When we dreamed of all the good the internet would do

I read a post in TechnoLlama this week which included an interesting quotation from an article in Time magazine, posted on Christmas day 2006 by Lev Grossman. The article explained why Time has declared the Person of the Year as you, and you, and you, and everyone involved in any way with the internet.


Delays: building in progress

I had originally intended that the first Convivial Café experiment would draw to a close in a few week’s time. Instead it has not yet begun. I have nobody to blame except myself, and my ability to complicate things or to spot potential complications, depending on your point of view. Let me try to explain what has happened so far and, more importantly, what will happen at Halloween.

Cameras as Convivial Tools

This essay was written by Owen Kelly and Dermott Killip in 1981 and was first published in Camerawork 22. It was highly edited and condensed from a pamphlet that we wrote entitled Shooting People Is Wrong, published by Mediumwave. I have resisted the temptation to update the arguments here, and have merely altered a few typos and amended some sentences where, in retrospect, the editing obscured or altered the intended meaning.
