This is a call for papers for the 4th Issue of M/C/T a journal/e-zine
concerned with Media, Culture and Technology. For this issue, we have the
following special theme:

The Fake Issue

hyper wired times of ours. Indeed, as Jean Baudrillard pointed out years

that we are fully immersed in an environment of virtual simulation. The
quest for authenticity is not only pointless but dissatisfying as well.
