Recap for the week ending 2nd May 2010
By absolute post volume, sure, things have slowed down a bit. But I think you’d be hard-pressed to say you didn’t get your money’s worth this week on Speedbird. Just in case you’re coming late to the game:
– We took a good careful look at how surveillance itself is changing, and asked if all the watchfulness one contends with in the contemporary city is actually making anybody any safer;
– remembered that for a billion or more people on Planet Earth, everyday life can trump science fiction’s most graphic visions of catastrophe;
– and finally proposed some qualities we might want to design into urban mobility as it evolves under conditions of networked informatics.
See you tomorrow…which just happens to be the third of MAY twenty-TEN.
