What I saw in the Xerox PARC technology was the caveman interface,
you point and you grunt. A massive winding down, regressing away
from language, in order to address the technological nervousness
of the user. Users wanted to be infantilized, to return to a
pre-linguistic condition in the using of computers, and the Xerox
PARC technology`s primary advantage was that it allowed users to
address computers in a pre-linguistic way. This was to my mind a
terribly socially retrograde thing to do, and I have not changed
my mind about that.

I loved season 19 of South Park. It ended about as well as I could have hoped.
For those wondering: no, the overall theme of this season was /not/ that
fighting for social justice is wrong. On the contrary, it affirmed that seeking
to improve society is a laudable goal. Where it drew a line was where it was
reasonable; the point at which one's belief in their own righteousness has
allowed them to overlook their own faults and poor behaviour.
IMHO, what South Park primarily attempted to convey is that something to be
concerned about is the manner in which media and advertising wields our concerns
