Robot Army of Redressers? book
This chapter summarises the key concepts discussed in the book and concludes that the ambivalence of a quantified workplace movement must be critically analysed with regard to the emerging possibilities for control at work through control of both the mind and the body; the implications for workers' motivation, as well as the potential for an emergence of history whereby workers in the Fordist factory became some of the most organised in labour history or where we see a digital Army of Redressers. The book outlines the prominent digitalised working environments and their conditions, including platform and gig work and electronically monitored office and warehouse workers. It catalogues four interviews with specific individuals who are very well versed in self-tracking. Their stories and insights give exceptional weight to the book's arguments, not least because they have practitioner experience in a number of related fields.
