Hyperconsumption

"...The first event for Advertising Week in New York City will be a ceremony to name five characters and five slogans to a new Madison Avenue Walk of Fame. They were selected from a field of 52 characters and slogans by a public vote on a Web site, sponsored by Yahoo and USA Today; about 600,000 people voted."

I find it absolutely sad that people let corporations control their public spaces - essentially letting corporates co-opt and charge rents for access to those spaces. But that's what consumer culture - a much bandied about but little understood term - really means. Just one of my many reasons for disliking nyc.
