Yet another call from TED to create a police state to defend the bric-a-brac that the interweb has become.

Why go back to sleep? Didn't McLuhan say that police state emerges from inability to cope with new situations arising from new media environments? His company is unable, obviously, to cope with the simultaneity of attack reports, hence his call for instating a police state to catch whoever thinks to join the broadband bandits, whereas only more sleuth literature is needed to address this issue (cf. "Footprints in the sands of crime"). Strange, doesn't it, that a forum which bears entertainment in its name doesn't recognise the value of information packages to contain crime? Hegelian syllogism distilled into computer two-bit witticism is the default format of any TED presentation, a simplistic one-sided approach widely applied and applauded.

THE ROOF
THE ROOF
THE ROOF IS ON FIRE !

11. It is amusing to read reviews of Burroughs that try to classify his books as nonbooks or as failed science fiction. It is a little like trying to criticize the sartorial and verbal manifestations of a man who is knocking on the door to explain that flames are leaping from the roof of our home. Burroughs is not asking merit marks as a writer; he is trying to point to the shut-on button of an active and lethal environmental process.
