Title: Being a Data Citizen


In this talk, I explore the new forms to identity which are coming into being as we are entering more and more into a world of big data analytics. Drawing in part on Dominique Boullier's concept of 'vibrations', I argue that we are not only witnessing the creation of new kinds of social fact, but also new understandings of what it means to be human.  I connect this latter to the wider move of flattening the distinction between humans and non-humans.
