Just some of my favorite quotes from what I read this past week on tech&society:
“The appeal of TED comes as much from its presentation as from its substance”
“Just because the picture looks artsy doesn’t mean you are”
“consuming & owning the present moment has become more important than capturing an experience”
“many-to-many communication is becoming impossible without a for-profit many-to-one infrastructure”
“one of the first names considered for the iPhone was actually “iPad”
“Scholars tend not to think about writing sentences that will make readers throw panties or send flowers”
“computational social science may make surveillance, profiling, and targeting overly accessible”
“FB eager to make “connection” an addictive substance, make it instrumental, gratifying, mood regulating rather than given of consciousness”
“I never really felt safe on Facebook“
