In deze Revue schrijf ik over de relatie mens en machine, de impact van technologie op ons leven, mijn boek Artificial Stupidity, de initiatieven van Gent M en andere projecten.

The worry piece has a standard formula and predictable conclusion. It begins with a personal anecdote, cites Sherry Turkle, metaphorizes media consumption as food consumption with a tie to health and morality (McDonalds often ends up on the losing side of the metaphor, despite their nugget makeover), the author confesses his own “unhealthy” technological practices, nods to technologies’ benefits, and ends reflexively with some comment on the likelihood that the article itself is probably too long to keep readers’ attention.
“Oh nee, ik heb een worry piece geschreven” dacht ik toen ik deze zin las. Jenny Davis analyseert in een blogpost de vele artikels die ons waarschuwen voor technologie. Ze noemt ze The Worry Piece. Herkenbaar. 
“The Idiots are winning. #notimyname” was kritisch over technologie, maar laat me duidelijk zijn: I love the internet! Daarom een snelle Revue met random Internet Things.
