What are the behavioural effects of technological networks? What happens if we stop thinking about technology as shiny machines and start looking at other, subtler tools? Can we design technology to have better effects upon humans? These and other questions are what this blog project, A Hundred Cyborgs, are all about. Here are the ten posts from 31 to 40:
There's a lot of line blurring pieces in here, particularly #36 Suits, #37 President of the United States, #38 Halloween, and #39 Spaceships. If you only read one of these, #36 Suits is perhaps the most unusual application of the term 'cyborg' you're likely to encounter. The remaining posts are more straightforward concepts of cyborg existence, and I am particularly fond of #35 Techno, which makes a positive case for our relationship with technology.
I am always interested in discussion, so feel free to raise comments either here (ideal for longer debates) or on Twitter (perfect for quick questions). And if you’ve enjoyed any of these pieces, please buy a copy of The Virtuous Cyborg and support my research into cybervirtue!
New Cyborgs coming next week!
