Over on Smart Mobs they’re talking about Detroit and social software, two topics that interest me greatly.
Detroit, like the urban experience in general, has become non-referential. Its empty spaces, or “ruins” as the Fabulous Ruins of Detroit website declares, don’t refer to anything anymore. Tagging allows us to transform that non-referentiality into social experience.
Gah! Is this more than techno-gibberish?
