(Sincere question: Too many tags?)
When not pontificating in defense of irrelevant scruples, I stay up to date on what I consider literature and news, which is neither literature nor news, but is equally edifying.
I’d love to hear opinions, dismissive or otherwise, on the discussion here linked, which touches fleetingly on many social issues surrounding technology. But these social issues are a mere aside, compared to considerations of what Hillis calls “the actual,” which might equally well be deemed “the so ubiquitous and obvious as to be difficult to perceive.”
I am particularly interested in your thoughts on Gopnik’s and Galison’s replies to Griffiths.
