Brain food after 1/3 of 2017

It’s quite my list of things, as I like grey area where tech meets politics and social. Anyway, in first (my favourite) article, there’s a glimpse of what “micro nodging” in news is, and how that might lead to quite nasty nationalism. I’m thinking how that might unleash something, which will be hard to control. Watch forces behind Brexit, Trump and wait for Le Pen in France…

Steven Wilson – Routine

I didn’t follow for a while Steven Wilson solo career (Porcupine Tree), but this is something special in my opinion. This piece is in every detail perfect. You might be not a fan of “prog rock” but his is must-see piece. Hats off and many thanks.

Steven Wilson: “Amongst the hundreds of songs I have written over the years Routine has a very special place. It’s a deeply sad story of loss and denial, but at its conclusion the clouds lift and there is acceptance at least. Having worked with her on 3 previous videos, I knew as soon as I wrote it that it was perfect for Jess to do something amazing with. Even then nothing prepared me for the organic beauty and power of the film she made, a painstaking labour of love that took her months to produce. When we play the song live I look out into the audience and see people swept away with emotion at the combination of music and animation. To find poetry and beauty in sadness is a wonderful thing I think.”
