So, I’ve agreed with a friend of mine in the Modern Thought and Literature program here at Stanford to write a long scholarly manifesto on the concept of digital democracy and its prospects for our future. As part of this project I have started my first wiki. Holy moly. Wikis are very cool. I think I’m in love. Are wikis the way to digital democracy? Can we expect Google Wiki anytime soon? Will Wikis replace the mainstream media? Do wikis have anything to do with postirony? Well, as a matter of fact, no: except that I will now try to keep one for my notes on my postirony dissertation.
I am currently working on drafts of my proposal. I will post a version of that proposal, maybe, on this site in December.
The more I look the more I see postirony everywhere. If you spot postirony, send me a line. Send your information in Where-in-the-World-is-Carmen-Sandiego-style puzzle clues.
