The Net

Dammbeck, Lutz
In 1996, the FBI captured American domestic terrorist and former mathematics professor and anarchist author Ted Kaczynski (aka: The Unabomber) who understood himself to be battling the increasing technologization of the world. In the mid-20th century, a host of intellectual developments—including cybernetics and systems theory, multimedia art, new concepts of psychology and military research—came to the fore and became relevant in influencing and controlling communications and mass behaviors. With the development of the internet in the 1980s, the question arose: What does the unlimited development of information technology mean for human society?
