Skyboxification

May 13 2012

Thomas Friedman on Michael Sandel. New York Times Sunday Review.

Quasi-public spaces (old post).

Here I quoted Arundhati Roy on the “most successful secessionist struggle in India”.

Facebook is a gated community, though not for the rich. I prefer the public squares of the web.

    Sandel on Andrew Marr’s Start the Week, BBC Radio 4:

    With Diane Coyle and Grigory Yavlinsky. Skyboxification is too small a word for the sinister thing he is describing.
