-> HANG UP YOUR HANG-UPS
-> THE INTERNET - EXTENDED REMIX
- This is not a big thing; it is a small part of an even smaller project.
- After all the big names, the big ideas and theories - after Theory writ large,
- DJ Vu is mixing it up, not hung up about memory and forgetting.
- It is not a generalized footnote, not an omniscient archive,
- no Hegelian repository of the world spirit, no emanation of collective soul,
- not a totalitarian big brother, nor a big machine for forgetting...
-> BEYOND MEMORY VS. FORGETTING
- Untranslatably, unrepeatably, a certain media logic
- of recognition: a mixture of calculated stimulation
- and sudden fatigue: déjà vu is the mode of perception.
-> MEDIA THEORY
- After years of casting about for intelligent ideas about the internet,
- the least stupid by far seems to be juxtaposition, the DJ View :
- do not be phobic, sample some techno-talk and microphilosophy...
-> DESIGN AND PROGRESS?
- Some will find these pages old school. I have not been able to update everything.
- The tools for web design have evolved, and people get used to animated sites;
- I still like writing. For more visual stimulation, turn on the TV.
- While this site contains some German, Spanish and French, the bulk is English.
- There are no excuses for this monobrow... but there seemed to be good
- reasons for moving it to Britain and subsequently to the United States.
-> GIFT ECONOMY
- We used to believe that the internet was the medium for free exchange.
- Not that we expected no kickbacks, but we did all of this for free.
- Now we think of ourselves as a philanthropists of the new economy.
-> WISE UP
- It's not what you thought when you first began it
You got what you want now you can hardly stand it, though
By now you know it's not going to stop
- It's not going to stop, no it's not going to stop
'Til you wise up. No, it's not going to stop
So just give up. (Aimee Mann)
