Back around the New Year, Gila and I recorded an episode of our jolly film podcast about Fritz Lang's silent dystopian classic "Metropolis" (1927). The plan was to get postproduction done and release it sometime around the second week of January.
Then the events of January 6 happened, and we backed way the heck off from that plan. Those of you who know the film understand why.
I was debating whether or not to scrap the whole episode and redo it about another film, but when I reopened the edit last week the discussions felt newly relevant somehow.
So anyway, here's the latest "Modern Technology Watches." https://modern.technology/2021/01/29/modern-technology-watches-episode-211-metropolis-1927/
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
