Phantom Computing, Silicon technology & Human Merging

“Literary scientist and media theorist Friedrich Kittler talking about computer language and operating systems being reflective of socio-cultural trends. Professor Kittler discusses Torvalds (1991), phantom computing trend, and optical communication
systems. He concludes with the breakthrough of silicon technology, specifically, the silicon retina, for-shadowing a futuristic merge of computer technology with human biology. The histories of the networks themselves reiterates Kittler’s model for the march of technology
seeded by conflict, war and the military, and subsequently filtering into commerce, institutions and then to “us”, the social/political body.”
