Matthew Wall-Smith : The Network Society: A Shift in Cognitive Ecologies?

asc says: "By examining the psychodynamic effects on human cognition of the 

adoption of the technology of writing we can logically assess and contextualize the 

potential effect of the massification of networked information systems on our 

day-to-day thought processes. The identification of congruent, parallel and 

differential affect between writing and network technologies demands that their 

development be considered above and beyond the dictates and imperatives of 

consumer capitalism, it demands that the Internet be thought of in terms of public 

infrastructure rather than saleable capital."

asc says: Dude, where's my car?

bendoh says: did a lawyer write that?

bendoh says: He should have put a smiley face at the end of that. It would've made 

it all better.

asc says: Academic.

asc says: Lawyers would almost certainly argue in favour of saleable captial 

because then it would subject to all kinds of litigation.

bendoh says: I would not want to read that paper. It would make my head fall off 

and subsequently explode.

asc says: That would be a symptom of massification and the differential aspect of 

the network.

bendoh says: If I could think of anything remotely witty to respond to that with, I 

would say it.

asc says: Dude, where's my car?

bendoh says: hehe
