what’s in this "Adventure" for you?

This is a site about technoculture, explored through science, marketing, and imagination. It is a tale told through Tekno, a shape-shifting robot from the future and Robert Kozinets, his erstwhile cosmic channeler. It is conveyed in art and words, sound and fury, a graphic novel waiting to happen, emotionally illustrated by music and soundscapes. This site is something different, for those who think they like to think differently. 

The intention is mind expansion, in the direction of contemporary reality. Ontodelic, if you like, expanding the understanding of what is really real. If you are looking for something precise and commercially viable, the consulting sites and big data specialists are in the opposite direction. This is a place for contemporary and contemporaneous communal collective contemplation. Contemplation around the idea that new forms of technocultural understanding and the crafting of new belief systems around them are imminent things that must happen before we can come together, plan, and improve our lives and our worlds.
Technology is our environment now. For over 95% of the time in our days, we move from connected screen to connected screen. Technologies are our surroundings now, as increasingly agentic sets of devices and infrastructures. Culturally, technology is a systemic force as well as a materialist and inexpressible ideology.
So Tekno, like all technology, is a sigil: a symbol of both a benevolent and faithful ally and a frightening new Other with vast powers.
The consumption of contemporary technologies such cell phones and augmented reality are constantly transforming what people can do and how they can do it, irrevocably interacting with and unendingly impacting a range of other social forms to create what are, ostensibly, new forms of culture: the various identities, practices, values, rituals, hierarchies, and other sources and structures of meanings that are influenced, created by, or expressed through the consumption of sophisticated and connected devices like computers and cell phones. Cultures collect around those technologies like colonies of mosquitoes around soaked swamps. Videogame virtual landscapes, selfies, TikTok challenges, emojis, avatars, memes, and GIFs are our new playplaces.
Technoculture inflects human experience, while capitalism injects consumer desire into the mix. Consumer desire, marketing desire, capital financial market desire is designed into the flow of our sophisticated devices, their features, their apps, their business models and service logics.
Technologies inspire us to construct dynamic new vocabularies, practices, self-presentations, and forms of connection. They stretch us and make us grow. And in return, we plug them in. We charge them and they change us.
Likewise this site –Tekno’s Cultural Adventures—offers a loosely guided tour of the technocultural landscape, It offers a uniquely curated social media experience, one that is open to your participation, that welcomes your ideas, observations, even your obsessions and the things that keep you up at night.
Fill in the boxes with your ideas, reactions, your nightmares and dreams about technology, government, socialism, capitalism, the modern world. This site is grounded in the belief that it is the integral purpose of our time to somehow responsibly change course and integrate ourselves appropriately with the Tekno world of machines and the ecological world of ecosystems around us that sustains and nourishes our being and, in fact, constitutes it. Before it becomes too late, we must seek and find understanding and create new and improved belief systems and codes of appropriate human behavior.
This website is where a robotic being from a future time can use his time with you to ask for stories about reality, about the future, about being human.
What you gain is what you give. Quiet, collective, contemporary contemplation. And perhaps, the gifts of communication. As Rob’s father Michael used to like to say when embarking on a new adventure: Let’s see what happens.
“Tekno, are you ready for the next adventure?”
”Preparing transmit beam, Rob. Response pattern gamma: comlink: let’s rock and roll!”
