Digital Sociology: Beyond the Digital to the Sociological

"Where sociologists differ from many other social researchers in researching digital media is their awareness that digital data, like any other type of data, are socially created and have a social life, a vitality, of their own. They are not the neutral products of automatic calculation, but represent deliberate decisions by those who formulate the computer algorithms that collect and manipulate these data (boyd and Crawford 2012; Cheney-Lippold 2011; Ruppert et al. 2013). The data that these devices and software produce structure our concepts of identity, embodiment, relationships, our choices and preferences and even our access to services or spaces. Without the knowledge of digital technology users, algorithms measure and sort them, deciding what choices they may be offered (Beer 2009, 2013a). Algorithms and other elements of software, therefore, are generative, a productive form of power (Lash 2007)."

Information Aesthetics

"Information Aesthetics is designed and maintained by Andrew Vande Moere, a Senior Lecturer at the Design Lab (previously called the Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition), at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning of the University of Sydney, Australia. His research interests include data visualization and visual design (obviously), from normal screen–based interfaces over 'media architecture' to more explorative, artistic and wearable applications. His teaching comprises interaction design, physical/wearable computing and 3D real–time multimedia."
