art-ists and bot-ists
Douglas Rushkoff warns us to Program or be Programmed.
If we look at ourselves over the last couple hundred years, we’ve done very well at efficiency. In that done-very-well-ness, many of us have become bot-like. We’re not sure what to do without being told what to do. We’ve become the machine.
Funny how we tend to think when we use tech, that we are becoming inhumane, stupid, et al. Perhaps tech really can help us to get back to us, by taking over on the automation part.
Perhaps tech can take care of (help us with) that stuff that is too big to know, but can be automated.
Perhaps people can keep on (or re-learn) that stuff that is too big to know, but can only be.
Reminds me of this:
The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. -unknown
All the flavors of success.

and so.. let’s do this first: free art/ists
