Re: [-empyre-] Self-programmable media activism; just cheap talk?

Yes, I am saying that...
I am wondering what we have lost by making digital media (as opposed to
more tacticle media made the hard way)  a (if 
not the) central methodology in the activist/artist/media-practitioners
tool kit. Thinking like this may be antithetical 
and counterhistorical, but I think it is an important question to ask. In
my post, and specifically, I touch on blogs vs 
newspapers, because I have experience working in both media, but I think
these comparisons are legitimate  to make 
between all older methodologies of social organizing and the new alienated
forms which have come 
to replace them.
