I don't understand what accelerationism is yet, as I need to read a lot
more - and a few times - and let it sink in. I find it hard to understand,
to be honest.

I'm interested though in the connection with Donna Haraway's Cyborg
Manifesto

And I'd like to know more about the accelerationist aesthetic, what it is,
and why.

I'd like to know the general view from people on this list - as we are all
new media/ net art/ media techy types , who have been experimenting with
art, networked technology and politics for ages, is this something we
should
a) take very seriously
b) embrace
c) be sceptical of?
d) be scared of?
e) wish that we'd thought of

cheers dave
