If we transfer this fairy tale, this moral play, to a world of augmented reality where everyday objects are tagged and shared, who or what are going to serve as our icons? How will our fetishes - our idolatries - be revealed to us? What will be our fates?

I was chatting with Jason last night about how the price of advertising on a newspaper Op Ed page has decreased. People consider less and less what 'his Master's Voice' says anymore and/or seek out their own more suitable, tailored vox populi.
I was wondering if this disseminated information could ever become unbearable to us, given that many of us like/want/need to be told.
