Fictional places | Matthew Sheret
"I like the idea of mining my data in thirty years or so, realising I spent most of my twenties at trendy coffee shops, airports, and places that don’t exist." Yes, this. This is the main reason I wrote Ghostcar - which is now one of my main reasons for using Foursquare.

The Future Is A Blank Canvas Pinned To A Brick Wall « Matthew
"We access that history with tools that were, almost entirely, the props of science fiction my parents might have encountered – if they read it. My phone is my sonic screwdriver, the internet my TARDIS; these are the tools with which I unlock and manipulate time."

Emo « Matthew
"Emo’s rise coincides with the explosion of social networking, the fracturing of commodification, the emergence of micro-trends, the mainstream adoption of alt-porn tropes… Emo’s the musical centre of a pop-culture whirlwind that doesn’t really seem to have been explored much, and when it has it’s often been addressed either in dismissive or alarmist tones." As an emo apologist, I really need to write more in response to this - they're topics I've covered in my head several times.
