A variety of technologies have emerged in the last decade that make it easier and cheaper than ever before to make representations of everyday mobile embodiment. Increasing numbers of people are quantifying and self-tracking their everyday lives recording behavioural, biological and environmental data (Beer, 2016; Neff & Nafus, 2016) using a variety of technologies, for example: • lightweight wearable cameras such as the GoPro allowing users to record footage of their most banal everyday activities; • devices such as the Fitbit and Apple Watch bringing continuous physiological monitoring out of the medical realm and into mainstream culture; • apps like Strava allowing people to quantify their cycling, running and walking activities; • lightweight devices for measuring brain activity (EEG) and stimulation (EDA) becoming sufficiently robust and discreet to be used in non-lab environments. None of the underlying technologies are novel, but as they are made accessible in cheaper and more user-friendly packages, new techniques and sources of data are becoming more readily available for geographical analysis. Engagement with these technologies has created a rapidly expanding area of investigation within geography. The emergence of the quantified-self poses both opportunities and dilemmas for geographical thought. We wish to move past simplistic protests that dismiss such technology as offering another take on Haraway's (1988) 'god trick', presenting partial, and highly situated data as objective truth. Instead, this session will build on the potential identified by Delyser and Sui (2013) to take more inventive approaches toward mobile methods. The focus will be on how these technologies can be engaged with by critical geographers to bring new perspectives to their analysis of everyday embodiment.

Bureau of Meteorology in Australia was hacked by foreign spies


It is "likely" state-sponsored hackers successfully stole information from Australia's Bureau of Meteorology (BoM), authorities confirmed Wednesday. A report by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) disclosed new details about an incident in 2015 involving Australia's government weather service. SEE ALSO: It's war: U.S. officially blames Russia for recent hacks In 2015, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) detected "suspicious activity" on two computers within the Bureau's network -- an incident that was first reported by the ABC. In the report, the ASD associated the tools used by the hackers with state-sponsored attacks. "On investigation, ASD identified the presence of particular Remote Access Tool (RAT) malware popular with state-sponsored cyber adversaries, amongst other malware associated with cybercrime," the report explains.
