On This Week in Lines

If I have to spend two to five hours standing around with my fellow blasé Brooklynites, well, no, wait I would never do that.

Working harder and longer hours for less money, while already-rich people take the cream off the top? Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

On Post-Text is the Most Text

Not really "post-text" so much as "post-strictly-linear-text". Which has been around (and popular) at least since the first computer-based games. Way to catch up to the late 20th century, Felix!

On The Rich Life of the Urban Space Colonist

As a longtime resident of North Brooklyn, I can only say that when we whine about GENTRIFICATION, this (the topic of this article) is what is really troubling us. Neighborhoods, as in interpersonal networks of relationships and places, are disappearing. In exchange, we are getting solipsistic towers of isolated wealth, who interact with the world outside the glass windows as jaded tourists.

I still live on a very friendly block, and I know my neighbors. We say 'hi' to each other, water each other's plants, and generally look out for one another. I frankly cannot imagine surviving New York without that kind of support. Unless, of course, I somehow amassed an OBSCENE amount of money.

On Invisible Hand Left In Invisible Pocket

I feel like we're fairly near to the point where the NYT is impossible to parody, as it is already effectively a parody of itself. #meta
