"At the rate technology is progressing, however, we may eventually be traipsing around culturally nude in an urban rain forest, androids seamlessly integrated with our devices."
--James Wolcott in Vanity Fair on the case of self-identification vs. the Kindle and the iPod, into which he manages to work "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," "Clerks" and that classic Hugh Hefner female-acquaintance bit. I think he goes to some unwarranted conclusions here -- what is replacing the movie posters on my walls exactly? -- but cannot resist pointing out that if Kindle users are culturally nude, that would logically make the rest of us cultural never-nudes. You're welcome! Happy Friday!
