My article “What Do Metrics Want? How Quantification Prescribes Social Interaction on Facebook,” has just been published in the journal Computational Culture. In this text I explore how Facebook metrics prescribe sociality from both a theoretical perspective as well as through my work Facebook Demetricator. Computational Culture: a journal of software studies is “an online open-access peer-reviewed journal of inter-disciplinary enquiry into the nature of the culture of computational objects, practices, processes and structures.” The journal is edited by Matthew Fuller, Andrew Goffey, Olga Goriunova, Graham Harwood, and Adrian Mackenzie.
News about shows, press, etc, and occasional writings about my research and practice.
