show #183: donna davis on our digital selves

show #183

professor donna z. davis is program director at the school of journalism and communication at the university of oregon. she is one of the researchers depicted in the drax files special “our digital selves“.

as she was not available for the post-release discussion around the film last week i decided to play the unedited interview from september last year. we had met in san francisco to visit high fidelity and linden lab and this conversation formed part of the basis of the film.


and some more context and material to dissect:

  • of course the full feature film again [in case you missed it!]
  • lisa peyton’s post:
