<nettime> HME's 10 rules (yet again)

Hi there,

What a great flow of emotions Herr Enzensberger has generated
over these days; seems like his 10 points for survival in the
overlapping realms of the analog and digital worlds (as opposed to
the post-digital mash-up which probably lies somewhere gestating in
psychedelic glory in a basement somewhere between Seattle and San
Jose) has created quite a stir. Rather than focusing, yet again, on
the nuances of the 10 points, which others have done quite well, let
me cut to the chase: the final paragraph in Enzensberger's casual
reminder to Germany' citizens. "The sleep of reason will continue to
the day when a majority of this country's citizens will experience
firsthand what has been done to them. Perhaps, they will rub their
eyes and ask why they let it slip in a time when resistance was still

Thanks Florian for the translation. One wonders if Herr Enzensberger
imagined his subtle prodding would spread its wings so far and wide.
