Evgeny Morozov on Tim O'Reilly in The Baffler's new issue


April 1, 2013

 

Friends,

 

Our new issue hits the mails on Thursday and should begin reaching you three or four business days after.  If you haven't subscribed, please don't delay.

 

Modem and Taboo marks our first issue with contributing editors Susan Faludi and David Graeber, the first in our anniversary year, 

and the first ever in color, about which we

recently discoursed with design writer Steve Heller. 

 

Evgeny Morozov's "The Meme Hustler: Tim O'Reilly's crazy talk" is available now at our website, with our compliments, and a guarantee that you won't read a better essay on technology this year. 

 

As Evgeny writes, "The enduring emptiness of our technology debates has one main cause, and his name is Tim O'Reilly. The founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media, a seemingly omnipotent publisher of technology books and a tireless organizer of trendy conferences, O'Reilly is one of the most influential thinkers in Silicon Valley. Entire fields of thought-from computing to management theory to public administration-have already surrendered to his buzzwordophilia, but O'Reilly keeps pressing on."

 

But so does Evgeny Morozov, over 16,000 words of the kind of fearless, intelligent, necessary criticism you'll encounter everywhere in the new issue, from Thomas Frank and David Graeber on contemporary politics to Thomas Bernhard's previously unpublished homage to Arthur Rimbaud. Subscribe, and enjoy!
