Practical City Magic

Designer Matt Jones, recently gave a presentation at the New Zealand conference Webstock called ‘The Demon Haunted World’. It’s a good read if you’re at all interested in “the rising urbanisation of the planet and the rapid digitalisation of that urban fabric”. The presentation covers three themes, to quote it:

  1. Reclaiming some optimistic visions of the future we might have lost sight of.
  2. Ways in which hackers and designers are making re-configured versions of some of those futures-past.
  3. Some wild proclamations about the magical future we’re weaving…

Lovely stuff Matt, lots of food for thought in there.
