So, this week, the Theorizing the Web conference happened, which is why this roundup is a day late. Thanks everyone for coming, following, participating, donating, being awesome, and so on…
Also, Nicholas Carr, the author of The Shallows posted a critique of this blog’s critique of “digital dualism” on his Rough Type Blog.
The posts he took on are my coining of “digital dualism“, my IRL Fetish essay, and my recent refinement of the term, as well as David Banks’ post about his #TtW13 talk (note that the work by other authors of Cyborgology is left out).
I responded. David Banks responded. Tyler Bickford responded. Michael Sacacas responded. More to come!
