Just some of my favorite quotes from what I read this past week on tech&society:
“why is it that speculative art & fiction is the only means of confronting & thinking about surveillance culture?”
“Within the digital arena, however, the [dead] body is mummified in the encasing of social media and the face these platforms maintain for the dead”
“Kickstarter is just another form of entertainment. It’s QVC for the Net set”
“the desire of theory always involves a dimension of universalism”
“beautiful books become consumable objects that describe the taste of the reader who proudly displays them”
“What does it mean to feel empathy for a twitter feed?”
“we are attuned not only to possibilities of documenting, but also to possibilities of being documented”
“consumers are consumed with consumption, take pleasure from pleasure, desire to desire and want to want”
“Comic-Con protesters call cyberpunk doorway to demonic possession“
