  2. 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…

  5. 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…

  7. Everyday Life and Learning with Jean Lave

    (Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Social anthropologist Jean Lave argues that all theoretical problematics across the social sciences include assumptions about learning, whether explicitly or not. She says that learning is integral to conceptions of knowledge, inquiry, revolution, and changing practice, to name a few. Accordingly, social scientists have substantive stakes in the issue — historical, cultural, spatial, political, and social.

  9. Wendy Brown. In the account of Neoliberalism. 2016

    http://www.egs.edu Wendy Brown, Professor of Philosophy at The European Graduate School / EGS. Saas-Fee Switzerland. August 13 2016.

    Wendy Brown is Professor of Political Science at the University of California Berkeley. Her research interests include the history of political and social theory, Continental philosophy, and critical theory, together with the examination of contemporary capitalism. In her research into the problems that plague contemporary capitalism and neoliberalism, she employs theoretical works of Michel Foucault, Max Weber, Sigmund Freud, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx, and Frankfurt school.

    In 1983, Wendy Brown received her doctoral degree from Princetown University. She subsequently taught at the University of California, Santa Cruz and also at Williams College. Since 1999, she has been teaching at the University of California, Berkeley.

    Edgework: Critical Essays on Knowledge and Politics (2005) consists of seven articles which were all written for some particular occasion. Brown emphasises this trait of her book and claims that “such occasions mimic, in certain ways, the experience of the political realm: one is challenged to think here, now, about a problem that is set and framed by someone else, and to do so before a particular audience or in dialogue…

  10. Episode 2: Software Collection Development

    This is the second episode in a series of six webinars on Software Preservation. The Software Preservation Webinar Series provides a survey of software preservation contexts. Each episode explores a different software preservation context by providing an overview, discussion with guest speakers (specialists in digital preservation, software studies, scholarly communication, open source software and more) and open discussion with attendees. The webinar series is jointly hosted by the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) and Software Preservation Network (SPN).

    Episode 2 reviews existing software collections and their users. In order to better capture current efforts in collecting software, we will identify different collection profiles and the set of features that characterize each of them. Through round-table discussion, guests explore how collection development policies and strategies for existing collections impacts community goals of sharing and reuse. Research & Facilitation Lead for Episode 2 is Anne-Marie Trepanier. Special Guests include: Patricia Falcao (Tate), Paula Jabloner (Computer History Museum) and Tim Walsh (Canadian Centre for Architecture).
