In a conversation I had with a good friend of mine and eruditisimo Professor, slight concerns expressed by the direction in which humanity has taken in recent years, these last 10 to 15 years specifically. My biggest concern is the way in which mankind has been interacting socially, how we live in a world where if we want to talk with someone, break up the walls of China in the name of faster communication, today in matters of seconds, Yes, friends, seconds? In this I remember what he said Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto: our merchandise is the artillery with which we toppled the walls of the great wall of China. Further details can be found at Kai-Fu Lee, an internet resource. I’m not Communist or Marxist, but you don’t have to be to realize the validity of these words. Today, our merchandise with which we toppled to the great wall of China is the communicative and computer technology. It is the commodity with which we toppled old indestructible limits to all economic activity of manufacturing, trade and capital accumulation, physical such as mountains, deserts and seas, whether be be cultural as languages.
That merchandise that I, in General and abstract terms designate communicative and computer science, technology is none other than our computers, our wireless phones, our internet, our MP3, our IPOD, and all our devices that make our present and evident reality of science fiction of the past, and sometimes obsolete. We become more expert in computers, write in Word processor or Macintosh processor what ever, if it is that we remember, we did on a typewriter, moving the tube forward, already back, where the paper was riddled with our sudden and monotonous touches of keys. At least that was my experience as keyboardist of razors in my childhood back in 1988. It was my school assignments on that typewriter for me’s most novel then.
