By introducing the Cloud as the ultimate solution to future proof our data storage, Google and other Big Tech corporations ensured that our digital infrastructures now depend on these large investments.

A part of what we store in the cloud, is our digital past. Our dependence on digital technologies is growing, but its structural ecological impact is only just starting to be discussed. Does the power of Big Tech means that our digital memory is at risk? Do we really want to save everything in the Cloud? In her blog, Marije Miedema explains why we need to start thinking about data autonomy.

Marije Miedema is an interfaculty PhD candidate with a background in the visual arts researching the future of our digital past, connected to the Knowledge Infrastructures department at Campus Fryslan and the Department of Media and Journalism Studies.
