Informatics monoculture, permaculture and construction of a counterhegemonic sociability
Keywords: Hegemony, Informatics Monoculture, Permaculture
AbstractThis article is dedicated to exploring the sociopolitical implications of the concept of “informatics monoculture”. The standardization of cultural practices based on the dissemination of digital technologies leads to a concept of universality which is implicit in the wide acceptance of the computer as a fundamental tool of human culture. This universality is seen as part of the hegemony of capitalism, with its presumption of a “cult of quantitative efficiency”. The example of permaculture is used here to illustrate a counterhegemonic movement.
