Autonomy vs. mindlessness in the shadowlands of your cybernetworked skull. Critical theory and beginning media history for the computing human being "optimized for machinery." Power, status is at stake based on our ability to demystify media and how it works. As with fiction writing, we have to continue to refuse to accept things at face value, and then join the process of making/hacking them to be different.
