Berkeley Center for New Media Lecture

Video of a recent talk at Berkeley, on “The Human Computer in the Stone Age.” This is from the histories of prehistory project—on weapons and tools and how, according to thinkers from the mid-century, they determined the human. It’s a bit tough as a video as this time i delivered a written paper; but the images and some moments are fun so I’m reposting it here. Huge thanks to David Bates, first of all, for the invitation, and also Abigail De Kosnik, Nicolas de Monchaux, Nasser Zakariya and Stefan-Ludwig Hoffmann and at BCNM Laurie Macfee , Lara Wolfe, Tara Shi, and their colleagues.
