Swarm Episode 3: Critical Mass

The Yarn

06-04-2022 • 17分

If there’s one thing humans love, it’s doing things en masse.

From fashion to collecting data, building algorithms, and social contact, we always seem to demand more. Sometimes, finding the balance is difficult. And we don't always get it right. This week on Swarm our journalists investigate the dark side of swarm behaviour.

Reporting by Yue Jiang, Maya Pilbrow, and Julie Barman.

These stories have been produced as part of an upcoming exhibition with the Science Gallery Melbourne. They were developed together with mentors from All The Best.

The Yarn is produced at the Centre for Advancing Journalism, at the University of Melbourne.
