Truthiness Network Collaborative

We are in the process of launching what we’re calling the “Truthiness Network Collaborative” to advance research and engagement around the misinformation, disinformation, propaganda and other challenges to discourse fueled by our evolving media and technology ecosystem. As the abundance and fractiousness of the networked media environment envelops public and private life and creates profound risks for individuals, institutions and democracy, boundaries are blurring; technology, processes and practices are failing; norms and roles are in question; and regulation is more complicated than ever. Real and lasting harms are growing, which collectively we will be hard-pressed to staunch, let alone undo. The future is only more grave unless we better understand these interactions and develop informed approaches to making media and technology work for, not against, us.
