what about books?
somehow I have the impression
they should be replaced by Manga, Comics, or
'klick me - down load me' literature?
when saying "they should be" I more think, that this is
becoming a fact.
is there anything to regret?

what about the internet?
somehow it is replacing TV with a different kind of touch,
a different kind of remote system. it is not cloning
but doubling reality:
reading isn't an issue at all. looking neither.
it is more an active way to be destressed and disturbed.
to kill time with your fingertips.
but mainly it is going to be a working place.
work as selling and consuming...

what about the academia?
moving in. moving in.
electronic gentrification of the mind.

what about writing?
these line, I just key in without a spell check, without
a concept, without any preparation or intention. I key it in on
line, on a monday morning, I key it in waiting for somebody to respond.
I key it in because my idea about a talking back community
is fading.

what about politics?
it is everywhere. contaminated.
enlightened in its literal sense.
lets assume somebody for dialog.
