I'm working on augmented reality in philosophy and new perceptions of reality and information in our times. I've just started writing and I guess it'll be finished spring 2014. But sadly I'm living in Turkey and have to write in Turkish. I'm going to translate but it's hard to finish translation before summer 2014. I'll be happy to talk with you.
Oooh. That sounds *fascinating*. I'd love to follow along with google translate. Definitly take a look at Voss' work as well. I'm an acacdemic here in Sydney, so I'm happy to chat about ideas. @denubisX on twitter
So I have to ask... Given that this paper is a survey of common usage of the concept of data, are you taking a pragmatist approach to the reality of what data is? To me, it seems that the colloquial usages of the concept of "data" is only relevant once the metaphysical concept of "data" is fully established. Honestly, my philosophy studies haven't taken me into this route yet, so I am not certain that this concept is ill defined at this time.
@skoobahdiver Depends on what hat I'm wearing. This is mainly a question of "how do we deal with people saying the word 'data' " Basically, one of the major IT problems is that we think we know what the word data means when it comes out of our clients/requirementGenerator's mouths. This understanding is a *real* problem, since it often doesn't tend to match up. Also, as a pragmatist, there's no platonic form of data. There is only how we define it in the nested Baudrilliardian simulacra we live in.
