When we update a status, send a group message, or add a filter what are the processes that occur beneath the interface? Where is the cloud and who controls it? What is the environmental impact of our networked society? Who really owns our data? What is the impact of the individual parts that make up the whole? Have we designed a world of...

What is real, and how are you sure it is so? How can you determine which experiences are "real" if they are digital, virtual or influenced by the chemistry and architecture of your brain?
