Keller, Michael; Neufeld, Josh (2014): Terms of Service. Understanding our role in the world of Big Data, hrsg. von Rhyne Piggott und Lam Thuy Vo,
Short Description

This critical big data literacy tool provides a very interesting and low - threshold approach to teaching about big data: through a graphic novel. The story focusses on many individual real cases of controversial big data usage. The novel’s characters explain these examples in an easily - accessible manner and often provide a critical perspective on these cases. Moreover, experts from the field, for example researcher danah boyd appear in the comic and are interviewed. The graphic novel aims at giving “a good foundation to start asking your own questions”. Thus, this tool addresses a general public without any prior knowledge and provides a great introduction to the topic of big data as well as fostering understanding and critical reflection of data practices. However, constructive advice could be made a little clearer.

Der Journalist Michael Keller und der Künstler Josh Neufeld präsentieren die Ergebnisse ihrer jahrelangen Recherchen über die Folgen der Datensammelwut von Facebook & Co. in einer Graphic Novel. Sie erklären die Zusammenhänge über Dialoge und Schaubilder und geben einen verständlichen Einstieg in das Thema. Das Buch ist auch auf Deutsch erschienen: Keller, Michael (2017): Big Data. Das Ende der Privatheit? Mit einem Anhang: Uber-Taxis ... oder das System, das dich taxiert, Berlin: Verlagshaus Jacoby & Stuart.
