Today marks my overdue introduction to this blog. My name is Mark Coté and I an the Co-Investigator of our AHRC-funded ‘Our Data Ourselves’ research project. I am also Programme Director of the MA in Digital Culture and Society at King’s College London, where we are also undertaking our research. Along with our Principal Investigator Tobias Blanke, and Research Associates Jennifer Pybus and Giles Greenway, we will be posting updates on our research as well as related reflections. We are always interested in the ideas and research of others and hope this can also function dialogically. So please if you are interested or provoked by what you read, please do let us know. Thanks.
