A continuation of the discussion regarding Algorithms, Automatons, and Crypto-Currencies.

These lecture focused on the role of Big Data and Benjamin Bratton and his notion of ‘The Stack’ composed of “social, human and “analog” layers (chthonic energy sources, gestures, affects, user-actants, interfaces, cities and streets, rooms and buildings, organic and inorganic envelopes) and informational, non-human computational and “digital” layers (multiplexed fiber optic cables, datacenters, databases, data standards and protocols, urban-scale networks, embedded systems, universal addressing tables).”
How do we formulate the question of the role of Big Data and the possibility of sovereignty within the world of the Post-Anthropocene?
