Resistance is Futile

Manufacturing Nostalgia:

Maybe Professor Rheingold momentarily forgot that democratizing media inherently diminishes the aura and authority of any so-called experts. Or maybe not even media democracy will stop academics from being pretentious tools.

That ‘media democracy’ was your last, best shot against the scourge of academic pretension should make it clear that you are doomed to lose this battle.  Time to suck it up, go to grad school, and join the tool ranks.  May I suggest a Visual Culture PhD?
