<nettime> a call to the army of love etc. etc.

dear Mark Stahlman and others

sorry about jumping in like this, I follow the various conversation on this list and at times feel a great irritation at the flippant manner in which words are bantered about.

how bizarre to hear people railing against machines and other devices that somehow materialised during the 20th century when the very discourses they are engaged in is facilitated by 'machines' technologies' 'inventions' and a vast array of 20th century paraphernalia - not only is this some kind of simplistic Luddite rubbish but also the kind of apolitical posturing that is hermetic and not at all constructive.
