The TruthThe preceding couple of days, it has become extra clear that Google has become a very important source for defining our Truths. Not only Laura’s Spin-Plant (first Nettime post here) but also the 911truth.org issue, which Erik wrote about here and here , are unmistakable examples of this. I want to add 13 more (glitched) by Google produced new alternative “Truths” here.

    Hey Rosa,

    this is very nice to see, especially artistically. Could you maybe elaborate a bit on your theory of glitches? Do you think – eventually – these glitches may be seen as a truth, because this is Google’s presented image of reality?
