    Merrin Macleod

    How can we minimise our software’s contribution to climate change? How do we make software that can withstand climate change-related disasters? How do we deal with the knowledge that we’re careening towards catastrophe?

  2. Heart of Clojure 2019 - Chris Adams - What you can do when software is heating the world

    You might have heard stories about how bitcoin, or the internet itself, is responsible for an ever-growing share of global carbon emissions.

    But did you know that just by switching AWS regions in the US, you can wipe out a huge chunk of the carbon footprint from running your tech infrastructure? Most people don’t, and we need stuff like this to be common knowledge in our industry.

    In this talk, you’ll learn about the environmental impact of the digital products and services we build, how to measure it, and how to use skills you already have to make meaningful, measurable improvements to it.

    About Chris: Chris Adams is an environmentally focussed tech generalist, spending the last ten years working in tech startups, large companies and government, as a user researcher, product manager, developer, sysadmin and UX-er. Based in Berlin, he currently builds open source tools, and publishes open datasets with the Green Web Foundation, to help others understand and reduce the environmental impact of digital products they build.

  3. Toni Morrison Nobel Lecture (1993)

    http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/literature/laureates/1993/morrison-lecture.html

    "The systematic looting of language can be recognized by the tendency of its users to forgo its nuanced, complex, mid-wifery properties for menace and subjugation. Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge. Whether it is obscuring state language or the faux-language of mindless media; whether it is the proud but calcified language of the academy or the commodity driven language of science; whether it is the malign language of law-without-ethics, or language designed for the estrangement of minorities, hiding its racist plunder in its literary cheek - it must be rejected, altered and exposed. It is the language that drinks blood, laps vulnerabilities, tucks its fascist boots under crinolines of respectability and patriotism as it moves relentlessly toward the bottom line and the bottomed-out mind. Sexist language, racist language, theistic language - all are typical of the policing languages of mastery, and cannot, do not permit new knowledge or encourage the mutual exchange of ideas."

  7. Databite No. 119: Mary L. Gray

    This talk by anthropologist Mary L. Gray is based on her latest book, "Ghost Work: How to Stop Silicon Valley from Building a New Global Underclass," a collaboration with computer scientist Siddharth Suri. Ghost Work is a necessary and revelatory exposé of the invisible human workforce that powers the web—and that foreshadows the true future of work.

    Hidden beneath the surface of the web, lost in our wrong-headed debates about AI, a new menace is looming. This book unveils how services delivered by companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Uber can only function smoothly thanks to the judgment and experience of a vast, invisible human labor force. These people doing “ghost work” make the internet seem smart. They perform high-tech piecework: flagging X-rated content, proofreading, designing engine parts, and much more. An estimated 8 percent of Americans have worked at least once in this “ghost economy,” and that number is growing. They usually earn less than legal minimums for traditional work, they have no health benefits, and they can be fired at any time for any reason, or none.

    There are no labor laws to govern this kind of work, and these latter-day assembly lines draw in—and all too often overwork and underpay—a surprisingly diverse range of workers: harried y…

  10. Documenting Aftermath: An Author-Meets-Critics Session

    Abstract: In this author meets critics session, Drs. Daniel Greene (iSchool), Ricky Punzalan (iSchool), David Tomblin (STS), and Marccus Hendricks (UMD Urban Planning), will discuss Documenting Aftermath: Information Infrastructure in the Wake of Disasters with the author Megan Finn. Documenting Aftermath is an examination of how changing public information infrastructures shaped people’s experience of earthquakes in Northern California in 1868, 1906, and 1989. Finn argues that information orders—complex constellations of institutions, technologies, and practices—influence how we act in, experience, and document events. Examining multiple information orders in different historical moments allows for comparative examination of how people used and rebuilt different public information infrastructures following earthquakes.

    Speaker: Megan Finn is an Assistant Professor at University of Washington’s Information School. Her work examines relations amongst institutions, infrastructures, and practices in the production, circulation, and use of information. She examines these themes in a book, called Documenting Aftermath: Information Infrastructures in the Wake of Disasters, with MIT Press coming out in Fall 2018. She completed her PhD in 2012 at UC Berkeley’s School of Information, and spent two yea…
