Abstract or Description

This paper seeks to explore whether the psychogeographic technique of dérive can be used to break out of the directed pattern of 'search to find' in the online space following from Lev Manovich's con-cept of the Poetics of Navigation. An online psychogeographical dérive could be a form of digital resistance to the various ways information is being dictated to us from contemporary authoritarian rules and search engines.
