<nettime> A Puff Piece on Wikipedia (Fwd)



Karl-Erik Tallmo :

-It will be like
-trying to debate anonymously in a darkened room where everybody
-listens and talks through microphones and headphones with som
-equalizing sound device that makes voices unrecognizable. Even all
-sense of direction would be lost.

And that would be a good thing or a bad thing depending on whether you were
giving or taking direction.

Of course, there are sub-cultures that meet anonymously in darkened rooms.
There, issues of dominance and submission are resolved through far older,
pre-verbal, forms of debate. And perhaps a truer 'sense of direction' is
found.
