Yeah, I think that coming in and doing curation and aggregation in many ways is the new ‘go out to a small paper and earn your stripes covering the school board.’
Man, I so want that to be true—but I’m not sure that I believe it. Coscarelli follows the quote with a little sidebar rumination, and it’s worth reading. For some reason the whole thing leaves me unsettled—but I’m not sure why. As you know, I’m a fan of curation… and really not a fan of the school board.
I think it might have something to do with stock and flow. Maybe I think too much flow early in life stunts your growth. Maybe I think the very thing you need to do most as a twenty-something is take a deep breath and a step back and make something new. Maybe I think there’s just way too much flow out there already. I don’t know; I’m still trying to figure out why I had such a strong reaction to the idea. I’m curious to know what you think.
This Flickr gallery created by Britta Gustafson is a delight. She imagines Blade Runner set in San Francisco—which was of course the setting of Philip K. Dick’s original story “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.”
In the reimagined movie, where does Deckard live? How about creepy gene-engineer J. F. Sebastian? All the answers are here.
“Such a pretty city! All it needs is a few gratuitous fireballs.”
I love this genre. More movie location-scouting via Flickr, please.
