Chris Olson wrote this initial take on the representation of BMO in the cartoon series Adventure Time for a class paper. In the paper he argues that BMO\’s representation in the series demonstrates the fluidity and hyperreality of identity and the idea that we come to develop our sense of self via our interactions with our online social networks.
We will be furthering this idea, which I discuss briefly in today\’s article on the movie Her. But to get at the initial idea, read Olson\’s great paper: Adventure Time, BMO and the Networked Self.
