Blogging, the nihilist impulse

Lovink, Geert

Media theorist and Internet activist Geert Lovink formulates a theory of weblogs that goes beyond the usual rhetoric of citizens' journalism. Blogs lead to decay, he writes. What's declining is the "Belief in the Message". Instead of presenting blog entries as mere self-promotion, we should interpret them as decadent artefacts that remotely dismantle the broadcast model.


The banality of blogging

Kambouri Nelly and Pavlos Hatzopoulos

The banality of blogging or how does the web affect the private public dichotomy. Is blogging the means by which the ‘feminine’ voices previously excluded from public discourse and kept hidden in the ‘private’ sphere, can now be released? Is blogging a means of affirming the public character of private practices, ask Kambouri and Hatzopoulos.


A Skeptical View of Computing


Does daily life require computers, digital networks? They're irrelevant to cooking, driving, visiting, negotiating, eating, hiking, dancing, speaking, and gossiping. You don't need a keyboard to bake bread, play touch football, piece a quilt, build a stone wall, recite a poem, or say a prayer. Virtual communities chatter about cybersex, cybersluts, and cyberporn, but the real thing isn't there.


The Skeptic

Stoll, Cliff

"When I'm online, I'm alone in a room, tapping on a keyboard, staring at a cathode-ray tube. I'm ignoring anyone else in the room. The nature of being online is that I can't be with someone else. Rather than bringing me closer to others, the time that I spend online isolates me from the most important people in my life, my family, my friends, my neighborhood, my community."
