"BLACK HOLES IN THE ELECTRONIC GALAXIES" | 2012

Did you know: there are black holes in the internet, humans are creating informational black holes, and "exits from light" and information have been anticipated in numerous movies?

Drawing from McLuhan, Baudrillard, Hawking, and Hollywood filmmakers, this essay theorizes a radical take on the future of "resistance" — not through "representation," but via "disappearance."

You might not look at WikiLeaks quite the same after reading this essay. Co-authored with Agreen Wang and to be published in The Unconnected: Social Justice, Participation and Engagement in the Information Society, Paul M.A. Baker, Jarice Hanson, Jeremy Hunsinger, eds. (Peter Lang 2012).
