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:

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