[of course blogger ate my post] so here is an abbreviation. I'm working on a book chapter entitled ""The Technology of Difference"" and I got ""thumbs up"" from Salmon, so I'm feeling comfortable about it now. Until then, I had no idea if I was on the right track or not. And she knows the track. While cruzing through some references, I found the following quote in Baurillard's selected writings in a chapter called ""Consumer Society"" that stopped me cold:
