Three minutes and thirty two seconds: In lieu of a full post, here’s an essay I wrote, almost exactly ten years ago, about Le Tigre’s “Get Off The Internet”, and the backlash against the Internet in the wake of the 2000 US elections and the dotcom bust. I could have written most of the essay yesterday, obviously: what I didn’t anticipate in 2001 was how both backlash and defense would freeze into permanent aspects of the web, each of them a position to be reached for, often by the same people. Each of them a comfort. “This is repetitive / But nothing has changed.”
What would your 3’32” track be?
