Something I happened to mention in LS earlier today. It's rather long, but a fairly interesting read.

Zadie Smith on the topic of Facebook

Quote :
When a human being becomes a set of data on a website like Facebook, he or she is reduced. Everything shrinks. Individual character. Friendships. Language. Sensibility. In a way it’s a transcendent experience: we lose our bodies, our messy feelings, our desires, our fears. It reminds me that those of us who turn in disgust from what we consider an overinflated liberal-bourgeois sense of self should be careful what we wish for: our denuded networked selves don’t look more free, they just look more owned.








In memory of Shuyan, wherever you are.

It's an article I read earlier today and mentioned to Aurie and Kadan.
