The Motor City Critico-Hacker Connection

Speaking of Art-Car Talk, this week I am fortunate enough to be in the Motor City giving the DeRoy Lecture at Wayne State University. The Deroy Chair of English, Steve Shaviro, is by far one of my favorite contemporary writers of theoretical fictions (his term). His blog, The Pinnochio Theory, is quite popular for those who like smart, critical investigations into what I have previously called avant-pop culture.

Shaviro wrote an excellent review of Ken Wark's The Hacker Manifesto which you can read here.

Meanwhile, Wark reviews Paul Miller's Rhythm Science here.

UPDATE: While you're at it, check out Shaviro's most recent book, Connected, or What It Means to Live in the Network Society.
