Stand Alone Complex

While originally intended to underscore the dilemmas and concerns that people would face if they relied too heavily on the new communications infrastructure, Stand Alone Complex eventually came to represent a phenomenon where unrelated, yet very similar actions of individuals create a seemingly concerted effort.

It has ties to social theory, as illustrated in the work of Frederic Jameson and Masachi Osawa.

By exploiting the mechanism of information transmission in society, one could achieve a very efficient and subtle thought control. Indeed, since people tend to modify slightly the information(and forget when it came from) in the processes of consumption (or appropriation), it becomes difficult to sort genuine ideas from modified, implanted, ones.

It happens everydays, right?



My 1st Blog starts with Stand Alone Complex definition, which will be my center idea of blog, the way of my blogging, my blogging sense, and afterall, it is my 1st blog! ^^v
