BlogReAnimator: "It's all in the code"

While this blog is on what I assure you will be a very brief hiatus, I thought I'd do a PZ Myers and recycle a couple of old posts from way back when nobody was visiting (actually not that long ago ;) ).

From April 14, 2005:

Today I came across a 2003 Ctheory article by Peter Lurie, Why the Web Will Win the Culture Wars for the Left, in which he argues that the deconstructionist nature of the Web favours the Left, regardless of how much conservative content the Web contains. Given that the Left has itself been for many years divided over deconstruction (and postmodernism), this is a most ironic observation.
