Stranger in a Strange Land 2013-01-19: Digital Culture Killed My Dog

Playing tracks by

In the Hall of the Mountain King, Katamari on the Swing, My favorite james taylor song, Hard Reset, Gimme the Mermaid and more.

This week, aaronJacob and I examine the state of the digital world, wondering whether our state of technological growth is a good thing or a bad thing, much the same, or if that growth is perhaps a little overstated. Is it making us mentally unstable? Does it help us escape or confirm our biases? Does new technology annihilate old modalities? We'll spend our electronically-scored time delving into as many aspects of our collective computer culture and online ouvre as we can in two hours, everything from viral video, memes and remix art to pitched copyright battles and very real cyberwars, piracy and hacktivism to censorship and surveillance. Not to mention the insidious, darkest corners of the web; conspiracy, violence, cyberbullies, trolls, and even hauntings.
