Yes, it's always struck me as odd that RA proponents and advocates still want legitimacy from the institutions they are trying to evade or unsettle. These are just the sorts of readings I have been looking for - thanks

Also, it would be interesting to get some insight into the Momentum campaign in the recent UK election. I had a student working with a small Labor Party electorate membership group this semester, trying to help them understand how they might use social media to increase youth participation in their branch of the party. From what I can tell, it was like pushing shit uphill trying to get 'older' party members to understand how the communicative political landscape has changed.

The Critique of Design Thinking is a bit naive, but there is a lot in here which deserves support. Quite a few things similar to our Memefest workshop approaches. The idea that good design is potentially solving problems created by bad design is one of them. Still what's missing is an emphasis on decolonization:

This is really worrying if we don't find an alternative. Its interesting because the growing distrust to media was mostly visible in advertising first. Now media as such will become distrusted but with potentially severe consequences.

Organizing for protest on Facebook will make you vulnerable as your activities are monitored and data fwd to police and other control agencies:

A necessary read on how machines, software and AI are changing the culture of photography and image

Invisible Images (Your Pictures Are Looking at You)
By Trevor Paglen

http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/invisible-images-your-pictures-are-looking-at-you/

So what is the future of photography and communication design? And how should we change what we teach students in both areas to remain both fields as a relevant body of knowledge- practiced by humans?

This is super interesting and important to read. Trumps communication culture is based on "black FB posts"- and labor exploitation via design crowd sourcing platforms in Asia.
