043 Joana Moll and making sense of the internet

Description:

We sat down with Joana Moll, co-founder of the Critical Interface Politics Research Group at HANGAR [Barcelona] and co-founder of The Institute for the Advancement of Popular Automatisms.

Her work critically explores the way post-capitalist narratives affect the alphabetization of machines, humans and ecosystems. Her main research topics include Internet materiality, surveillance, social profiling and interfaces.

We talked about making sense of the internet, how the current decision makers make bad decisions because they do not understand the material and what can we do about it?
