Anomie in Japan. A deadly nap in North Korea. Hersh swears by his story.
Complexity economics (plus). What is money? Non-economics.
Singularity — don’t hold your breath. A step towards brain mapping. Accelerated genomics. Crypto-frenzy and schizo-security. Robophobia. Retrocomputing. Social media polarization. After the cookie.
Evolutionary heresy, today. DSM-5 as OCD. Experimental music (plus, math and music).
Wark on Pasquinelli. Marxian eschatology. Weak cosmists. The ‘crawling horror’ of kludge. Refactored agency. Banana media.
