Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Big data is a misnomer. While the field is relatively young, much thought has already been churned on critiquing the term, particularly about not being able to equate the scale of data with diversity. This being the case, in the name of diversity, we should look at big data from the angle of the global south. After all, the majority of the world’s population resides outside of the West. Yet, when we pay attention to the debates about surveillance, privacy and net neutrality and the demand for alternative models and practices to sustain the digital commons, they are primarily driven by western concerns, contexts, and user behaviors from these privileged domains. This undoubtedly provides a thwarted view of the internet.
