Lookback in Anger

How I stopped worrying and started talking to myself

It has been confusing sight for anyone coming to the 3rd floor of Vimcar office - me talking to myself while holding a mobile up. Having to explain what I'm doing is fast becoming a chore, but it has definitely been worth it.

I - Morozov on Tech Criticism

The latest Morozov piece in Baffler is brutal. Nicholas Carr took the brunt of the hit.
