How can platform capitalism’s extractivist model of networks be confronted and decolonized? Scholar of environmental media Mél Hogan and critical internet theorist Ulises A. Mejias analyze the ecological and social costs of big data infrastructure and connectivity. Challenging the colonial and ecosystemic logic that enables resource and data extractivism, they propose shifts toward post-nodal forms of existence.
