Colonia Digital: The Empire Feeds Back!


The internet is dead. As platform plumbers andcompany&Co. move in the desert and install themselves in the ruins of a data centre. In remembrance of the forgotten socialist origins of Big Data, andcompany&Co. have constructed the ops-room that Salvador Allende had built just before Pinochet’s coup in 1973: that “communist machine” that was meant to guide the state and a national economy in real time. Voices still haunt the echo chambers of the disused internet from a time before the net was conquered by an army of trolls and was dominated by social bots: “At last, el pueblo!“
