Dis dress

dress in different lights from wired.com

My eyes must really suck because even the one on the right looks gold and white to me, but in bad, slightly fluoro-blue, light.

I don’t agree that this whole dress trauma we’ve all been through is a privileged distraction from “the issues” or a stupid way to celebrate net neutrality or whatever (though, yay, net neutrality!).

In fact, I’m hoping DressGate will be a turning point in our societies whereby we become way more self-critical about what our brains think is self-evident and natural and the only, inevitable way to see things. That’s probably a bit optimistic. But I do think it could be cool to talk about the dress picture in an educational setting to introduce the concept of ideology.

PS: On this matter I have to admit I’m wrong and the Daily Mail is right. The dress is as blue and black as the Northland by-election.

PS: Yes, this (this?!) has brought me out of blog-tirement and I’m not sorry.
