I didn't read either Ulises or Foucault just before my September trip - but I may as well have. "This is the paradox of social media that has been bothering me lately: an 'empowering' media that provides increased opportunities for communication, education and online participation, but which at the same time further isolates individuals and aggregates them into masses - more prone to control, and by extension more prone to discipline." This, too, is what I have been observing, tapping in to, and more recently, resisting.
