Tracing The Origins Of Code. A talk by Dr. Melanie Feakins
Date: 4:30pm PST November 12, 2018 Location: Miller 105
How and why Russian coders were made invisible?
Software designed, programmed, and tested in Russia is often disconnected from Russia when it reaches the end-clients or end-users elsewhere. Misrecognition of the source and site of code production creates a curious set of questions, mostly about the necessity of obscuring and the invisibility of the offshore. This talk examines case studies from two Russian firms and their “use’ of invisibility.
