Keller Easterling is an architect, writer and professor at Yale University. Her most recent book, Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space (Verso, 2014), examines a new global network woven by money and technology that functions almost like a world shadow government. Though it’s hard to grasp the full extent of this invisible network, Easterling argues that it’s not too late for us to change it.
The power players in this new order are associated with governments, corporations, and other non-government entities. Easterling calls them masters of “extrastatecraft,” an undeclared form of public engineering that exists outside of any recognized laws. In her book, she teaches you how to detect extrastatecraft at work, and discover new ways to “hack” it with surprising approaches to political activism.
What is this about?
This is my attic blog. It's an archive of old blog entries and posts on various blogs and blog-like things. When I close a project down, it goes here. This may move, the links aren't permanent, but if you're interested in reading stuff I've written over the years – go nuts!
CAUTION: it's about as well sorted as you'd expect an attic to be.
