Digital Maoism ??!! u don’t say…

“The disaster related to free culture is still in its early stages… The combination of hive mind and advertising has resulted in a new knd of social contract…Wealth [is] ever more concentrated… If we can’t reformulate digital ideals before our appointment with destiny, we will have failed to bring about a better world. Instead we will usher in a dark age in which everything human is devalued. … This kind of devaluation will go into high gear when information systems become able to act without constant human intervention in the physical world through robots and other automatic gadgets. In a crowdsourced world, the peasants of the noosphere will ride a dismal boomerang between gradual impoverishment under robot-driven capitalism and a dangerously sudden, desperate socialism.”

excerpts from Jaron Lanier’s “You Are Not A Gadget”

Ok, we’ll be back to analyze, and to explain his use of the terms Digital Maosim, Cybernetic Totalism, Retropolis … and a whole incredible bundled-glossary which comes in his head-on assessments of the digital landscapes we are now inhabiting.
