Let’s Talk About Databases: Acts of Interpretation in Browsing the Leading Structure of the Information Age

Critical Writing
Record Status: 
Abstract (in English): 

Presentation geared at a wide audience about the saturation of databases and other information structures in our society in relation to one mode of this experience and that is browsing. Browsing is very focused on the daily experience people have with the database. I combine offline examples of browsing and with examples of browsing digital database structures. To highlight the cultural value of browsing databases, I analyze the creative database A dictionary of the Revolution to see how it engages our interpretation habits of databases.
