Did you know that according to online media, David Foster Wallace predicted everything about the future?
First, The Wire told us that he predicted selfies and that we would stylize ourselves to be presentable on video screens.
Now, Salon tells us that David Foster Wallace rightly predicted that irony would ruin our culture.
But according to this article and a host of others, irony wasn’t supposed to have even lived this long….so in that way, irony wasn’t supposed to be there to ruin anything.
Anyway, “David Foster Wallace Saw It Coming” was a mini-meme, employed by some popular pop culture writers.
