The process by which one's network of technosocial engagements and identity produces work or material that becomes well-known in a network. Also, a machine set in motion for producing notoriety and fame.
Behind every famous machine is a switching machine. More efficient machines get others to switch for them. Is a switching machine equal to a famous machine?
Paige Saez says, "Google this sentence: Like the artist, the networked self is an aggregator of information flows, a collection of links to others, a switching machine...it's a lovely rabbit hole".
