Bruce Sterling. Historical Narrative, Futurism and Emergent Network Culture

Bruce Sterling, noted critic, science fiction writer and net theorist, lecturing on historical narrative, futurism and the emergent network culture. In this lecture Bruce Sterling discusses the (r)evolution of historical narrative in the context of contemporary and evolving network culture. He ponders the trans-temporal and trans-cultural effects of network culture in relation to cultural signifiers and rhizomatic subversions of postmodern culture, focusing on the collapse of historical narrative embedded in a disintegrating digital culture. He brings to light a philosophy of history that is evolving towards an atemporal condition of the emergent net culture, relegated to a dissipation of time-bound origins and identities. Citing the likes of Slavoj Zizek, William Gibson, and Arthur Kroker, Bruce Sterling invites us to re-shift a framework in understanding the nature of history, preempting a retrospective futurism, one that begs for accountability, consequences and a future history in the context of its rapidly evolving fragmented, hyper-linked, cross-referenced and anecdotal systems of history.
