HOW WAS SHE SO PRESCIENT?!
Thank you, Susan Sontag. This quote is from the complete 1978 Rolling Stone interview with Jonathan Cott. It’s so depressing that she died in 2004, right as the internet was getting important. Can you imagine Sontag’s On Tumblr? (Or maybe she kind of already wrote On Tumblr. There’s a whole section of the interview about the importance of fragments.) Or Against Interpreting Tweets? Or Profile Pic as Metaphor? Swoon.
