On Thursday we move on to Ethics, Hacking and Mobile Cyborgs. Mace Ojala will organize two sessions on ‘Hacking Cultures’ and a ‘Hackers, Maintainers, Programmers and Geek’ Social, while Ester Fritsch will share the discourse on ethical reflections among IoT developers in ‘The social Life of Dowse: Ethics and Invisibility in IoT’. In the presentation ‘Mobile Cyborgs: subverting the myth of the ‘other’ en route to Europe through digital technologies’ Vasiliki Makrygianni will explore the effects of the interaction between the human and the non-human in the context of contemporary migration.
Irina Papazu will dive into Democracy in the Making and present the tensions in ‘Democratic Situations’ before returning to another Ethical Session based on an ethnographic study of how employees in the Danish Tax and Customs Administration grapple with implementing ‘agile methods’ (scrum and DevOps) in the ministry’s IT projects.
