Bonne Fete

smithers:

[Aside] Once again, a year has passed and that means it is time to reflect (from Paris!!) on what I have "accomplished" here at sportsBabel. And that means a quick list of some of the ideas I was most fond of, from a thought process described as "sort of like a popcorn machine" (thanks Lex).

Ten posts, in no particular order:

  1. Interactive Waste Disposal
  2. Towards the Invisibility of Cameras
  3. Guilty By Association
  4. Central Intelligence
  5. The Control Room
  6. bODY_rESAMPLE?
  7. Lightness and the Tactile Burden
  8. The Authentic Hologram
  9. Body Treble
  10. Production Schedules

I began my doctoral studies in November at the European Graduate School, which clearly had a substantial influence on my work here at sportsBabel, as I was exposed to many new ideas and theories, perhaps most notably the work of Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri (and through them a further development of my reading of Deleuze and Guattari). Stalwarts of this blog such as Virilio and Baudrillard also continued to be of significance; sadly, we mourned the latter's passing this past spring.

But even more than these thinkers new and old, I am indebted to my colleagues at EGS for their contributions to my transformation and growth over the past year. An Elegy (for Saas-Fee) is written in their honour, and I look forward to seeing them again in only ten short months.
