Re: <nettime> nottime: the end of nettime


Yes, nice April fools joke, nice parody of the type of cool kids, tech-determinist, change celebration, fast-capitalism, rhetoric not only hegemonizing the tech sector and pop culture but also colonizing much pseudo-critical media studies discourse. 

e.g. 
>Â "It's slow -- sometimes slower
than a mailed letter would be, at this point. It takes time to read
and write. And there's no images, no video, no memes, no numbers,
stats or ranks, no friends or followers -- in short, there's not much
to like about it. 

.... Hasn't everyone else moved on to the post-digital? 'Posttime,' anyone?"
But now that its after April 1st, its (net)time to tell everyone its: "April fools"?

I look forward to many more years of slow reading and thoughtful deliberation...thank you to all,
