12:29pm via digitalculture-ed.net
I was attracted to the idea of a lifestream as an adaptation of the 17th century practice of ‘commonplacing’  but I had no idea how a digital version of this would work in practice.  Before I started the MSc, my digital presence was very limited.  Since starting the MSc, I started to use Delicious as [...]

Before summarizing my lifestream experience I want to reflect on two insights I had while reviewing my own lifestream.
Lifestreaming and Giorgi's phenomenology
As a qualitative analyst, I was struck as I was reviewing and in a sense analyzing my own lifestream the similarities between the lifestream process and Amadeo Giorgi's approach to analysis.  I am not [...]

“Ir is important to note that in this third step Giorgi begins to use
one of the most important concepts of Husserl’s phenomenology, the
imaginative variation. “The intent of the method is to arrive at the
general category by going through the concrete expressions and not
by abstraction or formalization, which are selective according to the
criteria accepted” (Giorgi, 1985, p. 17). By using the imaginative
variation, the researcher begins to both follow the concrete experience
of the co-researcher and reflect about the different possibilities of the
meaning of herlhis experiences. He tries to reach the essential and
unchangeable meaning of the co-researcher’ s experience at the same
time that she/he discards those meanings that are not essential for the
co-researcher in her/his concrete experience and situation. p. 5f3” - Alberto De Castro, Introduction to Giorgi’s Existential Phenomenological Researc...

“It could be sa.idthat the meaning units do not really exist in the
text or protocol as such, with which Giorgi would agree. The
discrimination of each meaning unit depends on the relationship
between the researcher and the protocol, which, in turn, means that
the perspective of the researcher has to do with the division of the
meaning units. However, we should also clarify that the researcher is
not going to give an explanation to these meaning units at this point;
she/he is only going to divide the description into smaller and more
manageable units or blocks with which she/he can do a more detailed
analysis. It is very important to note that while the researcher is dividing
the protocol j.nto meaning units, she/he always has to bear in mind
the sense of the whole of the co-researcher’s description in order not
to impose a rneaning that is not expressed by the co-researcher. pp. 51-52” - Alberto De Cast...

“Once the researcher has read the pratocol and has a sense of the
whole, she/he has to divide the pratocol or description into what
Giorgi calls Meaning Units. The task in this step is to discriminate the
different units or blocks that express a self-contained meaning
(polkinghorne, 1989, p. 53). It is apprapriate to bear in mind that we
have to look at a.nd understand these units or blocks in terms of the
whole meaning, as Sokolowski emphasizes. Giorgi comments that the
units are divided by looking at the different key terms, aspects, attitudes
or values that the co-researcher expresses in the description. In this
way, the researcher has to be aware of the changes in topics and
meanings in the description. When the whole text or description is
divided into meaning units, the researcher can analyze each of them
easily because shelhe has now manageable units.” - Alberto De Castro, Introduction to Giorgi’s...

“I would like to darify the context in which Giorgi is based. He situates himself within the perspective of the French Existential Phenomenological philosopher
Merleau Ponty, who thinks that phenomenology is best understood
in the light of the phenomenological method, which he says has four
principal characteristics: it is descriptive, it uses the reduction, it
searches for essences, and it is focused on the intentionality. Giorgi
takes these characteristics as the basis of his work and method (Giorgi.
1985, pp. 42 - 43).” - Alberto De Castro, Introduction to Giorgi’s Existential Phenomenological Research Method, Psicología desde el Caribe. Universidad del Norte. No. 11: 45-56, 2003

“Sokolowski (2000, pp. 23 - 24) comments that a whole can be called
a concretum, which is something that exists as a specific individual,
which, in tum, can also be experienced and appraached in a concrete
way. He also says that there are parts that he calls moments, which
cannot exist and present themselves apart from the whole to which
they belong, even though he says that we could think about these
parts as independent fram their contexto However, we should keep in
mind that when we think in this way, these parts are not concrete
things, but only abstract objects. These parts that are being thought of
abstracdy can be called abstractum.” -  Alberto De Castro, Introduction to Giorgi’s Existential Phenomenological Research Method, Psicología desde el Caribe. Universidad del Norte. No. 11: 45-56, 2003

from the protocal te explication and interpretation. Finally, we engage
in the process of the communication of findings.” -  Alberto De Castro, Introduction to Giorgi’s Existential Phenomenological Research Method, Psicología desde el Caribe. Universidad del Norte. No. 11: 45-56, 2003

Gies states:
The rhetoric of digital disembodiment is manifestly at odds with the increased use of surveillance technologies which are rendering the body more traceable than ever before. p.316 citing Aas, 2006
Since 9/11 national border security has been computerized so that passports have a digital signature. In the States, visitors have their fingerprints taken and photography [...]

I can’t say I found Haraway an easy read – partly because I needed to understand first the context in which she is writing.  She is a biologist and a socialist feminist and the Cyborg Manifesto is a critique and an alternative to the brand of radical feminism that was dominant at the time of [...]
