Wasting Time on the Internet by Kenneth Goldsmith

By Kenneth Goldsmith

Kenneth Goldsmith wishes you to reconsider the web. many of us believe to blame after spending hours gazing cat video clips or clicking hyperlink after hyperlink after hyperlink. yet Goldsmith sees that “wasted” time otherwise. in contrast to outdated media, the web calls for energetic engagement—and it’s truly making us extra social, extra inventive, much more productive.

When Goldsmith, a popular conceptual artist and poet, brought a category on the collage of Pennsylvania referred to as “Wasting Time at the Internet”, he approximately broke the net. The New Yorker, the Atlantic, the Washington Post, Slate, Vice, Time, CNN, the Telegraph, and plenty of extra, ran articles expressing their surprise, dismay, and, eventually, their interest. Goldsmith’s principles struck a nerve, simply because they're brilliantly subversive—and eternally shareable.

In Wasting Time at the Internet, Goldsmith expands upon his provocative insights, contending that our electronic lives are remaking human adventure. while we’re “wasting time,” we’re really making a tradition of collaboration. We’re interpreting and writing more—and rather another way. And we’re turning recommendations of authority and authenticity upside-down. the net places us in a country among deep concentration and unconscious stream, a country that Goldsmith argues is perfect for creativity. the place that creativity takes us might be one of many tales of the twenty-first century.

Wide-ranging, counterintuitive, engrossing, unpredictable—like the web itself—Wasting Time on the net is the manifesto you didn’t understand you needed.
