The Dark Side

Another (what I am sure is going to be a) great event organized by the Center for 21st Century Studies at University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee: The Dark Side of the Digital.

Think of it less as the Dark Side à la Star Wars, but instead rephrase Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, the very last words of the album, after the final pulsations.. “There is no dark side really. Matter of fact, it’s all dark.”

    Damn it! That was going to be the final line of my paper for it. I actually was thinking about writing a conceptual paper that takes off from DSotM, with a series of aphorisms related to the albums several songs but rewritten for the contemporary moment. Or something.

    Back to the drawing board.

      a good coincidence! Does not however mean that you should not use that line in your paper too! I would like to read that paper – sounds like a good idea.
