cut & paste: ethnography 

Ethnographers typically begin their research with a set of research questions from which to guide their observations. Do you feel like there's something missing from your life if you don't blog for a day? If a behavior is rewarded, it is more likely to be repeated. If it is punished, it becomes suppressed.

cut & paste: cult classic 

This fantastic cult classic authentic Dalek commands keeps getting better year after year. You want to put on your custom button and flashing lights with brand new pictures. The subservient battle hardened silver androids resembling humanoids in  armour and date fact-file. This is the collectors group of vinyl and rubber, sensor rich mannequins that have selfishly saved thousands of lives by being 'accident-prone'.

cut & paste: magic 

I had seen the Magic Shop from afar several times; I had passed it once or twice, a shop window of alluring little objects, featuring three authentic Cyberman commands. Being asked to become a wizard often is a powerful experience for a user. In the ancient Egyptian mysteries it was attributed to the god of catastrophe and drowning.

cut & paste: love 

Check out this girl. I think she's in love with you. Do you know a weed when you see it? Of course, one person's weed is another's flower, so the answer is partly personal and philosophical. When I start painting I shall stop writing!

cut & paste: machine image 

When I read the advertisements in the paper I see they are all lies. Funny little Martians that laughed at us humans for eating real potatoes! Featuring Menacing Motor Action! The making of the big machine progressed all the more rapidly for this. Once you push the "Upload Photo" button, depending on your connection speed, it may take a few minutes to upload. When freedom is practiced in a closed circle, it fades into a dream, becomes a mere image of itself.

simple quote: 12 stories and a dream 

He was particularly interested in the questions of thought transference and of apparitions of the living, and in November, 1896, he commenced a series of experiments in conjunction with Mr. Vincey, of Staple Inn, in order to test the alleged possibility of projecting an apparition of one's self by force of will through space.

unsorted cut & paste 

Fantasies about the body and technology and human/machine or organic/inorganic combinations. There's just typed words. You see this attempt to go through language to something beyond. Is it as real or more real than reality, is it mistaken for reality, or is it a new reality that shows up the constructed, performed, artificial nature of our old off-line reality?

cut up cut & paste 

We must learn to subvert existing cities. It's the way to finally take charge. All you need is a computer, a viewpoint and the ability to express it. The separation and hostility between the "world" of art and the "world" of everyday life finally exploded in deep and voiceless grief. I did not know even the circumstances that had precipitated the conflict. Nothing has ever happened here, and nothing ever will. Conflict of interest, competition and exploitation are, in this context, notions devoid of content, punctuated by sharp screeching sounds; automatic equipment was intoning the phrases of the researchers who study cyberspace addictions. Are they addicted too? They expect everything and have nothing to fear, and at that point we'll see some amazing social changes.
