For those of you who may be encountering futurological discourse for the first time, here are some useful supplementary readings (the list can be expanded considerably if you have a taste for this sort of thing):
Barbrook and Cameron: California Ideology
Purdy: God of the Digirati
Lanier: Cybernetic Totalism
Hayles: Liberal Subjectivity Imperiled
Haraway: Manifesto for Cyborgs
I have been known to rant and witticize in this plangent vein on occasion as well, if you're a real glutton for punishment.
