I’m a non-coder who studies technology from a social science perspective.
I’m interested in how technologies and people influence each other. I’m especially interested in things like privacy, data ethics, technology resistance/non-use and how communication technologies shape people’s everyday lives.
As part of this, I’m working with @Teq on an ethnographic project exploring the scuttleverse. We want this work to benefit the SSB community and welcome any ideas or feedback you might have!
Essentially, our aims are to understand SSB and the sociotechnical dynamics that are shaping it. In particular, we’re exploring the long-term dynamics of decentralised sociotechnical communities and how people are developing clients like patchwork to function as alternatives to centralised, corporate social media. If you’re interested, you can read more in our Project Outline! and check out our updates via #ssb-research
Research aside, I’m also just excited to hang out here. I’m always for up chats about cooking, living off-grid, intersectional politics, and reminders of my homeland aotearoa #new-zealand
