Cyborg Mann in First Monday

Cyborg logs

Postmodernist mimicry? Or sophisticated commentary on attribution-free online communities (such as blogs - a cyborg blog is a glog) functioning as cyborgian collaborative communications systems?

Detailed description of some specific implementations of attribution-free computing

This figure

shows a system for producing attribution-free informatic content by way of a collective stream-of-deconsciousness capture. Users 1 and 2 interact with multiple input devices ID1 and ID2. Input devices may consist of computer mice, keyboards, pixels of one or more video cameras, wearable computer devices, or other sensors with which users can interact. An Attribution Obfuscator combines the inputs from the input devices, to give rise to a combined signal from multiple users. The combined signal is passed into an Event Splitter. The splitter duplicates the incoming event, so that it can drive two output devices. In this way, a closed-loop feedback path forms around the multiple users.
