How Peep Culture Hacked Your Reputation & Brain

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In his book 'The Peep Diaries' & doc 'Peep Culture,' Hal Niedzviecki notes our willingness to bare everything for entertainment, profit & reputation. Even if we don't aspire to fame, with every status update, video upload & burrito-Instagram, we expect to be witnessed. We marvel at the higher speeds & access to information; congratulate ourselves about using the same digital platforms as those powering recent revolutions, but we've drifted into consumption, broadcasting & 'curation' of increasingly meaningless content. We will debate Hal's idea - a peep culture centered on chasing maximum rewards for exposing private lives - with a demographic twist: Meghan Warby (aged 31) is a cautious digital native unsure about transparency; Boyd Neil (aged 63) is comfortable with digital ‘nakedness’ as a necessity of digital democracy; & Niedzviecki (aged 41) who grew up with one of the first PCs but has become increasingly skeptical of the way we're turning domestic life into public product.
