in regards to the last bit of my previous post... I posted this little thing back in april when I was writing my rem koolhaas paper :
"notepad- rave scene as social manifestation of the new metropolitan condition caused by transnationalism, acceleration in telecommunication technology. very interesting and beautiful reconciliation of the psychic and hyper-rational industrial. creation of a truly transnational place-less space, defined by the electronic interface. everywhere and nowhere. everything and nothing."
which is funny, considering how it's really NOT that. or at least, it's like the ultimate failed experiment of modernism.
