What’s in a number? In the case of the U.S. Social Security number, the now-familiar nine digits hold a fascinating story about modern citizenship, governance and data. Starting in 1936, the SSN was affixed to more and more American lives, spurring new uses of punch cards and filing systems as well as novel dilemmas about personal data. This talk gives a brief history of the SSN and what it reveals about the changing state of “our” information.
