Disrupt, For Real: Richard Eskow Makes A Case for Nationalizing Big Tech
Salon : [L]aw professor Susan Crawford argues that “high-speed wired Internet access is as basic to innovation, economic growth, social communication, and the country’s competitiveness as electricity was a century ago.” Broadband as a public utility? If not...

Poets Not Prophets
I blame the prevalence of futurology, that most debased and hyperbolic marketing discourse, for the way SF peddles personal preoccupations as prescience to no purpose.

Grading
Deep in final papers this weekend, hence the lazy YouTube make-do posting procedures. On top of the dense buzzsaw of grading this mountain of papers and notebooks before a new term and a new intensive begins next week, I must admit that the blatantly reacti...

Spontaneous Marching Orders
Every single anarcho-spontaneist fancy, whether of the right or of the left, is a variation of "born on third base, think you hit a triple."

Futurology peddles SF's poetry as prophesy to profiteers for profit. More Futurological Brickbats here .

Techno-Passive-Aggressive
Using the term "technology," like using the passive voice, distracts attention from or disavows responsibility for actions of human beings. More Futurological Brickbats here .

"Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All"
Introduction

From Wikipedia: "Dale Carrico (born 1965) is an American critical theorist and rhetorician. He has extensively criticized the commercially-inflected rhetoric of futurology and the prudence of geoengineering. Carrico is a lecturer in the Department of Rhetoric at the University of California at Berkeley, from which he received his PhD. in 2005, and is also a member of the visiting faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute... [He] teaches philosophy, critical theory, and science and technology studies, focusing on the planetarity of both environmental concerns and peer-to-peer media formations [and] writes about the politics of technoscience, developmentalist ideology, futurological subcultures, and the suffusion of public life by marketing norms on his blog, Amor Mundi."
