From the Harvest Books paperback edition

"The supranationalism of the antisemites approached the question of international organization from eactly the opposite point of view. Their Aim was a dominating superstructure which would destroy all home-grown nationalist structures alike. They could indulge in hypernationalistic talk even as they prepared to destroy the body politic of their own nation, because tribal nationalism, with its immoderate lust for conquest, was one of the principal powers by which to force open the narrow and moset limits of the nation-state and its sovereignty." (41)

"Only two decades separated the temporary decline of the antisemitic movements from the outbreak of the first World War. This period has been adequately described as a 'Golden Age of Security' because only a few who lived in it felt the inherent weakness of an obviously outmoded political structure which, despite all prophecies of imminent doom,

Architectural History of Computing / School for Poetic Computation Code Subversions Session / Summer 2016

The Short Description on the SFPC Website

How do the physical conditions of the network influence our ideas about its history and politics? During this workshop, we’ll explore different sites in Manhattan relevant to internet infrastructure and history while developing methods for commemorating and critiquing that history with site-specific interventions.

What We'll Be Doing

We'll start the day at 111 Eighth Avenue (corner of 15th Street and 8th Ave) and walk around looking at some relevant historical sites, then head back to SFPC for a discussion and, depending on how much time we have, a paper prototyping session for projects responding to the walk and discussion.

The last decade (or decades, depending where you set the benchmarks) has been marked by large-scale political and technical failures both catastrophic and insidious, brush fires and slow burns leaving equally scorched earth in their wake. It is not always clear to what extent such failures are in fact features--global finance, the carceral state, and white supremacy don't so much fail a public as they serve a select few. Meanwhile, the tech sector actively encourages and handsomely funds fast, big failures, regardless of who or what might get burned in the process.

At the same time, spaces for productive failure--for experimentation, for questioning, for mistakes that are necessary for basic growth--feel increasingly limited, especially for anyone working in the growing deadly sinkhole known as "content." Stories that deserve months of investigative reporting are reduced to whatever packaging of outrage will serve the moment. Artists' residencies start to resemble business incubators in which the demand

OK. So I wrote some article about predictive policing. And it had lots of links, and it turns out sometimes editors see your links and are like ¯_(ツ)_/¯ to keeping those links when they publish the article. This is probably in part my own fault because I should have included those links as footnotes, and because working in print vs working online is Different, etc etc--the point is I feel really rotten that lots of really good reporting wasn't given due credit. Putting this list together does not totally fix it but will hopefully help people interested in the topic.

Also: there is a part at the end of this gist that explains my mixed feelings about the piece in general. The citations are probably more important, but if you want to watch me tableflip a little scroll down.
