My new book #TheGoodDrone is forthcoming @MITPress. We’re inviting anyone to comment before it goes to press (thx @PubPub). Let’s democratize the review process on #movements #humanrights #technology! thegooddrone.pubpub.org // Here’s the TL;DR for the book, in a thread [1/7]
Chapter 1: Beyond Social Media // I wrote #TheGoodDrone out of fascination & frustration. Fascination with a range of new technologies like drones & satellites, & frustration with how much of their potential was overlooked by folks studying politics [2/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/jwlw5r98
Chapter 2: Democratizing Surveillance // Social media's not the only technology that matters for politics! Drones, satellites, kites, and balloons democratize data gathering and even surveillance [3/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/6ouhcrii
Chapter 3: Hacking Space // Activists, researchers, and non-profit types all over the world are using drones to disrupt the status quo. This work is new and disruptive. Here’s what they’re doing [4/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/6gi4os4m
Chapter 4: The Camera’s Politics // Everyone's always talking about photography and the image. I, however, am in love with the camera. Where'd it come from? Where is it going? What's it mean for politics? Here’s my answer [5/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/gm2aq0ma
Chapter 5 - Resisting Drones | Resistance Drones // New technologies themselves become the focus of political attention. How do people resist drones and how are drones used for resistance? Shotguns and more in this chapter [6/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/ubkg3hca
Chapter 6 - Some New Ideas About Protest Tech // Drones and satellites aren't the only technology that matters for politics. Advocacy efforts have long used tech to gather data, spread the word, & to challenge authorities. Think Les Mis barricades [7/7] thegooddrone.pubpub.org/pub/lnw2oqox
