Origins of this content
This texteo mixes (or creates a montage with) three elements: the ideas and images of cyber studies and transgender studies activist and theorist Allucquere Rosanne Stone, my writing describing one of the binaries raised by my reflections on LFYT 2007, and two more dialectically related videos. In my blog post "On Slogans" I write: "I ask you to think of the following slogans—penned by committed artists from long-past revolutions, times, and places, and then followed by my own slogan responses—as a call to arms for how we might better muster today's technology to contribute to an ongoing project of improving the possibilities for presentation, interpretation, and abstract social evaluation, human interaction, perception, and epistemology, through media praxis."
Explains Allucquere Rosanne Stone: "My primary way of presenting my theory and research is by performing it. By this I mean theatrical performance, usually in the form of monologue with technical augmentation (music, video, slides) ... However, from time to time I still advise some great students on how to do academic writing."[cit]

Cyberculture studies can be characterized "with a single passage by cybertheorist Allucquere Rosanne Stone (1991) who defines cyberspace as 'incontrovertibly social spaces' in which people still meet face-to-face, but under new definitions of both 'meet' and 'face.'"[cit]

One of my three founding calls for this project is working collaboratively: benefiting from the diversity of our approaches, training, experience, and positions leads to the best media praxis. We need to be brave enough to teach each other and work past specialization, in the variety of languages in which we are comfortable and trained.

"The boundaries between the subject, if not the body, and the 'rest of the world' are undergoing a radical refiguration, brought about in part through the mediation of technology."– Allucquere Rosanne Stone

Online documentary presentation on YouTube disturbs many binaries— public/private, self/other, male/female—initiating connections inconceivable without the technology. At the same time, YouTube closes down the construction of coherent communities and returns production, consumption, and meaning-making to the isolated individual, reestablishing the reign of the self.
