Recontextualizing Real-Time

People aren't just Reading Only and Reading and Writing. The Media has gone a step further in putting in our hands the tools to virtually Read and Recontextualize information on the fly. It just isn't being fully realized yet.

Read Re-Write Culture

With tools like the DVR combined with a digital capture card and a low end PC - we can now spit the media right back at the media. What else should we call this but reading and re-writing. But that's not what's unusual about it.

The maleability of the data can then be floated through all sorts of different outlets of citizen journalists and netizens - other friends in the ether so to speak, to eventually become a product of mass culture. Raining down epiphanies on odd recontexts that otherwise never would exist.
