Re: <nettime> Clouds, volcanoes, politics and the economy


Excellent text, Miguel! Thanks! As the daughter of à Meteorologist (it was my mother's profession), I am raised among cirrus and cumulus nimbus, very poetic clouds!
And about displacememt you are right, we seldom move, we are moved.
Some years ago I had à long conversation with the French philodophet and urbanist Paul Virilio, who has written at large about velocity and warfare.
He was skepticsl to the idea we are in à global world, he said it was the small anonymous places who were the backbone of the world.


Cheers
Ana
