Most days my laptop wakes up not long after I do, to connect me to the global computer network. At night, as I lie in bed, I see it doze off and begin to snore. We live and work together, cross the city together. We’re joined at the hip. I’m half Mac, I guess. Donna Haraway would call me a cyborg, a cybernetic organism, part human part machine. She says human subjectivity is increasingly dependent on machines, that we’re all cyborgs. Do machines have a subjectivity too? How is it formed, and how does all of this affect culture?
