Who is Ernst Bloch?

Gossip is anger sent to the wrong address.
–Ernst Bloch

Who is Ernst Bloch? I have no idea. But he was quot­ed. in this arti­cle: The new infi­deli­ty: The tech­nolo­gies that make affairs pos­si­ble also con­tain the seeds of their exposure.

It also talked about the Bud­dhist con­cept of Right Speech, and I found that idea as it relates to e‑mail (and, in fact, to LJ) to be wor­thy of much more contemplation.

Edit: There are no hid­den mean­ings in this post. I just found the arti­cle inter­est­ing when it came up on Salon this morn­ing. And I found that Ernst Bloch is appar­ent­ly a philoso­pher who wrote the three-vol­ume work The Prin­ci­ple of Hope, but the only stuff I’m find­ing in Eng­lish is quotes from that work. The rest is Ger­man, and since I’m mono­lin­gual I don’t know much more.
