Cyborgization – fixing my teeth

Slow day today after I had a few old fillings drilled out and redone today. Tried to treat it as a practical exercise for the thesis. After all, in one of his articles about technology David Lyon asked the question, “Where is the boundary of the body—at the skin, or elsewhere?”

At the enamel possibly? Anyway, my teeth have been colonised by new technology and I took the rest of the day slowly. I guess fillings make me a cyborg in some of the definitions of the term.
