Re: <nettime> Evgeny Morozov and the Perils of "Highbrow Journalism"


I noticed that too Brian, and acknowledge him for that! Well done. But
then? this is all about a network, a context, community & attribution.
Maybe we do not need anything like that. Keith is right about that.
Good theory and criticism does not need that at all. As long as it
hits, and hurts. Our group Adilkno was fun, and lasted for a good 15
years as a group (1984-2000). Luther has been inactive for a while,
isn't it? The original Italian group stopped using the name long time
ago? Geert
