Cyberselfish, Fifteen Years Later
I've been teaching Paulina Borsook for all fifteen of the years she has been "absent" (and am teaching her again this term in my Digital Democracy, Digital Anti-Democracy seminar in the City) so these pieces are amplifying an abiding presence for me. Still, Geert Lovink (who introduces the pieces, and is somebody else I am teaching this term as usual) has provided a service and a pleasure with these. Her attitude toward libertechbrotarians and Google buses strongly suggests they should put Borsook in charge of ValleyWag to see if it can jump back the shark it jumped when they booted Biddle.
