Tech for Good & Evil: I Need Your Help to Collect Mapping Resources

Yosem Companys
Hi All,

Could you help me collect any and all mapping resources that may be available on the use of technology for good and evil? 

I'm looking bibliographies, syllabi, media resources, and any other materials you may be aware of, e.g., seminal and other readings, disciplinary or multidisciplinary readings, country-specific or cross-cultural readings.

Below is a list of the topics that I have identified thus far. If I'm missing any others or you believe there's a better way of organizing them, please let me know.

  • Accountability, Corruption, Openness, and Transparency¬†(e.g., Open Data, Freedom of Information - FOI)
  • Activism, Protests, and Movements (e.g., Occupy, Anonymous, Hacktivism)
