On the Internet, Everyone Knows You’re a Cat

The Sundance Film Festival points us to We Live in Public, a documentary about Josh Harris that will likely interest many bloggers who use their web presence in a way described by the film’s title. Living in public was apparently part of the reason that Mr. Harris had what he described as a “controlled nervous breakdown.”

The cat at the end of the trailer deserves some attention, since the documentary’s subject, who introduced cameras into almost every part of his life, addresses the cat as if the cat’s presence is intrusive.  You might want to think about the trailer’s cat in relation to the opening comments in an essay called “Derrida’s Cat (Who Am I?)” that you can find at the bottom of this page.
