  • He may have had a laser in his watch and a radio in his lighter, but even James Bond didn't sport gadgets tattooed to his skin. Now he could, thanks to the development of ultrathin electronics that can be placed on the skin as easily as a temporary tattoo. The researchers hope the new devices will pave the way for sensors that monitor heart and brain activity without bulky equipment, or perhaps computers that operate via the subtlest voice commands or body movement.

  • From a 2003 study, we can see that only does the average American (regardless of age, class or gender) spend about 11 hours PER DAY using media - but he or she also does not realize nor remember their media use most of the time. in the twenty-first century, we navigate through a vast mass media environment unprecedented in human history. Yet our intimate familiarity with the media often allows us to take them for granted. Media use has become: automatic.

  • example loved ones communicating at the airport: calling every couple of seconds: empty communication, micro-coordination as compared to the dancer in Pedro Calderon’s story: to an external observer this seems to be an empty (meaningless/purposeless) activity – like our immersion in media seems meaningless. however, one could see this as the dancer explains when asked: as a form of pure thinking, a pure being-in-the-world the world is hypercomplex in part because of media, yet we strive for redundancy - which can be seen as a harmony of all parts (“this makes sense; this is beautiful”) so for example in relation to this particular presentation: I am trying to give you an aesthetic account of media life perspective – telling a good/harmonious story – I am alos trying to do this within the set limits of this conference (within 10 to 12 minutes), which is an ethical account of the MLP. this position – ethical as well as aesthetic, praxeological as well as ontological and epistemological – is what we see as the solution to the so-called “emptiness” of our hypercommunication: the position of the super-observer the super-observer is a solution to Luigi Pirandello’s dilemma that every human being shares: we cannot see ourselves live. however, in our current media life, we CAN. we can, because media make visible what is invisible like art, as Merleau-Ponty observed, media put at a distance what is otherwise too close: and today this means: our lifeworld, ourselves.
