Lisa Rein - Hot Networks
“Creating the new tag ‘feminism‘ requires at least 150 reputation. Try something from the existing tags list instead.“
"Why was Sauron preparing for war instead of trying to find the ring?“
"Does academia have a lazy work culture?“
"How to respond to a sexual harrassment claim made against you?“
The paradigm of programmability determines the codes of conduct of Stackoverflow and generates a communication structure in which answers to a conversation are not ordered chronologically, but according to their supposed value. True to the logic of the Computational Universe (N. Katherine Hayles), not only numbers can be sorted along a scale from 0 to 100, from good to bad, but all kinds of other complex elements, such as the contributions in a conversation. The obsessive attempt to classify and automate human communication leads to regular overload, to stackoverflow, as the name of the forum anticipates in unintentional self-awareness.
