Using transparent, readable prose, conceptual artist and poet Kenneth Goldsmith’s manifesto indicates how our time on the web just isn't wasted yet is kind of effective and inventive as he places the adventure in its right theoretical and philosophical context.
Kenneth Goldsmith desires you to reconsider the web. many folks suppose responsible after spending hours observing cat video clips or clicking hyperlink after hyperlink after hyperlink. yet Goldsmith sees that “wasted” time in a different way. in contrast to previous media, the net calls for energetic engagement—and it’s really making us extra social, extra inventive, much more productive.
When Goldsmith, a well known conceptual artist and poet, brought a category on the collage of Pennsylvania known as “Wasting Time at the Internet”, he approximately broke the web. The New Yorker, the Atlantic, the Washington Post, Slate, Vice, Time, CNN, the Telegraph, and lots of extra, ran articles expressing their surprise, dismay, and, eventually, their interest. Goldsmith’s principles struck a nerve, simply because they're brilliantly subversive—and without end shareable.
In Wasting Time at the Internet, Goldsmith expands upon his provocative insights, contending that our electronic lives are remaking human adventure. whilst we’re “wasting time,” we’re truly making a tradition of collaboration. We’re interpreting and writing more—and rather in a different way. And we’re turning options of authority and authenticity upside-down. the net places us in a nation among deep concentration and unconscious stream, a kingdom that Goldsmith argues is perfect for creativity. the place that creativity takes us should be one of many tales of the twenty-first century.
Wide-ranging, counterintuitive, engrossing, unpredictable—like the web itself—Wasting Time on the net is the manifesto you didn’t understand you needed.
