AO. people as information infrastructure.

  • Mavhunga notes the social network of people who were key nodes of information sharing (e.g. Javuendava pg 155 and MaTshangana’s network page 180). He also notes some people as being key in shielding the information and protecting it (dying instead of sharing the info page 197) while others sold out and shared the information (page 204). The “data”  and “info” therefore are not technical in this case but human. This evokes Simone AbdouMalique's idea of "people as infrastructure", esp. in the context of information sharing.
