countryside to spend our respects to Sophie. She was gracious, alert, and, in her 80’s, embarking upon what she described as the start of her personal writing profession soon after so a lot of decades in the shadow lands of her husband’s. She pointed me towards his writing space. I rose from the easy chair and edged towards it with the sense of numinosity that one usually reserves for the method to a great cathedral.

Your acquiescing response to subtle and not so subtle efforts to coopt this political revolution, by what I contemplate unsavory actors, was in my thoughts a harbinger of factors to come. And issues came.
Upon reading DdeLong’s thesis above, I am impressed that she managed to gangpress and collapse Rushkoff’s ideas about how he approaced the enw media Ecology, which is very impressive, type the operate she has completed. I also marvel at her comparing and contrasting some other Meida intellectuals, and goes on to show how and why Rushkoff’s deductions are relevant these days.
