the "death of representation" ? - "the notion of cyber-era as a pure post-modern notion" ?

it is as if Bishop Berkeley had never lived. Go to the door of your room - open it and then slam it shut. To paraphrase Berkeley, I refute your notion thus.

the idea that a new means of communication and of display replaces real structure is no different to the idea that the arrival of electricity will have provided a new force, a new dynamic for building. Powerful though the force of electricity may be, it has yet to be able to hold up a built structure. Theoretically of course it can - indeed it is a schoolboy conceit to be able to prove that with enough electricity passing through cables, the powerlines will stay up without the need for pylons.

why does the cyber-era mean the end of representation ?
