"Technology's development (Photography, Cinema, The Internet) is often pushed ahead and funded by pornography. This book explores that connection. A collection of essays and transcribed presentations from monochrom's Arse Electronika conference in San Francisco in 2007. Another 'edgy' compendium from RE/Search, synthesizing for your pleasure future societal conceptual border-crossings. Be ahead of your time and read/contemplate/savor futuristic ideas, before the mainstream corporate culture machine waters/dumbs them down into mere consumable style and image. The porno effect accompanies every new technological development. Immediately after producing his famous bible, Gutenberg used his press to print erotica. Photography was utilized just as quickly. And so the technological advances continue."
