erik davis on the trickster god

from Erik Davis (being interviewed by RU Sirius at Salon):

But in my view, technology is more like a trickster: It scrambles established codes, overturns truths and constantly hoodwinks us with unintended consequences. And that’s especially true of communication technology. Remember, Hermes, the Greek god of messages, is both a trickster and a magician.
