    Mondo always oversold its ken, which of course was their chosen job, but lets not sugar-coat it. I read the last paragraph in the quote above as, “Hey, SOMEone has to invent the woo-woo!”

    “Today’s Schizophrenic Information Society”?
    Schizophrenia’s not really like that, and I hear tell that this metaphoric use of the disease has become offensive at best.

    I miss Mondo. I was fresh out of high school and had fully embraced cyber/rave culture as my religion and Mondo 2000 along with a couple choice books by Douglas Rushkoff were my bibles.

    “we also need to trust a system that we [i]cannot[/i] understand and that is
    immeasurably bigger than we are. In other words, we need to both act as
    rational human beings and also as believers.”

    The difference is we can understand these systems, unlike religion where
    if you start asking too many “why” questions you hit the faith wall and
    everything unravels.
