Wednesday midday, 12th October 2011, Sydney, Australia
are you reading this
on a plastic screen?
on a paper page?
can't recharge my lines-for-poems notebook
can't recharge the paperback i'm reading
can't recharge the books i write
(can i read my own handwriting?)
the internet is an ecosystem
of interruption technologies
said the sci-fi guy
we no longer have roots
we have aerials
said the situationist
('the sci-fi guy' is author cory doctorow)
('the situationist' is cultural theorist mckenzie wark
