Links for a Saturday
– Kazys Varnelis drops his conclusion to Networked Publics, awwww yeah. For the record, I agree with him that we’re now into a post-postmodern era; I don’t think it’s yet safe to further characterize it.
– On rereading Aramis. Again, I agree: Latour’s cautionary tale of a systemic failure of will and/or imagination is required reading for urbanists.
– Great seeing Soo-In Yang and David Benjamin present at last night’s Eyebeam confab. I thoroughly endorse their praxis of Flash Research.
– I’m reading Iain Borden on skateboarding, space, and the city, and it’s breaking me heart. At least when I was twenty and poring over copies of Thrasher in a wretched New York City winter, I could look forward to hitting the Brooklyn Banks come springtime and doing my damndest to come aggro. I suppose some thirty-eight year olds have the option. I am not among them.
