[Nettime-bold] good things and lazy thoughts

On the recent crossfire between  New and  Old  worlds on who has priority
for saying
sensible critical things about (in this case) "WestCoast techno-lib".  Take
a moment, pause -
think how we in Canada look on at this jousting.

New  and Old.  No need to go back to 1776, to the Revolution (which we
never bothered with).   Somehow, few of you out there ever seemed  to
understand that McLuhan was always a *satirist*, much more than a
techno-optimist.  That's in part why it was so insufferable for us to see
him sanctified as he was, on the Wired masthead.
