— Data Publics (@datapublics) April 2, 2017
I presented at the Data Publics conference last weekend, at Lancaster University. Got lots of helpful feedback to some early thoughts on publics (thinking with some of my old favourites, Despret, Haraway, Marres, Stengers, etc.).
with data publics?
As Despret asks of animals and their work, my provocation was to ask not just whether “data publics” offer us something (whether they are useful), but whether we work well with them, whether they ‘make more interesting’ and give us the ‘chance’ to think differently.

My three propositions were:
Proposition #1: “We need room”
Proposition #2: “Versions not visions”
Proposition #3: “Keep Compost”
