(HICSS Conference Office Department of IT Management, Shidler College of Business, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, 2021-01-04) Harviainen, Tuomas J.; Haasio, Ari; Ruokolainen, Teemu; Hassan, Lobna; Siuda, Piotr; Hamari, Juho; Tampere University; Seinäjoki University of Applied Science; Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz
In recent years, there have increasingly been conflicting calls for more government surveillance online and, paradoxically, increased protection of the privacy and anonymity of individuals. Many corporations and groups globally have come under fire for sharing data with law enforcement agencies as well as for refusing to cooperate with said agencies, in order to protect their customers. In this study, we focus on Dark Web drug trading sites as an exemplary case of problematic areas of information protection, and ask what practices should be followed when gathering data from the Dark Web. Using lessons from an ongoing research project, we outline best practices for protecting the safety of the people under study on these sites without compromising the quality of research data gathering.
Negative Meanings of the Internet: the Net Regulation from the Perspective of Jeffrey C. Alexander’s Strong Program in Cultural Sociology
(Instytut Filozofii i Socjologii PAN, Wydział Filozofii i Socjologii UW, 2015) Siuda, Piotr; Uniwersytet Kazimierza Wielkiego w Bydgoszczy
Jeffrey C. Alexander, the founder of the strong program of cultural sociology, has described cultural meanings connected with the computer. Using the concepts of this prominent theoretician, this article relates his theories to the Internet. Perceiving the Net through a lens of cultural meanings, one must consider code and narrations. At the code level, the Internet falls within the sacral (sacred) sphere because it is believed to completely change social life. There are two narrations related to the Net, the positive and the negative one. In the case of the negative narration, many various motives may be identified. They are linked with the necessity to control both the very technology and its users. Although regulation of technology is primarily concerned with watching over the operations of large Internet firms, users must also develop appropriate habits in using the Net. The article is aimed at characterizing this regulation through qualitative analysis of publications by selected writers. The author argues that today the negative narration is connected with highlighting the misfortunes which are supposed to result from the lack of Internet regulations.
