I'd love to put out a call to eliminate "post-" and "new" from our 
theoretical/whatever vocabulary - new aesthetics, post-digital come to 
mind - but these words, sometimes with "modernism" buried in there - 
appear over and over again and at least for me result in the 
commodification of thought, as well as a kind of linearity based on 
dichtomies such as new/old or post-X/X and so forth. Again, canons and 
genres raise their ugly heads; I'd argue for an anarchic approach to just 
about anything, but then there's be the "new anarchy" or "post-anarchic" 
or whatever...
