Reading: Remix Republic

Remix Republic by DJ Fadereu claims to be the "first proper book on Indian media theory". It represents a slice of 21st century India where mythology, philosophy, religion, history, media and technology mishmash in complex and unexpected ways. Below is a blurb about it from Sacred Media Cow: "India is predicted by many as a rising star in the global village nightsky, but only one book describes the new zodiac. In the dark theatre of DJ Fadereu’s mind, Google Earth and binary computation copulate with Hindu avatars and Vedic timekeeping, Nietzsche necks with nadabrahma, and Baudrillard blows apart Bollywood.This cybernetic ride flickers uneasily through the vast landscape of Indian and Western techno-philosophy."
