Investigating the impact of Data & Society

Well, this looks very interesting:

Data & Society is currently looking to assemble its inaugural class of fellows. The fellowship program is intended to bring together an eclectic network of researchers, entrepreneurs, activists, policy creators, journalists, geeks, and public intellectuals who are interested in engaging one another on the key issues introduced by the increasing availability of data in society. We are looking for a diverse group of people who can see both the opportunities and challenges presented by access to data and who have a vision for a project that can inform the public or shape the future of society.

It becomes even more interesting when you know that danah boyd is behind it...

There's an awful lot of hand-waving and received "wisdom" around issues where tech and culture meets. Anything that contributes to more rigorous research has to be good news.
