Thus, new information technologies and communication become complex and powerful panoptic surveillance equipment in very flexible and multidirectional flows of determining the selective behavior. Well contrasted with the old centralized visions of "Big Brother" Orwellian, this new multipanoptism operates on two levels. First, material, supervision of self-made daily-social action. And second, the symbolic construction of a dominant patterns segmentary consumer attitudes, emerging hyper plane and iconocratic of a new subject schizoid, held at the banal spectacle.
