Professor Borgman talked with KCBS Radio’s Susan Leigh Taylor this morning to respond to Governor Newsom’s State of the State Address. In his address, Newsom introduced plans to have his team draft a “data dividends” proposal. The idea being that, if tech companies are going to make money off your personal data, you should get a cut. Borgman discusses the cross-cultural differences regarding privacy and how policy decisions could reinforce current power structures and inequalities.
Professor Christine Borgman was interviewed by Dr. Dan Turello at the Library of Congress for the “Insights” blog which discusses Scholarly Work at John W. Kluge Center. Within this interview Dr. Turello and Professor Borgman discuss her experience as a woman in mathematics in the 1970s, the definition of data, digital preservation, and more. Professor Borgman is a current member of the Library of Congress Scholars Council which advises on matters related to scholarship at the Library, with special attention to the Kluge Center and the Kluge Prize.
