Read full description of the books:
Interesting Q & A with a dromologist re: relationship of speed and society. Uninhabitable speeds of technology have unexpected and disruptive consequences, possibly in spite of the facile nature with which people interact with social media. Instantaneous, total communication has not necessarily put an end to history, but made it merely complementary to the ability for a social group to communicate certain ideas at a certain rate of speed. Virilio sees shared, emotionally-charged civic unrest, entertainment, or non-localized workspace as a sort of destruction of boundaries that demand answers to questions of privacy.
The ability for the whole world to experience an event together creates a form of panic, albeit a controlled panic. He likens it to a circuit, wherein the Arab Spring protester, the OWS squatter, the weekend warrior are trying to inhabit a cogent relationship with a society it is trying to escape...and come back to his or her own identity changed, as though one were using experience as a sort of gate that expands into a tunnel that eventually spits one out at the front door of the more tolerable version of one's life.
Virilio imagines that people explore the concept of identity like tourists. The cybernetic geography is fluid, the architecture completely imaginary. Because of this freedom, there will be an ever-tightening noose of surveillance on the population, in order that the old leaders of our world may at least subordinate what it does not understand. Internets. Tubes. Maps. The government doesn't like the idea that it's not even remotely capable of being the relevant disseminator of mythos, of history. It's no longer centralized, but atomized, granular and invisible. Surveillance poisons the well.
