I think you missed the contrast.  Pd is clearly not a "technological
parody", even if it looks like just a software version of patching together
synthesizers/effects.  That was the point.  I think we're going to suck all
the fun out of this expression now... I do this often enough on the list.

Other than that--GH is stupid.  and I think that's a perfectly good reason
to trash it.  I selected it as the first real example of something that I
think is a joke of technology.
