Replied to Episode 109: Surveillance and social conformity (tidepodcast.org)

This week, Doug and Dai discuss conformity, social media, Personal Learning Networks, Edward Snowden, surveillance, Big Tech, digital assistants, teaching History, and more!

You speak about the intelligence of buildings in this episode. You might be interested in Ian Guest’s interview of non-humans. I wonder how it might translate to ‘interview’ spaces?
Replied to Episode 95: New Year, same old TIDE by Dai Barnes & Doug Belshaw (tidepodcast.org)
Interesting listening as always. Just a couple of quick points. In regards to the distraction of technology, my mother used to bring knitting (is that technology?) when she would watch me play cricket. I remember once I had lasted only a few balls, going out for a duck. As I walked off, she congratulated me and told me that I had played well. I knew that she neither had a clue what was going on or how I had played. That was long before the smartphone.

Another wondering was associated with the discussion of different identities online. Do you think that the #IndieWeb and the correlating principles counter that, with focus on POSSE and collective identity?
