Long Teaching Day
This morning in my undergrad Digital Democracy, Digital Anti-Democracy class its Technopriests day with discussions of Noble's Religion of Technology, Morozov's "Meme Hustler," Buljewski's "Cult of Sharing," Purdy's "God of the Digirati" and Lanier on AI. That's nine to noon accounted for; then one to four it's my graduate Introduction to Critical Theory. Today we're reading Barthes' Mythologies with the usual digression into Saussure, then Williams' keyword "Culture." Expect low to no blogging as usual till the weekend, I'd say.
