The results of the CBOS survey indicate a commitment of over 40 percent of Poles are involved in various types of activity in civic organisations – we are becoming more active every year. How does datafication and digitisation match up? Does data support our activity? Or are they working against us?
Bartosz Ślosarski (ISS UW) talks about data activism, datafication and the approach to data changing under the influence of technology, answering Dr. Justyna Pokojska’s questions about:
- a practical definition of data activism – how can something that is passive take an active stance?
- the consequences of the social shift in the importance of data in the world we live in,
- the cultural imperative of data and whether we actually «need to get into data»,
- will the motto «pics or didn’t happen» stay with us for longer or give way to reflection on essence?
- entities responsible for the production of data,
- the existence of «raw data» these days,
- the fetish of danetisation and the areas that have resisted it,
- „data is changing how we see the environment” – what does this mean and what are the implications?
- the role of danetisation in activism and social movements.
