these are my notes from optimism and everyday life with claire pentecost @ threewalls on 2009/11/05.

  1. 4 bargains of the apocalypse:
    a. sloanism: planned obsolescence
    1930s origin of post-fordism
    novelty for a class: avant-gardism
    b. cybertime
    c. vehicular space: mobilized personal space
    car and computer = agents of passivity
    d. semio-capitalism: image-commodity
    screen as external production
  2. no outside/inside of capitalism
  3. deep exteriority found anywhere, cracks
  4. public amateur: preaching to the choir = red herring
  5. detroit: largest urban agriculture
    stubborn optimism v. deterioration

  8. realm of values that specialties were designed to eliminate
  9. smooth publics: hinternet
    mess hall, continental drift

  1. servants: slaves commanding slaves: late capitalism
  2. human zoo
  3. they need numbers to fill their business plans
  4. .com bubble, irrational financial growth, net worth, social factory, valorization
  5. party-thrower to find talent
  6. audiovisual: hester, guattari; capacity for groups to take hold of them, apply them in an appropriate way to reactivate a collective sensibility and intelligence, to make the equation media=passivity disappear
  7. media infrastructure: spectacle media-market: commodity-image
  8. “do whatever you want”: destroy what prevents creation, bacon’s cliches
  9. we’re in the “business of programming people lives”
  10. raised by tv, but resentful not joyful: alienated by his social adoption
  11. art as prophecy: ‘we’re making “cultural history”‘
  12. soon “our dreams will be programmed by others” = heteronomous society
  13. avatars
  14. oedipus: luvvy: gilligan character: harris’ mother
  15. “new boy in town –technology”; leroi-gourhan: gesture & speech
  16. social darwinism
  17. fame: legitimation desperation: capital is more powerful
    self-worth depends on viewership

  27. sex, with yourself, they’re in your fantasies
  28. big brother = collective unconscious
  29. manhattan = gated island
  30. everyone featured in we live in public is a commentator, journalist

  32. surveillance is nothing: the future of
    pleasure: robotic music teachers, magnetic brain stimulation thwarts addictions, berry sweetens taste of sour food, touching across the web, micro-manage our olfactory conditions
