Blog Entry One. Zero.
by Nishant Shah published Sep 17, 2012 last modified Apr 24, 2015 11:50 AM — filed under: , ,
The digital world is the world of twos. All our complex interactions, emotional negotiations, business transactions, social communication and political subscriptions online can be reduced to a string of 1s and 0s, as machines create the networks for the human beings to speak.

The euphoria, as I had suggested, manifests itself either as a utopian view of how digital technologies are going to change the future that we inhabit, or woes of despair about how the overdetermination of the digital is killing the very fibre of our social fabric.

A friend and I were at a cafe in Bangalore the other day, when an acquaintance walked in.
