In an interview today (it was one of those interviews filled with good clips - I can't wait to release the audio) I commented that I progressed from hand-writing my academic papers to typing them (first on a manual, then on an electric) to writing them on a computer with a word processor in the space of my five-year undergraduate degree. The 21st century arrived, I remarked, somewhere between 1981 and 1986. For the rest of the world it arrived in 1989, as we saw the first of the mass movements created by chaos and connectivity spread across societies. I'm reminded of my remark by this short post from John Connell.
