Modern life, time and anxiety, and Generation A (you).
An extensive essay dealing with the essential need for human contact, the role of the self in social media, the integration of time perception into the interior monologue, solitary confinement and use of the fictional drug, Solon.
I’ve just finished watching a video I’ve rewatched several times over the past year. It’s a supplementary interview to the novel Generation A with Doug Coupland. The novel Generation A deals with you, dear reader, the internet generation undergoing retribalisation via electronic media. But more importantly, the interview references a fictional drug in the novel called Solon. As a diehard Solon user I feel it absolutely necessary to talk about what Solon is, what it does, and why this matters.
