Volume Two, Number One     (January 2005)


Television says nothing but: I’m an image, everything’s image. Internet and computers say nothing but: I’m information, everything’s information. Its the sign making itself the sign, the medium doing its own advertising (Jean Baudrillard, Paroxysm, 1998:72).
