The Revolution will not be Blogged

You will not be able to read it at home, brother.
You will not be able to log on, log in and syndicate your feed.
You will not be able to lose hours in MetaFilter and Kuro5hin,
Click on text ads for naked punk girls with online diaries,
Because the revolution will not be blogged. […]

– where one can also read this rather rad text, some excerpts here [is this written by bruce sterling? not sure]:

I’m a modern man, digital and smoke-free; a man for the millennium. A diversified, multi-cultural, post-modern deconstructionist; politically, anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been uplinked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced. I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, bi-coastal multi-tasker, and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond. I’m new-wave, but I’m old-school; […] A raging workaholic, a working rageaholic: out of rehab and in denial. […] You can’t shut me up; you can’t dumb me down. ‘Cause I’m tireless, and I’m wireless. I’m an alpha-male on beta-blockers. […] I bought a microwave at a mini-mall. I bought a mini-van at a mega-store. I eat fast food in the slow lane.
