I’ve always been sceptical of manifestos, isms and movements. They typically corrupt themselves and end up in a car crash. The same goes for ideology.

I have two questions:

In what sense is accelerationism distinct from prior isms?
Distinct or not, do I want to be associated with it - or don’t I have a choice (perhaps Marc can answer that one…)?

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

Hi - I have a naive question - does accelerationism deal with issues of pollution, extinction, and so forth? Can one wait for accelerationism? Has one already waited?
Thanks, Alan
