Why is this approach worthwhile? The results of research should help you relate to the real world. Research is often about constructing categories, concepts. We then use these categories to make statements, suggestions, inferences about the real world. But once these are released on the real world, they can have issues in practice, or when data does not fit into structures we have created. Ex// feeling that one does not fit into social categories. or entering “N/A”
Adorno and Horkheimer: (The culture industry: enlightenment as mass deception)
Values, Ethics, Cultures, exist even in environments of “pure” scientific research. When we conduct research we follow scientific processes.
Reliability: Dependency, consistency of measurable variable. ex// metric measurement.
Validity: ‘truth’ value, proper use of procedures, the ability of someone else following the same procedures to get the same results, and the ability of that other person to view those results as something that accurately reflects reality.
Residual category: things that do not fit into your research categories.
Data visualization: ex/ the counted website by the guardian
Probes: not worried about reliability and validity. They merely should do two things: generate some level of engagement and provide interesting responses.
