Buku Wasting Time On The Internet oleh Kenneth Goldsmith
Oleh Kenneth Goldsmith
Using clear, readable prose, conceptual artist and poet Kenneth Goldsmith‚Äôs manifesto shows how our time on the internet is not really wasted but is quite productive and creative as he puts the experience in its proper theoretical and philosophical context.
Kenneth Goldsmith wants you to rethink the internet. Many people feel guilty after spending hours watching cat videos or clicking link after link after link. But Goldsmith sees that ‚Äúwasted‚Äù time differently. Unlike old media, the internet demands active engagement‚Äîand it‚Äôs actually making us more social, more creative, even more productive.
When Goldsmith, a renowned conceptual artist and poet, introduced a class at the University of Pennsylvania called ‚ÄúWasting Time on the Internet‚Äù, he nearly , and many more, ran articles expressing their shock, dismay, and, ultimately, their curiosity. Goldsmith‚Äôs ideas struck a nerve, because they are brilliantly subversive‚Äîand endlessly shareable.
In , Goldsmith expands upon his provocative insights, contending that our digital lives are remaking human experience. When we‚Äôre ‚Äúwasting time,‚Äù we‚Äôre actually creating a culture of collaboration. We‚Äôre reading and writing more‚Äîand quite differently. And we‚Äôre turning concepts of authority and authenticity upside-down. The internet puts us in a state between deep focus and subconscious flow, a state that Goldsmith argues is ideal for creativity. Where that creativity takes us will be one of the stories of the twenty-first century.
Wide-ranging, counterintuitive, engrossing, unpredictable‚Äîlike the internet itself‚Äîis the manifesto you didn‚Äôt know you needed.
