Psychomedia analysis by the montage archives maestro, about”how computers have not liberated us but distorted and simplified our view of the world around us”.

Part 1 – The story of two perfect worlds. One is the small group of disciples around the novelist Ayn Rand in the 1950s who saw themselves as a prototype for a future society where everyone could follow their own selfish desires. The other is the global utopia that digital entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley set out to create in the 1990s.

Notes from our XLt hacklab advisors ( thx Db ):

Added: Part 1: Love and Power , All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace  -(1/5) already on Youtube, broken up in 5 sections ( though 3/5 seems already blocked, perhaps due ironicly to a Leonard Cohen song. We think he’d disapprove !).

And Note: if Your are Not in the UK, and would like to try and watch via BBC2 website :

>  you can also try to make your computer act like it has British IP address, then you get BBC stream straight… you need a VPN for that, found a free VPN for UK here:
