Erik Hobijn over techno-parasieten 

Techno-parasieten zijn volgens de definitie van Hobijn 'apparaatjes die gebruikmaken van gedeeltes van onze verworvenheden, speeltjes behept met opmerkzaamheid die technische storingen tot gevolg hebben.' Technoparasiet 00020004C leeft van de lantaarnpaal. Het is een soort bloemkelk dat het regenwater opvangt en het licht van de lantaarn omzet in energie, met als doel het creëren van een potentiaal verschil.

On the contrary, the media had come to infuse all of society...   Read More
