"You get a little buzz when you see somebody’s retweeted you, or commented on you, or talked about you on social media. Then that buzz goes away, and you want a little more the next time, so you start checking your phone more, and you become addicted to that kind of attention, and you mistake it for presence in the world, and you can live this strange double life, which Jon [Domhnall Gleeson] lives. His social-media avatar is a very different creature than the person we see so much of in the film. It felt like it was timely, because I don’t think that issue of social-media self-presentation has really found its way into mainstream film yet."

Frank director Lenny Abrahamson talks about his film’s approach to social media, rock ‘n’ roll, mental illness, and the intersection of all three. Read the full interview.  (via thedissolve)

Amazon Vs. Hachette: What Would Orwell Think?

newyorker:

George Packer on Amazon’s dispute with Hachette:

“Like Orwell, we ought to be able to hold in our heads the complex idea that what is good for readers might ultimately be bad for writers. After all, Amazon is not a literary nonprofit; it’s a corporate giant that wants to sell everything to everyone.”

"The paradox of social media is that it offers a channel through which to communicate yourself while the technology itself shapes and limits what is communicated, and how. All these people, each of them tweeting a tiny Whitmanesque song of himself, are largely indistinguishable."

Vauhini Vara explains why Amazon’s proposed e-book deal with Hachette is not necessarily good for authors: http://nyr.kr/1n78f5s

“Amazon has a huge share of the e-book business, through its Kindle e-reader—even more than it does with physical books. If lower e-book prices were to…
