Spimes and more,
This review is from: Shaping Things (Mediawork Pamphlet) (Paperback)
ive been a fan of Bruce Sterlings wringting for many years, esp. his non fiction.
This book stems from his year as a design proffessor, it looks into the whole idea behind ubiquitous computing and imagines what web 5.0 will look like, and objects that will inhabit it, the 'spime' it also outlines the principles behind his thinking.
it is also a beautiful artifact in itself, some beautiful design
bottom line its a book on design not a fiction book, it is a speculative work, a peice of thinking and the reasoning behind it. if you are into the area of thaught its great, if not it still could be for you
