• I finished off Week 3 of the Digital Capitalism online course.
    • This week the topic was Digital colonialism.
    • With mostly a focus on Data colonialism.
    • In that focus on data I feel perhaps it omits some other colonial practices – such as in mining, manufacture and disposal related to ICT.
    • Still – good stuff.
  • Started listening to the masterclass for week 4, on the digital trade agenda.
    • The point about why corporations love trade deals is really enlightening – easy way for them to bypass democratic discussion; lobby to get their way; once a trade deal is made, it’s very hard to change.
  • Learning about ecology on Kinnu, I realise that it’s a great source of ideas for thinking in systems.
