it's also very interesting to observe how the old media are becoming
more and more permeable to blogs and D.I.Y. information. This phenomenon
is not due to a fascination in more democratic information sources (the
traditional media holders hate new media and people involved with it),
on the contrary -- the pressure is rising due to the growth of the
'eyes' (digital cameras and all the new devices) that are watching the
same events that mainstream media are reporting to us.
- Vito Campanelli, interviewed by Geert Lovink here
the reframing of the commonplace that new media (im)prove old media in
terms of a permeation: tapping the growth of eyes in the virtuality to
actualise a force in and on the mainstream. Does this connote a force of
seeing which is agonistic, a will to see, or grow eyes, to contrast to
the representation of the Netopticon?
