  1. Future Slum

    "New, privately developed apartment complexes there – the exact same apartment complexes of visual interest to architecture magazines such as the one for which I work – might, in the end, simply be too small and too cramped to become anything other than the slums of tomorrow.

  7. Bytes of Life

    "…lifeblogging seems mostly like a byproduct of an always-on society. If you do something but fail to record it online, did it really happen?
