Re: <nettime> The Californian Reality (from: New Geography)


     "Wow! Speak for yourself. I would be sick if I had that much
     money - I think, as I've never, ever been anywhere near that
     amount - and would, I don't know what I would do, actually,
     sounds pretty utopian to me. What do you do with that much cash?
     Is that where all those SUVs and iPads come from? Now I begin to
     understand...

     We are a family with a child on half that."

Same is true for us.

One of the more egregious fairy tales of our time is that more education
equals greater income. Live with people outside of such bourgeois paradigms
and it becomes obvious that such generalities are the product of cultural/
economic narcissism.

Thanks for the reminder, M.
