who has a media presence, it’s about who can manipulate it, who can use it for their own political ends.”
