A response to Jonathan Franzen's "Liking Is for Cowards. Go for What Hurts": The re-contextualization of technological devices within the framework of sexual love is an incredibly fruitful pursuit.

One month after the introduction of Google+, the debate on "real vs fake identities" goes on. I see a lot of that on Google+ and Facebook because I have many Second Life users in my network, and many of them have chosen to be pseudonymous. In particular two of my best friends, Khannea Suntzu and Extropia DaSilva, have made this...

Exploring the concept of cyber-identities, their application, evolution and necessary reformulation "Perhaps it's impossible to wear an identity without becoming what you pretend to be."

Something from the Past-Future-Present. "Imagine, if you can, a small room, hexagonal in shape, like the cell of a bee.

Keep writing. Keep writing, and don't stop. No matter what happens to you, just keep writing. Write on paper, write on wood, write on walls, write on clothes. Write on everything. Continue to write, and don't even think of ceasing. Write until your hand hurts. Write until you don't have any idea what you are even writing about anymore. Write like...

In June 2009 I mapped the protests in Iran with fervor and anxiety. It is possibly the largest collection of public video and images tracking the protests almost minute-by-minute. They are all on Hypercities, a mapping platform developed by Dr. Todd Presner and his research group at UCLA Digital Humanities. The Arab Spring prompted me to...

The sad, sad demise of Greenpeace by Wilson da Silva GREENPEACE WAS ONCE a friend of science, helping bring attention to important but ignored environmental research. These days, it’s a ratbag rabble of intellectual cowards intent on peddling an agenda, whatever the scientific evidence.
