  1. 4 bargains of the apocalypse:
    a. sloanism: planned obsolescence
    1930s origin of post-fordism
    novelty for a class: avant-gardism

    c. vehicular space: mobilized personal space
    car and computer = agents of passivity
    d. semio-capitalism: image-commodity
    screen as external production

  3. deep exteriority found anywhere, cracks
  4. public amateur: preaching to the choir = red herring

  9. smooth publics: hinternet
