cyborgs rule us – the man/machine coalition begins

An interesting thing! Don’t have twitter so I’ll just jab it here.

Looks like a pretty basic information app, but is interesting in a media specific analysis context – all the MPs presented with data in a certain mediated way, digital technology influencing decisions about people and maybe even digital technology (a feedback loop!). Is it just a useful tool which only makes obvious the mediated way that Cameron and co. make decisions based on patterns of data? Or is it a little bit HAL 9000?
