This appears to be a useful feed (just discovered it this evening), one I’ll keep my eye on for links, if nothing else. (No idea who’s behind it, though.)

Internet Geeks and Freaks. By Virginia Heffernan, New York Times Opinionator.
re: Social Media as Disco:
“We haven’t seen anti-Internet riots yet, and we won’t. But there’s a palpable and potentially productive cultural antagonism around this summer, between those who use the Internet ardently and maybe somewhat compulsively, and those who rail against it, and worry that it distracts from more wholesome forms, including paper books and music on vinyl.
“With social media’s collectivist principles — I can picture Twitter as a dance club — the new media, like disco, seem to jeopardize the cherished cultural concepts of authorship and soloing.”
