<nettime> Quartzite


Several years ago I spent eight months offline,
driving around the U.S. and taking public transport
around Mexico to talk with people NOT using the
Internet.

I spent a day in Quartzite,and later described it in
an article as the Jma el Fna for white folks. The
editor changed it to Yankees (which made no sense).
There's also a web log if you want to read about
Quartzite and Hadj Ali, the 19th century Syrian camel
wrangler who worked in this area. February 8,2004. It
is an amazing place. Calling it a multitude would mean
nothing to those people hanging out there.
