A quick announcement about two new pieces from me, both of which relate to my ongoing research on the subject of algorithmic culture.
The first is an interview with Giuseppe Granieri, posted on his Futurists’ Views site over on Medium. The tagline is: “Culture now has two audiences: people and machines.” It’s a free-ranging conversation, apparently readable in six minutes, about algorithms, AI, the culture industry, and the etymology of the word, culture.
About that word: over on Culture Digitally you’ll find a draft essay of mine, examining culture’s shifting definition in relationship to digital technology. The piece is available for open comment and reflection. It’s the first in a series from Ben Peters’ “Digital Keywords” project, of which I’m delighted to be a part. Thanks in advance for your feedback—and of course with all of the provisos that accompany draft material.
