Re: <nettime> Live Your Models

   Hi Florian,
   Thanks a lot for your explanations!
   All my best,

   Hello Frederic,

   1/ on the one hand, you show very well that "there is hardly a system
   that is more dependent on�efficiency-optimized global supply chains,
   high investments into manufacturing capacities, economics of scale and,
   well, the neoliberal economic system as computer electronics," you
   criticize the "naive automation" of the three last decades, you insist
   on the fact that our electronics society leans on "rare" metals;
   2/ but you also argue that "a modern big�furniture factory is
   significantly more environmentally and�resource-friendly than a
   FabLab; and of course, a modern data center�centrally hosting several
   thousand or million websites is�environmentally more friendly than
   thousand or million micro servers in�individual homes," siding with
   accelerationists who - like "post-environmentalists,"
   "eco-pragmatists," etc. - reject so called "Folk politics."
