essay on network culture: Kazys Varnelis

Fredric Jameson's classic description of Postmodernism as the cultural logic of late capitalism is now well over twenty years old. Jameson's analysis is crucial for understanding late twentieth century thinking. But where are we now? Kazys Varnelis has recently posted his text for the Networked Publics book. It is well worth the read and I'll perhaps go into detail with a follow up post. For now I'm kinda lovin' this "handy" chart at left (click for full size).

Funny, I don't see apocalypse anywhere :) but Hegel shows up...
