Re: <nettime> Facebook

I'm there, and for me, it is as much my location (Arabia) and how able I am to access global networks from here - it isn't bad, but we do have some firewalling to political, adult, etc. For me, I feel that if I were in the Western World, I would be in a position to have a different stance. Here in Asia, the sociopolitics are extremely different to the point that if you have not spent significant time here, you would not realize, and I am not speaking to the far more restrictive Saudi society.  I think it is easy to have a Western politics and think that they just translate tot he rest of the world. This is also not being in defence; it is merely pointing towards the differend.

The politics of the infrastructure in the time of the Stacks is something I struggle with.
