Value and Values

I can’t wait for this end of conference event for Bev Skeggs and Simon Yuill’s Facebook project:

“Value and Values”
Saturday December 3rd 2016
9.30-18.30, followed by a wine reception at 18.30
Goldsmiths, University of London 

This event is the final symposium for the ESRC Professorial Fellowship project “Value and Values” (ES/K010786/1) conducted between 2013-2016 by Bev Skeggs and Simon Yuill.

Facebook represents a new form of capitalist capture, one based on monopolization and rent that shapes our current connectivity as it monetises us and opens us up to forms of financialization, including increased indebtedness. This form of capitalist capture moves us into a new regime of accumulation, of profit without production, in which the command of surplus value is via the control of surplus information.
