Our culture fetishizes the new technology

Antes que se vaya para el College y como un propedéutico creo deberiamos leer y tratar de entender lo que en su muy interesante artículo Ideant nos quiere dar a entender.

Siendo un seguidor de lo que pasa con technologia y los avances que en el area educativa se producen me he sentido aludido al tratat de comprender las citas que su autor hace y las consiguientes mutaciones en mis marcos referenciales. Su autor postula:
Since Marx, we have understood that the 'beauty' of capitalism is that those whose labor is alienated end up financing capital's ventures as well: I work at a car factory so I can buy a car. Social media, then, is merely the latest course in this never-ending spectacular feast in which, as Doc Searles pointed out: "the demand side supplies itself." And who are we technophiliacs to resist the spectacle?

Y continua con su análisis cartesiano al comparar producción de conocimiento con capital, socialnetworking con consumismo y termina haciendo apologia de la represión del Estado(gobierno) con terrorismo por un lado y por el otro, el canibalismo social con lo mas moderno de la tería del consumismo(vives en los EE.UU?).

El enfoque es antropológico pero obviamente se puede aplicar la educación y al aula de clases en la medida que somos maestros y alumnos, consumidores de algo que ya se produjo y que mediante la influencia de los medios (en cualesquier forma que se puedan identificar) nos tratar de hacer creer o que estamos produciendo sino transformando las bases de un desarrollo social, hegemónico y capitalista.
