I’ve already referenced it my “On the side” miniblog, but it’s worth mentioning again here. Christine Rosen’s essay in the latest issue of The New Atlantis, “The Age of Egocasting,” is a must-read.
You’ll never look at your remote control the same again. Rosen delivers a probing critique of the way we have increasingly personalized technology to the detriment of community. It’s lengthy, but you’ll be glad you read it.
