Digital Media: It was Never about Truth…

These information environments are biased towards the accelerated throughput and bandwidth of data, largely blind to truth values. The self-propagating gestalt of integrated digital information systems appear to require this constant throughput to avoid over-extension and self-gravitational collapse.

It is something of a constant back-filling and hyper-inflating referential effervescence of naked data, sans semantics or retrospective interpretation – consequences come later. In this way it resembles an atavistic throwback to accelerated bacterial self-replication: copying, not just of the code and information content, but a recursively exponentiated copying of the process of copying itself, regardless of error and/or fatal mutation.
