shift toward (everything is) communication

As the firm is outsourced into the household, the family is outsourced elsewhere. Hence we have not just the dissolution of the family but its reterritorialization. After divorce are weekend kids and long-distance partners – with the resulting communication links. Again, not diffuse, but intense relationships. Again there is a shift from the social relation to the communication, as family members stay in touch by email and every twelve-year-old gets a mobile phone for Christmas. Bargain flights from start-up airlines and Internet travel intermediators bring long-distance partners and family members together for brief, intense, yet regularly repeated encounters.
