Social media and movements: is the love affair really over? – “Both mainstream social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, and alternative platforms, such as Crabgrass and n-1, can be an important part of radical left politics, whether in the form of mass social movement mobilizations or the articulation of those movements in more democratic political parties.”

On Moving Lines and Network Life – “The biggest technical hurdle turns out to be: convincing companies that they need to lose a few percent of profit to creating a quality product.”

Fire and Forget: On Violence – “Fire and Forget is military jargon for a type of missile guidance that can hit its target without the launcher being in line-of-sight. The expression is symptomatic of a new type of warfare in which the people firing, killing and destroying are emancipated from the fear for their own life and the direct physical -or sometimes even visual- contact with the victim(s) of their shooting. The exhibition Fire and forget. On violence currently on view at KW in Berlin asks whether this loss of direct physical confrontation has led to a new definition, production and perception of violence.”

Hologram Performance by Chief Keef Is Shut Down by Police – “Banned by the mayor of Chicago: Chief Keef, from a secret Chicago location.”
