RE: [-empyre-] Baudrillard and the future of theory

The idea the Baudrillard's death spells a terminal point for theory
(only a polemic) ignores so many other forms of theoretical forms of
communication; i.e. McLuhan's media-based theory, Baudrillard's literary
pataphysics, Flusser's dialectic between the essay and the thesis. 

As with Kan's Hacker Manifesto, I saw it for what it was right off the
bat -a beautifully crafted literary proposition for additional work on
the Marxist project.

I think there are many different modes of expression in theory; it seems
ironic that some of the conversation suggests a hegemonic model of the
scholarly thesis-form as a 'standard'.

In some ways, I thought we might have gotten farther than that.  The
Krokers, Wark, Flusser (RIP), and many others are most definitely trying
to keep the modes of expression wide...
