Here is a nice short piece by the preposterous Kenneth Goldsmith (author of such books as Day and Fidget) entitled “If It Doesn’t Exist on the Internet, It Doesn’t Exist,” written in 2005. I know you may hear that and think “uh, yea… and?” but don’t let the title fool you. This is a sharp essay with hidden, finer points. Noting the transformation of the army of sensitive males (of just over a decade ago) who’s brain impulses compelled them to venture out and spend too much time hunting and collecting record albums in hidden, cavernous shops - into those who irresponsibly monopolize their time doing the exact same thing, except on upload-blogs and file-sharing programs, is a graduating class I’ve been perpetually booby trapped into. I don’t agree with his prediction of the eventual slow death of the existing services of Netflix, a business model that I find rather ingenious for a lot of reasons that have to do with the way people experience film (although I will confess that my habit of repeatedly playing DVDs of films I love on the TV with the sound off next to the computer where I’m writing and working, as a kind visual accompaniment and distracting stimulation - has slowly transformed into me actually playing the DVDs on my computer, and shrinking the frame down into a little flickering window in the upper right corner of my browser screen). Embracing the kinds of potentials computers and bandwidth can deliver is all about murdering the weeping child of your past (the one that enjoyed the tactile sense of packaging, collecting things with mass, and the social interaction of flesh and blood) and throwing a “welcome home” party for you alone inside your hidden, deep, dark cave. Ah-ha! Computers really are a secret evil plot by artificial intelligence to reverse human evolution! I recommend reading Kenny’s piece. I found it on the internet, here.
