I intend to sketch out some ideas based around an article written by Gilles Deleuze in 1990. The article is called Postscript on Socities of Control and suggests a number of ideas around social change since the second world war. Whilst it paints a certain picture of modern society which may seem hugely problematic, and suggests that the role of computers and technology is central to a loss of humanism, there are nevertheless other areas in Deleuze’s work which highlight the hugely positive grassroots role technology can play in resisting corporate hegemony. Hope the posts are of some interest.
