The Mainly Annual
EastWesterly Review/Postmodern Village
18th Annual
Conference

Cornelius WeberPhantom of the Oprah: Televisual Haunting and the Cultural Traces of the Restless Soul (Train)
by Cornelius Weber

Weber explores the imminent retreat of Oprah as another manifestation of what never leaves: the constant checking of one's memories against the brutal reality of reruns. Taken to its metaphysical extreme, is this not what it means to live beyond embodiment? Behold, we hold the clicker and press the hand of God.

Robb BossThe Joy of Accounting
by Robb Boss (Feat. Sharon from the Art Department and Linda from Marketing)

Maybe a happy little spreadsheet lives over here. And there are some nice little numbers living in the spreadsheet. And over here looks like a place for some happy amortization. Just some happy little auditing going on . . .

Andre 3AllenThe Blue Screen of Def: Techno-Hypno-Hop-Know-Cool, or MicroHardcore
by Andre 3Allen

Little more than an extended metaphor comparing AutoCorrect to Auto-Tune, 3Allen mostly just "kicked out some jams" in this sly marketing session demonstrating the surprisingly functional and overlooked Microsoft product Zune Pass. I didn't understand most of what was said, but the free MP3 player was very nice.

Tobe HancockThe Blues Scream of Death; File Sharing, Share Cropping and X-ploitation from Roots to Rootkits and Beyond
by Tobe Hancock

If the new economy is all online, and the new expectation of access to creative work is that it be free, how can the Money Men get their cut without turning their server farms into virtual plantations, asks Hancock. We can only hope that the slope from high-tech prophets to lowball profits won't slide to this -- nor do we see much stopping it.

Jenkins WangApocalypse Nuge: Sweaty Teddy and the End Times, an Eschatology at Arrow-Point
by Jenkins Wang

The presentation lacked something until the Great White Buffalo appeared.

Papers, Part 5
