How Many Likes Does It Take To Get To The Summit of Techno-Pop?
The way tech-talkers follow me on twitter when I use their favorite words and then unfollow me a day later when they realize I use their favorite words critically is actually quite hilarious.

Let The Horse Race Commence!
Trump didn't apologize for ANYTHING and so, of course, pundits are acting as if he apologized for EVERYTHING.

Body Shaming Trump Is Trumpian Not Anti-Trumpian Politics
I admit with some shame that yesterday I had an initial guffaw at the naked Trump statues ... but it didn't take long for me to feel uneasy and then gross and
then frankly enraged about them. "Humiliating" Trump because he has an
aging flabby body is hard...

"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."
