Detroit Tag City? What?
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?
