Excerpt from Pit Schultz' "The Producer as Power User" (2006)
At the forefront of the still ongoing cybernetic modernization, the power user serves as an unpaid research and development unit, as a mediator to popular media culture, and a sensitive prototype of sociotechnical exploration. In many cases the power user is self-trained, almost making a living out of her skills, beyond productivity in an industrial sense, without being responsible for a specific product or task. She is primarily dedicated to her own individualization, the customization of the extended self in relation to other power users, in the form of an ongoing system configuration. Usually not too much involved as a developer, the power user actively contributes to the deployment of software tools by finding new uses for them, or documenting errors, and therefore inscribing herself into the collective process. She lives on the back end and insides of cybernetic circuitry, and constantly configures and expands it as essential parts of the household.

I will no longer have to wrap tinfoil around my head during U.S. news reports.

Best of luck in the future, my American friends.

art is similar to:

a stereo speaker, a carousel (amusement ride), a drum kit, a piano, a train, a merry-go-round, a Macintosh computer, an airplane, a clock, a robot, a table lamp, a subway car.

How did I find out? Go to 20Q (tip: play "Classic 20Q first, it's the most fun)
