Evolution of text, technology, and us

During the readings and posts this past week, I was reminded of a great video from several years ago by Pearl Jam, called “Do the Evolution”. The video is a great animated history of the world and society, and is pretty pessimistic and grim. It crams a ton into a few minutes.  In particular, the image that came back to me was workers sectioned and separated off from one another (like Ong said writing / text separates), with the devices internally attached. It’s worth a watch.
