A lot of what he talks about sounds like it ought to be in a science fiction novel, even though it’s clearly relevant in present day urban contexts. There’s this whole wash of undigested newness and interactions between society and technology, and not only do we not know what to do with it, a lot of us don’t even realize that it’s here. I call it our Fascinating Modern Age.
