Bruce Sterling stuff…

Shaping Things

I recently read Bruce Sterling’s last non-fiction book called Shaping Things, which is some visionary thinking on design and an internet of things.  Sterling’s concept of the next stage is the spime, which is a thing trackable in space and time, essentially an object that has it’s own data store attached, which is searchable.   Interesting stuff.
Here’s a link over to a WorldChanging post that has more info on recent Sterling speeches (with mp3 links) that are worth checking out.  In the SXSW speech he talks a fair amount about living in Serbia, which he’s doing this year.  He has some harsh comments on the state of affairs in America these days.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.
