Re: <nettime> The System Development Corporation

These distinctions (humans, animals, machines) are artificial and not helpful (also a slippery slope - the end game in that direction is racism/identity politics.)

Speech is most likely a mutation only 50,000 years old (we didn't get quite used to it yet.) The difference between the speech technology and machine-mediated communications is centralization of the latter (everyone controls own speech apparatus, electronic communications are controlled by what - 20-30 people grand total?)

The centralization is the only troublesome aspect of machines, and it needs to be fixed. The rest is fine.

Oh, so you give into the idea of human resources? :)

Well, I beg to differ: let's stay in the animal realm, one step below
such artifice.
