TM 2010 >> It’s Future, Now or Never

February 4, 2010

There is no time for diplomacy
Futurity, now!

You may or may not have a problem
If it turns out you do try
o1 write down the problem
o2 think really hard
o3 write down the solution

Fiction your life
why not become the change you want to see
yes you look ridiculous
but why, by what standard?

Who owns time?

Go, atemporality!
10 years life span MAX

Come on you,
dress up and
bring your Facebook friends

Venus is a silent star and
you can do a lot of good work
with the materiality of
dead regimes and colonialism

{Quotation mash-up by Sterling, Zielovski, Barbrook and FabAgit}

Side note:
In London we were introduced to the idea of thinking ridiculously far ahead by members of the Long Now Foundation. Against all the optimism implied, we also found out that the procrastination of nuclear disarmament can make this long term thinking very quickly obsolete.

Future anybody?!
