Fixing fluidity

The Stuff of Culture
Felix Stalder

"Crucial to maintaining the object-oriented view of the immaterial is to fortify the boundary between the fixed and the fluid.

Objects, on the other hand, with their distinct form and shape, with their clear beginning and end, can be numbered, measured, and controlled. Only then can they be bought and sold in the markets..."
