Accidental Truthspotting: Computers and Politics

Ah, good. So, Windows = McCain, Apple = Obama?

I'll take that.


There's always the slow, steady, boring, functional. Windows is pretty non-exciting. But it did unify computer hardware and software, gave us a stable platform, and is backwards compatible.

Apple is flashy, full of "new" ideas, hip to entertainment, etc. but without substance. There's a parallel there to politics: McCain was an accurate plodder, while Obama is a flashy but corrupt insider, a hipster.

Wonder if there's more. Classical = McCain, Jazz = Obama; Modernism = McCain, postmodernism = Obama.

Subvert the dominant paradigm, don't be a solipsist.
