#books - Byung-Chul Han -- Shanzai: borrowed from @candle who has written a good post on it (https://kool.tools/blog/shanzhai.html), I think this book uses some really interesting historical examples and philosophical ideas to de-nature the ideas of originality and intellectual property, but I also agree with candle's thoughts that in their haste (it is a really short book) the author sometimes ends up being overly general, that something is either an "inherently western" or "inherently Chinese" way of thinking, which are claims that can probably be complicated by deeper historical investigation. I also wish it lingered more on the design elements and culture of the titular Shanzai designs!! they only really come up in the last chapter and it's a very, very short book! (Relatedly, I found this book chapter much more helpful on that point: http://realtimechina.net/files/REALTIME_Making-Digital-China_Chap04.pdf)
