Nostalgia for the present

You’re going to ask who said this aren’t you? I’ve lost the name. South American writer. Female. Contemporary. Anyway, she nails it. I think it’s a mixture of everything happening too fast (the future arriving all at once if you like) plus a lack of historical anchor points and then a lack of future vision or narrative. It’s like we’re all chasing ghost cats in thick fog in the middle of a zombie apocalyse.

    Cannot recommend highly enough Douglas Rushkoff’s Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now. He addresses this exact concept quite well.

    Thanks Tim. Been on my radar for a while, but I’ll now get a copy.
