We have developed a unique experimental ‘race mashup’, consolidating data from the internet produced from search terms such as ‘racism’, ‘multiculturalism’ and immigration’. Social networking sites (Delicious, Facebook, Twitter etc.), Blogs and News feeds are tracked in real-time, generating a dynamic snap-shot of the multiplicity of race discourses on the net.
