Technology, Take Us Away
Are our gadgets and gizmos troubleshooters or troublemakers?
Screens Story  March 5, 2010, by Nora Ankrum
"...As Interactive Festival producer Shawn O'Keefe puts it, Interactive is all about "what's next in the industry." It's where industry players come together to marvel at the latest innovations starting with a lowercased "i" and not only imagine how they'll make our lives better but put into motion the relationships that will lead to the "aha!" moments that will bring us to next year's next big thing. Still, judging by this year's list of panels, I'm not the only one wondering if technology simply causes more problems that it solves. Help! I'm Blogging, and I Can't Get Up!..."

The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology: A Memoir
How the one-hit UK synth-pop entrepreneur transcended the Top 40
Music Review  November 3, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...His long overdue and incredibly entertaining memoir, The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology, puts the synth-pop innovator front and center as a Quixotic figure in a whirlwind of chance, great talent, and impeccable timing – even when mainstream ubiquity went bye-bye. Dolby's storytelling highlights the music-driven first half of the book, particularly his comical dealings with Michael Jackson, which always ended up sideways..."

DAILY Music  January 24, 2008, by Darcie Stevens
"...Swift’s voice warbles, and he sings through his nose, but he’s one thing that so many aren’t: honest. He wears so many shoes that it’s no surprise the prolific songwriter had to release a collection of Krautrock instrumentals under a different name, Instruments of Science & Technology, Secretly Canadian’s newest addition..."

Screens Story  March 24, 2000, by Erica C. Barnett
"...It isn't, as two of the four experts on Monday's "Killing the Messenger" panel pointed out, as if blaming America's problems on boys and their toys is something new; that trend goes back at least as far as Dungeons and Dragons, the fantasy game that early-Eighties-era adults claimed would "destroy our ability to see the distinction between fantasy and reality," according to APD Detective Cliff Blanchard, who now investigates crimes online. What's different this time, according to Clive Thompson, editor and video game columnist for digi-cult magazine Shift, is that the people blaming new media for society's ills often have "legitimate concerns" about technology that aren't being addressed by the online world..."

Film Review  October 17, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...At shopping-mall food courts and Friday night football, the title’s interlocking men, women, and children try to connect, but can’t disconnect, or something. A hysterical hand-wringer about the stunting effects of technology, dressed up as a dispenser of unvarnished truths, Men, Women & Children takes good actors and gives them little to do but play out case studies of various scenarios inspired by this, our Internet age. Middle-aged couple with intimacy issues seeks alternate sexual partners online..."

"...condensed image[s] of both imagination and material reality." For Haraway, the cyborg is a useful metaphorical construct for thinking of feminism in terms beyond the usual "antagonistic dualisms" of Western taxonomies of identification (in other words, the way we determine that people are "other" from us). That said, we live in a moment in which wearables and other forms of technology in their various iterations make it possible to move from the cyborg as metaphor to reality, one that is particularly immediate for women..."
