Internet Delivers People (2008) - Ramsay Stirling


I didn't defend the surf clubs in terms of semiotics. You are probably thinking of Marcin Ramocki's essay.

Internet Delivers People (2008) - Ramsay Stirling


The "task of massively modulating/modifying culture" is indeed easily ridiculable.
No one needs a new media "straw man" when the real thing is right over here on Rhizome.
"Admirably Warholean"--this is bad, pompous writing.

Response to "New Media Artists vs Artists With Computers"


Hi, Ceci,
Thanks for the response and giving some examples (which my post avoided). I hope to respond on my page soon.
Best, Tom

Re: "Shoutout to Women"
These Rhizome threads are horrible dudefests and Petra is brave to come on here.
I have several women blogger friends that read these threads in horror.
Not to say women can't act like dudes but none of the ones I know want to--there is something fundamentally ugly here.
I'm certainly guilty of sparring but it seems like the only possible stance in this environment.
Without a decent human moderator commenters are rude and people are allowed to just make shit up (MTAA) and smile about it.
You try to come on and correct the disinformation and possibly lose your temper--then you are told you need anger management and asked why you are defensive. You are told "it's an open board and we're just exchanging ideas, man."
Petra is right, it's a circle jerk and fuck all y'all.

Just so it's clear, this whole thread was based on T.Whid's and M.River's not listening to the moderator's questions.
