[NetBehaviour] Max Herman text/response to Finsbury Park project

Beautiful and thought provoking, for me, the text of Max Herman about the
Finsbury Park project!

Great food for thoughts for my latest personal work, which include making
wearable and artist books with upcycled obsolete electronic devices
http://suzonfuks.net/be-like-body-obsolete-4 - ...particularly about
wearables and sustainability, the transformation of culture and the places
of culture from static to moveable....

Very inspired by this paragraph:

*look forward to the best and most necessary capabilities of technology
and culture.  Our relationships to place, space and time, will be in many
ways mediated and manifested by our technological "garments" which both
provide us physical protection from the elements and help us to acquire
and communicate our knowledge, ideas, and values.  Networks of every sort
are indeed the habitation and habit in which we live our lives. *


Thank you for sharing Ruth and Max for your writing!
cheers
