[new] media critique (Avg. Score: none / Raters: 0) (#3)
by Anonymous Stranger on Tue Oct 21st, 2003 at 06:09:51 PM EURODISCORDIA TIME

I would say that one of the most hitting critique these days is the big p2p file sharing scene that has evolved across the (postindustrial) world. although an opportunity more or less for the relatively rich, including the working class in many first world countries, high speed connections and relatively cheap home computers take control over their own desires by downloading products for free and thereby discommodify (is there such a word? well, you know what I mean) the message often laying implicit or explicit in the products lyrics, scripts, product placements etc. in many ways, the commodification of public space is not that hard to deal with when more and more people are taking it for granted that commodities should be free. I wouldnīt go so far as to say that the 01010100101001s nike square is useless, but I am convinced that the discommodification is really happening and therefore does not need to much representation (such as artwork etc.). or maybe I am just way way to optimistic... henning, malmo, sweden
