Video of my one-hour lecture Understanding Digital Labor: An Emerging Sphere of Social Conflict, Total Mobilization Conference, Collège d’études mondiales – FMSH, Paris, 15 Oct. 2015.
What is the web doing? What is the web? What does the web want? The web is mobilizing human beings in impressive and unprecedented ways. In order to understand this phenomenon, we should wonder what kind of entity the web is, how it relates to and bears upon human society and culture. The conference aims at doing so by involving scholars who, in their researches, are addressing these issues from different perspectives. e.g. philosophy, cognitive sciences, anthropology, social sciences.
