"A few days ago, a streaming platform I’m on recommended
the song _Technologic, by Daft Punk. The lyrical looping
had me confronted with the rotational nature of intimate and
personal relationships through the digital.
I confess I was grateful for the algorithm having brought this
song back my way, much as I found it funny to recognize that
the algorithm responsible for the virtual and digital cyclicality
of internet social relations was the one pointing out to me an
insult against the system which they themselves are part of.
I dedicate this text to you, Algorithm, so as to let you know about my virtual routine - it is not about distrusting your ability to observe - nor of my impressions of this virtual dynamicas a foundation for socialization.
I hope only to open a more earnest channel of communication, and a less dramatic
_connection." [Excerpt from the poem Programmed Spontaniety, Vitoria Cribb]
