Noise vs. Information vs. Labels

J.Yoo's picture

Noise vs. Information is an interesting idea, because it ties neatly into the label discussions we've been having; if you don't have a label for something, you don't have a translator for it.  Does that make it just noise?  If we achieve Haraway's utopia, murdering the Goddesses and championing the Cyborgs, will our own identities become so much static?  Haraway says she would rather be a cyborg than a Goddess, but I'd pick the opposite.  These women have exact labels, which is a sight more than the rest of the undecided world.
