Episode Info: A fascinating chat with Liam Berriman, Lecturer in Childhood and Youth Studies (Social Work and Social Care) at University of Sussex. About Liam:  A sociologist by training, Liam completed a BA in History and Sociology and an MA in Social Research, at Goldsmiths, UoL. During his Masters he carried out research on how working class parents negotiate children's internet access. In 2015 he was appointed as a Research Lecturer in Digital Humanities & Social Science in the Sussex Humanities Lab, working on collaborative projects around digital culture, archives, computational ethnography, toys and the history of computing.  An Associate of the Sussex Humanities Lab, he supports the Digital Lives and Memories strand. In 2018 he was appointed Lecturer in Childhood and Youth Studies in the Department of Social Work & Social Care, primarily contributing to the MA Childhood and Youth Studies and BA Childhood and Youth programmes and co-leading an elective on the 'Everyday Digital'.      In this episode we explore the following: - Impact of gaming on the shape and feel of wider tech - and nostalgia that it brings. - The self-identification online by young people. - How burden of responsibility around tech is wrongly put on shoulders of young people, not the tech orgs. - Whether gov policy can keep up with pace of change in tech - particularly when online and digital structures are becoming part and parcel of everyday life, driven by private companies.  - What’s happening with data around children and young people: where do we see connections between data and care of children? - Children in the social care system: New machine learning to attempt to predict young people who might be at risk… a bit like Minority Report.
