In examining the recent past, it can help us appreciate what we have now. Appreciating what we have now is important because we should never take our situation for granted. Communities and technologies come and go, but underlying principles remain the same. Whether you have bookmarks or index cards, you still need to know how to find what you’re looking for. Communities surrounding practice also need to record their history. Your motivation to do so will depend on your engagement, and ambitions for that community and your place in it.

This caught my eye and took me back to Block 1: Cyberculture. I’m reminded of Discworld’s luggage, though without so many legs.

Meta: The following posts are supposed to be images of Cyborg, robots, political and environmental themes from the dystopian future view. IFTTT is suitably opaque…

Towards my artefact, clones identified only by a bar code. Also the original author’s comment regards privacy and freedom strikes a chord, generally about perceptions of technology.

The ubiquitous USB format still alive and kicking and just the right size to jack-in to upload some new learning, maybe. But clearly the addict is the subject here. Maybe we’re all enslaved to the information culture we live in.

He looks human. Cyborgs in the Bladerunner universe are indistinguishable from humans when pictured holding a dove, with an ear cut off, in the rain….

Immersing myself in images and photos is quite relaxing. This is another cyberpunk excursion in the universe of the Bladerunner.

The idea of security by the machine is taken up by Eset, an internet security/Anti-Virus company, the products and services of which I have used in the past. Fitting in with the idea of AI, but also perhaps fitting with Harroway’s genderless cyborg. We assign a male gender to this robot (or do we?), so perhaps we feel more secure under its watchful eyes than a specifically genderless design, but would it work similarly if the robot was obviously female?

The lips almost appear to be stitched, were the vertical lines extended to the top lip. Quite unsettling. I take less notice of the chunk of silicon welded on to the side of the face.
Just Pinned to Future: The process was quite amazing. I couldn’t wait to see what I would look like when I had it done. http://ift.tt/2kZ8Jpb
