You email your report, check the position of your stocks, play your favourite Rahman, and upload new patches for your favourite simulation game—all using the same three-inch-by-five device that fits into your palm. You chat, share, play and blog, even check for directions to the new Italian restaurant in town online. Everyday life is now digital. ‘Digital Cool’ is simultaneously about individualisation, with its make-believe detachment (‘Cool’), and the fierce collectivism facilitated by New Media. There’s the young woman waiting for the tube while swishing through the bestseller she’s just bought on her iPad, indifferent to her surroundings; there is also the fury of the mainly online Pink Chaddis campaign of 2009..Printed Pages: 264.
