You are not a gadget

I’m back from an academic conference in Hull, where I presented a paper outlining my area of research  (more on that later).

A couple of people at Virt3C were talking about Jaron Lanier‘s ‘You are not a Gadget.’  I’ve ordered the book – in the meantime, here is Lanier’s call to arms against digital collectivism, and his proposal for more productive ways in which technology might interact with our culture.

There’s a shorter Lanier interview with Aleks Krotoski of Virtual Revolution and academia fame here
