cyberculture

c

Over the last few days I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts while in public transportation, and there’s one which I think is quite outstanding:
It’s Greg Niemeyer’s lecture on cyberculture. (Don’t be fooled by the title “Foundations of American Cyberculture”!) The lecture is part of Berkeley’s great lecture series webcast.berkeley, and it nicely wraps up the whole range of topics from internet basics to online identity to gender to cyborgs to online culture.

The whole lecture is quite inspiring, and it’s great. (And you learn some interesting bits and pieces about traditional rituals in remote Swiss mountain towns as well.)

Please note that this is absolutely fresh and up-to-date: The most recent lecture was given this Monday!
