Social space and iPods

The Sony Walkman has done more to change human perception than any virtual reality gadget. William Gibson, Time Out , 1993

I can’t overestimate the importance of having all my music available all the time. It gives me an unprecedented level of emotional control over my life. Michael Bull, ”No Dead Air!”

sound engulfs the spatial thus problematizing the relation between subject and object. Michael Bull, ”The World According to Sound”

Michael Bull, ”The World According to Sound”

iPod users make the urban street conform to their own aesthetic desire Michael Bull, ”No Dead Air!”

Social websites I use Facebook - procrastinating with my friends, under the guise of 'networking'. MySpace - MySpace is dead. Last.fm - music service which logs what I listen to. Wordpress - two self-hosted blogs, one for work and one for play. Del.icio.us - bookmarking service. Simpy - another bookmarking service. Tumblr - a micro-blog, mostly for re-posting what I find on the web. All Consuming - updating what I read, watch and listen to. Twitter - brief updates about what I do. Flickr - photos. SpongeFish - social community focussing on user-submitted knowledge. Wists - wishlist. LinkedIn - dunno. Networking site, but pretty useless.

What we say matters less than the fact that we are saying it in the network. Steven Shaviro, Connected

Soft Machines

Social interaction is based on technological connections

we need technological devices in order to interact with others

we must extend our bodies into technology, or be cut off from the network.

the delirium of advanced technology has been entirely woven into the texture of everyday life Steven Shaviro, Connected

Steven Shaviro, Connected

We occupy layers of space rather than a singular space

Each time we extend ourselves technologically, some part of the real gives way to the virtual. Steven Shaviro, Connected

Steven Shaviro, Connected

that which is “artificially” constructed by human beings, are now becoming hybridized so that the time of nature and the time of culture are becoming inseparable for the mutants that we are. Gray Kochhar-Lindgren, TechnoLogics

Presence is less signifcant, participation is paramount.

Be connected.
