In the following episode, Geert Lovink talks about the repercussions of the proliferation of Zoom in our everyday routine during Covid-19, the underestimated politics of social media, as well as the strategies and practices that could move us beyond our subjugation by platforms. For two decades, media theorist Geert Lovink has been writing and researching on critical internet culture. In his 2019 book “Sad by Design,” he studies the emotional effect of the domination of digital platforms on society and lays the foundation for a new field of internet studies.
