Synopsis

Are we doomed because of the new digital technologies used in workspaces? Can we avoid measuring in our work? Or are we trapped in a metrification dystopia? Can we create workspaces that can produce what we prefer about human effort, and if yes, what technologies could we use?



Here, monetary-theorist Irene Sotiropoulou explores and critiques the production means that were created for capitalist profit-making, showing how we can subvert these and use them for our own non-capitalist purposes. Machines against Measure shows that in times of capitalist restructuring and multiple social reproduction crises, there open up new possibilities to experiment with quantity, measuring, machines and digital technologies, creating new ways of production and transaction. Within these, are ways of sharing that defy many principles of capitalist production. Using everyday examples from grassroots organisations, this offers new insights into how to be inventive with what we have at hand, revealing a more utopian vision of technology and work, based on re-defining how we measure what we do.
