Print Copy of The Algorithmic Anarchist

The first edition is now on Lulu  Algorithmic Anarchist: The Book . The ‘book’  has the original A-Z content, a couple of essays from 2009, Library 451 (how some UK libraries are being neutered by US origin algorithms) and my final essay submission on green municipalism at Birkbeck in 2019.

The original as a PDF is still freely available here and accompanies the printed book, since all the footnotes etc. are clickable.

I also still have some review copies if people want to DM me on Twitter with a physical address. The cover is a watercolour sketch of a calanque near Cassis.

Newham Local Plan: Partial Commentary

I’m not all the way through this. Also there’s more commentary on the bits of Newham that I know well. All in all, developer led, architect led, full of buzzwords (curated, legibility, heritage, web, arc etc.) and not SMART

More in a while, especially when I’ve read the https://www.newham.gov.uk/planning-development-conservation/newham-local-plan-refresh  but, so far, unambitious, climate unfriendly and disappointing.
