Our Age

Abstraction is the characteristic of our age. Extract from a larger work in progress: Age of Abstraction: Perils and Possibilities of our Time.

This is the era of adultescence, of passive welfare, junk bonds and paper kingdoms, of value added, of "spin"; of multi-million dollar actors, personalities, tennis and soccer legends; of sms messages, mobile phones; of gameboys, x-boxes, beat-boxes, ninetendo, of Lara Croft, of Matrixes, of Freddie vs Jason, of google ten second information; and of extraordinary innovations that come along and turn the world upside down, regularly, like an unexpected relative.

Ideas are kings, practice is for mugs...
