Another fascinating keynote by James Bridle, this time at Media Evolution 2013 in Malmo. He discusses amongst other things Kitchin and Dodge’s code/space concept, automated warehouses and as ever, contemporary warfare.
Although by far the best section sees Bridle talk about cricket and the array of technological systems currently being used. Interestingly it seems, cricket commentators are having a debate about technological agency that rarely jumps into such a public field. Hawkeye, Hot Spot and the good old Snickometer all get a mention as components of the much-debated Decision Review System (DRS). Bridle sees the cricket pitch as an intensely surveilled and sensored space – somewhat the antithesis of such a antiquated game.
