Hot Tub (picture) Time Machine

One thought on “Hot Tub (picture) Time Machine”

  1. I have to wave my Luddite freak flag here a bit. As all three Feinberg girls know, I view the displacement of real things with digital simulcra with a great deal of alarm. “France” in Epcot is not France. Steve Winwood sampled into a hip-hop mix is not Traffic. And a casual phone snapshot run through an algorithm is not a photograph. The problem is not Instagram per se. It is the ease and pervasiveness of Instagram crowding out and ultimately displacing a craft rich in cognitive reward. Read Matthew Crawford’s “Shop Class as Soulcraft” for a great discussion of this issue.
