I find it very tiring to reply to every email,greet all friends in FB and make sure I get the right news first. I found I was depressed when I lost mu iphone the other day, not because it is expensive but because I was push out of the online world since then.
I hated it when my phone was offline now all the time and I cannot track it down using the .mac account. I sent out the erased all instruction yesterday. I will forever lost my iphone. Requiem.
Here is a piece of new that I missed :
The need to create order and find meaning in the gigantic quantity of online data has turned the search engine into our most significant point of reference. In this query driven society, The Society of the Query conference seeks to analyze what impact our reliance on resources to manage knowledge on the Internet has on our culture.
They have a fabulous speakers line up including : Matthew Fuller (UK), David Gugerli (CH), Siva Vaidhyanathan (US), Florian Cramer (NL), Lev Manovich (US), Christophe Bruno (FR), Joris van Hoboken (NL) and Teresa Numerico (IT).
Hey wait no IT people and google people....arty, media culture policy people talks about search engine, it is cool.
