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


Liking and liking and quoting and responding is something one does
as part of a libidinous txt economy. It is circulating desire. If
it becomes a must, an obligation, people stop doing it over night.
In today's like economy you never quote or link to your enemy or
competitor or rival (or give it a name). That's all too human. Not
hard to understand. And this is why the whole Google search logic
is fundamentally fraud. An epistimological mistake. If you want to
downgrade your foe, ignore, that's the real law of the cyber economy.

Ciao, Geert
