New bookmark: EFF "Net Culture & Cyber-Anthropology" Archive. Lots and lots of material there, including these two:
- Beyond Orality/Literacy Dichotemy: James Joyce and the Prehistory of Cyberspace" by Donald Theall (1992)
Bruce Sterling: The Life and Death of Media. A speech which has a very interesting bit on the history of Incan information storage media: the quipu.
The Abominable Dr. Phibes is back!
Via Retrogression, a good breakdown of a survey on self censorship among journalists. Quite an interesting issue; IMHO it is one of the reasons we need more diversity in the institutions we rely on for information.
Something I've always wondered:
If knowledge is power, and power corrupts, then is ignorance bliss?
