#HCPP20: Digital Totality
The tension between the old and known, and the new and unknown increases.
The third revolution of production is unleashing its power into an unstable and unsettled world.
Metaphors, narratives, concepts, and explanations change – and fail to grasp what is ahead of us.
Information is power, and software – its embodiment – eats the world. While some cling to the ideas and ways of the overcome age, the new is still too fresh to fully embrace.
The old guard is building a prison of bits and bytes, drones, cameras, databases and hostile AI.
Their goal: To cement the old structures of power for eternity while the masses continue to blissfully consume their selves. That may not happen.
It is up to us to chart the new waters, draw the maps, tell the stories, and build the tools that will shape our future for lifetimes to come.
Our time is now. Ready or not, the digital totality is upon us.
