McKenzie Wark (author of The Hacker Manifesto) has an interesting review of Bruce Sterling’s futuristic essay collection “Tomorrow Now: Envisioning the Next Fifty Years” out on Nettime. In the review Wark writes: “A key insight [for understanding the future] is to follow the language, not the money. The consensus hallucination of stock valuations, as many learned rather bitterly, only gives you a homogenized average of emergent delusions. Shifts in language, on the other hand, reveal a virtual space, where a heterogeneous cluster of possibilities may fester or grow.”
