When I set AG coming up on 3 yrs ago, I decided not to include a blogroll because they seemed to me to be generally in a state of digital ruin. I could see they once functioned as a community building tool, but all the dead links I encountered said that was becoming more and more in the past.
It also recalls for me, now, an erstwhile passage from my exploration of digital ruins, Post #74
What changes and what stays almost the same in the experience of abandonment and ruin as one travels through digital-analog space? This socially created, technologically mediated, transduced space deforms, re-forms, informs, conforms, confounds, conjoins the experiences of human and machine individuation and collectivity moment to moment, each arising as ephemeral wholes dependent on their decaying parts.
The passage now exists as a saved draft in my dashboard, and now here. The words in random order still occupy Post #74.
No conclusion to all this, just sayin.
At any rate, I like the current update in the site. It's getting much closer to the sense I have of what you've been working towards.
I hope everyone has a thankful Thanksgiving.
