So here we have Nathan Jurgenson, who works for Snapchat, arguing, quite sincerely, with a vocabulary drawn from new media studies, social theory, and posthumanist theory, that instead of being more mindful about our use of the internet-connected devices that enable devotion to services like … well … Snapchat, “we may need something more mindless.” Herewith the cutting edge of late capitalism! (It’s rather blunter than it ought to be, I think.)
