This blog is a continuation of discussion beginning in each of the DATA-PSST! seminars. Funded by the UK's Economic & Social Research Council, they assess the premise that, after the Edward Snowden revelations of 2013, we now live in a materially and qualitatively different techno-cultural period. This blog allows delegates to express their positions, clarify arguments and carry on debates. Interested citizens and groups are also more than welcome to comment.
