I prepared the following webinar as a response to narratives being spun around Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. Now that it’s done, with a good spit and polish by Jason, I believe it may be one of the more important presentations we’ve put together. This talk offers insight into the philosophical and technical underpinnings of today’s machine readable society. I also explore what avatar life may mean for us, sacred beings navigating a world of manufactured digital noise while attempting to curate a reality imbued with meaning and authenticity and love.
Here is a link to the slide deck. If you’re not up for the whole talk, which clocks in at about 3.5 hours, please check out the six minute clip on liberalism, positivism, and moral economic markets. As a resident of a Quaker city who lives just blocks away from Eastern State Penitentiary, a Bentham panopticon, I feel surfacing these histories as the world continues to speed up beyond our ability to integrate all this new information is one way to slow it all down and take a deep breath. Would love to know what you think.
Here’s the whole talk.
