In a way, the visions of the 1960s have become a reality. As Archigram and superstudio among others anticipated, we plug in, turn on, and tune up our environment. We are global nomads untethered in an ocean of access, floating in the flux of informat'on and capital that creates the background of our happily networked and connected lives. The enabling infrastructures of communication and data networks that were fantasized in the early modern '305, engineered in the thermonuclear paranoia of the '50s, and politicized and socialized in the counter-culture of the '60s and '70s, are now materialized, bureaucratized, and commercialized as the ubiquitous organizing structure for the post-consumer dynamics of Empire.
