rushkoff on his new book, “present shock”

always intriguing, this one looks even better

But “present shock” is also as simple as the botox addicts on Real Housewives of Orange County, desperate to lock in the moment when they were 29 years old. All succeed in doing is paralyzing their faces in a poor imitation of that moment, and making themselves unavailable to the social moment in which they are living. They can’t register emotions on their faces, which is why they never believe one another. They are “overwinding” the present moment.

I’m reading more and watching less in general lately, partly due to buying a nook for my birthday, and partly due to how little what I want to see is easily available to watch at home.

and I’m going through some pretty big shifts, so I’m posting even less.
